Change of Venue for the April Metal Detecting Outing
After careful consideration and suggestions from members familiar with the “Big Dog Claim,” the site of the April Detecting Outing has been changed. The claim currently has heavy vegetation that would limit access and not be conducive to good metal detecting for more than a couple of detectorists.
The new location of the April Outing will be Red Bluff High School, 1260 Union Street, Red Bluff, 9:00 a.m., Saturday, April 28th.
