Great meeting this week, thanks for coming out guys!
Two members found civil war tokens this month.
Two guys found Standing Liberty Quarters too.
Hope to see at least a dozen guys at the next meeting October 4th.

After speaking with three other forum members, i think there is enough interest to start a club here.

I am sure there are at least 50 forum members within a 30 minute drive.

Please post if you would be interested in getting together one night a month for a bite to eat and some good discussions about detecting.
I know the owner of a Diner in Milwaukee who said we could use their meeting room as well.

Let me know if this is worth my while and I will be happy to head it up!
I'm more than 30 minutes away but once a month I can do. I would be interested in joining

We may have a special meeting just for you next week, depending on the outcome of our little wager

Sounds like a blanket party for me and Randy is going to get in a few low blows.

Good decision, that play might have been the equivalent of a deadmans hand

Kind of what I thought. I was kinda jittery all day wondering what the fallout might be and then figured it wasn't worth it

Mat does a pretty good job of always keeping himself entertained........

In the 2nd and 3rd pic, no one is paying any attention to Mat but he's still
having a great time over there at the end of the table
