So, I think this is where we hung up last time. Not enough people to start a new chapter. It would be nice to get things rolling before spring so we could do a group outing in the spring.

I think we need to know how many are interested....pm each other or choose a group leader, get everyones contact info.....while we are waiting for feedback on paperwork. That way, if this fizzles out again, at least we have contacts for some outings......jmho...lol

I got the rules and regulations today and I am sitting down sunday to review all 26 pages. From I I gather after looking at it quickly we need 8 people to start have to compile a list of all people with their member number address etc;. We need to come up with a chapter name and place to have our first meeting. We have to give the home office 8 week s notice for said meeting. We are going to need some one a little bit more computer savy than me on this. I will post more after reading everything.

Looks like we have 8 or more. I will try and e-mail them all Jon and see if they are still interested. Once we have an idea of where everyone is, we can try and get a location to meet in mind. Maybe Crestview? would probably be about an hour for everyone so far.

Tim could you call Aley Aragon Chapters Coordinator at 951-699-4749 ext. 188 and ask her to e-mail to you the file on starting the new chapter in the panhandle then e-mail the file to those of us that are on this thread . That way we are all on the same playing field in setting this up, thanks.

I guess everybody will have an idea for a club name so this is the one I will toss into the ring, Rocks to Riches, get it Rocks=precious stones, Riches=precious metals. Also since it will be awhile before we meet I think I can get a meeting area at the American Legion in Pensacola. We have to keep in mind the 50 mile radius and the area it covers, would like to see some people from the Mobile Area that may be interested.

OK gang, My e-mail is tpleibel@gmail.com I do not think I need your membership number yet. But names, phone numbers and address's as well as e-mail outside of GPAA to enable quick contacts would help for now. We do want to get this rolling so we can have a chapter by March or so and get some outings planned before the weather turns. Those with Highbankers or dredges will be ready to go as soon as their wetsuits will keep them warm.

I also want to try to do some sniping for gold. That looks pretty interesting to me . I am so fired up about having a local chapter around here.

I e-mailed the 4 addresses I have the packet. I was not able to get the e-mail for the 4 other names Jon gave me here. But I think GPAA headquarters will have them. We will need to pick a central location to meet and a mailing address. I think Jon and Mike for Pres and VP or treasurer. I am more than willing to try one of the appointed positions like web master or even Outings coordinator. Jon if you have those e-mails still, maybe you can get a hold of them and see if they are still interested. Then I would suggest we get together, choose a name, The geographic name will be easy, Norhwest Florida, and fill out the bylaws to submit so we can get the 8 weeks running to a first meeting, maybe we can be official in time to kick off the season next year.

Well I hope everybody had a great thanksgiving, I am just waking up from my after turkey nap, wow that was a long nap. Since there are just a few of us now, maybe we should met someplace for coffee or a drink ,I am going to the American Legion today to find out about getting a regular meeting spot set up. I don't know how much lead-time we will need but I will find out and let you all know. I know we will get this set up before the season starts, just like I know we will find a lot of Gold.

I had a great thanksgiving !  As for the gold, all we need to do is dig it up and put it in our vials. I have not been prospecting or mining since May !

Yea, i had a great turkey day also. I think it is a good idea also to go ahead and meet up even if it is before the official meeting. I just ordered some pay dirt to try and learn how to pan.....lol......i am definitely a newbie here.
