Westchester County, NY Club Meeting

Greetings Hudson Valley History Detectives members!
This month’s meeting will be on Wednesday, August 15th, at 7:00pm in White Plains. Our fourth monthly meeting will be at a new location, since we had complaints from some members last month that the Porterhouse was too noisy. This month, we will meet at my home. I live in the Tanglewood Gardens complex, 260 Church Street, White Plains, New York 10603 – Feel free to call me 914-589-3985 for directions!
There is PLENTY of FREE parking on Church Street, and in Visitor spots in parking lots on both sides of the complex. Depending on the weather, we will be able to demonstrate a few different metal detectors on the lawn and do some depth tests in my test garden – So Bring Your Machine!
GUEST SPEAKER: Barry Small, the American distributor for the new Blisstool metal detector, will demonstrate the machine at this month’s meeting. BRING YOUR MACHINE to test it on our depth pit and test garden!
This month’s discussion topic will be, “Target pinpointing and recovery techniques.” Have your questions and tips ready!
We will raffle off the Lesche digger donated to the club by NED at this meeting, then add those proceeds to the club’s “Perpetual 50/50” funds (there is already $30.00 in the pot from last month). Make sure you attend to get in on BOTH drawings!
Lesche Raffle - $5.00 per ticket (Limit two-tickets per member)
HVHD Perpetual 50/50 - $5.00 per entry (One entry per attending member)
At this month’s meeting will also look hard at our current club structure - whether we continue to exist as a loose knit group of friends that network as a group, or become a more structured club that collects dues and votes in officers.
It is time for a club hunt, and we will decide on a location and date at this meeting. As always, I encourage you all to start communicating with me and each other. I have had the opportunity to hunt with a few members now, and it is a blast!
Bring a lawn chair and your machine and we will set up out by my garage with an ice-chest, some chips and dip. I’ll supply the coffee, tea, ice, water, chips, pretzels & dip, you bring whatever you’re drinking, eating or want to share.
You’ll have a chance to test your machine and compare it to others in a controlled and friendly environment using a variety of targets. Feel free to bring your cameras! Call or email me for info!
