Field Trip Report:

This was the best trip for the club at the Reel since we opened it two years ago. The members finally hit the pocket layer and scored big time. We now know where to concentrate some of our efforts in the future and I also have some information from a member showing me where all the previous finds have been made since the 70's. Our future digs should be quite productive!

I'll let the pics do the talking...
