Todd and his buddies from Sudbury, Ontario booked into the ‘stay & play’ Seguin Valley Golf & Country Club, Seguin, Ontario just south of Parry Sound!
A few days away on a guys get-a-way golfing adventure! A few bevies may have been had. Todd decided to swim 200’ over to an exposed rock area and he felt his wedding band fell off.
The guys all headed back home and I received special permission from the manager Gail. You see one of Gail’s employee Marci Vine is an amazing Friend and Kelly Shires Pink Sista recommended me!! Marci advised Todd to call me!
So I headed up to the golf course, received directions to cabin #2. Todd provided a photo of the area. I swam over to the rock with all my gear and searched for approximately 10 minutes with no luck. I decided to check the top of the rock!
BINGO!!! Solid tone on my Minelab Excalibur2 underwater metal detector and I found Todd’s wedding band sitting on top of the rock just under some small shrubs! I swam back and surprised FaceTimed Todd with the good news!
check out the video;
Thank you Todd for trusting me to recover and return your wedding band! And Thank you for the donation to the Kelly Shores Breast Cancer Foundation as well! He receives a tax receipt!
Thanks also to the staff at Sequin Valley G&C Gail for permission and Marci for the recommendation!
I mailed Todd’s wedding band back and he’s out of the dog house!!
Received a text and subsequent telephone call from Holly and Australian Sheila. Holly has been visiting Ontario to help a dear Friend going through brain cancer. Previous weekend they were at a cottage on Rankin Lake in the beautiful Parry Sound area. Holly had taken both her engagement ring and wedding band off and tied them on her hair elastic then wrapping them around her cell phone. She picked up two oars and before she knew it saw them fling off her cell phone onto the deck. She found her wedding band on the dock but could not locate her white gold engagement ring.
Holly called a number of “ring finders” in a panic and took the first one available out of the Barrie area. Unfortunately, her engagement ring could not be located. She was again in a panic mode as she was heading home to Australia in a weeks time. Holly was extremely upset she called me again. We had made a last minute plan but had to cancel with the severe weather and tornado in eastern Ontario and Quebec with heavy damages. Upon speaking again mid-morning she had mentioned her return home and was desperate. I then finished packing my truck and said “LETS DO THIS – BE THERE IN 3 HOURS”.
We arrived at the cottage location, brought all the gear down and I proceeded to do a short grid from 4′ out from dock in and under. I decided not to do the area under the deck with a rock crib which is very difficult even though I also brought along my Detecnix pin pointer for that spot. Closer I was to shore after 10 minutes with 2 pull tabs, then a nail….there was the strong distinctive tone on the Minelab Excalibur 2!!! At this point I had a snorkel mask on without the snorkel as I left it in my truck. Holly was heading up to my truck to retrieve the snorkel and I said “wait a minute”…
After a few handfuls there was her beautiful engagement ring!! B=I=N=G=O!!
Here’s the video *******
We were both excited. She really didn’t think I was going to find it but she flies home a very happy lady.
I didn’t accept a reward for my “Pay-it-Forward” campaign for a charity donation (Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation) because I consider Holly an “EARTH ANGEL” for being here for a month looking after her dear Friend with cancer. I will Pray for her Friend!!! I was given an invitation if I ever head to the “LAND DOWN UNDER”….Sure going to consider that offer!!
I have already advised Holly of another awesome ring finder in Australia “Jean Williams”!!
Great to meet ya Shiela “Holly”!! Cheers and safe travels back home!!
