We need everyone that wants a chapter to prospect with to show up for this very important meeting. Officers for the 2015 season will be elected. This has to happen at this meeting or the chapter will cease to be. The club meeting and elections will take place at the Farm Claim starting at 3:00 pm due to the sun going down and loosing light much earlier.
Please read all the bylaws pertaining to be an elected club officer. If you cannot fulfill these outlined duties please do not let yourself be elected. If you have any questions please ask.
I took a step back this year because I was getting burned out, and I do realize people lose interest in a hobby and life has a way of interfering with yearlong time commitments. However we are only talking 10 days out of a year to spend a day at the creek in fellowship.
If you’re an existing officer or someone else who want to be please post up and list the position you want to be nominated in. please use the thread in the forum to post in.This post is not intended to go after any one person or persons. This is simply a statement that we need to get the Chapter back in order and have all the resources in place so everyone can enjoy their time at the meeting.
If you are joining the GPAA or renewing you GPAA membership Please let them know to credit the Buchanan Chapter for membership points. This helps the club to purchase mining supplies for our raffles. Thanks.
We welcome you to our club site. We are based in the Northwest Georgia Area. Please feel free to look around; some areas are for SGMA members only. We are a private club mostly made up of GPAA members. To sign up please contact SGMA at; email@example.com or come join us at our monthly meeting.
We are the official Buchanan Chapter of the GPAA.
We meet monthly to spend the day prospecting for GOLD and that evening having a pot luck dinner where we tell lies about the nugget that got away. After dinner we discuss Club business and have our Club raffle. During the year we will have several common operations as well. Our members range in experience from just starting out to seasoned veterans.
We are a not for profit organization and charge no membership fees. Our operating cost come solely from Fund Raisers, donations, and raffle proceeds.
I just want to reaffirm for all the new and potential member’s one of the main guideline that we built this club around, and that is No Drama. I’m sure if you have been on the GPAA site very long then you have been exposed to a lot of the drama that takes place there. This kind of back and forth bickering hurts not only the person’s reputation but also the club reputation that they are associated with. So in short if you are into that kind of stuff please consider joining different club because frankly the SGMA will not tolerate it.
If you have a problem, issue, or suggestion please let us know about it and we will do our best to get it settled.
Be assured we will take any and all actions necessary to protect our club and it member’s reputation…
