Monthly Meetings

ODA meetings are on the first Wednesday of each month.  As the weather improves we will be holding some of our meetings at a location that will allow us to detect as a group. Please contact us before attending.

Members are encouraged to bring their best finds since the previous meeting. All members are eligible to enter their best find in four categories, Best Coin, Best Token, Best Jewelry and Best Other. Silver coins will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each category. In addition to winning coins each member receives points towards ODA Detectorists of the Year.

- Finds of the month
