From Joe our Pres.:
(September Prospecting Outing Revealed:Hello all! I trust you are excited to attend another great outing because after a hot summer it's time to get back into the swing of things. (I hope you appreciated my attempt at metal detecting humor.) We will be camping at the Pilgrim Claim near Randsburg on September 28, 29 & 30. If you haven't been there before, the map is available on the club's website or you can meet up with any number of club members to follow them to the claim. Just inquire at the club meeting on the 21st if you need help. The Pilgrim Claim is easily accessible with any vehicle that still runs and it has plenty of space for RVs and tents. There will be a port-a-potty on site but if that is not enough luxury for you, Ridgecrest has motels about 20 minutes away. Martin has concocted an even grander 'coin hunt' than ever before so be sure not to be late to that event (see additional details in next topic). It is sure to be a crowd pleaser and the time will be announced.
The potluck will take place on Saturday evening at about 6pm and I will be smoking some of my world famous tri-tip to serve up at dinner. Bring whatever dish you think will be enjoyed, whether main, side or dessert. We have access to several club claims in the vicinity and I can tell you there is gold on all of them. So bring your favorite method of prospecting along and have at it. Just remember that if you are new or don't have equipment, that you should not be shy about asking to borrow. There is plenty of equipment floating around among various club members, so contact me if you need to borrow something and I will see if we can make it happen. Also remember that with September comes cooler weather... just not here! So plan accordingly because heat stroke is no joke. I know that this will be a fun outing so I hope to see a lot of you out there! Take care. Oh... and my phone number is in this addition of treasure news)
