Last Sunday, tekkies Dave Wise and Terry Charest hosted a somewhat impromptu, but very successful hunt near West Kingstown, Rhode Island. What started out as just an idea for a get-together on the New England Cellar Dweller Facebook page, wound up attracting over 130 detectorists. They labeled it “Digging in NewEngland” (or D.I.N.E. if you will).

It was a natural hunt on a 100 acre farm, and thanks to White’s, Teknetics and many others, prizes were raffled off, with the proceeds going to local charities like The Eagles Nest, Crossroads Recovery & the Terryville AnimalRescue Foundation.
Great job Dave and Terry and thanks for representing our pastime in fine fashion. You guys are appreciated…..
And oh yeah, Dave and Terry are planning to do another Digging in New England next year, so stay tuned. Who knows maybe this old tekkie will show up, if for no other reason than to get Dave to turn his damn ball cap around!
