Five members of TheRingFinders met up at Mission Beach in San Diego, CA. about the time the daily tourists were leaving the beach. Mark Ruby, Tony Eisenhower, with their wives, John Hughes, Curtis Cox and myself had dinner at a local restaurant. After eating we grabbed our detectors to enjoy a couple hours of detecting for pleasure.
We all took off in different directions planning to get meet up later. I tried a little water detecting, without much showing I moved to the dry dry sand. It was dark when I got a crazy signal from my CTX 3030 detector. I wasn’t hunting using a light, making it hard to see the set of keys on a lanyard. I usually turn keys into the lifeguards for their lost and found. The lifeguards were of duty, so I put them in my pocket. A half hour later a police patrol car pulled up to me. They asked if I had found a set of car keys on a lanyard. Of course I gave them the keys, also taking advantage of the opportunity to tell them about TheRingFinders.com .
A little later a young lady with her friend walked up to me. She was the owner of the keys and wanted to thank me for finding her car keys. It had been a horrible two hours sense losing the keys. She didn’t have any spare keys. She was sincerely grateful. This was another opportunity to tell her and her friend about TheRingFinder.com website. It was a great get together with fellow members of TheRingFinders. As always it is awesome to be able to return something that was lost to its owner.
