Happy New Year from the State Director
« on: January 01, 2018, 08:15:58 AM »
Hello All,
  This year has some exciting potential on the way for us.  LDMA will be holding a Diggers expedition in Tennessee!  We have new leads for panning locations!  We have some new opportunities that have presented themselves for Community activities!  We have some a new direction we are following to try to reopen public lands to panning!  We have begun some serious research on partnerships that might yield some Class 2 prospecting opportunities!

  I want to stress in the past we have brought these opportunities forward with out sufficient cautions.  So I want to clearly state that NONE of these are Guaranteed to open any new land to us, but with so many leads, We may find something that has not been realized to date.  Most of these are fairly new, and a good deal of these will require a number of volunteer hours to make anything happen, IF anything Happens at all.

  So, what does this mean to us?  We will have more need of more volunteers than we've had in the past.  Members who are willing to step up and lead an event, or activity at an event.  If we continue with the few volunteers we've seen over the past two years it is unlikely that we will make any progress. WE NEED YOU TO VOLUNTEER.

  Regardless of your experience level, age, gender, mobility, etc, your volunteering could make these all happen.  We Need You, so We can continue to be the best Chapter in the Country!
