    Task Force for Metal Detecting Rights Foundation Call to Action- April 6th-8th, 2015*


    Call to Action April 6th-8th, 2015


    Fellow Metal Detectorists,
    Call To Action….Starting Monday April 6, for 3 days.

    The Task Force has been trying to negotiate a FAIR resolution to correct the deteriorating rights of Metal Detectorist's to enjoy their hobby in NYC parks.

    After months of meetings, phone calls, and follow ups, The Task Force has not received any constructive response from NYC Parks. We need to let them know we will stand together until we are treated fairly.

    Contact NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver, by phone, mail or email (contact information and example letter are below).

    Be polite, but firm…make your dissatisfaction known.
    Pass the message along to anyone willing to call in and help support the
    rights of Metal Detectorist's to enjoy their hobby without being discriminated against.

    Address:
    Commissioner Mitchell J. Silver
    The Arsenal
    830 Fifth Avenue
    New York, NY 10065

    Email:mitchell.silver@parks.nyc.gov

    Phone: 212-360-1305
    Feel free to copy and paste the example below to the NYC Parks Commissioner, or use your own message.

    Commissioner Silver:

    The Task Force for Metal Detecting Rights Foundation,
    (Task Force) had a meeting at your office in December of 2014.

    They asked that metal detecting be treated the same as
    any other lawful form of recreation that are enjoyed in NYC Parks.

    They requested that responsible metal detecting be
    permitted and welcomed in all NYC Parks.

    They were told that the Task Force request was being
    seriously considered by the NYC Parks Department,
    and that there was an “ongoing process” to determine a solution.

    When can the Task Force, and all those that they represent
    expect that the “ongoing process” will be completed?

    Hopefully, this “ongoing process” will result in a fair,
    reasonable and equitable outcome for all those who
    enjoy the recreational hobby of metal detecting.

    posted Apr 06, 2015, if there was, I'm sure they are long gone.
    you would probably need to contact the task force to ask what ever happened

    The task force was able to keep most of the NYC parks open to detecting after some hard and time consuming negotiations and demonstrations. In this case, banding together and getting our message out to the public worked well.
