GPAA CHAPTER 21 MINUTES/NEWSLETTER
JUNE 12, 2015

The meeting was called to order by President Mike Pung @ 7:30pm.  Officers present tonight were:

Ken Daley, Vice President; Treasurer Lester Allen;  Teresa Orosco sitting in for Secretary Karen Yancey; Tammy Daley, Photographer.  Twenty-four (24) members signed in tonight.

Mike opened the meeting with a welcome to six (6) new members. Janice and Tonya Mosig, if you remember, won the Gold Cube AND the Alaska trip at our Gold and Treasure Expo last October. Lucky gals they are.  They're a fun mother and daughter team from Healdton. If we had an award for the farthest traveled, it would have went to Don & Linda Stank from  Anza, California.  It was good to have John Hart of Noble & Don Sells all the way from Haysville, Ks with us tonight.

No reading of the minutes because the May meeting was cancelled due to storms.

Treasurer report was given by Lester Allen.  We're back in the black!

Old Business

Since we met last, there has been a Las Vegas & Denver gold show. The Denver show was smaller than expected, but the Banjo Pan was introduced.  After observing Paul's expertise with this new invention from the "minds of Gold Cube",  many prospectors had to have one.  After the show the group went to Clear Creek near Black Hawk and found a little gold.  The first day the weather was good, but day 2 it rained and so everyone went up the mountain to higher ground and played in the snow.  Next, back in Oklahoma, the WWATS Open Hunt was not flooded out over Memorial Day weekend like we thought.  Mike suggested we plan a outing to K-River in Antlers sometime in early October.  It's beautiful there in the fall.

New Business

June 19-21st the club is going to Cramerville. Don't try to Google this, because this is the name of Bert Cramer's place down on the Cimarron River. Plenty of places to camp.  Saturday night we will have a cook out. Everybody should bring a side dish and dessert to go with Burgers and Hot Dogs. Information and a map will be posted on our website.  www.goldprospectorsokc.com  This will be your last chance to purchase tickets for the PLP raffle July 16th before Lester sends them in. Twelve for $10.00. Proceeds go to help protect our rights to mine.  Lots of great prizes to win.

July 13-24th is when Mike is going to Lake Superior to camp and prospect a couple of weeks before his family reunion. He is staying at the Muskallonge Lake State Park lot #85.  The website is www.midnrreservations.com/Muskallonge to reserve your camping lot.  Be sure to contact Mike if you plan on going.

The members had a chance to see a new product called "Spin it Off".  It's a black sand separator that really helps get the most gold out of your sand.  Really works.

Mike has a Banjo Pan special right now.  They are regularly price @ $29.95, but for a limited time only you can purchase one for only $25.00 & $5.00 of the cost will go to our club. Available in green, blue & pink.  Can even be used to pan underwater. Go to Facebook to see a video produced by the Las Vegas chapter of Mike using the
Banjo Pan.  There will be some to buy @ the Cramerville outing if you missed your chance at Friday's meeting.

Meeting was adjourned @ 8:38pm
