Sweet cheers I will be throwing a $25 at you for a hat. Can we buy now or have to wait for the meet

Hi everyone, have made camp at Luina, plenty of places for tents and vans, fair phone reception, BUT lots of mozzies in evening, so bring repellant!! :mosquito::mosquito:
March flies during the day, so if their constant presence will annoy, i recommend a fly veil also.
It is the “wild west” after all…
cheers

Hi Everyone,
I would like to say a big big thanks to the two Andrews and Miguel for organizing a great get-together yet again for the members, and sharing knowledge and experiences.
As the old timers used to say ‘Wouldn’t be dead for quids’.

I’d like to also say “Thank You” to Miguel and other committee members for organising the AGM.
I met some interesting & helpful people with loads of experience.
On Sunday I drove to Corinna and put the “rubber duck” in the Pieman. I paddled up to the Whyte then up as far as Jarman Ck. Holy Mackerel…it’s wild country up there! Whyte blocked by many huge trees and branches. Very few places to even pull up and use a detector and Jarman was only a trickle and I don’t think a whippet could have got up in there to check it out. So I headed back. About 6km all up and I am still sore 2 days later…LOL.

Hi Tom,

It was great to meet you and finally put a face to a name. The country on the west coast is something else, isn’t it? Gives you a whole new level of respect for the old-time prospectors.

Although I missed this AGM I’d love to get my hands on a hat also please and I need to renew my membership too.

Hey everyone,
It was a very enjoyable trip west in surprisingly tropical conditions, Great to catch up with friends old and new and cover some new ground.
A big thanks to committee members for organising the event, Ron Gregory for lease access, people who donated raffle items, Allgoods and Deloraine Signs!
Look forward to next meet, most likely at Back Creek, early April.
cheers,
Andrew

G’day everyone, it’s been a while since the Heazelwood trip but I thought I would post a shot of my finds from the weekend - 9 bits of gold detected with my SDC for 0.57 gms and the rest panned.The 3d is just for scale and was found at Exeter with the Nox 800. It came out of the sandy soil fairly clean and bright.
