A Northwest Florida Metal Detecting Group


A group of folks dedicated to metal detecting, instruction, and friendship.  Our club strives to help the community when called upon, observe the metal detecting Code of Ethics and pass on the fun of the metal detecting hobby.

Please join us at our monthly meetings.  Meetings are held at 7 PM on the second Saturday of the month at Gulf Beach Baptist Church.  The church is located at 10620 Hutchison Blvd.
