Welcome to the Indian Territory Treasure Hunter's Club, Inc.
Club Motto: Dig for
fun, Restore when done
For short, we use the designation I.T.T.H.C. Our club was organized in January, 1969. The purpose was to gather treasure hunters together for fellowship and to grow in knowledge of historical facts, historical locations and to inform the members of such. It is also to further interest in the hobby of treasure hunting, and is very much a family oriented group.
Our meetings are held on the second Saturday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Owasso Community Center, 301 S. Cedar St., Owasso, Oklahoma. Members are also welcome to attend the board meetings at a location and time announced each month.
Visitors are always welcome at our regular club meetings. All other club activities are open to club members only. Membership dues are:
(Includes all dependents under 18 years of age)
Some of the advantages of being a member of I.T.T.H.C. are:|
- Competition - The Find of the Month contest, for example.
- Companionship - An opportunity to associate with people who
have similar interests.
- Club Hunts - Our club holds one hunt each year in addition
to our National Open Treasure Hunt. This hunt is open to club members
only. Usually a nominal entry fee is charged, with the club matching the entry amount. This hunt is usually held in October
- Education - Much can be learned from our club programs and
from talking and visiting with other club members.
- Monthly Outings - These outings are held once a month except in
May. The outings almost always have the added attraction of a covered
dish supper or luncheon
To encourage the membership to bring their finds to show at club meetings, the club sponsors a Find of the Month contest. All members are urged to
enter their finds, one each month in each category,. In the interest of fair play, honesty and good fellowship, please abide by the following rules:
