CHRISTMAS PARTY: December 2019

CLUB ELECTIONS: November 2019

The 2019 GSSN Christmas party is being held at The Elks Lodge in Boulder City, NV on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 @ 6:30 PM.  (See map below)  The dinner will be prepared by Ken, Richard, Eric and any other member who wishes to help.  As usual please click HERE to RSVP for the party.  To ensure we have enough food for everyone we are requesting that you RSVP on or before Wednesday, November 27, 2019 by clicking HERE.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone there.  Be prepared for some special raffles, great food and a good time.

The Gold Searchers of Southern Nevada has several pieces of prospecting equipment available to our members.  Because of the generosity of members, the Club equipment trailer is hauled out to our claims during most outings.  This equipment was purchased over the years for our members to use so let's use it.  Please see any Club officer if you would like to checkout a piece of equipment.

The November 2019 outing will take place at the Lost Change claim over the weekend of November 23rd and 24th.  During this outing we will be parking on the Empty Pockets claim.  Typically a few members will start showing up at the claim during the week leading up to the monthly outing.  The majority of the prospecting usually takes place on Saturday with most members packed up and headed home by Noon on Sunday.  If you will be attending this months outing please click HERE to RSVP.  


The Club sponsored potluck is being held on Saturday the 23rd at 4:00 pm (Nevada Time).  This month the club will be celebrating Thanksgiving a week early by providing a full Thanksgiving dinner feast.  This month will be a little different than usual.  The Club will be deep frying (3) turkeys to a golden brown and we are asking members who will be participating in the potluck to help by providing all the trimmings.  To make sure we don't end up with 100 pounds of mashed potatoes we are asking you to call our incoming Vice President - Ken Quick @ (702) 376-3628 to coordinate what is needed (Thank You Ken).  We are expecting quite a few people at this outing so please RSVP so we can ensure there is enough food to go around.  The Club sponsored breakfast will be held on Sunday the 24th at 9:00 am (Nevada Time).  Breakfast will consist of scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage.  If you will be attending this months outing please click HERE to RSVP.

Parking during some outings can be quite challenging so please park courteously.  Even though daytime temperatures are starting to come down, the weather can still be quite hot.  Please be sure to bring a chair and plenty of water.  As always there will be GSSN signs put up at all major turns to assist in getting to the claims.  If you need further claim directions please email for more information.

To ensure we have enough food to go around we are requesting that you RSVP on or before Monday, November 18, 2019 by clicking HERE.  Please indicate the number of guests attending and if you will be there for one or two days to help us get an accurate count.  We have had outings where we ran out of food in the past so please be sure to RSVP.  Due to non members prospecting on our claims, we will be enforcing the use of our Club placards.  Please make sure to display your placard in your vehicle when prospecting on any of our claims.  Please see our Membership Chairman, Eric Smith at any meeting or outing for a replacement placard if needed.
