•   2019 Events Calendar.

We would like to plan some sort of outing for at least every other month for 2019.  The annual Christmas party is considered an outing.  All dig trips will be 3 day outings.  If an outing to Colorado is planned, it will be an individual outing versus a club outing. Options are being looked at for places under 7,000 feet in altitude.  All meetings next year will be held at the same location and time on the second Saturday of each month.  We would like to see more participation in meetings and outings next year.

Here is a tentative list of items planned:
January – No outing planned
February (2/16/2019) - Metal Detecting at Sun Sprit Park in Daytona.
March (3/30/2019) - Fossil hunting at Peace River
