THE 2018/2019 SEASON KICKS OFF WITH STORIES, FUN AND A SPECIAL GUEST!
11/8/18 - Thanks to all the 109 people who came to the first meeting of the 2018/2019 season! Members shared some stories about their summer adventures and Town Manager Jim Ferguson took the time to join us and give members an update to all of the exciting things going on in Quartzsite this winter and even gave us a look into the future of the town with new businesses and projects slated for the near future!
IMPORTANT! - MEMBER HELP REQUESTED!
3/25/18 - It has been brought to our attention that someone has brought a small backhoe on to club claims AND "Member Claims" are being high-graded with metal detectors! Mechanized digging of any kind is against the law & also against club rules and will NOT be tolerated as it puts our exiting permits in jeopardy. It could get us into serious trouble with the BLM as well. If anyone has any information that can help us figure out who is doing this, it would be greatly appreciated! "Member Claim" jumping and using heavy equipment are strictly prohibited and are a quick way to get banned from the club FOREVER! For the 99.9% rest of you, thank you so much for a great season full of members working together and having a great time!
SEASON ENDED WITH FRIENDS, FUN AND FOOD AT OUR ANNUAL TWO-BIT HUNT AND PIZZA PARTY!
3/20/18 - Thanks to the nearly 200 people who showed up and/or participated in our annual two-bit hunt! The weather was perfect and a great time was had by all! We buried 12,000 quarters and gave away nearly $1000 worth of Gold/Silver and other token prizes. And that doesn't include the raffles! We ate through 54 1/2 Silly Al's pizzas in a matter of about 30 minutes and had a great time with fellow members! We know that many of you are getting ready to head home, so please travel safe and have a great summer! We'll see ya in the November!
MIDDLE CAMP AREA COORDINATE CHART NOW AVAILABLE!
3/11/18 - A downloadable and printable PDF is now available in the members only section that grids out coordinates for the Middle Camp Area club claims. Please be sure to read the paragraph on the top of the chart and stay off private claims that entirely surround all QMDC claims! Printed copies are also available at Miners Depot. Please have your membership card handy.
THE HIDDEN WALLET HAS BEEN FOUND!
3/4/2018 - The hidden wallet has been found! See us at the club meeting and learn how the clues led to its discovery!
NEW CLAIMS MARKED AND AVAILABLE TO MEMBERS!
2/19/2018 - Thanks to all of the 20+ volunteers who helped ups mark the new claims yesterday! All new claims are now well marked around the perimeter with intermediate markers made of plastic pipe that has been tipped with orange spray paint. PLEASE respect the mineral rights of adjacent claim owners by staying on club claims. This entire area is blanketed with claims and claim jumping will not be tolerated. Maps are available in the "Members Only" section of our website as well as printed copies at Miners Depot! We are already getting reports of nuggets, so HAPPY HUNTING!
