    Detectival UK Rally 2019 'Bringing the world of Metal Detecting Together' Detectival was created to bring the world of metal detecting together. After running a large and successful event for XP Metal Detectors in 2016 we decided to continue the trend, while opening the event up to all manufacturers to support and sponsor, along with XP. The 2017 and 2018 events brought together traders and manufacturers from across the UK and various counties, a range of entertainment, various caterers, as well as a large amount of new land to detect. The events were great successes and enjoyed by the attendees and traders alike, and we hope that 2019 will be as enjoyable. Detectival is about having a great detecting experience while also enjoying the social side of this great hobby. We look forward to seeing you there. The event Metal Detecting days will be Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September 2019. Full event tickets are £52.50 per person (£2.50 booking fee). Camping is £15 for 3 nights (Friday, Saturday & Sunday). (All prices stated above are excluding VAT, this will be added on at check out. VAT registration number: 300 3094 65) The chosen location for Detectival 2019 will be near to the Historic Medieval Market towns of Burford & Charlbury in Oxfordshire on the edge of the Beautiful Cotswolds. We have almost 1000 acres to search, 600 of which is brand new undetected land. The site is near to the historic Cotswolds villages of Langley, Fulbrook, Milton Under Wychwood, Ascott under wychwood, Leafield & Shipton Under Wychwood.

  4. I've been out of the picture for the last 4-5 months due to winter conditions here in the OKC area and duties as the Senior Spouse for my wife's Military Command on the Base here. Weather is finally moderating and time to start hunting again. I have two questions for you full-timers. 1. I have never been interested in seeded group hunts/tournaments, but my son who is 11 is now going out with me regularly to TH with his Garrett Ace 300, and there is a big annual seeded hunt coming up about a hundred miles from us in April run by the Three Forks Treasure Hunters Club. This would be a fun trip for my son, and they have a kid's hunt on each day as well as regular adult hunts. I have NEVER done one of these before as it isn't my thing, but for my son, we're going and wondering what you all would suggest for setting my 800 for seeded conditions. (The 300 is easy for him) The hunt will be in the Creek County Fairgrounds. We'll rent an RV for the weekend and give my son Kai an adventure...but I'd like to win some stuff too! 2. I have my new 6" and 15" coils inbound and wondering if I should use the 15, or the stock 11 for this kind of competition hunting? Your assistance is appreciated! Next two weeks will be in the woods Morel Mushroom hunting, but back to the detectors in force following that. Cheers, Frank

  8. Come one come all to the Annual Gathering of Treasure Hunters from throughout the land. There will be fun, food, prizes and merriment for all at the Treasure Coast Archaeological Society (TCAS) 31st Annual Hunt. When: Saturday, March 9, 2019 Where: Kiwanis-Hobart Park, Wabasso, Florida Under the shade of the pines in Hobart Park. Only 5 min from the 1715 Spanish fleet wreck treasure beaches. Competition hunt, silver and reale hunts. Lots of prizes including metal detectors (AT Pro, Ace 350/400), scoops, headphones and a lot more. The cost is $125 for the whole day (all hunts) including lunch. No individual pricing. If you send payment before March 1st, 2019, the cost is only $99. The fun starts at 9am. See our website for maps, forms and more information. COMPETITION HUNT - There will be several thousand painted tokens evenly distributed in the marked-off area, very close to the surface (within 1"). The goal is to locate and recover as many of the marked coins as possible in one hour. Trophies and prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. Please feel free to gather at the border prior to the hunt, but please do not enter the area before the beginning of the hunt. Everyone will begin at the same time and end at the same time. Remaining time will be announced. Please do not share tokens. Once you leave the hunt field, you cannot return. This hunt will require speed, technique, skill and the ability to bend over and have good knees and back. This hunt is for bragging rights as the "Best Competition Hunter". YOUTH HUNT (12 and under) - The smaller buccaneers among us will have an opportunity to strut their stuff. This is a mini version of the Competition Hunt. Yes, you can observe and give verbal help, but the smaller buccaneer is the only one who can operate the magic wand (metal detector) and retrieve the tokens. Remember the primary goal is to have fun. THE SHOOT-OUT (PINPOINT) - This will definitely get you in the mood to pull some hair. The object is to locate and place an X on the specific location of a coin attached to the underside of a piece of plywood. The goal is to pinpoint the exact center of the hidden coin's location with your metal detector. You will have 30 seconds to make your mark. Prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. Then its break for LUNCH! SILVER HUNT and REALE HUNT - Silver coins will be randomly distributed in the field. Recover as many as you can, and keep all that you find!!! The more that sign up, the more coins we will put in the ground! Prize tokens will also be planted and some will be for SPANISH REALES!

  10. Hey guys! White's Electronics will be attending the Rye Patch Nugget Shoot this weekend. We'll be donating a Goldmaster 24k as a prize at the event. Also, thanks to the team putting this on we will have a test garden at the event to demo the Goldmaster 24k. This is where you can get your hands on it, swing it over buried targets, and maybe even find some real gold! We won't be renting an airplane to skydive out of, but I may tuck and roll out of my '96 Suburban for the sake of showmanship. This event is free to the public, put on by the GPAA of Northern Nevada, Parks Department, and other groups. It's one of my favorite organized hunts in the USA. More information. Here's an idea of what the event is like (video from 2016) -

    Bill Southern and friends will be once again holding an outing in Arizona at the LSD (San Domingo Placer District) and camping at or around Jackass Flats. All are welcome to attend and it is free and not a vendor affair, just having fun, learning, and hunting gold. There are tons of GPAA and Roadrunner claims here as well as a couple other clubs so lots of spots to hunt, there is even open land if you do your homework. The only cost to attend is to bring a dish for the Saturday potluck dinner where we also give away a few gifts after chow. The main course of several roasts etc will as always be supplied by Bill and some other members that just insist on helping with the main course. They will also be offering a Minelab Gold Monster training on Sunday morning to those in need of a bit of help; there will also be help available with any questions you may have about nugget shooting. This is not a GROUP outing so everyone must acquire your own State Trust Land Permit since camp will be on State Trust Land, it is 15.00 individual or 20.00 family, go here https://land.az.gov/recreational-permit-portal They may ticket you if you do not get one. There is good access for RV camping and it is a large area. Other folks also use this spot so there often are dirt bike and quad folks camped in the same area, but we get together for evening fires and the potluck near one of our RVs. We also may have a Minelab rep visiting as well as all the other well known nugget hunters and prospectors. I also have one and two year memberships available at my shop as well as renewals with the new claims guide if needed. All questions regarding the outing should be asked in THIS thread on Bill's website. You can find a map and other information there also.

  18. Fair to say a good time was had by all at Bill Southern's fall outing. Plenty of food. It was delicious. Bill smoked 2 briskets, I smoked 1, Kevin Hoagland smoked a pork roast, and someone smoked a turkey. There were a ton of people. Debbie Smikoski, the Minelab representative, came with two suitcases full of Minelab goodies for the drawing, which was free. Everyone walked away with some kind of Minelab goody, whether it be a hat, t-shirt, gloves, etc. Bill donated a Go-Find 40 for the drawing and I donated a pick, there were other donations made as well. Bill, Kevin, Mike Furness, Debbie, and I hosted two training sessions on the Gold Monster 1000. We trained over 50 people on this amazing little gold getter. I went back to a ravine where I had my last successful find and spent one hour walking just to get far enough and exhausted enough that I figured most detectorists would probably be tired of digging trash. That is where I started looking. There was no shortage of trash. Got a nice target that sounded pretty loud, could have been mistaken for trash but I liked where it was positioned, right on the side of the gully before it would drop into the wash. Turned out to be a nice 3.3 gram nugget, perfect pendant nugget. If you have never attended one of these spring and fall outings I encourage you to do so. Lot of fun, lot of good information shared, great food and people. The next one coming in the Spring is going to be at Quartzsite. Here's some pictures. By the way we have moved to a 4500 sq foot warehouse in Henderson. 1180 Wigwam Parkway, Suite 110, Henderson, NV 89074. I sold my office building to the Las Vegas Metro Police Department. I think given the neighborhood, the police would be the only ones safe in that building. I built my building in 1986, so it served me well for 31 years, it was time to cash out. The Metro Police are going to turn my office into a Neighborhood Criminal Justice Center. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Doc from Doc's Detecting
  19. Bill Southern & Kevin Hoagland will be hosting some Gold Monster 1000 Field training at the upcoming Nuggetshooter Outing. The outing will be held at the San Domingo Placer area in Maricopa County Arizona near Morristown Nov. 17 - 19. You must RSVP - see below or Bill’s Forum for details.

  22. It is time to go to Rye Patch for our annual outing. This year I have more of a plan where I want to look for gold. I've done some research but that doesn't find it for me. I'll be using the 19 a bit and high sensitivity 14 on a couple of places. I'll try to get in a few swings with the 2300. One thing I know it is going to be cold. https://www.google.com/search?q=rye+patch+weather&rlz=1C1GGGE_enCN456CN456&oq=rye&aqs=chrome.2.69i57j69i60j35i39j69i60j35i39j0.3897j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 I'll be back on Sunday.
