Western States Prospecting Association Rye Patch outing/common dig

Recommended Posts

WSPA Members annual Rye Patch outing/common dig is being held starting the 24th of Oct. Please log on to our WSPA forum for the details.

The Rye Patch outing is a popular event with members, this year were serving a slow smoked whole pig, brisket and chicken BBQ feast!

This year marks another first with a common operation! A mechanized push with detecting and dry washing.

Our last outing we raised over $1000.00 via silent auction and raffle from donations. One of our members is a VA nurse and has identified a means of direct support of Veterans needs through the VA's Volunteer Services. We took the funds and purchased 200 units each of socks, underwear, T shirts, 60 pairs of deck shoes and 60 pairs of reading glasses from Wall Mart.

Wall Mart really stepped up and gave us nearly 40% off each item!

Over $1500.00 has ben donated by WSPA and its members directly to Charity this year!

If you'd like to become a part of WSPA please email an inquire to

Thank you,

Chris Porter

President WSPA

The vets are loving the new clothing, Chris.

Now that I have direct access to give stuff to vets in the VA Hospital (as you can imagine there is some red tape) it is going to be a breeze to get stuff to them....

Anyone else in different areas may want to consider donating things for the "Stand Down" they have every year for homeless vets....

Thanking all of WSPA on behalf of the vets here in Reno!

And anyone else who helps our vets...anywhere.... Unity!
