Ok, so I called and spoke with a park ranger at Oak Mountain. ...no gold panning in the park.....period! And as for metal detecting, only at the beach, and only in the morning. ...you also have to stop at the ranger office and let them know you are gonna be md. Well, guess I am gonna have to dig me up some dirt somewhere along the way up there. Will let you know how it turns out....Ronda

Yes. Your first born and an ounce of gold !  Just kidding,only an ounce of gold would be sufficient. Everything is moving in a good direction.

Ronda. So hard to understand why they would not let you pan,but its alright to dig holes with a md ? Maybe they are afraid of a gold rush in that area.

So anyone interested in getting together to do a little prospecting and getting to know each other. I am heading up to the Farm Claim in Buchanan GA on Friday until Monday. I know a few people from the SGMA GPAA club that is based there and takes care of the claim will be there so it is a good way to get to know other prospectors and hang out. I am going to camp on site.

Not sure why they won't allow panning. I figured if they allow panning it may lead to bigger equipment and interfere with the bikers and runners out there. I really don't know and he didn't say why, just no panning allowed.

So how is this coming along? We heard anything yet from GPAA? I know they have been busy as this is the group dig season for LDMA and a lot of the staff goes out to these.

Michael, I am still interested. Not a LDMA member so not sure if I will be going to the Loud Mine dig or Vein Mountain in October. I am interested and live in Milton if you want to try and see if we can get a few others together for this. There have got to be other Panhandle Prospectors out there.

Ok, I am still interested. How about anyone that is interested, contact me and I will see what we need to do. I think somewhere along the way, we lost the original starter of this stream and he was in contact with GPAA. I would love to have some local members that we can car pool together and do some outings. I like the Marion, NC area which I where Lucky Strike and Thermal City are. I here good things about Alabama Gold Camp and the Buchanan GA farm claim are always open to us. For those of us that are LDMA members we can bring guests with us. SO yes, I think we need a minimum of 8 people to start a Chapter but more is always better.

I am also still interested, I am going to call the office tomorrow to get the paperwork sent out. At the last outing at Loud Mountain I talked with Dominick Ricci and he gave me a lot of Info on how to set up a chapter. Once I get the paperwork we will need to set up a meeting place so we can all meet and get the ball rolling and get out there digging and get some gold.

Well Michael I nominate you to be the first president when we get as far as elections. I live in Milton, Where we meet I guess will depend on where everyone is. So depending on where exactly all the members are located. I know Jon that started the original string on this was in Defuniak Springs, and at least one other person that showed interest before was in Pensacola.

Hey guys and gals. Tim sent me a message and dragged me back kicking and screaming ( just kidding but i thought it sounded funny. The kicking and screaming part ) anyways i had a really bad case of " Got to go back to workitis " not my decision. But yes it would be nice to have a chapter closer to home.  The last time i counted there were 12 people fairly interested.
