Hanover Metal Detectors Club, LLC sponsors The Old Dominion Relic Dig. Here, registered participants search the grounds for "seeded" authentic Civil War relics and tokens for special prizes.
This hunt is open to about 80 non-members who participate in a morning and afternoon hunt and a catered lunch.
This is our primary fund raiser and it helps fund the club's private hunts and sponsorships throughout the year.
Club members are not allowed to participate in this event.
2019 was our 11th successful year hosting this popular event.
The club schedules field trips to battlefield parks and museums whenever possible. These are fantastic opportunities to educate ourselves and to tell others about our club and to promote membership.
We encourage all members to bring their families to these events.
Every Christmas holiday season, the club holds an annual party for our members and their significant others.
It's a fun time shared by all. We have drawings for great gifts and it's a wonderful way to help our families better understand our passion and put faces to the names of people we talk about around the dinner table.
