Please write your Representative to support HR382 Preserve Land Freedom for Americans Act. This bill will limit Presidential ability to establish national monuments without state approval as we have recently seen happen.
If you are not receiving e-mail notices from the club for outings and other special events. Check your junk mailbox. Over time your e-mail account provider makes changes to their filter settings. If the sender is not in your address book they can get blocked out. If you don't provide the club with a current e-mail address where you want to receive these mailings. Please contact the club president with your address.
See note on stolen equipment below the calendar.

As with most events where meals are served it's important to RSVP the president so that he can adjust for the head count. Use the link above for his email.
Parking at future meetings:
"additional parking is available next door to the hall at the apartment complex. Please only park in the uncovered spaces. Anyone parking in the covered spaces will be ticketed and towed. The apartment manager has given permission for us to park in his parking lot as long as we don't abuse the privilege. There is also additional parking behind the hall in the small gravel lot."
I have been advised to send the following information to the clubs for
publication and look out for the following stolen prospecting equipment.

The webmaster is looking for someone that has the time to attend the meetings and outings. Their job would be to take photos or edit photos that someone else takes. Put a story together or at lest write captions for them so others will know what is going on.
Special Notice: I recently saw a segment on the local PBS network that included an appeal for volunteers for the McCaw School of Mines in Henderson. Back when the school opened and for several years after that. Our club members made up a significant portion of the volunteers at the school.
For those of you not familiar with the program there. You should follow the link to the school and see what it is about. If you are interested in gold prospecting and gold mining this is a perfect opportunity to learn about it. It's part time, it's panning demonstrations for kids, it's geology and history. That's many of the things we do on a regular basis. Since we have so many new members over the last few years, perhaps we haven't reminded everyone enough that we need more members to participate.
If you have some spare time, please check out the school program.
Fred is looking for volunteers for the McCaw School of mines. Contact him for further info.
The information that used to be below this point has been removed, it has become a bit outdated. Please check back later for postings related to dredging, prospecting and land access issues. The International California Mining Journal is always a good source for this issue.
