Cheyenne, Wyo. (KGWN) The metal detector club High Plains Treasure Hunters is putting on a metal detector hunt, the “Cassie Cooper Memorial Hunt”. This hunt is in memory of a six-year-old girl that was a friend of one of the members lost her life last June in a horse accident. The club is trying to raise money to build a memorial park out at the new fairgrounds area in Archer.
The club is burying thousands of coins, to include Indian head pennies, early/late wheat cents, v-nickels, buffalo nickels, mercury/barber dimes and some good silver half dollars.
There will be three separate hunts. One for kids under 10, one for anybody who is physically challenged (including elderly) where people have volunteered to help dig, and a little more difficult one for all able bodied folks. All in different areas.
The hunt will be June 14. Registration is 9AM-10AM, with the hunts starting at 10:30AM.
The location will be at the old community of Archer. The directions are as follows:
I-80 east to exit 370. Go right (south), go around the round about and exit it on the south then take the next left (east). The registration table will be about ¼ of a mile down at a building with a sign that says “Community Center”.
The cost is $10 for an individual and $20 for a family.
There will be 14 Bounty Hunter Juniors for the little kids and a few Teknetic EuroPros to loan out to adults who may need one.
Concessions will be served
