Paul Brown Wins Finder of The Year Trophy For 2010Feb 3rd, 2011 | By webmaster | Category: Club News
A hearty congratulations to Paul Brown who has won the Finder of the Year trophy.
Paul Brown was the happy recipient of the Finder Of The Year trophy, which is awarded for the finder who accumulates the most points for finds submitted throughout the year.
Well done Paul.
The OBMDC held it's Christmas party on Friday 17th December 2010. As ever, it was a well attended event that was enjoyed by all. It is always great for our members to get together to swap stories, and compare finds that we have made over the year.
We would like to offer our thanks to Mick and his wife at the Littlemore British Legion Club, for once again providing us with a great buffet. There was barely a crumb left on the table, and that's always a good barometer of the quality of the food Mick & Co have prepared for us over the last few years!
And the winner is...
Finder Of The Year
Trophies were presented on the night, and as ever it was a close run thing.
Dave Connor managed to bag himself 3rd place trophy, with Kev Benning securing himself a well deserved 2nd place.
Finder of the year for 2010 went to Paul Brown, who left us all for dust with the points he accumulated over the year's Find Of The Month competitions. Well done Paul!
Find of the Year 2010
Bill Darley was the happy recipient of the Find Of The Year Plaque, which is awarded for best single find entered on the night.
No surprises there then, as Bill entered his fabulous Saxon saucer brooch - No contest!
Well done Bill.
We had some great prizes on offer for our Christmas raffle, including plenty of detecting related books, boxes of chocolates, (presumably to sustain us out in the fields?) and plenty of bottles of wine, (presumably to sustain us out in the fields!).
Top prizes of Garrett's Pro-Pointer probes were on offer too, and two lucky winners went home with big grins on their faces!
All in all, a great night out for all who were able to attend.
We hope 2011 will turn out to be an even more successful year for the club.
Happy hunting in 2011!
