Please, read John Howland’s latest update in the Malamute Saloon. It’s important and just another indication of the battle we are engaged in and one we better not ignore. The pastime is being attacked from many quarters and now they are looking at the ocean floor…. they want it ALL!
For John’s update click on the Malamute Saloon link above and scroll down to today’s date.
I suspect those of you who always take the time to read John’s comments will do so again and simply move on and do your own thing. That seems to be the norm anymore, but it’s eventually going to come back and bite you in the ass! Maybe not today, maybe not this year, but very soon if we continue our melancholy ways. Then again will we ever have a cohesive, united group powerful enough to stand up to this propaganda and overreach? I honestly doubt it.
If you think that I am overstating things, take a look at this proposal being floated in the UK. The implication that the majority of detectorists are unethical is clear (and I too want to throw up). Read it and take heed. It’s just one more piece in the subtle but unrelenting effort to shut us down.
If it feels like I am beating you over the head with the following…..GOOD! That’s my goal. Take a minute or two, spend a few dollars, maybe win a new detector and and help a family n need. You won’t miss it, and they will appreciate it.
PLEASE JOIN OUR EFFORT AND HELP OUT A FRIEND IN NEED
