3 ounces of GOLD NUGGETS

The drawing will take place on Friday afternoon . You do not need to be a member of our organization to participate. You are welcome to be at the drawing, but you do not need to be present to win.

LINKS OF INTEREST
We have a New President.
Many in Washington DC seem to be scared about what he is going to do. I realize some of the promises made may not happen. At least not right away. He will need our support and perhaps a few letters of encouragement as to what we as miners need to happen. We will also need to write our Congressmen and Senators, both State and in Washington DC.
Our membership is way down from a couple years ago. We need to ensure that we work at recruiting new members.
Membership dues are due!
If you're not a paid member by the April meeting your name will be removed from the newsletter mailing/email list.
It is very important that you take the time to write a letter to your Senator or Representative and let them know how you feel about all of the anti-mining bills that are being brought before them. It don't have to be elaborate. Just a few lines expressing your displeasure if they vote FOR instead of AGAINST these bills. Please don't use threats or vulgar language. Also be sure and write that you want your letter included in the public record.
Here is a list of your Senators and Representatives:
