Congratulations to Lucky who has become DetectingScotland.com's new Administrator. Lucky (Jim) is a longstanding, extremely loyal and energetic member of DetectingScotland.com and steps up from being DS's Deputy Admin.

Lucky takes over from Grant who is stepping down after guiding the site for the last couple of years. We greatly appreciate all the time, effort and hard work that Grant has put into the site and wish him well.

I'm looking forward to doing this job, Grant's will be a very hard act to follow. The site is growing very fast indeed and the hobby is just becoming more and more popular. The DS forum under me will be offering as much as it can to the general public as is possible, I'm here to serve the public.

Well done Lucky, fair play you've worked tirelessly over the last few months. I would like to thank Grant as well the the huge amount of work he's put into this site since he took over. The way he has carried himself through most of the teddy throwing has been great, hope you stick around fella!

Always remember, think & consider it carefully before you do or say anything you can't easily undo/say lol and you'll be fine  :)

Any technical stuff or advice don't hesitate to give me a shout

Thanks Grant, I'm an honest guy and like to play things by the book. I'm hoping to help as many members of the public interested in metal detecting as I can.  Ive an auld head on my shoulders, very few are able to pull the wool over my eyes. I enjoy the hobby and would like others to enjoy it as much as I do.
