Please use the other forums on the Spot for non-DIV related post.
Diggin' in Virginia is in NO WAY affiliated with any other "organized" hunts.
We DO NOT have any contact information for any principals of any other "organized" relic hunts.
PLEASE DO NOT email or call us for information on hunts other than DIV!

XXVI and XXVII lists have been posted
January 26, 2014 02:39PM
Please read carefully and follow the instructions.

If you are on the participants list you DO NOT have to email your confirmation that you will be attending. But you do need to request to join the private forum to have access to the hunt information. I will mark your name on the participants list as confirmed once you have been approved to join the private forum. Your slot isn't secure until your entry fee and release form has been received. You can make payment with a personal check, money order or paypal. Once your payment and signed release form has been received then you will be marked paid on the participants list. The confirmation deadline is Tuesday 2/4 at 6:00 p.m. EST

The deadline for payments will be Friday February 28, 2014. If we do not receive your payment by the above date then your name will be removed from the list and an alternate will be moved into your slot. Once your name has been removed it can not be added back in.

Private forums have been setup for disseminating information pertaining to XXVI and XXVII. Information posted on these forums will be private in nature relating to the hunts and of interest to people that are participants in these hunts. This private forum will be used instead of sending out information via email.

The link below will take you to a section in the CONTROL CENTER that will allow you to make a request to join the group for the private forums.

http://www.mytreasurespot.com/main/control.php?0,panel=groups

After you make the request, a forum moderator will have to approve the request before you can access the private forum. Request will only be approved for those persons that are participants of the hunt. Once your request is approved, you will see the private forum listed on the main forum index below the regular DIV forum.

The regular DIV forum will continue to be the main source of information about all DIV hunts. Only use the private forum to receive information specific to the hunt (i.e. payments, parking, hotel info, etc...) or to ask questions specific to the hunt in which you are participating.

Any information posted or discussed in the private forum should NOT be relayed or discussed with non-participants of the hunt.

******For those of you on the alternate list......don't give up hope. For various reasons folks have to cancel and a lot can happen in the next couple months. Watch the forum frequently. If someone cancels and an alternate is moved up you only have 48 hours to get your confirmation in. I know several folks missed out because they didn't know they had moved up. The way we look at is, if you signed up then you must be interested in attending the hunt so you need to stay on top of what is happening. Read the forum daily or have a friend keep you updated.

Congratulations to all of you. We are looking forward to seeing all of our old friends again and meeting all of you new folks that will be attending!!!
Thanks much John & Rose for the invitation

Re: This is my first DIV invite and I can't wait !! dance
January 28, 2014 09:37PM
Man you are going to have a ball. My first hunt was DIV V. I had watched the website from the very start.
The excitement kept getting bigger every day. When I got to the hunt I was ready for bear. When the digging
started it seemed that someone had sown nails.I then rethought my game plan, I slowed down and started
hunting slow. I found relics, I didn't burn up the world but I dug relics. Remember that it is not just about
finding things its about finding friends and making memory's. I think that friends are worth much than any
relics in the world. Just enjoy the hunt dig some talk to strangers,a lot of strangers. If you find more friends
than relics you may just have the most fun you can have with your clothes on..Good luck
