2 ginger beers!
I missed this dig too! But as you can see there are still some good bottles to be dug. Maurice found more sodas on this day. Good job guys! On day two of the club dig two ginger beers, soy sauce pottery and Farmers Dairy bowling pin quart. (The above picture has been altered to conceal the identity of these notorious diggers.)
