Treasure Valley Spring Outing 2019
« on: April 20, 2019, 09:45:45 PM »
All,

As I mentioned several times in previous meetings we have an upcoming outing at Treasure Valley in North Carolina scheduled for Memorial Day weekend. As usual I will provide exact details closer to time, but here is the basic info;

Start time: Friday afternoon 1:00 End time: Sunday afternoon 4:00 pm
Cost per mining adult: $75 for the weekend
Kids 12 and under and non-mining partners free (if you help with a dredge you count as a miner)

One important detail: as we did last Fall the Chapter is subsidizing this outing. We are putting $400 toward the total cost, to be divided equally between all of our Chapter attendees.

Space is limited and we already have 12 penciled in from a maximum of 20, so please let me know if you are interested and we will put you on the list.

Daryl,

Please post the names of the ones that already expressed interest.

Thanks,

Al

Al,

At the meeting we figured a total of 8 from our ground, Me, You +1, Bryan, Joe + 1, Sean and Smokey.

Then the Middle TN chapter had 4 to 5, will confirm a number from them Saturday. Ed +1, Ben +1 or 2. They will not share in the 400.00, they will pay full price, they have already agreed to that.

So with Cody +1.

That gives us a total of 14 to 15 estimated.

So we have 5 to 6 openings.

Cody,

I talked to Bill at Carolina Prospectors. The limit is 5, but the state likes it to stay under 4 inches.

Just an FYI we will be overnighting off of the property so we won?t nenes to take up camping space.  We plan to run our trommel during the day and leave around noon on Sunday.

We?ve had a change of plans.  Did not get the time off from work that I expected, so will not be able to attend this outing to Treasure Valley.  This frees up space for two people and I hope there is still enough time for the slot to be filled.

I apologize for the late notice, but work circumstances are sometimes out of my control.  Best of luck to every one who can attend.

Sincerely,

Joe Anderson

Nice bit of color for just poking around. How much of this gold did Evan find? Uh!
Glad to see Evan back on the creek.  :)
Enjoyed the video, thanks for sharing.

What was Byrons take?

Later Professor

Evan did most of the digging. Me old back isn't in shape yet. Gotta work up to it.

I haven't seen Bryon's clean up yet. Panning through it looked pretty good.
