San Luis Obispo, CA 93406
The Central Coast Treasure Hunters Association, (CCTHA), is located on the Central Coast of California. We are situated about half way between Los Angeles and San Francisco in what we believe to be the "garden spot" of the state. We have ocean beaches, but with just a few hours driving, one can be high in the mountains and the "Mother Lode" country, or deep in the desert with its associated ghost towns and mining camps.
CCTHA was started in 1984 by a group of metal detector enthusiasts. Our Club, from this humble start, has continued to grow. We have numerous Club sponsored functions throughout the year.
The General Membership meets the fourth Thursday of each month. The meetings start 7:00 p.m. at the Animal Care Clinic, 162 Cross Street, San Luis Obispo. (Corner of Tank Farm & Long Streets; one block east of Higuera Street.) Meeting room entrance is corner of Long/Tank Farm Streets. Everyone is invited to attend. See Event Schedule for March, November and December meeting dates.
Our members are hobbyists that enjoy all forms of treasure hunting, which you could say is the discovery of objects, new and old, usually hidden from view. Examples are metal detecting, gold panning, dredging for gold, bottle hunting, rock and mineral hunting. It does not matter what type of treasure hunting you enjoy. We welcome everyone with an interest in treasure hunting in all its forms. Becoming a member of CCTHA is easy. Currently annual dues are: $25.00 for an individual membership or $35.00 for a family (after January new membership prorated).
Good luck! Now that you have gotten to know who we are and what we do, enjoy our website and visit often to see what's new.
