Weekly Championship Gold Panning Speedpan

Article number: Detektor

Rules for WC competitions (Weekly Championships) in Ädelfors.
In these competitions, everyone can participate, but you use a so-called Speedpan, which is a specially built competition goldpan.
Each competitor receives a bucket with about 10 liters of gravel. In the gravel there are 5 - 10 gold grains. Exactly how many, is secret. Only the judge knows. There are the same number of grains in each bucket. 
The number of grains usually varies from heat to heat.
For the competitor, it is important to wash out all the gold grains as quickly as possible, peel them in a plastic tube, screw on the cap and shout "Done!". Timers note the time. The tube is then left to the judge who counts the grains.
For each missed grain, a penalty time of 3 minutes is added. (If a competitor finishes after 6 minutes and 16 seconds, but misses 2 grains, he or she gets a finish time of 3.16 + 2 X 3 = 9.16 minutes. The one who gets the fastest finish time wins.
