WWATS Rendezvous 2014

WWATS RENDEZVOUS 2014 CONGRESS AZ FLYER

WWATS RENDEZVOUS 2014 ANTLER OK FLYER

**News Flash**

It has been too many years with the same webpage. That is about to change. We have asked our webmaster not to rebuild the old but to build us a new site with all of the latest bells and whistles available. Our biggest problem has been getting all of our old content saved and imported to the new. It is our goal to have your new WWATS website up and running by June 15th.



Welcome to the World Wide Association of Treasure Seekers!


Our Mission Statement:  Preserve, Promote and Protect the right to the use of the Land and Natural Resources for “We the People” now and in the future.

Welcome to World Wide Association of Treasurer Seekers Web site, Better known as WWATS. As the President I would like to Welcome You. WWATS is World Wide and we welcome everyone to join in.
 
The Focus of WWATS is to be an information center, providing special training as necessary to understand our relationships with, and to openly approach, our government agencies, seeking ways our hobby can co-exist within the rules and regulations used to govern public lands today. WWATS shall be a proactive organization, not a reactive one.We are working with many other organizations to keep our treasure seeking rights open to all.

We are in the process of building a new web site more user friendly and a Charter Member site that paid members will have total access to. This Charter Member site will have discounts, special events, treasure sites, WWATS Geocaching with a twist, and more to come for paid members.

So join WWATS today at http://www.ebay.com/itm/Three-Year-Membership-in-the-World-Wide-Association-of-Treasure-Seekers-WWATS-/251272159878

Folks, WWATS up to this point has been more of an Internet Organization to assist other groups with helpful ideas and suggestions to fight problems that arise in our hobbies. Now WWATS has decided to go another positive step further by becoming even more proactive in our fights to save the hobbies we so enjoy from disaster and termination. We still have some re-organizing to do yet, both on our websites and out in the field, but soon you will see WWATS most everywhere you go, even in other countries.

WWATS has decided we need two websites now in order to handle the great influx of information we will be releasing so to keep everyone informed and updated to any news as it happens.

Other groups are aligning with WWATS as we speak here, rock hounds, prospectors, hikers, detectorist and more. This kind of alignment is what is needed to create a force strong enough to be heard and to make a difference. WWATS opens it's doors to any organization, chapter or group that wishes to join, cost is just one dollar a month for a three year membership per person of $36.00. Many privileges go with that membership including discounts on equipment purchases with WWATS affiliated dealers and WWATS Outings, not to mention special areas of our websites for those paying members.

Then to even be more proactive, WWATS will be aligning themselves with other establish organizations that have a legal staff and experience to get our concerns understood and accomplished.
 
Please go to our other website
www.wwats.us and see our recent videos at WWATS Rendezvous in Congress, AZ. where we tried the prospective of a beginner and his take of being introduced to our hobbies for the first time, see the many activities that went on at this outing, and most of all the inspiring words of the vice president of PLP (Public Lands for the People) that has a very experience attorney to help us all save our rights to access public lands and keep that access to enjoy or hobbies in the future. PLP and WWATS are fighting for the same goals, think about becoming a member of both, have your words heard and keep our public lands open for our children!
 
Ask yourself this: "Is It Worth A Dollar A Month To Keep Enjoying Your Hobby!"
 
WWATS will be at the Texas Treasure Show ( LARGEST Treasure Show in America) April 13th and 14th, 2013 at Maude Cobb Convention Center, Longview, Texas. Come join WWATS at our booth and become a part of the future of you hobby! We will also have PLP applications available there.

Thank you much, Keith Wills

Legislation Alerts Public Lands and Waters
Author: Webmaster
Public Lands and Waters My sons and I have helped introduce a new bill in the Alabama Senate, SB-81, that will make the current law easier to understand. The public currently has the right to find isolated underwater finds, but some professional archaeologists and their cronies at the Alabama Historical Commission have misled some law enforcement officers into believing that it is illegal to find and keep isolated finds such as an arrowhead, a coke bottle, or a coin. This is not true, but people have been harassed, detained, and their property confiscated on the Tennessee and Alabama Rivers, and in Mobile Bay. Our bill does three things: Deletes (whether or not) from the definition of Cultural Resources   Adds a definition for an artifact where no definition currently exists    Adds the already existing state and federal law numbers to the bill, so that it protects Indian burial grounds and any other cemeteries that are underwater   All historic shipwrecks are currently controlled by the AHC, and we are not trying to change that at all. SB-81 does not increase or decrease any current or future cultural resources that are to be permitted by the Alabama Historical Commission. We just don’t want our law enforcement officers to be used by professional archaeologists to stop divers from legal diving.    Please read SB-81An article was in ...[read more]
