Westchester County, New York Metal Detecting Club
New Westchester County, New York MD Club
The number of people calling me about metal detecting here in the Hudson Valley has grown so much that I think it is time to start a club. For the record, I don’t like hobby clubs for several reasons. The number ONE reason is know-it-all; I’m-smarter-than-you; My-equipment/technique-is-better-than-yours; blowhards. As a metal detectorist since 1977, I have experienced all aspects of the blowhard persona, and if you are one of these insecure, attention-needing freaks - do not expect to be welcomed into the fold.
Our new club will probably be unlike any other. You will move up the ranks of seniority by HELPING other members, and finding locations the club can hunt together. In fact, the price of full admission into our club will be hosting a club hunt at a location you found and have permission to hunt. No dues, no club officers, no “required” meetings.
My vision is a social network of like-minded hobbyists who actually enjoy meeting other people, swinging their machines, and growing/sharing their knowledge and experience base. As we get our membership together, we can explore bringing on local sponsors and equipment dealers to help us put together public relations and education projects that will benefit the club, local charities, and our various Hudson Valley communities.
The club will be based in White Plains, New York, the Westchester County seat, and will meet informally once a month to welcome new members, share finds, discuss new projects and hunts, and to recognize current members for their contributions to the club and fellow members. Our first meeting will be a get-to-know each other affair, at The Porter House in downtown White Plains (on Mamaroneck Ave).
If you are interested in attending please send an email with “Westchester MD Club” in the subject line to me at: TerrySoloman@aol.com by Monday, April 30, 2012.
On May 1st, I’ll send everyone that emailed me the day and time to meet at The Porter House for our first meeting where I will kick things off by providing the location and day of our first club hunt! I am looking forward to meeting you. - Terry

Come out from under your bed today...... DO SOMETHING!
May I be a member of your club, even though I might not be able to make any meetings? I can try to make a hunt when I can. TTC
Goodnight, Jesty Puller, wherever you are!
