Title: DS1801 Dig Sunday 16th September 2018 Perth Area!
Post by: Grant on September 04, 2018, 09:58:33 PM
Hi Ladies and gents!

I sincerely hope this message finds everyone in good health.

By popular request the original Scottish open forum is back in the land of the organised dig, suitably rested and married!

(http://i496.photobucket.com/albums/rr321/10oct89/C0099199-4FD8-40B6-90EA-828B6AA28412_zpsf9anouk7.png) (http://s496.photobucket.com/user/10oct89/media/C0099199-4FD8-40B6-90EA-828B6AA28412_zpsf9anouk7.png.html)

We will be visiting a very promising area with Roman road which is currently in stubble.

All the old usual rules apply in that you can keep what you find subject to the current reporting laws within Scotland.

Cost is £10 per person and the list will close on the Saturday evening of the 15th September at approximately 6pm to allow us to get the directions out to you good folks!

Its time to dust off those old DS t shirts and hoodies before it gets too cold to wear them  ;D

Please remove all rubbish from the field and fill in holes properly.

Please listen to the brief at the start of the day.

I've missed the banter and camaraderie so please feel free to bring your sense of humour along  O0

Rather than messing around with the list like we used to, if you just PM or text me on 07885425662 or even email shootinfishin@icloud.com and I'll keep a list locally, I will ALWAYS reply to messages and texts so if you get no reply within 24 hours please try again by other means.

So if your one of the man people who have encouraged me to start the digs again in recent months now is the time to get involved  :D

The land will be in stubble  :) nice easy digging!

There will be free tea and coffee provided, try to bring a cup but if you forget we will have some paper ones.

Answer to the e-mail Grant is No I won’t make this one but hopefully it’s an enjoyable day for all.

There’s a chap who runs another dig, he’s reduced his price of the 16th September dig to £5 because that’s what they used to be, although there’s no mention of it being because DS have started digs again which I find strange  ;D

The 30th also clashes with the Dighty Connect dig although I’m unsure if they are moving that to the Saturday as it seems it’s a busy weekend lol but just thought I’d let you know all the same.

Cheers 👍

Hey Jon

It’s ok anyone with sense sees straight through it.

I actually messaged Davie asking for the dates of the dighty annual event as they weren’t confirmed when I put the post about the 30th up so I plan to move ours to the 7th rather than affect davies annual dig.

So it looks like we will be 16th, 23rd & 7th 👍

Yep Can’t Go wrong with the Nox , easy learning curve  , almost makes any experience you’ve had before with a Detector  Redundent , from the Minelab  multi Frequency stable , it’s fast Target   ID , is superb in contaminated areas , for a slow little bit deeper , the Etrac , or Ctx ,
With a whole lot more concentration and learning , Depends what you want Fast easy Going Detecting covering Ground faster , or slow and maybe wee bit Deeper ,
As You know you  can enjoy finding with any Detector , but if you have the option to upgrade  why not 
Up the percentage
Opt for simultaneous  multi frequency , only consideration , is Fast or slow ,

Dig directions have now been sent out by PM.

Any issues I'll have my phone all day but no signal between 2:45 - 4:45 while in stadium.

Stadium seems to be better now for signal for some reason than it has in years gone by, unless you’re in one of the enclosures lol

ARGH!

Opened up my detector for first time in years and found I had not removed batteries like I usually do.  Some corrosion - poked one of the metal clips that the batteries push up against and it snapped off!  Nooooo!!

Does anyone have a spare battery pod for a Whites DFX they can loan me for the day?  Am about to go play with tin foil to see if I can get it to work... heheheh.

*EDIT*  Tin foil seems to have worked but not ideal so if anyone has a spare pod, please let me know.  New one oredered.   I'll be bringing some foil and a tiny screwdriver with me, just in case.  lol.

Was a hard dig today but managed to find a couple of things - Think the button might have been German, any thoughts?
