March 9th, 2014

Hello Everybody It is with great pleasure that I can report that we found what we were looking for today. This hunt had been planned for over a year but we finally managed to get everyone together today. 2 Years ago, Jackie Toop lost her wedding band whilst gardening, Both Mr & Mrs Toop looked high and low for the ring, no luck. Since then Mrs Toop, had passed away suddenly. It was of great importance that we find the ring she had lost. It was a bit of a stretch that the ring would still be there, as grass clippings had been bagged and hauled away. The hunt was a Members only hunt and because of the size of the area being hunted, we could only have a small number of Members Present, 6 was the magic number. The day was grey and threatening rain which soon came along. After 2 hours of cold and rain, I FOUND IT was yelled out. The ring had been found, under an apple tree not to far from what was left of the grass clippings. After telling the relatives that lived next door, Mr Toop and his Daughter Sarah were called and told the good news, Mr Toop couldn't believe it. It was Club Member Mike Wesloski who did the actual find. I want to take this time to say Thank You to all involved, especially to Mr.Toop and his Daughter Sarah. The ring is back where it belongs.
