Hi Neil. How are you?

 I don't remember him - what was his name on here?

I am good Peter and hope you are also.

 Not sure on his name on here but he looks very familiar. I am great with faces but appalling with names. In fairness we had over 1,000 attending members at one point! and people came and went or got banned!!!! So funny now looking back at how crazy the Detecting War of 2009 got!

Be great to catch up one day for a rally.

cheers

He does look familiar - mine you I think I joined GDC in about 2008 / 2009 - and after Cardiff Scan came here in 2010 (maybe) - during the heydays.

Tbf I'd just like to find a Henry III penny - I've only ever found two quarters and one half - let alone any gold ones!
