That's a shame but a good decision Wink

"relichunting" sorry but I think 100 to 70 acres is ample Wink

just remember rally land is special and needs to be tected on at a optimum time  Grin,,,even on good rallys where 20-30 good finds are made it has still took a average 80 peeps at 8 hours each ,that's roughly 500 hours tectin,, I think anybody else did 500 hours anywhere they would need a rucksack for finds Grin

i can voice an opinion without the rude un called remarks and smart ass comments

Moderators should know better  Angry

Who said Taff does not work hard to get land ? not me

I have been a member of Detecting Wales for years and have been to many rallies

What i have noticed when a rally is announced all of a suden you have a big influx of new members that take a lot of spaces from regulers,is this fair?

70 acres is fine as long as its limited to around 70 people

Hi relichunting I am a new member and have attended all 4 rallies since I first joined so I have become a regular , but I cannot see why you want to only have regulars has new members become regulars just remember you were once a NEW MEMBER!!! I think the problem arises when people put there names down and do not attend thus not only not giving some one else a chance to attend but putting the numbers up and giving a false total on the list

Yes totally fair, Detecting Wales is an internet forum not a club and so is open to all who sign up, the rallies are held as a bonus and have always been on a first come first serve basis, if long term members can't be bothered to check if there's a rally then good for the newby I'd say he is obviously more keen.
The majority of detectorists won't even cover half an acre in the course of a rally, yes it's always nice to have a lot of land but on rallies it can be a case of your eyes being bigger than your belly and a lot of wasted land Wink

I was once a member of a certain forum were they would have a rally on about 20-30 acres and would allow 75-100 people to attend

Total madness   Roll Eyes

The best digs I attend limit the attendees to 50 yes its more expensive but the finds are fantastic and farmers the are paid good money.

People are entitled to an opinion that's what an internet forum is about

And Mike myself and two mates gave Detecting Wales around 70 - 100 acres of land for a Rally a few years back so get of your high horse

Relichunting everyone is entitled to an opinion but we've always, well I've always worked on the basis of 1 person to 1/2 an acre.

Its never been a problem to date (or at least noone has approached me and said otherwise) And lets not forget, everyone has a choice whether to attend or not.

And to reiterate what has already been said, whether you have been on DW for 4 days or 4 years, every member is equal and has equal rights to attend any rally posted. When I announce a rally I always and without exception post a newsletter up advising people by pm and email of the sign up.

If people miss out, its not for the lack of notice given by this site.

I think the postponement is a good call as it would be an absolute washout on Sunday.
I'm a bit of a DW rally newbie. I have only been on one DW Rally so far as I don't have the luxury of free time to attend all the rallies. By relichunter's reasoning maybe I should give up my place to a rally regular?

I personally prefer to have about half an acre per person. Double that and you end up spread out so far and wide that you don't get to have a chat with other members very often and get to see their finds which is one of the best parts of rallies for me. Also, it means that the area gets more comprehensively detected which means hotspots (if there are any) are more likely to be identified. All just my opinion of course  Wink

Well to be honest fella, you've hit several nails on the head there.  Smiley
