Hi Everyone:

I had sinus surgery last week so Iím still working on the March Newsletter. I should have it out by the end of the week. The Monthly General Membership meeting is tomorrow night March 14 at 7:00 p.m. The Board Meeting starts at 6 and the potluck begins around 6:30. Our Gold Prospecting outing is Saturday,March 19. We will be going to the beach at Whiskey Run. Weíll be meeting at the usual Dairy Queen in Winston at 8:00 a.m. It will be 59 degrees and a 39% chance of rain. I may not go. My arthritis is so bad I canít do any mining. If Gary has to work we may need someone to meet the folks and lead them although going down the night before and spending the night may not be a bad idea. It would give you more time to mine and less driving for one day.

Whiteís Electronics has come out with a waterproof version of their popular MXT Metal Detector called the MXSport. Gary is going to allow me to talk about it after the meeting. Iím really excited about all the features theyíve included.

This is the last month to pay your Membershipfees. Itís $12 per year.

Iíve attached an application. CLICK HERE

See you all there.

Thanks!

Senate Bill 838

ANTI MINING BILL

CLICK to read

YOU should direct your comments to the Senate Environment and Natural Resource Committee,

because SB 401 and SB 838 is set for a hearing April 15 at 3:00pm

The first name below is the Senate President, he is not on the committee, but we should flood his office too, for letting an unconstitutional Bill go to committee. I understand that he can pull the Bills back from the committee he has sent these to. We need to let him know of our displeasure as well. Guy.
