Speed Panning
by Shirley Weilnau

Wow! What a time everyone had at the metal detecting/coin hunt outing! Several special companion events were displayed, including ours on competition speed panning.

Larry and I walked everyone through various speed panning techniques, including the one that will be used during competition at the Prospecting Rally. Several people got involved and everyone who tried was able to complete a speed panning in under one minute. Three lessons is all it takes.

"Amazing," is what several people said. The crowd asked Larry and me to do a panning competition against each other and by golly, one of us won. Guess who?

Shirley and Larry Weilnau have their own website: Hooked on Gold.
