I enjoy metal detecting. I’m not very successful at it – especially when compared to the retirees at Deep Search that bring in tons of old coins and artifacts to the meetings every month – but I enjoy it when I can. Last year I helped out with my first open hunt, where hunters pay a nominal fees to hunt a seeded field (in our case the beach at Seven Presidents Park in Long Branch, NJ) for coins, jewelry, and special tokens which are exchanged for special prizes (expensive new metal detectors, gold and silver coins, and more).
On September 17, DSMDC will be holding their 25th Annual Club Hunt at Seven Presidents Park. Rain or shine, it promises to be our biggest event yet.
