The rules for gold panning competition are quite easy; the winner is the one who finds all the hidden gold nuggets the fastest!
The competitors do not look as much gold as possible, but a certain number of hidden nuggets in the sand. Each competitor gets a bucket of sand where the jury has hidden 5 to 12 nuggets. The winner is the one who finds all nuggets the fastest. Of course, a lost nugget means a time penalty.
First-timers are also welcome to compete!
