Thanks for posting Cath. As Steve said "Sounds interesting".

These days £25 seems quite common for a days dig with "commercial" groups, and that does not include the "Training" nor food and drinks, so it sounds very reasonably priced.

Additionally its for charity, although I was aware of Medical Detection Dogs I did not know about this charity so had a look at the https://www.medicaldetectiondogs.org.uk/about-us/ really interesting.

So I have also booked in. Well over 2 hr drive, so I will be the one either turning up very bleary eyed, or very late :thumbdown:

Got Crawfords (South) some extra trade to as while on phone got some new headphones from the very helpful lady.

Hope all of you who have booked into this event really enjoy it. I’m expecting a report back on all the wonderful info you’ve learnt. Especially aimed at Steve, only because I’d love some good tips on the Deus II :thumbsup:

No real idea, but I suspect you need to get on the phone first thing tomorrow to have any chance. Good luck :thumbsup:

I only booked this morning (Thurs 19th), so there were spaces then.

As Oxgirl said give them a call early in the morning.

I agree about "Never being too old to learn", even if a lot of it is what we knew years ago and had forgotten!.

Same here :thumbsup: . I’ve been to one of Gary’s expert days before, but it didn't include in-field training. I learnt absolutely loads from the wisdom he shared and now I’d love to be able to do some practical training too, especially with the D2.

I hope it’s a brilliant day for all the participants.

Unfortunately it's too far for me and I know everything anyway ( :lol: ) but I think there's a place for more of these training events and they always seem very popular.

Be grateful for any feedback afterwards :thumbsup:
