The yoopercoinshooters metal detecting club was started on March 13th 2010.
The main objective of the club is to promote the hobby to any youths or adults that inquire or seem interested in the hobby and help members learn their detectors and how to extract coins in a manner that will leave the grounds in the same condition as it was previously.
Members will retain any junk items and deposit such items in the proper waste containers.
We will always get permission from the property owner or city or state municipality before detecting any areas.
