Just a friendly reminder of our upcoming Membership meeting on January 16th Wednesday Night at 7:00 PM.  Our meeting will be at the VFW Hall at 5320 E. Bellevue.


Everyone missed the SNOW outing between Christmas and New Year's.  It was cold, white, and fun.  We had 3 inches of snow Friday morning, followed by a brisk 15-degree morning on Saturday.

I want to thank all of you for coming to the Christmas dinner, I think everyone had a great time.

At this meeting, we will also be voting in all nominations for officer positions.  The open positions are President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, and the two positions for Three Board Members.   Nominated for President is David Steimle, for Vice-President is Ken Summers, Jan Carden for Treasurer, Secretary is still open, and the two Three Year Boards Members are Mike Wheeler and Gil Mireles.  Linda Hartman was originally nominated for treasurer, unfortunately, she had to withdraw due to family medical issues in California.  If there is anyone interested in the Secretary position, please contact me or nominate yourself at the January meeting.

We will start the sale of the tickets for the 1/4 oz. nugget this meeting with the drawing to be held at the April Common Dig.

This months outing will be on Saturday (1/19) at the Polaris claim and the meet time is now back to the 8 AM time.  We will meet at the Mile Post 7 turn off of Arivaca Rd.

In a bit of sad news, JR Smith informed me this evening that his mom, Beverly, is in another bout with her cancer and is in Hospice at TMC's Peppi's Hospice House, Rm 1011 near TMC Grant Rd/Wyatt (2715 N. Wyatt Dr).  If you can find time to visit her that would be great.
