Hi everyone, It was great to see everyone at the Pomona Gold Show. Now that the show is over we have a big announcement regarding our upcoming Oktoberfest at the claim. This year's Oktoberfest will feature Kevin Hoagland and other GPAA folks. They will be coming out to conduct classes for all skill levels during the outing. Keven says He "may have at that time [Placer Pete's Oktoberfest] something special to share with everyone there, not a promise but it is a goal ..." The outing is again free to those who attend. Classes from metal detecting and Drywashing to Fine gold recovery and prospecting will be offered. You will also get a chance to "Walk the Claim" with the Claim owners. Always a great way to get the low down on the claim itself. To attend we request that you sign up through the www.Placerpetesgoldcamp.com web site and let us know you are coming. There is plenty of camping area and the roads to the claim is wide and and a bit bumpy but very navigable with a two wheel drive car or a large RV or trailer. The event will be held on October 7 - 9 at the Placer Pete Claim. Classes start at 10:30 Friday and continue through Sunday. Of course, you are are welcomed to just go out on your own and find some Placer Pete gold for yourself. Don't forget the Saturday Night Oktoberfest Pot Luck. We hope you can make it. Steve and Phil

I have been asked questions regarding the upcoming Oktoberfest outing at the Placer Pete Claim October 7th - 10th. Most seemed interested in what classes will be offered. Although a finalized list has not been completed at this time here is a good look at what we are currently planning:

Walk the claim with the owner
Introduction to Drywashing
Metal Detecting (Hosted by Kevin Hoagland)
Fine Gold Recovery
Prospect from home
How to sample
Basics on how to file a claim
(Others being considered)

There will also be a Saturday Potluck and Campfire

Come on out and enjoy the fun - use our website to sign up! There is no cost.

Thank you to all who have signed up for the event. It really helps us with our planning. The calendar of events for the 3 days is still being developed but I am able to offer this update. The GPAA’s Kevin Hoagland is the author of a bi-monthly article in the Gold Prospectors magazine named Where’s the Gold. We have asked Kevin to use Placer Pete as an area to conduct a Where’s the Gold session and he has agreed. You too can now be directly involved in a Where’s the Gold segment hosted by Kevin Hoagland on the Placer Pete’s Claim. All you need to do is to just show up for the Oktoberfest event and join Kevin on his hunt for gold on the Placer Pete Claim! We haven’t finalized the schedule yet. I will get that to all of the folks coming within the next few weeks. Please remember to sign up for the event through the web site, www.placerpetesgoldcamp.com to receive your invitation. Come on out and join Kevin in a Where’s the Gold adventure.
Hope to see you at the claim.
Steve and Phil

Hi Steven
I will check to make aure you are on our list for the upcoming Oktoberfest at the Placer Pete claim. First of all there is no water available at the claim. We are in the desert and it is a dry claim. You can camp anywhere you wish but it is recommended that in order to get to know other prospectors that camping in the general area as others will be beneficial. As far as equipment goes the best thing to do is to give me a call at 714-658-7972. I'll be glad to answer your questions. Hope to see you at the claim.

Exciting News
The Prospectors Club of Southern California (PCSC) has agreed to join the upcoming Octoberfest Event. On Saturday October 8th at 3:30 pm they will be conducting a Coin and Nugget Hunt. These are always fun and the metal detectorists can hunt in a seeded area for goodies. There may be a nominal donation requested to offset the hunt cost, see the PCSC folks at the event for more details. Just another great reason to join our placer Pete’s Octoberfest.
Make sure you have registered for the event at www.placerpetesgoldcamp.com
See you at the Claim

Hi everyone
We are getting close to the upcoming Placer Pete's Outing on October7th - 10th. Just wanted to pass along that if you have signed up for the event by September 6th you should have received a copy of the agenda and confirmation that we have you registered for the event. If not, well, we need your help. Some folks have asked to join the event but their email is not responding, or they didn't put their name in the signup form or haven't responded to direct emails from us with questions regarding their registration. If you believe you should be registered and some error has occurred between us please resend your your sign up request and we will get to you right away with your event agenda. Thanks for your help
Steve.
