It is the mission of the Task Force for Metal detecting Rights to perpetuate the responsible enjoyment of the pastime of recreational metal detecting within all public parks, open lands and waterways. The Task Force was formed in 1996 in response to the City of New York shutting down all its public parks and beach areas to metal detecting. It was made up of several members from each of the local area clubs.

The importance of our work in this area as detectorists as a whole CANNOT be understated. This is the appropriate level of the battle for our rights as hobbyists. (And NOT on the level of dealing wtih personally negative individual police officers, for example.)


I been looking for quite some time for a group that delves into legal and legislative advocacy.
Put this one on the "to investigate" list. Maybe even worth a sticky...
