Wednesday December 6th we held our monthly meeting and 88 people showed up. I presented a recap of last month’s activities, metal detecting, and our outing to our Freedom Claim. I then covered the updates on the Chuckwalla National Monument. Betty from AKAU slipped in during the meeting and I had her recap this year’s season in Nome and preview next year as well. We concluded with the end of the year special all gold and silver raffles, 10 gold nuggets and over 20 gold or silver table gifts. The draw for the quarterly prize which was an enhanced Felix Gold Bag and a bevy of silver coins.
