The typical monthly agenda - (What to expect at a meeting)

Meetings begin with a patriotic pledge of allegiance, a review of the prior meeting's minutes, and the introduction of visitors and new members.  Potential detecting sites are discussed, and folks share tips and success stories with one another.  This club is fortunate that some of the more active members generously display their recent finds, providing inspiration that there are still plenty of arifacts out there just waiting to be found!  There are raffles, refreshments, and a great opportunity to learn from those who have significant experience in the hobby.  The Finds of the Month competition is a forum for members to showcase their items found since the previous club meeting.  The gatherings are a great way to share opinions about new technology, advocate proper digging techniques, and kindle the inspiration to locate that next great find!  Welcome to our club!

Getting ready to start one of our club hunts.
Some of the items found at our past club hunts shown below.





1.  Before metal detecting public sites, always check laws, ordinances, or regulations that may govern your search.

2.  Never trespass. Always get permission when metal detecting private property.

3.  Never leave open holes. Leave the search area exactly as it was before your metal detecting.

4.  Report the discovery of any items of significant historical value to the local historian or museum.

5.  If you discover live ammo or a lethal object, don’t touch it. Mark the site and notify the police at once.

6.  Be polite and informative to those who inquire about your hobby. You are the ambassador of a pastime we want to protect and we will be judged by how you act and respond.
