        So if you have ever wanted to learn how to find local Indiana gold
   or just try it out for the fun of it, and meet people that like getting outdoors
       then you really should drop by one of the local chapters and say "Hi".
  We here in the Southern Chapter will do our best to make you feel right at
  home and see to if you have some fun as will. If your from Northern or Central
            Indiana you cal always check out the other Chapters as well.
                                 But you should start with us.
           Gatesville is just a few miles outside of Nashville Indiana.
Salt Creek runs thru Gatesville and we can use about a mile or so of the
                   creek in each direction from the Country Store.

                  The thing about Gatesville is its easy to get into
           (you can drive right upto the creek and unload your gear)
       The waters slow and shallow with geodes for the kids to pickup.
If you are new to prospecting please check out one of Indiana's local clubs.
They are free to join and will be happy to help you out and get you started right.
You may also make some new friends along the way.
It really is more then putting dirt in a pan and shaking it around.
We have 2 clubs in Indiana right now and maybe more on the way.
