Hi, I have never been a member of a club, I would be interested, but do not know what type of things does a club do ?, I would be interested in club organised digs etc, but not just meeting up down the pub chatting about detecting, as I would rather do that on line ?

I did e-mail a club once that only chatted down the pub, didn't actually have any land to detect on

Hi, I would be keen to join up. Im in Bexleyheath, Kent, which isnt too far for me to travel - about 25 miles and a straight route. I havent got a great deal to offer as im a novice but im keen to get inolved in the hobby and i dont get bored when i use my detector. Its sad to say, but the excitement of digging and finding something has always been with me since i first had a Tandy metal detector as a kid and now that ive got a better one i cant wait to use it properly and to meet others who are as keen as me and learn from them etc. :)

..........and i dont mind the occasional pint if need be. :D ..

I for one would love to be a member im about 7 or 8 miles away from strood/rochester but would happily cycle if meetings only once a month or so as I dont know how clubs work as tried to join many local...ish ones but they all have long waiting lists already.
I am about halfway between medway and bexleyheath and right on top of ebbsfleet international station but my only transport now is my trusty mountain bike so pretty limited to where I can travel :(

Hi Deanothehunter, If the club gets off the ground (no pun intended) I would gladly pick you up on the way to the Medway area. I wouldnt be expecting a lift on the back of your bike in return [:)

Hi to all what im looking at is a monthly meeting, a finds competition , sorting days out detecting this would be on a sunday this would mean a small fee for the farmer.
will also try and sort out club land. you will be able to join F.I.D or N.C.M.D
If i can get this up and running will be sorting out rallies in kent for charities.
