Hey Kevin I got a few questions for you (or any Official GPAA source)
The east Coast has not seen any Claim addition Love in the 4+ years I have been a member. Last time I brought this to the attention to the powers that be I was talked into giving another year of membership because there were "big changes" coming including a Claim Search and tool kits for US...the paying members...to bring in more leased claims.
Whereas I really love the new Digital Claim listing/search feature on the web site the idea of paying for membership then having to do the foot work myself to find a place to dig left me feeling less than fresh. But hey- you guys fight all the legal crap so let's roll with it and see.
Is this "tool kit" been made yet? Do we have propaganda to print off and hand out? Is there a incentive list of just WHY someone who has property would allow us to occupy and dig? I guess I'm asking if there has been any progress on this and if not where can I find this info myself?
What does the GPAA require for a Leased Claim?
What does the GPAA pay for leasing?
What is expected of both parties?
I'm getting tired of waiting for The OFFICIAL Group to do something for the East Coast and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Give us the tools, Show us how to search them out and maybe we can be a Coast to Coast and not 90% West Coast Focused. Hell if I found some available land that shows promise I wouldn't mind buying it and leasing but I need something to work with.
