Website and Member Database Migration 

The Roadrunner Prospectors’ Club was founded in March of 1983 with 10 members, and with a total of 2 claims! In 2023 we have the same responsibilities as they did in 1983, but we now have approximately 1200 memberships, and over 270 claims. As you can imagine, managing the ever growing club has its challenges.

If you are reading this, then you are already seeing the big news!

The Roadrunner Prospectors' Club has modernized our website to bring our members new and awesome features... but it's more than that! We have an entirely new membership portal to manage our growing membership base. Some of the improvements include:

  • A new feature rich website.
  • A members only website that allows us to easily share club information like claim maps.
  • A new member database that will allow you to keep your own personal information up to date.
  • Married couples can now each have both of their e-mails in the system to stay updated.
  • See your membership dues progression, and pay your annual dues online.
  • An improved photo gallery.
  • A new member forum to have discussions with other members. Unlike Facebook, this is for members only so you can safely discuss claim information.
  • New forms that will allow you report claim problems you find on the claims so we can organize a reclamation event.
  • Volunteering has never been easier, because you can see upcoming volunteer events in your calendar and what types of volunteers are needed... then just sign up!
  • A dynamic calendar so you can always stay up to date and never miss an outing.

.... with more to come!!

The club is modernizing!

Miner of the Year!

The 2023 Miner of the Year is...
Karla Phillips!

    North Country Claims Maintenance and Marking has been conscientiously attended to by Karla Phillips. Karla's Crew include her husband Michael, George and Laura Johnson, Chuck & Sheryal Gentles, Jim Munson, Cody and Crystal Bennett. Honorable mention to Super Dog "Mosey"! Karla arranged for larger groups for road repairs and clearing including extensive chain saw work for obstructions and dangerous falling trees along Wolf Creek Claims Map 6 . 
    Crooks Canyon, Map 18 was more than problematic. 
    Here's Karla's description. "We climbed steep, thorny, slippery, brush clogged dangerous slopes dragging re-bar, pole and hammer. All of us fell at least once on the slopes and we all have tears from the thorns". Determination and success! Doing all this Karla discovered a need for additional boundary signs. Karla submitted a supply list to enable exact equipment to be assembled at the Roadrunner Office for efficiency on upcoming tasks. Her superior management skills made this all very doable. Everything Karla undertook was completed at 110%. 
    One last story, Karla even lassoed a RRPC sign tossed down a well. These are just a few examples of all the amazing work Karla has accomplished! Karla Phillips, Roadrunner Prospectors' Club is forever grateful for your efforts! 

    Miner of the Month!

    The February Miner of the Month is...
    George Johnson!

      George is an avid drywasher who has the Golden touch and keen instincts for choosing just the right spot to dig for gold.

      As a willing volunteer, George assisted with all the recent North Country reclamation projects, including climbing mountains to put in missing claim markers. George is always showing up on the Volunteer Lists. Sampling before a Backhoe Dig is a large task, and George is always up for putting in a full day to pick out the best areas.

      There is no "Stop" button for George! We appreciate you George and we love your better half Laura!
