Besides our member registrations and other Massachusetts hunters, we are getting several out-of-state registrations for the October 7th Hunt.

So far, we have the following states represented:
~ Rhode Island
~ New Hampshire
~ New York (2)
~ Utah (2) their third year attending

We usually have a few from Connecticut, but have not seen any YET.
 
Never been to the Topsfield fair. Maybe I should see if I can find time this weekend.

I’m in a state of confusion, not sure if that counts. I will be there if I don’t forget.

Finally, we got a couple of Connecticut entries this week. The hunt is one week away.

Wow, I'm going to miss you ... now they will be staring at me :digginahole: Well you have a nice weekend and hopefully we won't get to wet. See you next year if not sooner.

Thanks Jeff. Rain gear is called for at the hunt tomorrow. Will also be covering my XLT's speaker holes with clear packing tape, as I don't have a rain hood for the control box. Hope to post a few photos of the hunt soon.

Well it was "touch and go" for today's hunt, and a weather-based decision was made to combine the morning hunt and afternoon hunt into one BIG morning hunt, by seeding the beach with all the silver, clad, and prize tokens, as well as all 15 of the tokens allowing their finders to advance to the "Two Gold Coin" hunt after lunch.

The rain held off until just before the start of the Gold Coin hunt and even then wasn't that bad.

We had close to sixty hunters on the beach. Besides me, I'm aware of only two other FMDF members who were at today's hunt; VMC1161 and Crossmod and his better half. Nice chatting with you both !

Yours truly, won the door prize drawing, a nice, framed display made by one of our generous members, Bill S. It was a club patch, surrounded by four Eisenhower dollar coins, two 1-ounce .999 Silver private mint coins and two half-ounce .999 Silver private mint coins.

I hope to get some photos to post here soon from out members, who acted as unofficial hunt photographer.
