Richard Wernex (Dick) passed away losing a battle with cancer. Dick, until the last several years was a long time member of Bedrock Prospectors.
I don’t know for sure but I think he may have been one of the founders of the club, if not he joined shortly there after.
He was at one time a board member and claims chairman and a very active member. He was one of the testers when we picked up our first claim at Blewett (Oro Fino).
He will be missed RIP Dick. Our prayers go out to His Wife and family.
Alert, Point sheets for the Metal Detector Hunt Must be in by the 8th.
Get the point sheets to Jack Ragusa on or before the 8th. You can turn in sheets at the Board meeting on the 5th.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES NO POINTS WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THE BREAKFAST ON THE 9TH. The 8 people winning Detectors will be notified by phone.

2013 Bedrock Prospectors Treasure Hunt
JUDGES CHOICE TARGETS FOR THE BIG TREASURE HUNT...
The Big Treasure Hunt's judges are Richard Holcomb, Mike Zeka, Gary Simmons, Gene Tuckston, Glen Simmons, Gene Felisiano, Jack Ragusa and Patty Irish.
The judge’s choice targets are spark plugs, hair barrettes, a gear of any type, ball point pens, pet license or tag, tweezers, horse shoes and the last item is a bell of any size or shape. Each target is worth 25 points and you may have as many as you can find. A general consensus of participants have agreed that military medals, pins, awards, rank and service medals are to be considered as costume jewelry since we did not list them as an individual target. So like I said, keep all items of interest just in case we have to modify classification to any certain targets in the future.
Bedrock Prospectors 2013 Treasure Hunt

The Index Claim has been sold as of October 31, 2012 to the Washington Prospectors Mining Assn.
The Bedrock Prospectors Club was organized by men and women interested in small scale mining and prospecting for
gold and other precious minerals and gems.
The Bedrock Prospectors Club has also been the predominent Northwest club involved with organizing some of the most important mining rallies in recent years.
The Bedrock Prospectors Club is involved in many ways, including lobbying, to preserve our rights to mining, as granted by the "Mining Act of 1872".
Bedrock Prospectors Club is a recognized 501(c) organization.
Meetings are held the third Monday of each month from 7:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
We meet at the Puyallup Masonic Hall at 1005 West Pioneer, in Puyallup, WA.
We have a guest speaker or program each month,
with classes on panning, dredging, how to do it, and where to go.
There is a Monthly Name Drawing, but sorry, you must be present to win.
It will grow by $10 a month until it is Won.
There is a Prize Raffle at every monthly meeting. A Gold Nugget is raffled off
along with two other great prizes. Tickets are 1 for $1 or 6 for $5.
Prize donations gladly accepted. Good Luck.
Don't forget to give to the Family Christmas Fund at the
door throughout the year.
The Membership Chairman is available at every meeting to help with questions
and promote Your Club. Members are always sharing tips and techniques; their
favored equipment practices plus shows and, need I say, tells?
Open Board Meetings are held on the First Tuesday of Every Month.
Outings Outings Photo Album
Several outings are planned throughout the year.
Members can enjoy Metal Detecting and Rockhounding activities.

famous "Pot Lucks", and Tailgate Parties!
And always, all gold you find as a member on club claims, you keep!
Let's have some fun.
More about us
Bedrock Propectors are families having fun with a common interest.
We prospect for minerals, as well as the following:
- Enjoy Pot Luck Dinners at our Outings
- Camping trips at our claims, and elsewhere
- Hiking and Exploring
- Community Service
- Tell Stories and laugh, while learning from the experiences of others
- Host a great Christmas Party
To sum it all up
This is a group where all ages can come together and play. We bring our families, along with our
friends and pets. We watch nature in all its glory and enjoy laughing when nature rains on us.
When the flowers are in bloom and the deer bed down near camp, we sit by the fire telling stories of
past fun, and past storms. Oh, that's us, Pacific Northwest prospectors!
