Ross Gold-Town World Record Gold-Panning Attempt (5th Nov 2016)

The town of Ross, Westland is well known as New Zealand’s ‘Goldtown’. Now we want it to rate as the World’s best Goldtown by winning the Guinness world record for the most people panning simultaneously. So we need heaps of people to come to Ross on November 5th to help us gain this record. It will be lots of fun. Everyone is welcome. Check out the details at:

I’ve been told “We are preparing 300 bags of ‘paydirt’ for the event so everyone should be able to take away a bottle with some Ross gold in it!”
