NOTE TO EVERYONE: The days are getting longer and the weather is getting better, so, if we have good weather for our meeting on April 17th, bring a stone or rock to cut on my rock saw (no smaller than walnut or larger than a softball). It doesn't matter what it is, even a yard rock. Let's cut it open and see what is inside. You'll be amazed. You can try your hand at cutting it yourself or we'll cut it for you. BUT, only if it is good weather....
Two main topics for the night - our recent field trip(s) and a proposed field trip to North Carolina
Our meeting will start around 7pm
6425 Abel St
Elkridge MD 21075
Our meetings are always free and you do not have to be a member to attend.
Our meetings are informal and we tend to discuss whatever anyone has brought with them to show as well as discussing local rockhounding areas.
Even though we usually plan to wrap-up around 9pm, most of us are usually still chatting at 10. It is amazing the amount of knowledge that we share with each other and the body of knowledge that we have as a group. All of our meetings have been great (even when only a few show up).
I do ask that you RSVP for our meeting, but... if you haven’t RSVP'd and would still like to come to the meeting – please do. The RSVP helps the meeting by showing others that we do have a group and that there will be a meeting that night. If you RSVP’d yes and can’t make it, that’s OK too (you can always change your RSVP at any time).
I hope that you will consider attending (newbie or old-hand). Our group has been meeting for over 4 years now. We have over 196 total members and we’ve maintained a 5 star rating for our meetings. I believe that you will enjoy yourself and we will enjoy your company too.
As always, everyone is invited to our meetings (including your non-Rockhound guests). I have videos from Cash and Treasures shows that cover some great rockhounding locations and I will bring out some of my "treasures".
I hope you can make it, we are very informal, don't forget to bring someting (rocks, fossils, yard rock, book, map, whatever) to discuss.
