this invite was provided by Nancy Terwilliger to me at the GPAA Summit. i'd inquired about Rye Patch based on some info i'd come across in the net regarding the Majuba Mountains, located at Rye Patch, which are noted for giving up nuggets.

personnally i'm excited about going to this, especially staying for the Sundday detecting.

Also, realize this is a pilot project with the State of Nevada. best behavior is expected, and appreciated.

have a good time at this, /s/ sourdough joe
