September 2015 Club Hunt at Joe Rich
Despite the fact that there was a steady rain most of the day, a large number of members, and even a couple guests, came out for a fun day of hunting at a field in Joe Rich, approximately 15 km outside of Kelowna.
The field was once the main hunting ground for the annual hunt put on by the detecting club that used to meet in Kelowna. Although their last big hunt was a number of years ago, it had also encountered not so pleasant weather. And thanks to their hunt ending early, the field was still well seeded and many coins were to be found these many years later.
