Hi Guys.
Grab your diaries.

I'm delighted to say that our farmer has come up trumps this year and has offered us 150 acres of cultivated arable land for us to detect over the weekend of Saturday August 31st and Sunday September 1st 2019.

We are based a yet another Pub a couple of miles out of Andover, Hampshire, camping will be available on the Friday and Saturday nights and hot food will be available both days including breakfast on Sunday and free tea and coffee all weekend.

The pub owner has given us a private room for our exclusive use on Saturday evening, we will lay on some music and food will be available through the pub.

Now for the really good news......the fields lay literally just across the road from a recorded and registered Roman Villa, needless to say detecting on the site itself is a no no!!

Now for the nitty gritty:
Cost per day is Β£12.50, Β£25.00 for the weekend.
Camping on Saturday night, including breakfast on Sunday and two days detecting Β£40.00
Camping on Friday night Β£5.00

Anyone on our mailing list (ie. if you've detected with us before) will soon receive an email from our treasurer.

If you would like to attend and you are not registered with us please send your cheque for the appropriate amount, made out to Anton Rotary Club, to: Rtn. Tony Lynn, 4 Red Rice Road, Upper Clatford, Andover SP11 7PU.
Please stipulate the days you are paying for and whether you are camping and finally
PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS AND TELEPHONE NUMBER
Confirmation of your place and all further information will be by email.

If you havn't been on one of our rallies why not give us a try, can't promise good weather, although it usually is, and we cant promise wonderful finds, although there often are.
What we can promise is a warm welcome, good detectable fields and a guarantee that ALL our profits will go to our local Rotary charities.

Let me know if I've missed anything

Cheers
Mike Walton
Anton Rotary Club

Hi Mike! Me and my partner would love to attend this! Do you know how much the cheque should be for the full weekend without camping for two adults but only myself will be detecting... My other half is coming for the excitement 😁 would we make the cheque out for 25 or 50? Best regards

Hi Sundancelois
We only charge for detectorists so if your partner is only coming to support you then Β£25 will cover your weekend.
Cheers
Mike

Is there any other way to make payment such as Bank transfer or PayPal friends? as I'm struggling to find anyone who still owns a cheque book. Thanks

Hi Guys.
Things are looking good for our rally, just about one month to go.

I went to see the farmer who was in the middle of harvesting our fields. He was happy, plenty of sunshine and excellent yields (our fields were down to Rape seed this year)

Saturday is looking busier than Sunday at the moment but there are still places available on both days.

If you have a problem with sending a cheque in payment and would like to pay by bank transfer please email our treasurer Tony Lynn at [email protected] and he will reply with our bank details and a code number to identify you on our bank statement.

I always say this but it’s worth repeating, we run these Rallies for two reasons only.
1. To make money for the local charities that we support, and 100% of the profits go to the charities.
2. To give you guys the best detecting experience that we can provide.

If you’re still undecided......free tea and coffee all weekend and detecting slap bang next to a recorded and registered site of a Roman Villa should get you scrambling for your cheque book πŸ‘ŸπŸ‘ŸπŸ˜‚πŸ‘
Cheers
Mike

Hi Mike

Will all fields be open on the Saturday or will you be keeping some fields back so they are fresh for the Sunday ?

Absolutely, we will reserve land just for Sunday and in addition the Saturday fields will be open on both days.
Unusually we have more spaces available on Sunday than Saturday. So There will be a lot more land per detectorist available on Sunday.
Cheers
Mike
