Calvin gave a report of the Denver Gold Show held the prior weekend. 8 volunteers went to help with the show. Our chapter will receive a percentage of the tickets for helping with the show. We will also receive chapter points for each of the volunteers. The show was sponsored by the Foothills Prospectors chapter. President Tina was very appreciative of the assistance provided by our chapter.
He also talked about upcoming events we are invited to participate.
Honorary lifetime memberships were presented to Deb Littlefield, one of the chapter founders, and RD Round.
Mr. Detector wants to have a swap meet at his business. It will be held May
Dick stated he helped a guy with some GPAA claims in the Leadville area. He also did a GPAA claim below the BOSS claim which is only accessible by foot. Shannon Poe with AMRA is going to meet with BLM to see about getting motorized access.
