Mitch King spoke to the club about his recent trip to Colchester,
England for two weeks of intensive metal detecting. If you were at our Annual
Benefit Hunt you may have notice Mitch took off early. He really needed to

He arrived in England with a cold. The cold mornings and rainy
afternoons did not help for the first few days, but that did not stop Mitch. He

Mitch passed around items that he brought back from last year's trip. He
always brings back the previous year's finds when he is over there. Pictures can
be seen on the clubs face book site, https://www.facebook.com/tcasfl Go on
