Yankee Territory Coinshooters

Hello and welcome friend and fellow detectorist. Yankee Territory Coinshooters is a club formed to enjoy, preserve and protect the hobby of metal detecting. Since January of 1976 our members have been enjoying monthly meetings and other various Club sponsored activities.

Along with the meetings, members also enjoy a monthly newsletter filled with stories, facts and articles of interest as well as access to a private Facebook group to stay in touch with each other in-between meetings.

Breaking News

Hi all – your Executive Board has unanimously decided:

  1. to cancel the April 8 meeting; the Pitkin Center is closed for at least the month of April. The club will be reimbursed in some fashion for the room rental for that evening.

    2. The 3/28 farm field hunt is postponed indefinitely; besides the guidance/orders from the CDC and the Governor, holding an event with this many people is inadvisable, and might certainly attract unwanted attention. But mainly, there are a number of members who are older and/or are compromised health-wise, making them more vulnerable to the virus.

Those with e-mail should be getting an April Probe from our new Editor! Dave Gooch has stepped forward to take on this important task. Let’s support him in this, his first issue, and those to come. Articles/information of interest can be sent to: ytcprobenews1@gmail.com Please inform any member you know, of all the above, who don’t have e-mail.

Also, please follow recommended safety precautions re. the virus. Assume that you and everyone else is a carrier. We want to see all your smiling faces when we indeed do get together again! Stay safe.

Dave G.

YTC Christmas Party!

By Metal DetectingNo Comments

It’s Here! It’s Here! The Yankee Territory Coinshooters Christmas party at the December Meeting. Which is, by the way, December 11th 2019 at the normal meeting place @ the Pitkin Community Center in Wethersfield.

This meeting is for members only. We will NOT be taking renewal payments at the December meeting. If you renew before the deadline (The Christmas Party Meeting) you are eligible to be in the raffle for early renewals which will be drawn at the Christmas party. The only way left to pay for early renewal is on this web site through papal or credit card. Hit the link that says “Pay Your Dues” and get those renewals in by the Christmas party to win!

There will be Fun, Pot Luck Food, Refreshments, Raffles, and a good old fashioned Yankee Swap. This is the best meeting of the year!

To Participate please bring a dish or desert of your choice. Whatever you want. We would like a nice variety of food. I’m bringing Chili! To be part of the Yankee Swap please bring a gift of a minimum of $10 wrapped to the meeting and you’re in the Yankee swap. A couple of caveats though. No batteries or gloves. It should be detecting related OR coin related. Some folks bring in an ounce of silver which is also fine. 

We hope to see you all there!

Meeting Reminder

By Metal DetectingNo Comments

A reminder – the August meeting is NEXT Wednesday, August 7.

Mike Russo is retiring, and will make one last presentation at this meeting. Bring your jewelry.

The raffle ticket sale will continue, for 4 ‘tips and techniques’ books, each for a specific detector. These are highly regarded (value $20), written by Andy Sabisch. (Guaranteed you’ll learn something you didn’t know.) Chances are $1 each, and there is one ‘pot’ for each book.

We will vote on an amendment to YTC by-laws. At issue – change the term limit for club President to 3 consecutive years (from 2 years). We need a quorum of 1/3 of our membership – 42 members.

The Rocky Neck hunt is the following Sunday, August 11. See Probe for details.

Christmas Meeting Incoming!

By MeetingsNo Comments

So exciting! The Annual Christmas Meeting is coming!!!

December 12th @ 6PM ( note the earlier time) @ the William J. Pitkin Community Center in the Ballroom. Come and be merry with your fellow detectorists!

Bring a gift from $10-$20 and be part of the Yankee Swap and a few good laughs!

There will be food and good cheer! If you’d like to help, bring a hot or cold dish (please cook the food before you get here as we have no way of heating up or cooking the food) or a dessert (my personal favorite). Otherwise come and eat!

We will be raffling off the Gold Coin during the party after everyone eats. You’ll be able to buy raffle tickets for the gold coin at this meeting but it won’t last long (I want to enjoy the party too!). Good luck to everyone that bought a ticket.

There will be NO dues renewals at this meeting. If you want to be part of the renewal drawing you’ll need to have paid your dues before the end of year to qualify. If you still need to renew the only way left to renew is to pay your dues online BEFORE the Christmas party!  Click Pay Your Dues at the top right of this web site and if you do before the Christmas party you’ll be eligible for the coin(s) drawing!

We can’t wait to see you!

Michael
