I and a friend will be there with our 3030s. I just bought mine a week ago, have been fortunate to hunt with RayMo and Dr. Bob - they've been helping me, but I don't want to take away from their detecting time. Excited bout this class, been reading good reviews.

I attended the Boot Camp in Gettysburg yesterday and had a wonderful time. Andy's knowledge and teaching skills were a great help to me and I learned a lot. He broke each feature down in terms that you could really understand and made sure everyone was familiar them. Charlene was really nice and helpful as well. On top of that I met a great group of hunters. I would highly recommend this class to anyone with the opportunity to attend.

2017 Sessions being added . . . .

Another Bootcamp session has been added to the list for 2017 - this one will be in Woodhaven, Michigan which is just south of Detroit.

We are working on more dates and locations to meet the inquiries we have been receiving so be sure to bookmark the Bootcamp website at well as check back here for more updates.

If you have not seen what a Bootcamp offers, visit the website and read about what the "Bootcamp experience" is like.

They have been filling up faster than past sessions and in fact we had to add a second day in Gettysburg in Mid March (although the snow made us question that decision when we all headed out into the field).

Look forward to meeting you at an upcoming session.

Have you ever thought of coming north of the border?

There is a good Minelab dealer in Toronto called Radioworld?

I would be happy to put you in touch with them.


Additional Bootcamp Dates in 2017

We have been able to lock in a few more dates for 2017 . . . . . all three will be in July.

1) The first will be in Winchester, VA on July 2nd.

2) The second will be in Wlikes-Barre, PA on July 9th

3) The third will be in Woodhaven, MI on July 30th.

We will have Todd Yerks. a.k.a. CT Todd, at the Wilkes-Barre, PA Bootcamp and look forward to working with him as he is always a great instructor that knows his equipment based on real in-field experience . . . attendees will get the benefit of two seasoned instructors that will have your detectors dialed in for your type of hunting.

You can see the details on the Bootcamps and see where they will be conducted. Go to Minelab FBS Bootcamp for more information.

As far as west coast locations, we are trying to nail down locations and dealers able to support the Bootcamp due to the logistics of getting all the gear out there and back home again . . . . we are close so we have not forgotten about the west coast.

Hopefully you are able to make one of the Bootcamps in July . . .

I just got back from the Portage BootCamp.
Andy and Charline do a great job.
All aspects of the CTX and ETracs operating features where covered very well. It was a nice group not too big so every question was answered and discuses until it was clear.
Had a nice hunt in the park, that included a couple test gardens and lots of buried tokens and coins to locate with the newly installed programs that were available at the BootCamp.
Andy wandered around and was availablel to answer any questions in the field .
It was a good time and very informative , glad I went.
Thanks again Andy and Charline

I attended the 2nd July Winchester Bootcamp, which was just outstanding! Even though I was brain-dead (lack of sleep/new Granddaughter in the house), I learned a lot and this opened my eyes toward trying out different settings that will no doubt help me find items I've been missing. We all gained a much better understanding of the machine. I appreciated Andy's teaching techniques and also how he answered questions from each of us that hunted in different environments. Of course it was great meeting the other detectorists (wish I had more time to chat with them). Also at the Bootcamp I got to learn more about different options of protecting your machine, more about the capabilities of the various coils, etc. I also picked up a pair of the Deteknix wireless headphones (no wires) and will give my opinion of these after I put some hours on them. The location was great! One of the guys found some Civil War era bullets. Want to say thanks to Andy and Charlene for such a great time!

We have a few more dates & locations for 2018 and while they are on the East Coast, we did meet with a few dealers from the West Coast at the Minelab Conference that are interested in working with us to hold some on that side of the country . . . we are working on the details and hope to have more locations soon.

The locations / dates locked in so far are:

1) Portage, IN >> April 22nd

2) Albany / Cohoes, NY >> May 27th (This session will have Todd Yerks and Gary Kilmer as co-instructors . . . . they will have a wealth of information to share!)

3) Gettysburg, PA >> June 24th (this offers a great opportunity to possibly find some period relics from the battle)

Details on the specific locations and details on the Bootcamps are available at . . . . . . MINELAB FBS BOOTCAMP

Hope to get a chance to meet you at one of these or upcoming sessions
