That was a good chat Bob and nice to find someone else of a like mind. I love "detected out sites" and the challenge, like you Roman coins or brooches don't even get a wipe now a days, they go straight in the finds box Sad

Clubs are a good thing as it brings a lot of knowledge and  expertise together, oh and purchasing power to bribe the farmer!  Grin

OMG that is so sad ,its like the fisherman taking a prize fish with him to the pond .wheres the challenge in cheating ?
ive never found a hammered ,never found a gold coin ,but i have found plenty of silver willy's,vickies and georgians.nothing worth bragging about really!!
as a fellow detectorist its nice to see other lucky people making good finds and i congratulate them 
when i went to my first club meeting last month i was jokingly asked "do you find much?" and i showed them my small wallet of silver that came from one field out back and i heard someone laughingly mutter "off ebay"
at the time i didnt understand what they were on about ,but now reading this i can see the frustration of long term members

I have never not believed anyone who have shown me one of their finds and have always been generally pleased for them.

I did not even realise this kind of thing happened until I heard a few comments recently.

I must be really naive! Or perhaps I just don't understand what a person would get from it?

To me it's all about the find - being the first person to pull something very old out of the ground and being the first person to touch it since it was lost.

Well regarding the ban the cheats i totaly agree with it they should be banned.They tend to join forums like this and make themselves known eventually with finding this and that and even though they supposed to have thousands of acres here and there,they still come to DW & other clubs for there weekly digs.Aswell as just noticing a certain person on here actually got banned from a club for buying stuff from EBAY and putting it on there site for the best  finds competition and he always had this and that found on the day of a dig, better than everyones.I basically wouldnt give him the time of day he knows who im talking about ive listened to him many times before i got wise.Beware hes slowly dwiddled his way into this club.

i have heard rumours that peeps take or plant stuff at rallies to boost takings at the next ones,there will always be a bit of specilation as to what organisers get up too,goes with the terittory i guess but whats the point in taking finds with you?

That doesn't work for us. Many moons ago on our Easter Rally in Caerleon we planted 40 copper tokens in an area the size of half a football pitch. If you found one you won a chocolate Easter egg. Lets just say that Geoff went home with 36 unclaimed eggs in the back of his van! Grin Grin Grin

Pontless us seeding a rally, as going on that experience nobody would find "The Seeds" anyway! Grin Grin Grin

I told a non detecting friend of mine about this practice a little while ago. He was spechless but eventually just burst out laughing. And that about sums it up, these people are seeking attention in their sad lives but the only attention they'll get is to be despised and laughed at.

You can tell if something has been planted a  mile off!  Comes out of the ground different.

I think they are people who have few or no friends and do it to impress others so they get all the attention, a sad lonely existence being an attention seeker. Or they could setting themselves up so some variety agent will book them for a new  show called; I WANT A FRIEND.

i know a gent who's been doing this for many years buying stuff and planting it at rallies to get best of show attention and actually won a machine years ago.i am surprised its so widespread according to this thread .
he has now got a reputation as a walter mittey type and nobody trusts him any more as they know he sells stuff making out he has found it and planting at rallies to get attention as the 'big man'.
now i wonder what % of finds are being planted at rallies ?
it could be bigger than we imagine...
how you can get around this problem is hard to say ..
