Most clubs have names reflecting where they are based and ending "Metal Detecting Club" or sometimes "Searchers" or such like. But there are several exceptions to this, often for a logical reason.

Looking at a list of clubs in my region I have just seen one listed, Upton Swingers, and as it is not that far from me that I thought I would look it up.

The results rather shocked me :shock: :shock:

I know that we all swing a detector. But on reflection if anybody is thinking of starting a new metal detecting club its probably not a good idea to name a club "(town name) swingers". Naming it "(town name) Metal Detecting Club" might sound boring but is safer.

Brilliant!
You have to think before you do a search on the internet .
I played football for a local club for around 15 years and a good mate of mine was an assistant to one of the team managers.They needed a new bag to put the match and training balls in and he was given the job of buying one. He did an internet search for a ‘big ball bag’ and wished he hadn’t! You can’t unsee what you’ve seen!
