Club members who went on to be major people in the hobby. Lucy Bowen,  Betty Weeks, Bill Bosh, Allen Cannon all were members on the 70s Lucy and Betty were members until they died  Lucy was a top dealer in the US and was known for her expertise and her column in Western & Eastern magazine. Betty was an active member putting on several hunts before she moved to Portland area and was our first Lifetime member. She went on to be FMDAC President twice Bill worked for Garrett for several years and found a huge nugget in Australia  Allen was one of the best men's competition hunters in the NW and worked for Compass, Garrett, and Tesoro

I remember the hunt in 1976! Also remember Hardrock. Quite a guy! That was down at 9 mile by the dam. Thanks for posting this. Isn't that the picture I gave you?
