It has been a good year for the Highland Lakes Metal Detecting Club with new members and a lot of good finds being shared with our members at the monthly meetings and outings.  Thanks everyone for these.

Starting with the January meeting on the 6th at 10:00am in the main meeting room at the Kingsland library.  We have Tom Ashworth going over the BASICS of a modern metal detector.  Yes, that is right, basics.  I talked Tom into slowing down and help anyone starting out learn what every setting on their detector is and what function it does and how to set it up.  Tom has over 50 years of metal detecting and is very serious and knowledgeable about all aspects of the hobby and will really be great at helping all of us learn more.  Please bring your metal detector to the meeting and be able to do adjustments and learn more about your detector plus be able to ask any questions you might have.  Invite a friend also.

We will have more of these gaining a little more info as the year goes on.  This is what the group ask for in the December meeting and we are getting this information together along with more outings that persons can learn the same.

If you have any places we might have outings to please let one of the directors know so we can start setting the outing up.  If you need help in learning how to find places let us know.

My, Earl Theiss, email is etheiss@verizon.net if you need to contact me.  If you need equipment and supplies I also sell several lines of metal detectors and supplies along with prospecting and mining equipment.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  See you at the meeting.

Earl
