Oval Beach, Saugatuck, Michigan gives up another ring.

  • from Grand Rapids (Michigan, United States)

Received a call from (Judge) Joe H. today, the beach patrol gave him my name and cell number. He was out in waste deep water throwing a football when his gold wedding band fell off. I was on my way to pick up my Ring Finder partner Dave Boyer for a search of an inland lake when I got the call so I told Joe “I will be there in 45 minutes”. We arrived at 2:10 pm, made our introductions and got to work.  As you can see in the picture the waves were 2 to 3 feet high and very difficult to search an area doing a grid search. Joe stood out in the water where he said he was playing and Dave and I started a search in the area. In less than 10 minutes I got a very good signal with my Fisher CZ21, the harder part was trying to steady myself to scoop the prize. One scoop and after the sand sifted out I had Joe reach in and pull out a gold wedding band. It was his, as there was a wedding date (8/12/94). His anniversary to Leah H. is tomorrow and I’m sure there will be a nice celebration now. Joe is a farmer, football coach and a judge visiting from Illinois. Welcome to Pure Michigan.
