The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has just announced that they are withholding issuing detecting permits until further review. I fear what that means! 
Please, everyone send (TVA) them a comment. Even if you never plan to hunt TVA property it could be an awful precedent! Also spread this to any detectorists you know. There is power in numbers, but only if we contact them!

TVA stopping giving permits for metal detecting.
Here is the link to send an email.
Something along the lines of:
Please reconsider issuing TVA permits for metal detecting at beaches and swimming areas. No harm is done. Responsible hobby diggers remove trash and often leave an area cleaner than they found it. The hobby is enjoyed by young and old and is a great family activity.
Thank you,
Use this or your own words.  Include your name and email.
We are on a campaign to stop this action and get permits going again. Please share this email with fellow diggers.
