Sponsors

We are still waiting on hearing back from a few of last years sponsors, but again things are shaping up as good as last year, but it would be great if you can chase up your local dealers and suppliers and hit them up for a small donation.

I would like to know if anyone or a group may be interested in having car boot sales over the weekend. But the items for sale will have to be prospecting related. Not Trash and Treasure stuff. There will be a site fee of $10 per day. Also you will have to supply your own tables or what ever you need to display your wears.

Hi All,

I hope the winter is being kind to you all and that you have managed to get out for a swing every now and then???

We would like to announce that Gold Search Australia have come on board this year with a very very substantial donation of a very expensive raffle price, we will put all the details up soon, so even if you not attending this year get a mate to purchase some tickets as it just might pay off.

Things are starting to come together and we hope to have some big announcements over the next couple of weeks including full catering ON SITE for those who want a very easy weekend, this still is in the negotiation stages so as soon as we have the details we will release them.

Numbers For This Year

We would like to get a bit of an idea of the number of forum members ( and others ) that are thinking of coming this year. Last year we had approx 130 attend over the 3 days so we are looking at bettering this, this year so please let us know.

As for the accommodation Wombat informs me that there are still powered sites and cabins available, all be it a few so get on the phone and book soon.

Please remember it is still a FREE weekend and what you will gain out of this will be incredible, just ask any one that has attended in the past.

Cheers for Now

Peter

Lates Up Date
There is now just over 6 weeks to got before the Bash so if you have not booked your accommodation at the park please do so now, otherwise you will miss out.

If you are planning to have a Car Boot Sale at the bash please let me know so we can make sure there is a space for you. Remember prospecting and prospecting relics related items only. Not Trash and Treasure.

I am planning to have a fund raising B.B.Q again this year at the Woolly's Supermarket Maryborough. So I will need a few helping hand again this year. Exact day will be announced. I'm looking around the 20th Sept.

Our major raffle prize this year is a "Whites Sierra Pulse Pro Detector" valued at $1195. by Gold Search Australia in Dunolly. If you what more info on this detector go to www.goldsearchaustralia.com

We will be having gold panning competitions this year run by the Gold Panning Ass. Victoria. There will be a trophy for the final winner. So come along and try out your panning skills. There is a bonus "you can keep all the gold that you find"

Also if you are planning to go out on a detector training day with one of our experianced intructors please book early as last year training was very popular and a lot of people missed out. We have Mark & Ronda Hyde from "Gold Prospecting Australia" 0409188138. And also Leanne & Darren Kamp from "Gold & Relics"

Just to bring you up to date of what has been happening.

Minelab has come to the party again this year with a fantastic Auction prize a CTX 3030. Anyone that has been thinking of getting one of these machines to complement their arsenal, here is your chance of getting one at possibly at a great price.

Environmental Creations Dean Smith will be making up and donating a replica nugget of the "Hand of Faith" in recognition of the founder "Kevin Hillier" who past away this year.

The Caravan park is filling up very quickly this year with booking, faster than this time last year. So if you have'nt booked I suggest you book "NOW"

Don't forget about the Car Boot sales. If you or any of your mate want to have a Car Boot Sale stall selling prospecting items, let me know.

We have got some great road side directoin signs going up for the Bash this year. These hav be printed and donated by Addcolour from Canberra ACT. These signs will be displayed a few days before the Bash to show people were to find the event.

We have a few more sponsors coming on board this year but saddly we also lost about 4 from last year.

I'm still looking for anyone that may have a collection of old detectors from the "Past" to display the history of the evolution and the development of the Metal Detectors. Even if you only have one old one that you would not mind putting on display please let me know.

Also I need willing hands to help in our fund raising BBQ on the 20th Sept at Wolly's (Safeway) Maryborough.

Hi All,

With only a few weeks to go Until the Bash, and things are all coming together for even a bigger year than the last.

We are still looking for some sponsors so if you know anyone that can dig a little into their business to help out it would be greatly appreciated.

We do have one request from all members, and that is we are looking for a portable PA system as our regular provider of this has pulled out. What we are looking for is something like a stage amp with built in speaker and a couple of inputs, we do have a couple of mics, but with the size of the Saturday Open Mic Table this year I think we are going to need a couple more??
So the list is, 1 x stage amp and speaker unit, 2-3 mics with leads

Can anyone please help out.

Peter

I dropped in today (2nd. Sept) at the Laanecoorie Lakeside Caravan Park to see how the bookings are going. They informed me that the parks is filling up VERY quickly. They have now only 3 cabins left and 6 power site left. But plenty of non-powered sites.
They still have the house that can sleep up to 12 people. Four bedrooms, 1 with a queens size bed, 1 with a double bed, and 2 with a double bed,single bed & bunks. For 8 people it will cost $180 per night, or $22.50 per person per night. It is $12 extra per adult or $6 per child on top of the 8 people per night. This is cheaper per person than a powered or non powered site.
