West Aussie detectorists meet up.
« on: September 23, 2015, 13:50 »
Well I been on this forum for a little over a year now, in that time 3 of my mates have joined the forum also. I have met one forum member and spoken to a few others on the phone. Now I'm not great at organizing things but I wouldn't mind catching up for a bit of a social chat to put some faces to the names. Would anyone be interested? Suggestions for a place that's easy for everyone would be appreciated. If there's some interest we will organize a date.

Sweet, that's already a small mob and I'm sure there will be a few more. So when are people available ? Some place close for all? Any ideas? A Saturday would probably work best for me. Maybe down by the river somewhere. Couple of drinks and a chat and bring the detectors just in case we run out of things to talk about ( doubt that) haha.
