Ran into a member of the local Metal Detecting Club. Gulf Coast Treasure and Recovery Club. They meet at the County Library in Brazoria, Texas on the third Thursday of every month, at 7pm.

Red Tide came through the other day. If you plan to MD the beaches here plan on a lot of dead fish. From Galveston to Matagorda, 100 miles.

Lots of beach! So far I haven't had much luck with in town parks. Just a few coins. Found a wedding band at Quintana County Park at the beach and their isn't a lot of trash. Quintana is also the site of a Confederate fort. I'm trying to find out if I can hunt there. It's over grown and not part of the County Park. There's a WW2 gun implacement there too.

Hi Grumpysrb,

There is a local club in the Galveston area, as well as Houston, Tomball, Pasadena and Montgomery County. If you setup any group hunts, let me know. I can probably drag a few of the locals up north of you down.

Grumpy, do you ever do any hunting toward the Beaumont area or on the Bolivar Peninsula? I am new to the area and would love to find someone to talk detecting with.

I haven't been that far east, but can head that way. I have been thinking of hitting the Brazoria County Park near there at San Luis Pass. A lot of shipping went through their in the old days and I've been told many were pirates and some ships have sunk.

I won't be around until about the 7th. I'll PM you when I return and we can set up a place and time.

When do you like to hunt. I'm in Clute and go almost daily. What machine are you using?

You guys getting it together down that way are making me jealous.

Well, I joined the local club, BARC, but have run into more people outside of the club. Unfortunately everyone works a different schedule. Being retired I can detect with everyone on their days off. Getting everyone together is a little difficult. Suppsed to detect with one Friday and a new guy Wednesday. Have a former coworker and his girlfriend wanting to try out the hobby too. They almost bought a machine at academy, some off brand, but they were out of them at the time. I gave them some infor and will let them try out my Garretts. I hunt with a Whites dealer, who owns a Fisher, so he may get a sale.

The club, Brazoria County Artifact and Recovery Club, will have a booth at the Brazoria Heritage Days Festival. We will be hidding items in the ground(sand pile) for people to find. Raising funds for the club we will charge $2.00.

The festivaal is from 10a to 6pm.

I am too far from all the 'local' clubs. Replying because I go down to Bolivar and Galveston on occasion. I am trying to increase that, but living far west of Houston makes it a trek and something that needs planning.

Just as an FYI, I may be trying to organize a West Houston group pretty soon... in case anyone was interested.
