OferAZ ... Expect a lot of fun! no really organized events as we are on State Trust Land ... we do have a pot luck supper Saturday night ... in the past starting approximately 4PM ... to which we ask you to contribute a side dish or desert. Bill S usually smokes a couple briskets and there is usually one or two others that do the same so the meat is covered. As for the rest of the time most will team up informally to travel out to the nearby gold fields. You can not hunt/prospect on the State Trust Land. My guess is we will offer a free group lesson/demonstration on the GM1000 and/or the Equinox 800 finding gold in the desert environment. What you bring is whatever you need to survive the 3 days(I suggest bringing more drinking water than you think you will drink!) ... camping gear, all other meals, prospecting gear, transportation(ATV, UTV etc) ... BTW you can walk a short distance to club claims(GPAA and Road Runner primarily) if you are a member. If you are new to prospecting or metal detecting in particular please feel free to ask us any and all questions ... there are NO dumb questions!
