August 16th Meeting

We started the meeting with a few tales of our Metal Detecting adventures, and how we started our hobby.

  • Scott told us one of the “leaf bag” stories we all eventually have, ending with absolutely no thanks for the effort.
  • Sandi recounted buying her first detector to try to find a lost gold bracelet she managed to lose in her own backyard. (still missing)
  • Paulo recounted his 6th grade camping trip when he observed a hunter pulling out a Mercury dime and deciding many years later to finally start the hobby after joining the club.
  • Glen started hunting the minute he retired after promising himself he would try the hobby.  He’s been out every day since using the latest tools to help him !
  • Don was a collector of many things including post cards.  His collecting buddy gave him a “coinmaster” that started his new hobby.
  • Mark flew to far locations with total strangers to hunt with detectors and dowsing rods with the permission of his wife.
