Anyone think it’s worth restarting digs?
« on: May 18, 2018, 11:29:00 AM »
We always prided ourselves on having land at this hardest of times of year.

I was glad when D&S started running digs as despite what anyone says there’s not really enough folk up here to have them at 3 places every Sunday so I was relieved as the pressure was off and after 4 years of it kinda needed a real rest  :o

I’ve loved the chance to go see my team play on the Sundays and watch the F1 live so no fud can’t text call me (driving) tell me the result before I’m home, but something has always been missing, and that’s the people whose company I enjoyed for so long.


I miss the banter  :-[

I even kinda miss the moaning in a Sado
masochistic sense!

I miss that feeling of getting Sunday cracking a cold beer and despite the shite weather feeling like I have a sun tan  ;D

Anyway, complacency could again prevent it being cost effective, I don’t know.

What I do know is I miss all the characters.

YES!!!! KillieDee (Harry) and I would be up for this...we're both still struggling re health issues but would try and make the effort, even if for a short while  ;)

Enjoyed DS digs but cant see big numbers attending regular weekly digs again due to other digs going on .. maybe doing quarterly weekend rally special events would work Grant .. (  Loch Fyne rally was great )

Hi Grant! Yes! Although I agree that weekly might be impractical for a while... see how it plays...

I'd be up for it as would The Captian.

Getting tired of digging the same old fields - there are only so many Viccy pennies that you can dig and still get excited. Dug 8 today plus a 1929 shilling but it is the variety that I miss. Need to add to my vast collectinos of hammys (that's one for the record)

Its always good to have options!

Maybe to get the ball rolling  and a cost free dig (just a suggestion ) get a beach detecting dig/day out  organised ... gets everyone out who cant get land, bit of banter / catch up and if it doesnt work out you/DS isnt out of pocket... then again its just a suggestion.

Either way when my healths back on track im up for either!
