Treasure  Hunters'  Code  of  Ethics

     Our club strives to improve the public image of detector
     users and other amateur historians/collectors.  We therefore
     abide by the following "Treasure Hunters' Code of Ethics":

     1. Respect the rights and property of others.

     2. Observe all laws, whether national, state or local.  Aid
        law-enforcement officers whenever possible.

     3. Never destroy priceless historical or archaeological

     4. Leave land and vegetation as it was.  Fill all holes.

     5. Remove trash and litter when you leave.

     6. All treasure hunters may be judged by the example you set.
        Always conduct yourself with courtesy and consideration
        for others.

     7. Strive to encourage young people to take an interest in
        history and our national heritage through club functions
        and activities.
