Hi Members,

Our 2018 meet was held this year north of Coolgardie on a Beacon Minerals Tenement at Kunanalling
with 17 members attending.
Unfortunately no gold was found on the lease but Bards started the gold rush [ha ha!!] on an adjoining pending lease.
Each night a happy hour was held at the campfire & the raffle managed to raise $400 for the RFDS
& I thank those attending members for digging deep into their pockets & buying tickets for the prizes.

The major prize winners were:
Max won the Minelab Pro Harness.
Peter (R) the $100 voucher from Finders Keepers in Kalgoorie & 12 month subscription to Gold Gem & Treasure Magazine.
Yours truly won a Pin Pointer & Mark won the other Pin Pointer.
Peter [Nightjar] won the Nugget Finder Advantage Coil donated by Prospector's Pick Bunbury.
I wish to thank all those for contributing towards the raffle:

Minelab
Coilteck Gold Centre
Lucky Strike Gold Prospecting
Prospector's Pick Bunbury
Gold Gem & Treasure Magazine
Finders Keepers Kalgoorlie

Great update Ted, the gold gods weren't interested in playing however we had a great friendly group share our experiences with.
Do think Kims story about the wedding ring was a classic. Then to go on and find that 1895? medallion was truly a memorable experience. Good luck with the research trying to locate an owner.
We are now back home, not any drier here, the rain gods were very generous.







Good luck & safe travels
Peter

We may not have dug our fortune, however the nightly campfire was certainly warm and the company friendly and the full moon beaming down.

















Good luck & safe travels

Great read on the camp Ted, thanks for all the organising that you did, know it is a big job and very much appreciated. Thanks to Minelab for the new cap that I scored, and not to mention their beaut handtowel, though it is white - the red dust will quickly change that. Great collection of photos.

Yes Nightjar, I have photos, will get them to you when on a bit more internet data.
