Clearwater, Florida Park Recovery

It all started with a friendly tournament of volleyball with my company to raise money for the American Diabetes Association.  What was a very fun event unfortunately ended with park full of people searching for my wedding band.  On the last game of the day my ring flew off after an attempt to set the ball.  We had been playing in the rain so a wet hand made it that much easier to launch my ring into oblivion.  After about 30 minutes of approximately 30 people combing the court for my ring with no results, I needless to say a little bummed.  One of my co-workers presented a possible solution.  He had previously lost his ring as well and his wife handed him a metal detector to search for it.   I borrowed his metal detector and searched the court for another couple of hours in the rain.  Sadly enough I yielded no results.  Five days later I searched for possible metal detector services and came across the SRARC website.  I sent out my email for help at 1am in the morning.  To my surprise, I received a phone call hours later at 7:30am  from Stan.  We arranged to meet at the park where I lost my ring.  Stan had texted me when he approximately five minutes away.  I had run across the street to grab some orange juice and a banana for breakfast. By the time I got back Stan had already been on the volleyball court.  He proceeded to ask me about where I may have lost my ring and for me to describe what it looks like.  As I was describing my ring, Stan held up my ring in his hand. “Does it look like this?”  I cannot say thank you enough to Stan for making my day.  Despite my wife trying to make me feel better by being so wonderful and understanding, deep down inside I was sad that my ring was gone.   The service that Stan and the SRARC provided is priceless and deserving of much recognition.  Thank you Stan and SRARC.
