A club member the other day gave me a whole box full of old Western & Eastern Treasure Magazines ----instead of tossing them after reading them, the ‘light bulb’ in my head went off - -

I am finding over time that the number of individuals who come to our meetings drops off and I thought of this nifty idea late last night while reading some of the old issues.

Here’s a great free way to get support for our hobby as well as possibly gaining new membership into your local detecting club.

We all go to various medical and dental clinics and wait prior to our appointment in their ‘waiting areas’. Here you will find various ‘outdated magazines’ on their tables. Why not bring a copy of your old favourite treasure magazine and leave it with the rest of the magazines on the stack. This concept can actually be used for any ‘hobby organization’.

Prior to going to your medical appointment, spend a little time on your word processor and create a 2 ” by 2 ” note about your Metal Detecting Club, when they meet, contact information etc, and then staple it to the bottom right hand corner of the front cover. Speak to the receptionist or your family doctor and ask them if it’s ‘ok’ that you could leave this ‘complimentary copy’ for their patients to read in the waiting area.

This sure beats reading that ‘old TIME 1967 issue’ or ‘1953 Popular Mechanics’ magazine that has been sitting there collecting dust for all eternity!!
