    Last week summary and first Seeded Hunt

    Got in several hunts last week hi-lited by a 1936 FDR political pin, 3 Mercs a Rosie, 1 War Nickel a V nickel (in cleaning solution no photo) and 23 wheat pennies (also soaking). Also had an unusual clad week finding $22.12 in change including a clad half spill of 2 coins. The seeded hunt occurred Saturday. I had my reservations about doing one of these but it was a new memorial hunt for a member of a club who passed away. I am glad I did it as it was really well run and I had a good time. There were 3 hunts. The 1st hunt was a warm up hunt which had a bunch of foreign coins (including some silver canadian coins, US wheats and a Geo cache inclusion, which had wheat pennies painted yellow that had coordinate numbers on them. Of course I found a bunch of these as I had no clue and no way of figuring out the location of the prize, it was still fun. Second hunt was full of some newer US silver , nickels (buffalo, war nickels and V nickels) some older foreign coins and Indians and wheat pennies. This was another fun hunt. The last hunt was a pretty big event. Brass tokens were hidden with lots of US silver and clad coins. The top brass token prize was a US $1 gold coin. I didn't win the gold coin but I did get a nice packet of stuff included in the photo. Day also included free Lunch and soda and water all day. All in all this was a great event. Got to admit I did not think a seeded hunt was going to be this fun. Wisconsin Digger

    Wow, the regular hunt was nice, but that seeded hunt sounded like a blast! I've seen some videos of seeded hunts and competitions with categories like your geo cache and even speed hunts, so have a good idea how they can go.

    Also, I didn't know there were any clubs left in Wisconsin. Is this club still active, and anywhere near the SE part of the state? I know there's a prospecting club about an hour away from me, but not a whole lot of gold here (although I did find a couple flakes panning locally ).
    Equipment:
    Minelab: CTX 3030, GPX 4800, X-Terra 705. Whites TDI SL.

    2017 -Silver 28 Bling 18 Gold 2
    2018 Silver 8 Bling 1 Gold 1
    2019 Silver 7 Silver bling 2
    2020/21 Nothing worth mentioning

    Best finds: 28 silver dime spill, 1800s Dutch customs seal.
    Oldest/best coin: 1837 Upper Canada large cent
    Oldest find: 1800 Sailors Luck token

    The club was N.E.W Detecting Club and I think they are out of Appleton or Green Bay. They are on Facebook if you want to check them out. Thx Dave

    Yes, that's quite a bit of a drive for me, and probably you as well. We really need a club in our area covering SE Wisconsin and NE Illinois.
    As a side note, glad to see you survived the Ryder cup!
