    Hi everyone!

    I would be able to make the Kennedy Mine Tour on Nov. 14th, but not the 7th.

    Thanks for putting this together!

    I am interested as well.  14th looks best; 7th can work too.

    An historical note on the Kennedy tailing wheels: The San Francisco
    AIME?? Section sponsored the Pacific Southwest Minerals Conference (late
    70's or 1980 I don't remember the year) and we gave a part of the
    proceeds from the conference for restoring the the Kennedy tailing
    wheels.?? I was chairman of the conference that year and Bob Shoemaker
    and Al Taylor were on the planning committee.?? Bob, Al and I drove to
    Jackson to present the funds to the City of Jackson.?? I have a clipping
    from the Jackson news paper of the presentation, unfortunately it
    doesn't have the date on it or the amount of the check but it was around
    1980 and I believe the check amount was about $10,000.

    I thought that might be of some interest since SME (AIME) supported the
    restoration of the tailing wheels.?? Wish I could join the tour but my
    wife's health issues keep me close to home.?? Enjoy the tour.

    Cool story.
    Hopefully, we can strengthen the relationship with the Kennedy Mine.
    Doug, our tour guide, said he would appreciate building some relationships with real mining folk.
