Growing Club, Larger Meeting Room

Next meeting Wednesday October 7th, 7:30pm at Leir House - different entrance and meeting room.
Facing the front of the building, entrance is on the right, lower level.

On assignment...........

I have been exploring Mineral Titles Online on behalf of the club, to see what is involved in getting a claim. So far, I have gone as far as setting up my online account, and preparing the application for individual free miner certificate. The fee for me is $25, for those over 65 years, it is free.

I haven't spent much time on it lately, but will update after I have spent more time on it.

LOCATION CHANGE - Field Trip September 13th

With the dry forest conditions, and exceptionally low river levels, the September 13th Club Field Trip has been changed to the Similkameen River.

Meeting place: Junction of Keremeos Bypass Road and Highway 3, West of Keremeos.  9:30am Gerry's Fruit Stand parking area.

"Gerry's Fruit Stand" is directly across the Highway from the Bypass Road, and should have enough parking for us to gather. At the meeting, we talked about Sanderson's Fruit Stand - my mistake- Sanderson's is one west of the bypass. I should have said Gerry's Fruit Stand.
9:30 am meet - Wagon Master Dennis will lead us from there.

Webcam shows bypass meeting highway in bottom left corner, and part of Gerry's sign on the left.
