 "We had a great and very busy day on May 17 Minelabbing Day!! The sponsoring of Minelab was great!! The weather was beautiful and our visitors were enthusiastic about this Minelab event! We learned a lot of this day. We hope we may organise next year Minelabbing Day again and want to expand the day with more detector activities and maybe a barbeque in the evening."  DJ LAAN, Holland 

"The event was a great success bringing young and old, new and experienced to the beach for such a memorable event. We would like to thank Minelab for allowing us to hold the event and look forward to your invitation to hold future events."  Clodhoppers MDC, UK
