I received a call from Wayne, he had lost his wedding ring at Carburn Park, Calgary in the snow during a photo shoot. Wayne explained, that while doing a photo shoot he wanted to capture the kids playing in the snow, he laid down on the snow and had them throw snow at him while he took their photos.
When he got up he shook the snow from his bare hands and you guessed it, the ring flew off into the snow. Despite the efforts of everyone searching for the ring by kicking and scuffing through the snow they couldn’t find it. A few days later Wayne visited The Ring Finders Website and called me.
We set up a time to meet at Carburn Park, Calgary and when he arrived he took me to the site which was a nice leisurely stroll through the woods. When we got there it was easy to see where the loss had happened due to all the foot prints. I knew I was looking for a Titanium Ring and so expected to hear a loud mid-tone on my metal detector with a ID# of around 55, I searched the trampled area and on my 2nd swing got an a loud mid-tone signal and an ID of 61 so I scratched at what was already compact snow until I got to terra firma, once I got to the grass I knew the target was most likely under ground which meant it couldn’t be his ring. I stood up and pin pointed it and it came up at about 4″ deep but then I noticed I was getting another target about 3 inches away upon scraping the snow away I recovered Wayne’s wedding band. He was very happy to get his wedding ring back and said his wife will be even happier. The walk through the woods took about 10 minutes the recovery about 2 minutes. Another happy ending courtesy of The Ring Finders.
