Forum Dig 2012 - PICTURE THREAD!

Post by NeverWntd2Dance » Thu Aug 23, 2012 3:59 pm

Hey guys,

I thought it would be a good idea to create a picture thread especially for our Forum dig!

That way, people can upload any piccies they take of the event here and they can be all kept together and not in people's separate topics. ::g

Will be great to browse through after the event, and will also make mine and Liam's job of doing a write up (with piccies) for treasure hunting mag a lot easier ::g

Thanks in advance guys, and look forward to meeting everyone!

It varied from 2 or 3 hard but short showers to red hot sun. The 2 of us both got burnt AND soaked ! We are at a hotel now but most people seem to have found something they were happy with from what I saw / heard. Should still be enough for tomorrow's guys even without going to the additional field.

Just got in from the dig. Had a great day out, not much in the way of finds but happy all the same. Right laugh trying to get off the field. Gav and Sally got stuck in the mud and although me, Angie and UB40 tried our best to help them out it couldn't be done. It was down to our hero farmer and his tractor to do the job. Many thanks and a massive well done to Liam and Laura for organizing this dig. You both have done an outstanding job. Pictures to follow tomorrow. All the best,

Sean and Angie
