Today I received my Detect America calendar in the mail. I would like to personally thank Frank - "Mr. Detect America" - himself.
He was nice enough to use one of my photos in the calendar. All of the photos in the calendar are great and they really did a nice job putting it together.
And, as if including my photo wasn't cool enough, they also sent me prizes! An 1877 seated dime and also a camoflauge Detect America baseball cap.
Check out the Detect America website, and if you aren't already a member of their facebook group, go over and ask to join! It's an awesome group and they have contests and giveaways of metal detecting gear.
Also, be sure to check out their radio show that airs on Friday nights at 8:30 pm (EST). I've heard some great discussion on proper ways to clean coins, ground conditions for detecting, and other important aspects of the hobby.
Detect America is up & coming - look out for good things to come from them in the future. They're a group of great people, always willing to help. As the hobby grows more & more popular, this group provides an opportunity for a newbie to interact with experienced detectorists.
So, check out the site, join the facebook group, listen to the show... hope to see you there!
And again, I truly appreciate being included in the 2014 Detect America calendar.
