The Roadrunner Prospectors’ Club was founded in March of 1983 with 10 members, and with a total of 2 claims! In 2023 we have the same responsibilities as they did in 1983, but we now have approximately 1200 memberships, and over 270 claims. As you can imagine, managing the ever growing club has its challenges.
If you are reading this, then you are already seeing the big news!
The Roadrunner Prospectors' Club has modernized our website to bring our members new and awesome features... but it's more than that! We have an entirely new membership portal to manage our growing membership base. Some of the improvements include:
.... with more to come!!
The club is modernizing!
North Country Claims Maintenance and Marking has been conscientiously attended to by Karla Phillips. Karla's Crew include her husband Michael, George and Laura Johnson, Chuck & Sheryal Gentles, Jim Munson, Cody and Crystal Bennett. Honorable mention to Super Dog "Mosey"! Karla arranged for larger groups for road repairs and clearing including extensive chain saw work for obstructions and dangerous falling trees along Wolf Creek Claims Map 6 .
Crooks Canyon, Map 18 was more than problematic.
Here's Karla's description. "We climbed steep, thorny, slippery, brush clogged dangerous slopes dragging re-bar, pole and hammer. All of us fell at least once on the slopes and we all have tears from the thorns". Determination and success! Doing all this Karla discovered a need for additional boundary signs. Karla submitted a supply list to enable exact equipment to be assembled at the Roadrunner Office for efficiency on upcoming tasks. Her superior management skills made this all very doable. Everything Karla undertook was completed at 110%.
One last story, Karla even lassoed a RRPC sign tossed down a well. These are just a few examples of all the amazing work Karla has accomplished! Karla Phillips, Roadrunner Prospectors' Club is forever grateful for your efforts!
George is an avid drywasher who has the Golden touch and keen instincts for choosing just the right spot to dig for gold.
As a willing volunteer, George assisted with all the recent North Country reclamation projects, including climbing mountains to put in missing claim markers. George is always showing up on the Volunteer Lists. Sampling before a Backhoe Dig is a large task, and George is always up for putting in a full day to pick out the best areas.
There is no "Stop" button for George! We appreciate you George and we love your better half Laura!
