Detectival Rally September 2017.

Post by JBM » Fri May 12, 2017 5:34 pm

Have we any MDF members going to the Detectival Rally on the 15th-17th September2017.

Its always nice to put names to faces and have a jar or two together.

All the top names in the detecting world will be there.

Lets hope that on this occasion there is no thieving or folks being asked to leave the rally.

I have always liked detecting the Cotswolds and we are told that there will be 1000 acres of new land.

I notice that Charities will also benefit from this event.

Certainly WHRADA members will be attending.

Happy Hunting,

Jerry.

Hello Jerry

I'm going and all booked up. Really looking forward to a long week end detecting! Not been before but enjoyed the recent weekend Anton Rally at Andover so thought I'd do more weekend rallies. If there is a beer tent I'll be in it!!

You can bet your life there will be a great beer tent and entertainment.

All we need is some summer weather as we sit on bales of hay. ::g

Happy Hunting,

Jerry.

I am "persona non grata" for this event, banned as I criticised the lack of good land at the XP Rally. The land for that event was organised by the organiser of Detectival.
Good luck to all who attend and I hope this time round they have not got some done-to-death local club land again. ;;z Its in the Burford area again.
The social side should be good though and for many attending that is the most important bit ::g
Happy hunting everyone, Liam :;@

Hi Liam, you have got to be fair as the organizers have stated categorically that this is a 1000 acres of new land.

Part of the trouble last year being that there was just to much land and may folks could not reach it.

Whatever happens its impossible to please everybody, but that just life.

Perhaps this years event might have people saying afterwards "If only I had known i would have gone".

Thats the name of the game when taking part in this now over commercialised hobby of ours.

Meanwhile Happy Hunting.

Jerry.

Thanks Jerry, I did notice that they have now added the new land, so that should do the trick.
I am sure it will be a super event for all and a great chance for forum members to meet up at last and have a good natter. Myself and a buddy did actually manage to detect on every field last time and yes it was a lot of walking, but good exercise! Good luck to all attending and I hope Lady Luck is in attendance, Liam ::g :;@

Hi guys just a quick question about this rally does anyone know if the rule about smoking on site applies to the fields, the way it's described in the rule's is confusing we all know you can't smoke in confined spaces so why mention it if we can't smoke on the fields then count me out thanks Dave

It may be due to the dry stubble in the fields .Health and Safety etc. ;) Jerry.

I am a non-smoker myself and I never considered the situation of non-smoking rules, I expect it will be one of those rules that is hard to police. :-/
The hobby has certainly become very commercialised but for many in the hobby these days, the commercial events are their only experience of detecting and in fairness to them, its what they like and they are happy with it. They are the future of the hobby as much as anyone else and over time they will make good contacts with a wide range of others and hopefully get a regular permission.
I think these big events should have at least one beer tent every three fields ... Liam =))

This event is a bit too close in date to Norwich - can't get the time off work - I know which I prefer:)

Smoking? common sense - don't throw lit fag ends on dry stubble. In a previous agricultural guise I've set fire to many stubble fields in the past but for some reason it's not allowed these days...

Phil, I do remember all those burning stubble fields. I think it may have been banned due to some Brussels ruling, not sure, but Brexit may reverse that, although it seems we are going to pretty much adopt 95% of the current EU laws unless seriously challenged, Liam

I see the raffle list of prizes is second to none.

Well over 30 detectors up for grabs, plus other detecting items.

Lets hope the weather is fine.

Happy Hunting,

Jerry.

I doubt that burning will ever be allowed again. Even if it was most farmers wouldn't do it because they now save fuel, manpower and fertiliser by planting directly into lightly cultivated stubble. ::g

Think that it is probably to do with Global warming, around here they bale it up and flog it to the power stations ... which is a step up from burning it in the fields. Air pollution is also a major concern this days, and open burning can cause problems in some areas.

No doubt Brussels / global warming, etc. So the power stations emit the smoke a bit higher up in the air than at ground level, but (probably talking complete bull*** here) the laws of physics I would have thought in my ignorance dictate that burning a given amount of organic material will produce a given amount of carbon monoxide / dioxide or whatever pollutants they are concerned about - does it matter if it falls to earth immediately, or in a few days' time, or a few miles away from where it was burned?

In the old days I was told that burning the stubble accelerated the absorption of nutrients into the soil - plough a few days after burning - no waiting for the stuff to rot. Also it was good fun and smells good - check the wind, light a match in the right part of the field and let nature do the rest:)

I read that many EU farmers still burn the stubble anyway, they pretty much do what they want to do and Brussels turns a blind eye.
Will be interesting to see what happens in farming practices over the next few years.
Detectival - I hope it all goes well for everyone. The land should now be much better, with 1000 acres of undetected land promised ..The ECMD/MDF rally follows soon after and some of the Detectival crowd will be coming to Norfolk, hopefully with pockets stuffed with good finds ::g
Many people attending these events do not have a lot of spare cash and so I really do hope theyhave a fantastic time, Liam OooO

Being serious for a minute ... burning stubble in a power station is Green process, as the resultant energy is mostly captured, whereas open field burning does little good other than provide potash.. Also powerstations now employ chemical scrubbers so the majority of nasties can be captured and intelligently handled... I'm the old days we lived in caves... but between then and now progress has been made.

That is the travisty ... while the rest of the EU are intent on breaking every rule in the book... we stick to the rules with dogged determination ... and that I guess has been our downfall.

Good luck Jerry, I hope you have a fantastic time and manage to identify some of the MDF crowd.
When I attended the XP Rally last year we went to a Little Chef near our hotel in Burford. The chap at the next table asked the waitress if he could order a breakfast but have something instead of the black pudding. Her reply, which to this day has baffled us, was "No, I am sorry, we don't do any swaps at weekends" =)) Really made us chuckle!
Best wishes of course to all the others attending this great detecting event, may Lady Luck hover over you all, Liam ::g

Thanks ss47.

Its having a dog that keeps me going.

Its no use me saying to Ty, Iam to tired to take you out.

We rescued Labs for 30 years and we thought it was all over 18 months ago, until this chap who is 50lbs of Muscle needed re homing.

He a very gentle affectionate dog.

Happy Hunting.

You're so right Jerry ::g Dogs have always been an important part of family life to us. All but one have been rescue dogs. ::g Love the pic of your 'pooch' - (don't tell him I called him that)! :D

I am fully with SS47 here "Apologies to the moderators for veering off topic". If the moderators get upset at us saying "very well done sir" to a gentleman that both still gets out there detecting at 83 AND rescues dogs that need rehoming its a very sorry day for all of us.

So first of all a massive "Well done" on still getting out there and detecting at your age JBM, a fine example to us all.

Secondly well done on rescuing the dogs over so many years.
Like you say "Its no use me saying to Ty, Iam to tired to take you out." I have exactly the same issue with Horrid Hound.
But its like you say "having a dog that keeps me going.", I know there are some days I probably would not get out of the house if it was not for the dog. So its very much a two way thing.

I think this shows a combination of getting out there with a dog and detecting has to be good for you.

JBM, and all others, have a great time at Detectival irrespective of finds. But I hope to see some nice finds afterwards.
Burford is a nice little town so if you have free time take a wander around it. Also some other nice places close by so don't just restrict yourself to the dig especially if traveling any distance enjoy the area.

Having been a moderator on an international forum previously I see this from both sides. You often need to keep a thread "on topic", but to some extent you have to allow "Great forum banter".

So before I get banned I will also say a big "Thank you" to all the moderators for putting up with us users, (having worked in IT support for many years I know that the computers were always less trouble than the users!!).

In the last few months there have also been some on here with health issues, so I will wish them all the best, BA43 especially as he has had to put up with us lot on top of his heart attack!.

Good hunting to all, in your teens or eighties or any where in between.

Been nice knowing you,

Life is a lottery in many respects and to those who are unwell "get Well soon".

Thanks for the nice"tail wagger" comments and may your pouches be full. ::g

Happy Hunting,

Jerry.
