Thanks Frank!

In the past I spent a lot of time treasure hunting with detectors. Did not have a clue on how to go about nugget shooting. I turned to Bill. He did not let me down even though I'm sure it was the last thing he felt like doing at the time. We were back at one of his spots standing in the middle of a wash. He told me to check the spot under his foot. He picked up a signal and wanted to teach me what a nugget sounded like. I went over the spot with my 2000 mod and wam! 3" down a nugget. Bill said" you found it its yours". Thus the under Bills foot nugget came to being. This nugget means more to me than any of my other possessions. It's time for the Under Bills Foot Nugget to go home. If you win the Minelab 5000 I will send you this nugget so you have a special test nugget.

Bill you know I can never thank you enough!

Hello All,

Well this morning I was scanning the Interent gold forums and happen to run across a very touching post. The post was about a fellow, local Minelab dealer here in Arizona that was struck with tragic news. This really touched me personally since it was not only a local Minelab dealer, but a friend and old nugget hunting partner. I seen right way how everyone was willing to help and pray for his family. My first thought being a Cancer survivor myself, is what would happen if that was my family? Well Bill Southern, owner of the NuggetShooter Store in Morristown, Arizona was given bad news about his longtime wife having terminal cancer. This is news that none of us want to hear, so I can't even imagine what is going through his mind, let alone is wife and family.

You can read more about the news on Bill Southern's forum at this link - http://www.nuggetsho...showtopic=24086

After some thought and reading the post above, I knew not having insurance that the bills would be overwhelming, something that their family don't need to stress over. I contact my rep at Minelab Americas and asked for permission to run a raffle on a new Minelab GPX 5000 metal detector. All the funds collected will go directly to Bill Southern and Family. I think this is an awesome opportunity for everyone to help a Brother in need, but at the same time have a shot at winning one of the most powerful metal detectors on the planet.

Raffle tickets are $25 per ticket, no limit on amount of tickets. At the end of the raffle I would personally drive over to Bill's, deliver the funds and allow him to pick the winner of the new Minelab GPX 5000 metal detector.

I felt this would be the quickest way to raise the most amount of money in a short time period.

I'm hoping you all feel the same and are able to at least help out in some way, even if it's just the power of prayer for Bill and his family.

How to Send Payment - $25 per ticket, no limit

(1) You can go to any Bank of America bank in the US and deposit the funds directly into this account # - 457020655606 This account was set up today 2-12-13 strickly for this fund and will be closed when the raffle ends and a Cashier's Check will be written to Bill directly.

If you deposit funds into the B of A account, please email me so I can keep records of who deposited what to make sure you get your ticket numbers. You can email me at - auplacers@yahoo.com if you have any questions.

Hoping we can raise as much as possible.

UPDATE!!!!! PLEASE READ!!!!!



Rob Allison just posted this concerning purchasing Raffle Tickets via PayPal to raise funds to help Bill and his family.



" Hello All,



Just an update, please don't send anymore payments to Paypal for the raffle. I was contacted by Paypal this evening and they said it's against their policy to accept donations for a raffle. They said if any transactions come through, I would have to refund them and write an email back to the person sending funds. I just wanted to spread the word, so if anyone has posted the information for paypal, please try to remove it so it don't hold up any funds for this raffle.



Thanks!



Rob Allison"




I have edited the above post to remove the PayPal links.



Funds can still be transferred or deposited via the Bank Of America account or by check.

For anyone concerned about if you PayPal donation is good, get in touch with Rob via his email address if you are in doubt and he can see if your PayPal donation is good, send him a copy of your PayPal confirmation so he can find the info faster, he said all donations through PayPal prior to around 7:00 pm 02-20-13 should be fine, all donations up until that time were transferred into the special account at Bank Of America,

Seems like it is easier to just donate direct to Bill and Barb......it's about them, not a detector. Just my 2 cents. But, at the same time it's a great thing that Minelab and Rob are trying to accomplish, too bad it got messed up.

Who ever wins it should be super excited! Kudo's to Minelab for helping out, They should benefit from the exposure and excitement this generates for the GPX 5000. As well as Rob & RobsDetectors.com.

This is just another reason I will always buy Mine Lab products. And buy them from established dealers such as Rob and Bill.

Dan,

Everything looked good in your post, you may want to go over to Rob's forum and copy the link to the original topic at his forum as well and include it in your post.

Here's a link to Rob's topic over at his forum, you'll need to click on the link and then copy it once you get to Rob's topic at his forum, it most likely not copy correctly directly from this reply and thus not be an active link that can be clicked on.
