Membership know-how ranges from the beginner/novice to the dedicated experienced miner. The club sponsors mining equipment and gold nugget raffles at each monthly meeting and there is always plenty of coffee, tea, and cookies for all. A separate drawing is held each meeting with active member numbers. Drawing is for $10.00 in "Pappy Bucks" which may be used toward membership renewal, club store purchases or monthly raffle tickets.
Films on prospecting and related subjects are featured at our meetings, political postures and government regulations are discussed as they pertain to our concerns, and the year-end potluck is always well attended.
A monthly newsletter is mailed to all members. It summarizes the last month's meeting, current business, prospecting tips, equipment for sale, political action information, and etc. If a member has something to say to the rest of the members, well here's the place.
Guests are always welcome, and if they leave us their address, we are always happy to send them a complimentary newsletter for the following 3 months.
The club has a few fund raisers (see events), and assists in a number of charity events during the year. A one time fee of $10.00, (participation is optional) entitles a member to check out books and video tapes from our mining library for 30 days.
Membership dues are $45.00 for a single person (over 18) and family children under 18 years of age. Initial membership packet includes membership cards, Club Handbook and Club Ribbons. (add $3.00 if we need to mail the membership packet to you). Our monthly club meetings are normally held on the first Thursday of each month a 7pm.
We hope you will enjoy learning more about the club and will consider supporting our organization thus helping to preserve our hobby, small scale mining, for many years to come.
