Special Meeting Notice!


This is a special meeting notice to ALERT you that our monthly meeting date for the Rock-N-Gold Organization has been change for this month only. The Ruud Center will be closed for maintenance on our normal meeting date, 2nd Monday of each month.

Therefore, make note on your calendar for our meeting this coming

Monday, May 3rd @ 6 P.M.


I will open the Ruud Center door around 5:15 P.M. We will start setting up tables and chairs at 5:30 which we always appreciate your help doing. Come early, visit with fellow members and review what’s being donated for the Raffle Ticket drawing.


This will be our last meeting until fall, so be sure and come and catch up on everything that is happening. Just think…this may be a last meeting we are required to wear a face mask! Does this mean at our September meeting we will be able to say “I remember your face”.


Aside from normal business activities, Tom Edwards will provide a presentation on Crystal Quartz which should be very interesting. If you have an idea for other presentations, please let Tom know at: or phone him at: (260) 341-9565


For those that have been involved in our ‘claim over lay’, clarification will be provided. Do you know the difference between a Placer and lode claim?


Another reminder; our Rock Shop is open for your use with supervision and training on equipment to turn your stones/rocks into jewelry, window/table displays, etc. Refer to the website for contacts and phone numbers. Click on this LINK to review the website:

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. 

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.
