The Loud Mine Outing got off to a thunderous start with gold, good people, good times... and a heavy Georgia rain shower and light show, but sunshine and bright smiles prevailed Friday.
The GPAA invites you to check out our Facebook fan page at www.facebook.com/GoldProspectors for photos and video of the event. We encourage you to "like" our fan page and add your comments. View the Loud Mine Outing Slide Show.
East Coast Outings Representatives Bill & June Cox were on hand to coordinate events and Camp Caretakers Jimmy and Barbara Braswell were there to welcome participants and, of course, run the camp with the help of Assistant Caretakers Joe and Nina Sankey,
Gold was found; Good times were had and stories were told.
While attndance was down from previous years, the smaller crowd made for a good time where participants got to know each other better.
More activities will continued throughout the weekend at the three- and five-day event, including the Treasure Hunt, children’s activities such s kickball and of course plenty of gold mining.
Crystal McConnel won a gold nugget in the duck race held Friday.
