The Garrett Memorial Hunt committee is pleased to announce new dates for the previously postponed Charles Garrett Memorial Hunt IV. Those new dates are: Friday, April 9, through Sunday, April 11, 2021. The event will still be held in Canton, Texas, and will follow the format that was previously planned.

Everyone who opted to remain on the hunt list is still guaranteed their place on our hunt rosters. Anyone who does have a conflict with this new weekend and feels that they must withdraw from the hunt is able to do so at this time. Simply send an email with your name and address to: A refund check will be mailed to you within 30 days.

All request must be received prior to March 1, 2021.

Once we have given registered participants a fair chance to make this decision, we will open up registration again for a limited number of new participants. This second-chance registration will be on a first-come, first serve basis until capacity is reached.

We appreciate your understanding of the rescheduling of the Garrett Memorial Hunt. Please bear in mind that Garrett must follow local and state regulations for public gatherings. Measures/Precautions will be taken to do so in a safe and responsible manner.
