WELCOME TO THE WSPA

What's Happening !!!


Recommended Posts

I hate to be the last to know whats happening, so I'm asking.   Whats Happening ?   I have been a WSPA member for several years and been on several club outings and enjoyed the claims and member  gatherings.         Can anyone tell me why I should pay my dues this year when,  it doesn't seem like the club has much to offer anymore ?    

Thanks,  Ron Judd

The great dream is to take the money collected over the years. And pick up a patented claim or two where we could camp all year,and keep pushing up nuggets with our bulldozer. 

Like a year round Moorecreek. 

Im guessing others have different dreams!  But I like mine!

 That is a very good question Ron.  When a member looks at the web site there doesn't appear to be any reason for anyone to join or renew. Over the years, I have brought in several new members and a lot of them ask me what is happening with the club. I keep saying, we are reorganizing and things will be better soon, but realistically I don't have a clue.

Several years ago the membership enrollment date was changed from January  1 thru  December 31st  to June 1 thru May 31st for numerous reasons. We are just a short time from renewal time again. Anyone that joins now or renews has to understand that dues are due again in June.  Before we picked up a few new members and a few members paid past due memberships I believe we had 18 paid members. As an incentive to keep the old paid members, the ones that paid past dues and attract new members, I would like to propose this:

 All paid memberships Old, Renewed and New would be valid until May 31st 2021

                                                    This would give the club time to get it's act together                                Norm

That is our great dream to have pat ground I am in conference with a land claims management company to help us with club claim filing, research of land availability, restrictions plans of operation and filing of said claims and maintaining this is not a club member and they will be paid so no conflict of interest. Once this is negotiated we will ask members to post areas of interest they may have . then we can get some more claims filed as of to day I have several already proved areas to donate to the club {40 years of research}and we have several areas in AZ I do not posting things till confirmed but this is 99 percent Then we can rebuild . We have a trailer to move to AZ which I plan to do soon As far as club outings I would like members to put some together and manage a few to see how that goes Hope that helps with your decision Any one can PM Me at any time with ideas efforts and suggestions

That's a great idea.

Norm,  I think you do have a clue, you addressed the problem very clearly and I like your suggestion to extend our membership through May 2021.     There are a lot of ideas floating around but the question still is.... What's Happening?  and will our memberships expire before it does.
