Default 5th Annual Metal Detecting Day - Galesburg, Illinois

hey guys, just wanna share this awesome event in May where we can go out and hunt and meet some well-known guys from the Hobby...

i'm not the organizer here just another guy who would like to go and meet fellow Detectorist. it has been circulated in FB to most Metal Detecting Groups but I haven't seen any info here so here is the link:

Guests like KG and Ringy, Chicago Ron will be there.

for those who would like to stay overnight. there is a Hotel that gives special rate just for this event - Best Westin Inn but you need to call them for room reservation. rates from $79 and $89/night...accepting until April 15 (i think) or until fully booked.

there is a pre Registration going on that is cheaper than paying during the day of the event. there is also Pot Luck and if you can bring your own dish to share much better!

what a great summer get away to start your hunting season.

Just a post bump but I know a bunch of these guys who are in this club and are organizing this. Great bunch of guys. They're expecting 300-400 detectorists for this whopper. Yes, there is a fee but last time I walked away with enough clad and silver from the hunts to make up for it.

Come on down for a heck of a good day. Remember: Stock coils only (and that's a firm rule).

It moves around but I believe this is the last year for the event.
