Keep Detecting and keep well,

Nobody gets ALL the gold. Theres still plenty left for you.

Udo and Bill

p.s. We will by flying over Andrew Greck "Greckie" from Golden Triangle Tours in Victoria to do the Minelab and Metal Detecting training - he's been detecting since 1989, used every Minelab detector since the 1600 and is Minelab Endorsed.

He has also been conducting training for the last 6 years.

...We reckon he is the best we could get for that part of the training.

So Dont Miss out!.
