I love the idea of "Finds of the Day", but unfortunately I know that some people tend to be a bit more unscrupulous than most of us - we've all seen this before on the commercial rallies. There was the famous case at a organised rally two years ago where one of the Finds of the Day entries had purchase the item the week before off E-bay and ended up winning a Fisher detector, and another one where the Medieval silver ring brooch put in as an entry had red clay still on it, yet they were detecting on black peat coloured soil. Its strange what some people will do in life for attention. Thankfully this does not happen to the best of my knowledge at DW rallies.

I think we should have a couple "Finds of the Day" competitions a year, but not announce at which rallies they are at and do it the same way as yesterday, where we just ask anyone who wants to enter at 4pm to join us in the parking field. It seemed to work well.

I shall have a word with Geoff regarding prizes. Unless of course members want to make donations.

Any other thoughts

I like your idea Neil. It would be workable as you have explained it and as you have said I to have seen finds presented at rallies that tend to be so obviously not fresh out of the ground and had red clay on it and we were detecting chalk upland where the soil is like sand and almost black.

 ha ha,  iv'e seen lots of it going on in the past,  one guy at the rallies was well known for it,
he'd bought a roman brooch off a stall at one and put it in lol,  it was disqualified  when the stall holder had told them he'd bought it off him earlier,
 whats more that type are not found in this country, their from poland or somewhere like that, lol,
 iv'e seen him with some before on rallies, and pretending to find hammered and roman on the field,  even pushing his own mud,/ soil onto them ,  lol

It would be good to have find of the day in specified categories....Coins, artifacts etc

But not to give prizes, the pleasure of having the best find should be sufficient enough reward for the finder.

Well said Phil

Whenever theres a prize of any value attached to an award you,ll get people cheating.
A laminated award would be enough of a reward for a genuine detectorist.
