At Dome Rock area in Quartzsite, AZ... This will be held the 22nd to 24th of March 2019 and all are welcome. Mike posted for me in Outings section and this is a bring your own meat to grill affair with each of us bringing another dish to pass. We will have a huge grill that Roger D built many years ago for this purpose and will have a nice hot charcoal fire ready to cook on Saturday evening.

BRING some firewood if you can or a bac of charcoal for Sat.

Dish to pass

RV access is easy here

we will be on a GPAA claim 

Joining the Quartzsite gold club is a good idea

can get VERY WINDY! 

both GPAA and Roadrunner claims in the area.

Maps will be posted as we move along and hope to see you all there.

Thanks we’ll be there.    Hoping my Equinox 800 will be sufficient.

Hogstir ... if you plan to use the Nox 800 I would suggest using the small 6" coil as it will be much more sensitive than the larger stock coil.

I bought one of 6” coils too. If my wife has fun at this outing and enjoys detecting I may get her a Gold Monster.

Hi Bill and Tammy and others.
We plan on coming over from CA! Will bring some pear wood to burn, as well as something more chewable!
Thank you so much for putting this together!

I am actually going to make it to this one. May sound like a stupid question, BUT....do you have to be a member of the GPAA, Roadrunners, or QMDC to attend?

Which club/clubs would you recommend that would give me the most opportunity in the areas around Quartzsite? Or any other areas in western Arizona?

Nugget Wranglers club might be a good choice too. They've got two claims nearby and at $10 a year they are the budget alternative.

Are they still active? was a member for years, but they kind of went under the radar....

Yeah they are still around Bill. When they blew all their claims a few years back they kept going as a social club but they now have claims. Their Big Wash claim is worth the $10 membership fee in my opinion.

All that being said there is quite a bit of open producing areas this season. I just finished mapping the claims last month.

Pretty sure the SWPMA  out of southern California also have claims in the immediate area. La Cholla And Oro Fino Placers

When I get around to retiring, events like this sound like a great time.

Some day I hope to join you . . .

All  the best,

We will be here.... 

West bound on I-10 from Quartzsite, exit I-10 on exit 11. At stop sign turn left under interstate and left again staying right on Dome Rock Road. When you turn onto Dome Rock Road travel East Toward Quartzsite for 1.4 miles to the SW corner of the GPAA Flat Foot claim, coordinates; 33° 38' 36.416"N 114° 18' 12.440"W. 

You do not need to be a member to camp, but must be a member to prospect. I will have a few membership with me just in case....

Hey Bill ... Have you found a way to mount your two flags on the new rig? That's always a good way for folks to find us.
