Received the following comment/reply to my last post (Hellooo Out There) from Avery Marder, Vice President of the Task Force for Metal Detecting Rights and wanted to share it here as well.
Not so secret..just go to DetectingRights.com – we’re an open book. In the next 2 weeks the site will be updated with current info and features. The Task Force (it’s not a company) is a 501(c) non profit, all volunteer Foundation (no one draws a salary nor stipend). Membership in the Task Force is completely FREE, we will never ask our members to pay a membership fee.
The Task Force just hired a law firm in NY to spearhead answering legal issues confronting the Metal Detecting Community. The Task Force is also interviewing law firms in northern Illinois, and will be looking for a law firm in Kentucky shortly…..the three top hot spots the Task Force will be working on in the next few months. Other areas will be considered as soon as we are notified, contacted by a local club, hear about problems through web/blog sites, or from contact with members of The Task Force.
The Task Force is here to protect you, the Metal Detecting Community, and we need you to help fellow Metal Detectorists in your own back yard and across
the country, thank you, and join today.
Thank you Avery. Happy to hear the Task Force is finally back and I like the prospects of getting legal help and advice. Hope you will keep everyone updated on your efforts…
HOLCOMBE GOES HOLLYWOOD
Was surprised to see a video on Facebook today from Butch Holcombe, publisher of the American Digger Magazine. Why? Because he finally succumbed to the fancy of putting a camera on his head. I thought he had better sense, but one never knows anymore. Apprently he likes it, and I am looking forward to “Butch Does Hollywood, Part 2”.
I have shared his video with all my archaeological friends out there and feel certain they will enjoy it. Even supplied Butch’s home address in case they wanted his autograph.
TO MY TH’ING FRIENDS BACK IN JERSEY…
Threw out this tip a couple of months ago, but now you must act if you are at all interested. My old High School has been torn down, and it appears as though there might be construction on the site in the near future. If you are at all interested in finding good stuff you might want to stay on top of this.
A REMINDER TO USE YOUR HEAD
Once again a reminder of how very much we can become a pain in the ass to the general public. If you are out of your elements, don’t push it please. Losing your life is not worth any treasure out there….
AND ON THE HOME FRONT…
Not a lot to report, and not a lot of finds to report. Still trying to feel “normal” and still taking a lot of pills. Have felt somewhat better of late, but when I can finally go out with my grandson and shoot some baskets, I will know that all is back to normal. Working on it for sure….
