    Thank you I'm back living in the house now but still don't have any furniture, etc to speak of. Sleeping on a mattress on the floor. But I will get there!

    The lightning also hit the outside and destroyed the gutters all around the house and much of the exterior around it. They came today, bright and early (too early ) to work on that, with lots of hammering.

    I've had a big construction dumpster in my driveway since December so they can throw things away. I have taken to throwing my garbage in there too rather than worry about putting it into a small garbage pail and set it out at the curb every week. So I will miss that.

    Hi Tom and thanks for the question!

    Originally I thought it would happen by now, but due to the horrible weather and the very slow forum since no one could detect, I wanted to get to a point where things were a bit more active. Such as the coming few weeks with spring and people actually detecting!

    I also had hoped for more people to enter initially and would really like to see more entries.

    Okay, well thanks for the reply. I will need to get my entry in soon then. IT just was not clear (At least to me) if it was over or not.

    Not a 100% positive but I'm thinking that Angie would like to see more people enter the contest so I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it will be from scratch next time. If I'm wrong, 100 lashes with a pinpointer ......... Angie will let us know how it will work as it gets closer. Hey there is a lot of year left, so I don't think it will be tomorrow

    Don't worry George, I don't own a pinpointer so it would have to be 100 lashes with my SunRay

    I haven't decided yet, to be honest. I very much appreciated those who took the time to post and enter, but overall I was a bit disappointed because given the value of the prizes, I expected more participation. The time of year could have been a factor in that, but this should be less of an issue now. It will happen this summer for sure. Right now we have another contest with a very nice detector as a prize, courtesy of our sponsor John at JMT Metal Detectors.

    We wanted to give back to the forum members for their participation and contributions here, in making this forum a great one. I have not seen another detecting forum give away these level of prizes for contests, and it's really something I want to be very special about AD and showing our appreciation for our members.
