Reminder: Is the Rock-N-Gold meeting on your calendar?


Date: Monday, January 10th @ 18:00 (6 p.m.) doors open by 5:30. Come early, visit and review the raffle table as we get setup. We can always use an extra hand with setting up for the meeting if you are willing.


Where: Ruud Center, 150 NV-160, Pahrump, NV 89060 (Petrack Park), across from Home Depot.


Raffle Items: Not necessary but we appreciate donations. If possible, bring something to donate for the Raffle drawing. Raffled items help raise money for the club to do special things for the membership. Doesn’t have to be just rocks…use your imagination.


LOGO: Don’t forget to get your LOGO clothing ordered from one of our 2 vendors.


Volunteers: We are a volunteer organization (unpaid). Therefore, we need your help in various areas to support the Rock-N-Gold Organization. Please, volunteer just a couple hours of your time each month…that’s all we ask.


Rock Shop: We will have discussion on the ‘existence’ of the rock shop; maintain or close permanently! It doesn’t matter if you have lapidary experience or not, we will train you. We need volunteers to work just a couple hours a month with other members. It is very rewarding to see other members smile… with what they have created from a rock. Don’t sit back and expect someone else to do it!

4 of us arrived at the 40 acre Gold Claim at 09:30 and proceeded to locate and mark the 4 corners via GPS. After a lot of hiking, we zeroed in to the 5th GPS decimal and stuck our white posts. These markers cannot be seen from our parking area. Members should use the map for boundary guidance; an update will be provided soon. The very high wind gusts today made walking on rocky terrain difficult. One person fell with a face cut and me with 3 cactus thorns through the boot sole; ouch!  After one of the quads broke down, it had to be towed off the mountain. Lots of 4 legged friends watching us today.

Please mark your calendars each month for the following events:

 A group outing to the gold claim in the Johnnie area is on the second Saturday of each month, except during June, July, and August.

Our monthly meeting is held the second Monday of each month at 6:00 PM in the Bob Ruud Community Center, 150 Hwy. 160 at the intersection of Basin Ave. (left at the third stop light coming from Las Vegas).

Annual dues for membership in the new organization are $36.00 for a household membership which includes access to the placer gold mining claim in Johnnie, access to the club-owned gold prospecting and processing equipment, access to the Rock Shop and all rock trips. Members who do not want access to the claim or gold prospecting and processing equipment, but only to the Rock Shop and trips, pay $10.00 for an individual or $15.00 for a household membership annually. Dues are collected in January of each year.

Please bring to the meeting any suggestions you may have as to where you would like to go or do for a group outing. We are open to all suggestions.
