Message from the President:

We had a great year last year!

We were able to acquire a new 40 acre claim that is producing some nice gold, we concentrated on growing our club and picked up around 40 new members on our roster, and we plain just had fun!

I look forward to 2017 and all it holds for our club. We have our annual Gold Show coming up in 2 months, we still need volunteers to take some shifts and help out.

There are a few surprises in store this summer as things warm up and we get out to enjoy turning some dirt. March is our month that dues are due. $12 per family per year. You can take care of this by mail to our PMB box or at the next meeting. Keep in mind you need to be a member in good standing to use the claims.

Till next time, may all you find be nuggets. ~ Gary Sturgill

 

 

All,

At the last meeting we made copies of Gary's handwritten list of the 2017 outings, and lots of folks took them home.

Two dates on that handwritten list were incorrect, including March (and August).

The next outing is March 18th, not this coming Saturday March 11th. Our outings for 2017 take place on the Saturday following our general meetings. The outing schedule in the February newsletter is correct, but I'm not sure everyone noticed, so I'm sending this email. Also, I plan to go to the March outing at Nesika. My wife has to work, so I'm open to having one or two folks ride with me and maybe help with gas money, or I can ride with you and help with gas money. Just let me know if you're interested.

There's plenty of good gold to be had in those beach sands. And, our next general meeting is Monday, March 13th, so I hope to see YOU there! I'll send a reminder out in a couple days as well. Until then may there always be a flash in you pan.

Senate Bill 838

ANTI MINING BILL

CLICK to read

YOU should direct your comments to the Senate Environment and Natural Resource Committee,

because SB 401 and SB 838 is set for a hearing April 15 at 3:00pm

The first name below is the Senate President, he is not on the committee, but we should flood his office too, for letting an unconstitutional Bill go to committee. I understand that he can pull the Bills back from the committee he has sent these to. We need to let him know of our displeasure as well. Guy.
