There are a few of us going to The Detecnicks fun weekender 7th-9th AUG. If anyone is going from here then feel free to come over and say hi and have a drink with us, social distancing of course :thumbsup: we will be flying our usual flag by our tents. you can't miss it, it's Wessex Searchers. :thumbsup: we use this to find our way back at night. nothing worse than unzipping a tent to see a hairy arse staring back at you that you don't recognise. can be very awkward trying to explain yourself :D

Just reading a post on FB, where someone had written a review after attending Detectorfest which was highly critical to say the least, and someone associated with the rally, had basically threatened to pay him a visit and do untold damage to him, not a very good image of the hobby :thumbdown:

Not good for the hobby nor does do the credibility of the person concerned any good either.

This "Hand Bags At Dawn" mentality is one of the reasons I won't do Facebook...

I did hear about threats etc, but I don't know who the person or persons concerned were. :thumbsup:
