Come and join us for a fun night with drawings for gold, a raffle table, 50-50 drawing, and usually someone will speak about tools for finding gold.

NOTICE: THE CLUB IS MOVING MEETING LOCATION!

AUGUST MEETING WILL BE AT THE PONY VILLAGE MALL!

Please look for signs or a member flagging you down.

Please park on the West Side of the Mall which will put you between VA Clinic, Safeway and the Mall.

I will try to be there early enough to have a sign or two out! I think it's going to be a Great Move for the Club.

We are getting the space RENT FREE and just a few simple rules. Like entering and leaving the mall. After 8PM we will have to use the steel door to the WEST.

I will try to remember to explain everything at the meeting.

The club needs a large nugget, 4-8grams or larger, for a raffle prize at our Gold and Outdoor show.

If you have one you would like to donate, or sell, at a reduced price, contact Chris Long by e-mail!

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!

Single $25.00

Family $35.00

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:

Membership Application

WE NOW MEET AT PONY VILLAGE MALL

Park on the WEST side of the Mall between the VA Clinic, Safeway and the Mall.

2nd Thursday of each month at 7:00pm

Welcome to North Bend Prospectors, Inc., a family-oriented small miner's non-profit 501 C (3) corporation dedicated to the enjoyable, relaxing, and potentially profitable activities of rock hounding, metal detecting, gold prospecting and mineral hunting. Please look around our website and make yourself at home.
 
* Are you looking for a relaxing way to enjoy your leisure time? Well, Prospecting is not always relaxing, but enjoyable!  

* Do you enjoy the outdoors?
* Ever thought about trying your hand at gold, rock or mineral prospecting?
* Does creating new friendships and gathering with others who have the same interest as you sound appealing?
* Is sitting around a campfire during an evening with others after enjoying a scrumptious potluck meal sharing your days' mining experiences sound like something you'd like?
* How about the chance to win a nice gold nugget with the raffle tickets you're holding?

You've come to the right place! "But I've never tried prospecting before..." or "Not all my family members are interested in prospecting...". Not a problem. We have folks who have prospected for years who are more than happy to show you how. Whether you have a gold pan and want to know how "it works" or you've just bought a dredge and need some instruction on how to use it, we at NBPI are there to help. For those family members not really interested in prospecting but enjoy the outdoors there are other activities available during our outings such as cooking, hiking, fishing, bird watching, observing nature or just taking a nice snooze in the shade of a nice-smelling pine tree.
