Welcome to ECRDA.org!

The East Coast Research and Discovery Association (ECRDA) is the Northeast's largest treasure-hunting club. Since 1983, the ECRDA has promoted the hobby of treasure hunting among adults and children. Many members and hobbyists use a metal detector, but it can be as easy as checking the coins in your pocket -- or eyeballing a 'find' just lying on the ground.

Whether you're a novice or a long time coin-shooter or relic hunter, the ECRDA is the place to be. Our monthly meetings bring existing and new members together to show off their latest finds, swap tips, hear educational speakers, enjoy our shared hobby, make new friends, buy & sell gear, and much more.

Our next regular club meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 16, 2016.. As we always do, we'll have Finds of the Month, refreshments, and more!

Dues: Members, it's time to renew your memberships. Annual dues are payable no later than our March meeting. As an incentive to get your club dues in early, everyone who pays up by the January meeting date will receive 3 chances for a special drawing to be held at the April meeting. Pay by the February meeting, get 2 chances. If you wait until the March meeting date, you'll get only 1 chance. Here's the Membership Brochure.
