I'm always up for a weekend away. I'd be quite happy to help newbies along, it seems to have become a speciality of mine. ::g

Hi all, 1.44am and here I am sitting up in bed with a lovely new knee that is screaming like a newborn baby b;=+ b;=+ b;=+ The operation was fine but it takes a lot out of you and I need to spend a few more days rehabiliatation before I jump back into action. We have bags of time to get this very important event organised so keep on adding your interest for now.
Its going to be more of a Learning Day as there is so much excellent information to impart and we can ALL learn. Nite nite ... Liam I-) I-) B|

Poor Liam. Get well soon.

A couple of weeks ago while looking for a target he had dropped I discovered that a mate of mine also had a replacement knee. :D

This is something I'd love to have been able to attend, Ian, but unfortunately I'll be ordering beer in English in a very loud voice in Italy over that weekend. Such a shame as this is a gem of an idea.
Essential equipment:
Some sort of electrical gubbins(I'm told it's a Deus). In various colours
Jenkins
Gin.

Having recently got my first detector, I would love how to use it properly. Can you put my name down for this. Thanks.

It might be worth finding out what machines new detectorists coming to this event are using; while someone with experience on a different machine can still give invaluable general advice, there's nothing quite like someone who's had tons of experience on the machine you've just started out on providing pointers.

In an ideal world it would be great to have an "expert" Safari user walking alongside me for 15 minutes actual detecting, listening to the beeps and explaining how they interpret those noises. I'm sure all new detectorists would feel the same for their particular machine too.

I doubt we'll be able to do that for everyone at this event, but it would be great if at least some of the new folks could be paired up with someone familiar with their machine.

Looking forward to it ::g

Hi all, the knee op took more out of me than expected b;=+ b;=+
We still have plenty of time to get everything in order for the big day and I will get the list of attendees updated.
This type of Learning Day will prove a great success I am sure and will be repeated into the future.
Its essentially a day of discovery, learning how to understand the technical aspects of your machine, how to use it out in the field and just as important having an array of top class people who can educate us on all of the other aspects of the hobby.
Chat later, Liam :;@

Hello Liam and Ian,

This is a fab idea and the intinery looks really fantastic.

Every day is a school day ::g

Huge thanks for organising such an event.

Can you put my name down please.

I think such days will help us “newbies” continue on with this pastime and the more the merrier for both the commercial world and hobbyists alike.

Let me know where to send money too.

Hello. I have just been reading through this thread and whilst I will not be able to participate, I just wanted to say that this represents everything good about the hobby.

I was fortunate enough to be invited out a few times by an experienced detectorist when I first started, and believe me, I gained invaluable advice and practical help.

Good luck to all. ::g

It will be cash on the day, probably £20 to include free tea/coffee, cakes, biccies .. EVERY penny goes into the pot for local charities. Mentors will be free of course.
Mike - thanks for your kind words of support, much appreciated ::g

To a large extent we are ALL newbies, learning something new each day in all sorts of ways.

This "Learning Day" will cover just about everything and well worth attending even if we have years of detecting under our belts ;) There will never be a better place and time to get your questions answered. I have run two similar events, Deus Day and XP Day and the feedback from those attending was brilliant, new skills and knowledge taken home to enhance every future run out, Liam [:)

Hi Folks,

Complete novice here just in the process of getting his first machine, so I would be very interested in attending if there is space available...

What a great idea.

As a total Newbie (hopefully picking up a Deus and associated kit next week!!) this would be right up my street.

Work shifts all look good, so its a "YES" from me, please.

And a massive thanks in advance for a lot of incredibly hard work done ALREADY!!!

Thanks Steve, will now add your name and yes Pete do bring along your machine, many of us have machines that we really do not fully understand, so this is our chance to chat with others and learn how to twiddle the knobs with more confidence :D Liam :;@
