We have events every month throughout the year including group picnics, common digs and a booth the Annual Gold & Treasure Show. We also host several field classes throughout the year on various topics. See our calendar below for dates and times, and feel free to email us at for more information.
For the picnics in the desert, we host two, one in the spring and one in the fall. We have a few fun contests, including a metal detecting shoot, panning games and door prizes. For the grub, the club provides the meat and the members bring along the side dishes and desserts. Several of our members then step in and show us their other talents (ie. cooking). After lunch, the members go out to prospect the area and, if needed, get some advice and tips from the more seasoned members. After the prospecting, we get back together for a drawing of nuggets and any items that may have been donated. The picnics are always a great time for friends and fun!
For the common digs (aka outings) in the desert, we head out in a group to one of the GPAA claims. Typically, several members hold classes on various types of equipment, techniques and knowledge in prospecting. Be sure to bring your own lunch and plenty of water!
