Joining a metal detecting club is one of the most important things you can do to shorten the learning curve of your metal detecting hobby. It's fun meeting new people, seeing what they found, and sharing stories and tips with each other. There are always others that can help ID your finds when you're not quite sure what you have.

Some of the activities we enjoy each month are:

  • Find of the Month Contest. Silver coin given as prize.
  • Find of the Year Contest. Cash prize..
  • Raffles for prizes (MD accessories) as well as a 50/50 raffle.
