You can count on me again this year, I already have about a gallon ziplock bag full. My daughter is also getting free tabs from the local Facebook flea market page for you. This should be a great year for the contest.

This is truly the ultimate consolation for digging tabs and beaver tails! Makes me feel a bit better about the number of cans of soda I drink too.

A few extra gold rings found last year from members digging those pesky low tones!

Win-win!

Yep. Went out with the main intention of picking up a handful or so of tabs to finish off the bag I was getting ready to send. Didn't quite get as many tabs as I had planned on, just could focus after find a 14k ring, with 11 stones. I use to pass on tab signals, if I was being picky. Now, with the contest, and a 3 gram gold ring, I'm more focused on finding tabs. Still dig plenty of other signals, but won't ignore the tabs.

Posted it in the last thread, but it's worth sharing here. Maybe I should be encouraging everyone to trust their TDI numbers, and leave these pieces of junk in the ground...

Clean as possible but I usually make 2 piles. Some of old crusty junk gets thrown in the recycling bin! Think green!

1st package came today! Silver dime will be in the mail tomorrow. Thanks you Steve. 4 more packages and the bonus silver drawings will start.

Send in them tabs now. Do it the "Chicago Way", send them early and often.

Every package will be a separate entry to each drawing! (...and a silver dime, too!)
