What will happen to the Federation of Independent Detectorists?


The Federation of Independent Detectorist is one of the two main national metal detecting organizations in the UK  formed in 1983 as an alternative to the NCMD. On January 27th 2014, Colin Hanson, the founder and honorary secretary of the FID passed away. There are rumours on the metal detecting forums that the FID will be disbanded.

Thanks, I don't know if you noticed (or cared) that this is a post from February 2014. Since then, there have been other posts on the 'FIDD', such as: 'Kakistocracy in UK Metal Detecting' Monday, 17 March 2014
and "FID to be Continued by Central Searchers?'" Sunday, 9 March 2014
