Re: Want to learn all about detecting? Newbies (and others) Training Day Feb 2nd Lincolnshire

Post by liamnolan »

Been very busy on all fronts but below is what has shaped up today. I am indebted to Wardie and his Dad-in-law Richard for sorting out some excellent land and lots more. ::g
Location - Tealby area - https://romanlincolnshire.wordpress.com ... hoard-pot/ Village Hall for the morning talks, but booked all day for us, handy for toilets. Address will be posted soon.
Date - Sunday 2nd February.
Time - 9am arrival for registration, tea/coffee and intros.
Cost - £15 per person, every penny goes to charity. Perhaps Air Ambulance this time. Cash on arrival. Bring some cash for the raffle .. drawn before we head off to lunch.
Finish - Its sunset at 4.50pm so we will be off the land by 4.30pm latest.
Who can attend - MDF members only, plus any family members. Pets are fine.
Topics for morning discussion include;
The history of metal detecting, the Laws, where you can and cannot detect.
NCMD/FID - which to choose and why. Insurance cover, who speaks for your hobby?
How to get a Permission, some tips on what works, applying to landowners and parish councils. What can YOU offer in return, building trust and respect.
Machines - how they work, coils, control box and knob twiddling, varying frequencies, headphones, tools, GPS, clothing etc.
Researching your land - maps, online tools, sourcing information, why it makes a difference.
Planning your detecting day, rest breaks, food/drink, weather issues, parking up, security of yourself and equipment, being aware of livestock, gate security, farm vehicles, permission paperwork, mobile phone.Talks and demo's from our own experts.
Midday - you can bring along some sandwiches etc or visit this local pub - http://thekingsheadtealby.co.uk/ for a pint, food, natter.
1pm - Some good land will be available, probably rotted stubble. Never been used for events, just one or two detectorists over the years. Some MDF detecting gurus have offered to join you on the land to carry on the tuition. I am indebted to them.
Test Beds - Practical demo's of effective detecting - tidy digging on pasture, coil swinging and ground coverage, speed Vs finds recovery, depth, systematic straight line, grid or headless chicken?
Charity Raffle - I will beg prizes from manufacturers, plus you can donate some if you wish! ::g

Official map of the site roughly 160 acres 2 public footpaths, close proximity to Tealby, also an old mill in one of the fields next to the river, plenty of era of ages, never had club digs or rallies, I myself have detected it and found a mixed array of items, several hammered coins, Georgian coins, lead seals and I believe the chap who used to come had found Roman coins.. oh I also found a cannon ball so it’s a good spot to have a look round and test out machines. Any questions please message myself, or Liam. I look forward to seeing you all and have a great day.

Looks like it'll be an enjoyable event, bit too much of a trek for me down on the south coast so I won't be able to come along, I hope it goes as smoothly as the charity rally that you put on in sussex recently Liam, I didn't find much but I enjoyed the day and can't fault the organisation at all.

Thanks Jamesey, its good to run the events in different parts of the UK, so this is a good chance for those new to detecting and those not new but wanting to learn more, to meet up, tuition in the morning and then onto a lot of really promising land.
All in Roman Lincolnshire, 9th Legion countryside .. Liam :;@

Just back from a recce of the land and facilities with Wardie. Everything looks really impressive, the land is wrapped around the farm buildings for the afternoon and a LOT of it, plus plenty of local history everywhere. The attractive village hall is right in the middle of Tealby, good car parking, village shop in the car park, super facilities so we can get our food and refreshments sorted out there before heading over to the afternoons land for detecting.

Hi all, camping is available to those who would want to, can bring caravans but they’d have to be solar panelled because there isn’t any electric to the grass paddock 👌

Such a shame as it.s less than 20 miles from where i will be and sounds like a great event.Hope you all have a great time and hopefully i can attend other rallies during the year.

Cheers Cris.
