Thank you to Tom Ashworth for his continuation speaking on workings of metal detectors, hitting targets, ground balancing, noise cancellation, sensitivity, how to read the screen and discrimination. He is very knowledgeable on all these subjects and hopefully the info. has been very helpful.

Don’t forget your metal detector club meeting this Saturday February 3 at 10:00 at the Kingsland library in the big room. We will have meeting talking about our booth at the March Treasure Show in Llano followed by the rest of the story given by Tom Ashworth on how to set up a metal detector in reference to soil type and items to be found. After his talk is the raffle with a real silver coin and tune and test sticks for your metal detector in the raffle to boot. Then, we will be having a club outing at the John Kuykendall Center in Llano at 1:00 to try out everything Tom has gone over in his two presentations.
Just a reminder of our meeting February 3 at 10:00 at the big room of the Kingsland library. We will have meeting and then a continuation of Tom Ashworth giving us instructions on how to set up our detectors for objects we are looking for, soil types that requires different settings, and a host of other need to know settings to get the most out of our detectors. Tom in his last presentation did an excellent job in explaining the different settings in our detectors. Now to tune them to what we are most looking for and environments we will be using them at. The weather is about to get perfect for getting outside so come finish getting prepared to detect. Invite your detecting buddies for this.

Just sitting there talking to people as they come by the booth and hand out forms and take money for our raffle and then walk around and see all the other booths there. Not bad.
