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

Date: Monday, November 8th @ 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: 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.


Special Speaker: Mary Paladino, from the Las Vegas club will speak on rocks that are poisonous!


Important Notice: This is an important meeting for ALL Members to attend. November’s meeting is when we elect a new officers (4). We also reach out for volunteers for the rock shop, raffle ticket sales and activities committee. As of this writing, we don’t have anyone running for office and we need this to happen. Why, if 4-officers positions can’t be filled, we run the risk of losing our 501c3 tax exempt status and use of the Ruud Center without cost to the membership along with other items. Our By-Laws do require a minimum of these 4 positions or again, run the risk of dissolving the Rock-N-Gold Organization and I for one, would hate to see that happen! The current officers will lead you through the process of your duties and be there for any questions until you become totally comfortable, so don’t hesitate to raise your hand for nomination. As usual, we will be taking nominees from the floor the night of the meeting and voting on your new officers. Please, think seriously about coming out of your ‘comfort zone’ and contributing to the Rock-N-Gold as a candidate for office.



Vice President



A lot has changed over the last couple years; clubs merged, new accounts set up, By-Laws re-written which took a great team effort. I’m truly thankful for the rest of the board of directors and volunteers that have made our organization what it is today, a strong focused educational club/organization we can all say together ‘We are Rock-N-Gold’. It has been a sincerely pleasure to serve the organization the past 2 years as your President along with the aid of a great board of directors. This is an election month, so now is your chance to challenge yourself and support the Rock-N-Gold with your time and talents. We are all here to assist you, volunteer today!


As always…if you have questions or suggestions, feel free to email me at:

Rock-N-Gold Holiday Dinner

Mark your calendars for our Holiday party at Mountain Falls on December 13th, Monday evening. This is the same date as our regular meeting. FYI the event chef will be preparing our food which is separate from the restaurant chef.

Pam will be starting to collect your reservation money ($25/each) ahead of our November meeting so we don't have 50 people trying to pay at our meeting which would be crazy. If you can pay before the meeting it would be appreciated.

I have set aside some dates and times....if these dates don't fit in your schedule please let Pam know and she will accommodate you.

You must call, text or email that you will be coming on one of these dates or she will not show up.

Burger King-October 21, Thursday @ 12pm

Burger King-October 26, Tuesday @ 10am

Burger King-November 1, Monday @ 4:30pm

If you are not able to pay on these dates or at the November meeting don't worry as Pam will set up more dates after our meeting. Cost is $25 per person cash or check (Sorry, no BitCoin at this time). Optional; you can mail your check to Rock-N-Gold, PO Box 1056, Pahrump 89041. Checks should be made out to: Rock-N-Gold Organization.

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.
