New guy in Southern Indiana
Have been interested in metal detecting for some time, but never pursued it due to lack of time. With being a collector of antiques and interesting old stuff, loving the outdoors, and enjoying the "thrill of the hunt"; it was only a matter of time until I got involved with this hobby.
My new toys should be arriving this week; A Garrett Ace 250, Garrett Pro-Pointer, and Garrett Master Sound headphones.
I'm located in the Georgetown area, but am originally from Corydon. Am really looking forward to this spring!

I can dig it! "WP"
No metal detecting allowed in New Albany or Floyd county parks.

Just read this about Floyd County, bummer http://www.floydcounty.in.gov/ordina...02003-VIII.pdf
I was detecting in Corydon over the weekend with a friend when I was approached by a groundskeeper. He informed us that they are discussing banning metal detecting as well after some individuals have recently been digging holes and leaving them open, leaving garbage, and generally making a bad mess when they detect. He also said that the last time he approached a guy while detecting, the guy was real mouthy and the police had to be called to get rid of him. I was allowed to detect, but was warned to not leave a mess or any holes. Perhaps showing him the bag of trash that we had picked up and the fact that we did not leave any holes convinced him to let us stay.
Seems the idiots and jerks are going to ruin the hobby for the rest of us by burning our bridges with these parks.

That's somewhat typical of Floyd county. Can you guess who drafted that ordinance? New Albany allows adult bookstores across from churches, ugly billboards all over the county, and they worry about detectors in their parks. A better approach would have been to cite anyone found to be damaging the grounds.
Grew up in Floyd County, but live in Harrison County now.

Hey, JS...I am also new from So. Indiana, I'm near New Harmony on the Wabash River, I've been a Garrett user since '84, I just bought a GTP 1350 and love it, I have heard lots of good things about the ace series! Is there anything left from the Civil War action that occurred in Corydon?

Its a national historic site I believe which is off limits for detecting. HH
