Anton Rotary Club WEEKEND Rally SEPTEMBER 1st & 2nd 2018

Post by irons4mike » Fri Feb 02, 2018 8:34 pm

Hi Guys,
Firstly an apology for not keeping you in the picture regarding our digs for this year.
Unfortunately, due to the problems leading up to our last weekender, which any one who attended will remember resulted in us having to move our campsite because off a charming "village lady" who objected to being able to see our tents from the top of her garden! our farmer and landowner, who has supported us for the last 7 or 8 years has decided that he was unable to offer us any more land.

Since we received this bombshell I have been trying to find a farmer with suitable land willing to support us.

NOW THE GOOD NEWS!! We have been offered 180 acres of ploughed and rolled land to detect over the weekend of SEPTEMBER 1st & 2nd 2018

We will be based at a pub with it's own campsite just outside Andover.

As before we will offer hot food and refreshments, including breakfast on Sunday morning and free tea and coffee all weekend. We hope that as many detectorists as possible will join us in the pub on Saturday evening for a meal and some live music.

Anyone who has been on any of our previous rallies will shortly receive an invitation email from Tony our treasurer. I will then publish further details, (costs etc.) on the forum.

We will limit numbers to 200 per day, and we will ensure that fresh fields are offered each day.

Here's to great detecting and kind weather.

Cheers
Mike (irons4mike)

So what are you offering - charities will benefit, good company, good detecting, pub on the doorstep, catering on site.....is that all ???!!!! Weather doesn't matter, finds will be there somewhere - how can we say no? Looking forward to seeing further details.

Mike I am looking forward to it again.

You did an amazing job reorganising the camp site last year due to the NIMBI "village lady", just a shame that she appears to have cost you the whole farm.

I have done a couple of these weekenders and your one day events and always been very impressed by the organisation so I am sure that despite having to find a new landowner that this will be another great event and very successful.

Thanks for your kind words Evan, I’ve lusted after these fields for years, but the farmer has always said “no...no way am I allowing detectorists on my land!!”
I now know that he has had some bad experiences with nighthawks in the past. So I’m even more grateful that he has relented👍

Last year lots of Roman coins if you went into the second field and turned right ::g

No prizes for guessing that when I went into the second field I turned left and found nowt ;;z

Sadly going the wrong way when Roman finds are around is a skill I have taken to the highest level B| B|

Mike,
in your first post you said "Anyone who has been on any of our previous rallies will shortly receive an invitation email from Tony our treasurer." Have they been sent out yet as I have not heard anything and do not want to miss out.
