COMING SOON!... 2019 BCDC November 7th Meeting: Terry Lake, of Lake's Coins and Militaria, will be the guest speaker at our monthly meeting. He will be speaking about 'Investing in Silver & Gold'. Terry is an expert in the field, and it should be a very interesting and educational discussion. Want to go wireless on your detector? We will be raffling off a Garrett Z-Lynk Wireless System as our 'special raffle' item that night! Retail on the Z-Lynk is $127! Thank you Red for your generosity!
2019 BCDC Fall Hunt, Prep Night: The Hunt Committee got together in the War-Room a few days before the Fall Hunt to finish the prep work. Our sponsors are always very generous with their donations. We put together about 2500 targets, tokens, and jewelry to be dug up. We had a lot of prizes to give away including metal detectors, pinpointers, and silver bullion.
2019 BCDC Fall Hunt, Pre-Hunt: Everyone arrived for the big event. The buffet was prepped, the hunt fields seeded, the prizes laid out, and the BCDC gals showed up in their pink shirts. We had perfect weather, and participants were ready to do a lot of digging. A big thanks to those who showed up to help seed the hunt fields.
2019 BCDC Fall Hunt, Main Hunt: Detectorists lined the main hunt field to dig more than 2500+ targets. Sterling jewelry, Ikes, Kennedy halves, Mercury dimes, Barber dimes, Buffalo nickels, Indian heads, Kennedy 40% halves, and 1 oz silver bullion rounds were all part of the coins and token prizes buried. The 'Enigma' even made a surprise appearance! Congratulations Jack!
2019 BCDC Fall Hunt, Post-Hunt: Everyone gathered after the Main Hunt to count their coins, tokens, and jewelry. Tokens were traded in for prizes and coins, and enjoy a great buffet. There was a lot of silver to go around! We also had a Poker Hunt during the lunch break for silver Morgans, Walking Liberty halves, and silver quarters as prizes. Congratulations to Team 3 for the best hand in the hunt!
2019 BCDC Fall Hunt, Elimination Hunt: Participants gathered around the circular hunt field for one of the favorite events of our 2 annual hunts... the Elimination Hunt. Numbers were drawn, two detectorists entered, and the first one to find/dig a quarter and hold it above their shoulder won the round. The winners went on, and the losers were eliminated. Defending champion, Dale, was hoping to repeat, but was eliminated in the later rounds of the event. The final round came down to Bernie vs Toby, with Toby showing his quickness and winning the event. Toby won a new Fisher F-Pulse pin pointer, and Bernie took home a nice 1 oz silver round. Congrats Toby!
Check out some of the pictures from the Club's August meeting. The tan BCDC shirts were a big hit, as you can see. Members put up some amazing finds for the Show & Tell, including a 1774 Spanish Reale. Take that one off the bucket list Red. Buttons, coins, rings, and even a watch filled with water. See you in September!
The BCDC was recently contacted by an individual who lost a ring in a local park. BCDC Treasurer Fred Gould assisted the individual and recovered her ring which had a lot of sentimental value. Kudos Fred! It seems like you found some great stuff in that park to go with our BCDC community service obligation!
