Just wanted to remind you of a couple of things. First, if possible, hope you will consider donating a dollar or two to the American Legion folks in Waynesboro, Georgia. For more information on this situation please refer to my post of April 27th. The mailing address is also listed there.
Be sure to notate “Old Church Restoration” on the bottom of your check. Many thanks to Mike Smith for following up on this situation, and for providing all the details.
STEP UP & CLEANUP CAMPAIGN
Don’t forget the “Step Up and Cleanup” challenge mentioned in my last post. Remember too that White’s will donate a Coinmaster detector to the first six clubs to participate so get going, help your club and in the process, help your community.
White’s may also consider making this an ongoing program….thanks everyone in Sweet Home!
LOOKING FORWARD TO A FEW BONGS
Don’t get too excited or worked up….the “bongs” I am referring to are those memorable responses I used to hear when using the old White’s 6000di Series 2 detector. I am happy to say I finally found one (hip mount as well), and it’s on it’s way.
I understand it won’t have all the bells and whistles that today’s models offer, and may be lacking some in depth, but I am looking forward to taking it out in the field, if for nothing else, old times sake. It was a favorite of mine, and it disappeared during a garage sale right after moving to Texas. I will keep you posted on how this old work horse performs (not that you really care). Given the price I had to pay, I know there are others who loved this machine as well ….
If anyone out there happens to have a 4 inch coil for this detector that you’d like to sell or give away to an old and needy man (a friend of mine), let me know.
Good news….Allyson Cohen, the Detecting Diva will now be handling the Task Force Twitter and Facebook pages, so be sure to check in there daily for updates on their activities. She also told me that the Cook County situation is moving along, and that the president of the local club is working with an attorney, drafting a letter to send to the local park commission, and when that is submitted the information will be posted on the Task Force website. Thanks Allyson for the update.
