Another fun dig at Diamond Hill for the club. The members found a lot of nice material after the recent machine dig and everyone had a great time!

Friday seemed to be the big day. The weather threatened rain and storms for Saturday and Sunday so there weren't as many people as usual, which made it all the better for those who came. It didn't rain all weekend, the weather was perfect!

The first crystal of the weekend.

Nikki and a nice crystal.

Tommy found this huge crystal plate!
