Club History

Who we are

We are dedicated to the hobby of metal detecting and to the promotion of responsible participation in detecting.

History

Eureka! Treasure Hunter’s Club was begun over 30 years ago in 1973 by a metal detecting shop owner to bring together people in the Denver area who were interested in the hobby. The club has evolved over the years into more of a social organization that encourages ethical detecting practices, historical research and community involvement.

Members look forward to monthly meetings as a lively atmosphere in which to share information, display recent finds and gain new techniques or knowledge. Diverse and interesting, monthly hunts take place as a competition for members, and often guests, to “show their stuff” in a spirit of camaraderie and fellowship.

While the primary goal of the club is to encourage the enjoyment of the hobby among its members, Eureka! also has provided support to the community through a Physical Evidence Recovery Team, Historical Artifact Recovery Team and charitable contributions to several non-profit organizations.

Logo Items

Items bearing the Eureka! name, such as embroidered patches and caps, are periodically available. The current patch is the third design offered. These items may be obtained from the club treasurer, as available.

Each member receives a name badge (circular "button" type) as part of their original membership application fee. These buttons identify their recipients as a member of the club. These badges also are used as entry into various drawings, such as the Membership Attendance Drawing at the monthly meeting. Lost name badge buttons have a replacement cost of $5.
