Complaint and reply.
My name is Ralph Hunt and my wife Debbie and I own property out near Claim #28, in the Gold Basin. It has come to our attention that members of the Club have been out near the claims in the past couple of weeks and have trespassed on PRIVATE PROPERTY, including ours while we weren't there, metal detecting. It was also brought to our attention that these same members told our neighbor that any gold found on the PRIVATE PROPERTY belonged to the club (which of course is False).
We respectfully request that club members be reminded where the claims are and to avoid the private property as it is Illegal to prospect on these lands.
Also, it might be a good idea to have the Club re-establish the Marker signs as they are not easily recognizable.
Just an F.Y.I.
Thanks, Ralph and Debbie
Hello Mr. and Mrs Hunt,
Thanks for the email.
I will put a note about this on the news page of our web site,
check on the corner posts on Saturday when I'm out on claim 28,
talk to Al Adams (last year's pres) about it on Saturday afternoon and
bring it up at the next meeting on Feb. 4th.
I don't know what else I can do, people need to be responsible for their own actions.
You have every rite to have them charged with trespass if you need to.
Thanks again for letting us know of this problem.
Jim Birdsong (current pres)
