It's was back in the 60's that I've been in Placerville. I just don't see how I could make this one but I've love too. It's got to be the greatest Gold Prospecting Summit ( show ) a person could make. You have so many knowledgeable people  under one roof giving the talks.

PS Steve you don't have a list of the dealers that have a booth ?

Steve, not only would I love to be there for your presentation on detecting for gold, I'd love to take in the others as well. Sadly, I'm already committed to another conference at the same time or wild horses and cranky mining mules couldn't keep me away.

All the best, and thanks for the info. as I may be lucky enough to make it another year,

Lanny
