Awesome. Not only that you thought of calling the Metal Detecting Club, but that they were so willing to come out and help.

The vast majority of people who you meet face to face in The Villages are just wonderful. Pull off a cart path with a map of Antartica and make believe you are lost. Everyone want's to help. They won't look at the map your looking at. Smart move with the correct call. Good Job.

Is there a Club that finds Gold Krugerrands?

Think they can find my expensive Rolex watch that I lost somewhere in or near The Villages? I don't remember the color or type, but I will recognize it when I see it.

You wouldn't think so on TOTV sometimes but here in person people are really nice. When my golf cart broke down so many people stopped to offer help and two women actually helped me push it out of the way.

You are definitely smarter than the average bear. I don’t know if I would have thought about metal detectors. If I did think of a metal detector I would not have thought about the local club, I might have bought one if the hearing aid was not under warranty for losing it. Clearly you get the quick thinking TOTV award tonight. Nice to hear a happy resolution, that’s not always the case on TOTV.
