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 held the second Tuesday of each month in the basement of the East Hartford Public Library.

Along with the meetings, members also enjoy a monthly newsletter filled with stories, facts and articles of interest. Membership in our club can help the experienced as well as the novice detectorist obtain current information from new law updates to just good detecting places and tips. Be a part of this swiftly growing club. Join and become a Yankee Territory Coinshooter.
What is Y.T.C.?
Y.T.C. Is a metal detecting club formed by a few avid detectorists who wanted to share their experiences and fellowship together. Today, Y.T.C. is a large group of treasure hunters (over 100 members) who also want to share the excitement of the best hobby available to people who enjoy the outdoors. Each month Y.T.C. holds a membership meeting at the William J. Pitkin community center 30 Greenfield Street, Wethersfield, Connecticut on the second or third Wednesday of the month. Please see meeting page for specific dates. Each meeting is full of fun and surprises as well as informative talks and discussions. Members can bring any problems they may have encountered while out detecting to the meetings. Becoming a member, can benefit you in many ways; if not by meeting experienced coinshooters then by getting the chance to come along on the many hunts, outings and field trips that Y.T.C. offers. Y.T.C. meetings are also rewarding! Each month the club holds a membership drawing in which one member in attendance will win a small prize. The club also holds a 50/50 raffle where the winner goes home with half the night's collection with the other half helping the club. At most Y.T.C. meetings such things as silver dollars or mint coin sets are raffled off, along with other surprises. So come to one of our meetings. Guests are always welcome. You just may meet some interesting people, hear some talk about coinshooting, spend an enjoyable evening out, and become a Yankee Territory Coinshooter. You'll be glad you did!
