Good advice Dave

I am trying a one day dig, not expensive, some of the money goes to a local charity.

So a chance to see how much I enjoy it before trying larger events, if I find nothing should get some good experience and advice.

Just a bump for those thinking of going to a rally, do your homework before handing over large sums of money, especially the big commercial events...

Beware of the phase "undetected" might not have been by that organiser, but may have been smashed by the local clubs, do a search on the internet and ask on the forums, someone will always know what land has been detected. that doesn't mean there will be no finds, as good arable will always throw up new finds.

If you are going for the social side of things then not so much of an issue to hand over £50+ for a chat with a few mates lol...

I think I would rather go to a Club BBQ and socialise there rather than spend the day on a commercial dig with a few hundred other people racing after finds ect..just does not appeal at all...I be not long started in this hobby but have a few permissions now simply by knocking on farm doors and networking..

I have been on good rally's

I have been on good rally's and found nothing

I have been on well meaning rally's that have been a disaster

you pays your money and takes you chance.

But there are bad rally's out there. Some are misleading, some are dishonest. I have seen planted finds. Club fields reused and advertised as undetected. Waste height grass. Cannabis openly smoked, funds stolen, charity money never received and so on.

do some research on the club or group organizing the rally. Are all the posts by the same few people? if so why?
