Team XP USA event

The XP Team USA command centre was an exciting place to be, team members Dave D., Sonya Harshman, RC Dunn, Tim Glick and David Kimble held down the fort well with a steady stream of customers wanting to ask about XP products.

Hunters were entertained and educated by the large XP monitor which played the latest XP Team USA Video features and Gary’s XP Skill School videos.

The team also made sure their guests stayed warm as they served up complimentary hot piping coffee and fresh doughnuts throughout the cool and drizzly day.

XP field testing

The XP staff were on hand all day to answer visitor’s questions about The XP Deus, The ORX, The X35 and HF coils and the MI-6 and MI-4 pin pointers, Attendees were given free test drives with both machines. First time users were given hands on training from team members and then were given 30 minutes to try the XP out on their own. First impressions matter and both machines did not disappoint.

The XP Deus and the XP ORX were also big winners in the open hunt. Both machines out- performed in the finds department. The finds were more unique, older and deeper, even Gold was found by our very own Team Member RC Dunn.  A curious crowd formed around RC to see the best find of the day and to get a glimpse of the star of the event…The Deus.

We meet some great people and made new friends at the event. We are all looking forward to attending next year, which is already being billed as being bigger and better.

Next stop Ohio.  XP TEAM USA will be at the 10th annual Dayton Digger Celebration on June 15th.
