There were 6 people who attended the Christmas party. The pictures are in the Photo Gallery.

At the Meeting

Since our President, Dick, was out of town and our Secretary, Ben, is in the hospital in Denver, and our Treasurer, Kim, is with him, we did not have a quorum for the meeting. We did, however, discuss the Christmas party and have a door prize drawing. Lester won the nugget. Congrats!

Our Christmas party will be Dec. 11
It will be pot luck. Bring your own place setting and drink.
Set up will be 5:30 and dinner at 6:00.
There will be a gift exchange. A man for a man and a gal for a gal and you can say who the gift is from.
Price limit is $15.

This is a great video on how to process gold concentrates.
