    Re: HOW HARD IS IT TO START A CLUB ?

    If you are going to have an actual club it is best to have a president if for no other reason than to keep meetings on track so that everything gets covered. Seems if you do not then everyone gets to yakking amongst themselves and nothing gets done or one or two folks will dominate the meetings and can talk circles all night. lol You can always start with just a couple of folks and go do stuff you want to do together then as others are interested in joining you then just add them in to the mix. I actually prefer small clubs but that is just me. It is fun to have big groups sometimes too. Maybe the best thing is to find someone that is an officer in a club and put your heads together with them as to what works for their club and maybe even how it got started. They would be a wealth of information and believe me...in a group as big as here at tnet you are bound to find many that are knowledgable on the subject. Best of luck to you!

    Re: HOW HARD IS IT TO START A CLUB ?

    WHEN I DONE THIS BEFORE I WAS JUST GETTING IN METAL DETECTING, THIS HAS BEEN FIVE YEARS AGO NOW. I SEE MORE PEOPLE FROM MY STATE ON HERE
    NOW THAN BEFORE, SOME CONTACT ME TO GET TOGATHER, BUT FINDING TIME
    RIGHT NOW IS AN ISSUE, WORK RELATED. THE REASON I SAID THAT ABOUT THE " PRESIDENT " IS IT SEEMS THAT WOULD BE THE OVERLORD POSTITION..
    I LIKE THE SMALL CLUB FORMAT.

    THANKS: M L HUDSON

    mlhudson,

    agree that the, "SMALL CLUB FORMAT."

    I'm the president of my club; first rule I passed
    was: "no other members needed."

    have a good un.......

    Re: HOW HARD IS IT TO START A CLUB ?

    Having been past-president of a brick-&-mortor club, my answer to "how hard is it?" is a factor of how plentiful are the finds/goodies in your area? If the pickens are easy, then you'll have no problem with attracting folks to join a club. If the pickens are hard-worked (ie.: only aces do good any more these days) then it will be hard to make a club. You gotta figure, not everyone is a "club" type. So for every person doing good, only every other would actually commit to join a club. So the better the pickens are, the better your odds of getting a club going. And by "pickens", I don't mean sandbox stuff, but actual old coins, etc....
    Metal detecting is my one worldy vice!

    Re: HOW HARD IS IT TO START A CLUB ?

    I'm the VP of our local club. We have most of our club forms / documents as Word or Excel files. If you need something to work from, I could send you the files. You can edit them to your needs. May save you some work.

    Yes, it's best to have officers to keep things running smoothly and to take on the work of keeping the club running but we allways have trouble filling some of the positions each year.
