The Southern Indiana Chapter GPAA (Gold Prospectors) had there club meeting on the 7th and it was a good one. alot of people that have never prospected before turned up. More people in the creeks in Indiana is what we need. We tryed to talk some of them into coming to the rock club but will have to wait and see if they show up.

August Meet

The August meeting will be on the 2nd Saturday not the 3rd this month.

But it will be our first "Creek Walk" to look for rocks in Gatesville.

And we are hoping to talk Bill into doing some flint napping to show everyone how its done.... what do you say Bill?
