had a great meeting last night. The food, the company, couldn't ask for
better. We touched on a few things; Rudy will be burying 2 more tokens
this year but the 2 prizes will be supplied by the club.
Remember, to get the hints,
you MUST attend the meeting. The hints will not be emailed or posted on
I received an email late
last week from the Park's Operations Area East Supervisor, this is the
gentleman that I talked with to get permission to hunt Derby Reach.
It appears that someone, we have no idea whom has been hunting at Derby
Reach – WITHOUT PERMISSION
This is the email he received:
"I was at the DR Heritage Area today. There was a chap using a metal
detector on the lawn at the parking lot. He had a trowel digging out his
findings. He pulled out a 1909 coin. When I chatted with him he showed
me the square head spikes he had also found.
I told him that he actually shouldn't be doing any of this at the park
and this site particularly.
I ended on a friendly wish for the season and said he should become
better informed as this was not something we would leave alone usually."
Please keep an eye out for this activity. I will also refresh my
understanding. It is sad to see a coin forged in 1909, the year the
Houston House was built, fall into a private collector's hands."
I have no idea who was digging in
Derby Reach. If you know could you please approach him and ask him
to return the items he found?
If this is the case please email me and we can get them back to where
they belong. There are rules and procedures we have to follow to hunt in
this area. Our job is to educate and train people about metal detecting
and to help out where possible.
Hopefully we won't see this again. I will be posting photos from last
night, the contest and this email on our Facebook page and website. We
are entering our 3rd year. We have had 2 great years so far, we have
accomplished much. Let's see what we can do this year. Thank you to each
and every one of you.
