Among other things, I want to decide if we are going to Mineral Hill this Saturday or next Saturday (Weather looks good for this Saturday).
We'll go over what to bring, what to wear, what to avoid, etc.
With all of the recent rain and snow, I expect that some new material should have surfaced, so we need to get in there before everyone else does.
I have a question, do we have any webmasters in our group. I've procurred the webname of minehounds.com (rockhounds interested in picking through mine tailings and opening our own mine). I'll need help with establishing the website and putting up content.
If you haven't RSVP'd for tonight's meeting, please consider coming anyway. It is a great evening and I will have my 16" rock saw working tonight (if you want anything cut open - bring it along).
This is a Meetup for Rockhounds, Rock & Mineral Collectors, Rock & Gem Artisans and Fossil Collectors to get together to discuss; Rock, Mineral, and Fossil Collecting Sites, Field Trips, Rock, Mineral, Fossil and handmade jewelry buying/selling/exchanges, and similar topics.
There are many Mineral and Rock Clubs/Societies in our area but there are no clubs dedicated to buying, selling and exchanging (we also do field trips and have discussion Meetups). If you are a Rock, Mineral or Fossil Newbie, you'll love this group. If you are a Rock, Mineral, Fossil enthusiast, please come and share your knowledge.
We'd like to see them.
Let's go get some.
Don't forget to check out our Photos page.
Our Meetup meetings are very informal. We have a great group of people with very varied interest. Some are newbies and some posses a vast knowledge base. We learn from each other. Our Meetup location has some equipment for cutting and polishing rocks as well as a stereoscope and mineral books. During the longer days of May-July we start our meetings outside amid a garden of semi-precious and ornate rocks.
Please check the calendar often - we post field trips there.
