One of my fav parts of the country, mibbi see you there, as a spectator.

Sorry I approved your post earlier today then noticed the same post needed approving which I thought was a duplicate, did you re-edit your original topic ?
Cheers

More to the point, and I love gold, what's the current value of that lovely little pile? :D
Will I? Won't I? What kind of silly question is that?

The championships are held on the last bank holiday in May at the museum of lead mining in Wanlockhead near Dumfries just over the border. A licence to goldpan is obtainable at the museum at nominal cost but is waivered on the championship week. I was the goldpanning instructor there for nine years and probably taught some of you guys on this forum. I sold a substansial colection to the museum when I left and I still have a small collection. The museum has a large collection of Sottish gold on view in there gold room. There is more gold in Scotland than people think, its just getting out there and panning for it. Unfortunatly I won't be able to make the championships this year owing to wifes broken leg. Good luck to any one who goes. Anyone interested I have a few ex demonstration Klondyke goldpans for sale for £15.00 including postage.
