Next Meeting – Oct 15th – DoubleD Claim

Next meeting is Oct 15th at the DoubleD Claim in Georgetown, OH.  If you need the address or directions please use the form at this link,  Contact Us and I will get the information to you ASAP.
There will be a Common Dig at this meeting, so bring your equipment or a shovel to feed someone else’s and everyone will split the cons.

Please Note, this meeting is a week earlier than normal due to the Indiana Gold Show.

Meetings start “promptly” at 11am and include a potluck and raffle.  Participation in either is totally optional but the food is usually very good and the raffle items are always outstanding.  Don’t forget, meetings are open to everyone, so if you are thinking about joining a prospecting club, come on out and and see what the OSPA has to offer.  Hope to see you there!
