Here is a great email that SVDB received from David Ponath for the help he received in finding his lost wedding ring.

I have been married for only three months when I lost my white gold wedding band while playing catch with my son in a Rocklin park on 1/20/2015.  It was a hard conversation telling my wife that it was lost.  After spending several unsuccessful hours on my own searching for the ring I contacted the Sacramento SVDB metal detecting club for their help.  Don Dunn as well as John Hainlen and Scott Newens all contacted me to offer assistance.  In addition Don, Scott, Barbara Anderton and Rick Costello all searched for my ring with their metal detectors. On 1/26/2015 Don Dunn called me to say he located the ring while doing a final sweep of the area.  While on a last “oh give it a few more minutes” attempt the ring was recovered. I would like to express my sincere appreciation for everyone that assisted me in recovering my lost ring.  You guys are unbelievable! I appreciate you so much you have no idea.


The overwhelming support from all of you provided me with a story I will one day tell my grand-kids and have for the rest of my life
