Our Heritage
Our Heritage

Welcome to SMARTS – Smoky Mountain Artifact Research and Treasure Society. If you are interested in metal detecting as a hobby, treasure hunting, gold prospecting, or have items you wish to sell that are related to the hobby, we invite to join the club and forums. The club dues are $20 yearly for a single membership or $25 for a family. You may join our forums for free by simply creating an account plus you do not have to be a club member. It is a free and open forum and we invite anyone who is interested in the hobby to join. We meet the second Monday of each month  at  the “Golden Corral”. It is located on Clinton Hwy. in front of Lowe’s. The next meeting is Monday December 14th. We try to have a guest speaker, finds of the month contests, raffle prizes and discuss our hobby at every meeting. Our meetings feature a Finds of the Months contest so the tables will be filled with lots of recovered articles. December is a special month for the club as we always have a auction of donated items to earn money for club activities. The club makes every attempt to give away 3 rings to the ladies present at the meeting for allowing their husbands to go hunting during the year. So come on out and visit, it is a great place to meet new friends and learn more about this exciting hobby.  5:30 pm if you want to eat and 6:30 pm for the meeting.
