Executive Committee:

We are currently in need of one more full time Executive Committee Member and one alternate
Executive Committee Member. If you are interested please submit a request to the President prior to
the February 17th meeting. A vote will be asked for by the members at the next meeting should we have
more than one interested member.
An executive committee is a smaller group with close ties through leadership who can get
together, often with little notice, to address pressing issues that affect the organization
substantially, such as an emerging crisis.

Metal Detecting Checklist

A list of things to consider before heading out for a hunt.

  MandatoryOptionalNotes:
1.Metal DetectorYGood luck if you forget your detector
