January Meeting

posted Jan 13, 2018, 11:03 AM by Sam Angell


Just a friendly reminder of our upcoming Membership meeting on January 17th Wednesday Night at 7:00 PM.  THIS MEETING WILL BE AT THE VFW Hall 5320 E BELLEVUE.  The Hall is just one block north of Speedway and block and a half west of Craycroft Rd.

The January meeting is our election night, we have only one position with multiple nominations this year, it is the Vice-President position.  The two nominees are Clyde Carden (current VP) and Ken Summers (current 1 yr Board member).  We will have ballots available for members in good standing to vote (current GPAA members).

We currently do not have a guest speaker, so speak up if you have something to present or would like to discuss any specific issues.  We currently looking for someone to replace Ken Willits as our Guest Speaker coordinator.  Ken has done a great job over the last few years and would like to thank him for his efforts.

Planning for the Gold Show in February is progressing.  Some good news, we will have Gold Show tickets for sale at the January meetings well before the show in February.  If you are interested in volunteering for the show, I will have a sign-up list at this month’s meeting.  The volunteer tasks will be door monitors, raffle booth attendees, Gold Panning Assists, floaters, etc.  We will need volunteers all three days (Friday 2/16, set-day, Saturday and Sunday, the Show, and Sunday evening to help tear down).  We plan to use two shifts during the show in order for the people volunteering to enjoy a portion of the show as well.  More information to come in the next month.  At this time, there  are tentatively two Alaska trips given away at the show (one on Saturday and one on Sunday, subject to change)

If you have anyone interested in being a vendor at the GOLD Show, please contact me so that I can give you or e-mail them the vendor contracts and booth information.

Our monthly outing is scheduled for Saturday, January 20th at 8:00 AM.  We will be going to the Polaris claim.  We will meet at the Mile Post 7 turn off on Arivaca Rd.  The turnoff is .3 miles past the MP 7.

Please e-mail or call me if you have questions.
