We have a very fun outing scheduled for Oct 15-17th. It's....... OCTOBERFEST! Hi-Desert Gold Diggers is a sponsor of this AMRA fund-raising event. As such, we obviously want to join in on the festivities. So tell your friends. Tell your family. And bring them with you! There'll be lots to do. Let's make our presence known - to each other and everyone else - wear your HDGD shirts and badges to the event. Come Friday (check-in 9am-6pm) and camp (dry) for the weekend, or come Saturday for a 1-day outing, but just be sure to come. Attending the event is free, but there are costs involved in some of the activities.
1) 8am SAT: You can prospect on numerous claims - all free of charge. Hit up our claims (Bull Frog and/or Hot Diggety), or the claims of the Route 66 Gold Miners, the Temecula Valley Prospectors, or the Outlaw Prospectors. Trips to the claims are at 8am Saturday, so arrive early and be prepared well in advance to join a caravan to the destination of your choice. (Be a responsible, prepared miner. Check your tires, have a jack and a good spare.) 2) 10am SAT: You won't want to miss out on the metal detector hunt ($25.00, payable up until the start of the hunt), sponsored by Minelab. The hunt begins at 10am, Saturday, and there will be great prizes, up to $1,000 worth! I hear Minelab will even have a Gold Monster 1000 you can see AND TRY. No, I don't know if they'll let you use one for the hunt, so be sure to bring yours. 3) 4pm SAT: Did you know AMRA Stands for American Mining Rights Association? And guess what they do? They fight FOR US! At 4pm Saturday, AMRA will update everyone on their current projects, letting us know what "fights" they currently have on their hands. For example, do you know about the "Walk 4 Water Rights"? I'm sure you will after the update. Octoberfest's final day is the Walk's first day (the kick-off)! 4) Saturday night is the Miner's BBQ dinner. Dinner tickets are $40 per person, must be purchased online by Oct. 6th, and include 10 raffle tickets. 5) Speaking of raffles...dig deep to increase your chances of winning some of the numerous great prizes. Prizes from sponsors like Keene, Roaring Camp Mining Company, and Henry (rifles), just to name a few! 6) Register your free attendance, and buy your Detector Hunt & Dinner tickets by clicking on this link: https://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/eventReg?oeidk=a07ei9rkltu5f7d213f&oseq=&c=&ch= AMRA fights on our behalf to protect not just our mining rights, but other rights as well. Without mining rights, our club wouldn’t exist.
