Team Garrett Europe.
The origin of this team is actually a story by itself.
The members of the team are members of the first hour of the Facebook group Garrett Metaldetector users Holland – Belgium.
The goal at first was to go out on diggs with a small group of people of the facebook page.
This resulted in a fun day of searching every 6 to 8 weeks.
We would travel all over the Netherlands because not one of our members lived close to one another’s.
Pretty soon we all had our own camouflage find vest and we became a little club.
Nowadays, the team has a real team outfit and even our own booth for sales at important events such as Detectorworld and Detectival where we sell various team merchandise and organize raffles.
Why Garrett? …
While each seeker has its own preference for a particular detector brand, the members of this team are convinced that with Garrett, they use the best the market has to offer.
The team members currently use mainly the Garrett AT Max ,the AT Pro and the ACE Apex.
There are numerous aspects in which Garrett distinguishes itself from other brands.
The user friendliness, the high reliability and -easy to use – are crucial points that make these detectors such a success.
In addition, Garrett is a brand that stays true to itself and their core values while being innovative, the Apex is the perfect example of this with it’s multi-flex .
Garrett Metaldetector users Holland – Belgium.
On May 17, 2015, Frank Kroon came up with the idea that it might be nice to create a Garrett Facebook page.
He just purchased his first detector, a Garrett Euro ace, and wanted to learn more about it, and thought others would to.
The aim was to create a page for Garrett users to show finds, ask questions and to provides members with tips and tricks.
This turned out to be a huge succes and soon there were more than a thousand members.
In that time Frank called Kooistra Detectors and asked if they were willing to support the page, by donating some Garrett merchandise to have a small raffle .
They accepted and from that point on, the group grew even faster.
The page nowadays has more than 3.300 members, who all are passionate about their hobby, and help each other out with determinations.
Every now and than we have raffles and competitions, some small, some bigger and by now we should have had our very first big rally, The Dutch Garrett Rally ,if it had not been for Covid.
As soon as it is safe, we will though, so keep an eye out for the news page.
By now, the name is new, some of the team members are new, but what still remains, is the combined passion for hunting treasure together.
