Default Holy cow, the gates open

Got out for a little while today. First stop was the old sledding hill where I found the ring (second silver this year). Went to the local high school. This has a large sports complex that is always fenced and gated. Today the gate was open . There were some grounds keepers working in the area so I stopped to talk with them. We chatted about lawn care etc. Then I mentioned I would like to detect the area, they said fine and good luck. I don't think The area under the grand stand had ever been detected. Only had time for one trip up and back. Over $11 in clad (skipping pennies as I was short on time). As I was leaving the grounds keepers said anytime they are there I am welcome to detect. Sometimes it pays to be friendly .

That looks like a gold mine for clad and earrings. How many pennies did you skip?

Around my area I have yet to find dirt under high school grandstands, always concrete, that looks like a great spot and I hope you're able to get back in there and clean it out, Big Congrats on the sterling and nice clad haul!

Nice RING!!! Wonderful! I'm sure there's more!

Check the field, too... if it's that good under the stadium, you might be sitting on a gold mine along the edges.
