Charles Garrett Memorial Hunt

Diggin' Texas 2020
Posted 03-13-20
Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, Garrett Metal Detectors has come to the difficult decision to postpone the Charles Garrett Memorial Hunt IV scheduled March 27 – 29, 2020 in favor of safety for all. We are disappointed that we will not be together in Canton and hope everyone understands. We will be back to you once we have decided what our next steps will be in regards to the dates for the rescheduled event.

First Monday (flea market grounds)
800 First Monday Lane
