12 sleeps I think. I never get time to go to the pub, too many camps to visit and up at 5am both mornings.

GemQ,Ray

Have a listen to the soft city bums not camping out with the group ::) come on ducky go out and buy a swag , just not safe walking in town :-\ just don't know who could be waiting around the corner from the fish&Chip shop :-\

If Ray snors to much we will be on your door the old farts hit the sack early and are up making more noise before the crows are up

As always we will be having a great time and for those that are not coming suffer :P :P  but still wish you all we there as it is a
Weekend event

Duck I will be shorter as I full my pockets with gold the day before

Dave,

Spot on mate, got to camp close to the ground so you can smell the gold and be at one with nature. Then again there is the snoring, farting and the odd scorpian for company :-\.
Dont worry Ray keeps us in line, and beats the sparrows by an hour or so in the morning.  :o

I thought Fife may have turned up at Wedderburn but the baby might be keeping her busy. I see March last year as her last comment here.

Sid,

Looking forward to catching up mate.

Cheers Gemq,

Finally I get to meet a few people off this Forum.
Have had not much detecting of late, so the wait is soul destroying.

Looking forward also detecting with me brother in law from Maryborough on the public holiday, after the Token hunt. We have hired a GPX5000 for the day.

BTW, are Kmart specials allowed to enter for the Token hunt....8 inch new coil though and super tuned by me.

Just got a new coil and detector shaft for it and found my first coin under the clothes line in a blink of an eye at this new house I am staying.

I will be staying in Inglewood for those that may be there also.
Anyone else?

Sid

Sido,any brand is welcome to enter in the Minelab Wedderburn token hunt. Remember that anyone bringing partners has to keep them off the actual hunt site unless they are wearing the participant wrist band.
Dogs on leads are ok.
