1.Jerry was the Speaker tonight and gave a presentation on Mt. St. Helen. When it erupted Jerry was in Washington about 90 miles away. We watched a video on the eruption and destruction that was caused. Jerry also had handouts and everyone got a small vial of St. Helen Ash.
2.Break and refreshments.
3.A vote was taken on the adoption of the new revised version of the Constitution and By-Laws. The ayes were unanimous and the new version will replace the old one on our Website.
4.Field Trips: We discussed the last field trip to Cook’s Mine and got a head count on who will be going on the Holbrook expedition. Ten people are planning on attending. We will meet at the Power House at 5:45AM. We should be in Holbrook about 10. We will stop at the Holbrook Gift Shop to some of what the area has to offer and take a bathroom break. We should be at the collection site about 10:30, and the owners are going to BBQ a lunch for us. Some are going to stay the night and take in the shops around town. 
5.We touched on the Labor Day campout at Bonito Campground in Sunset Crater Park. This is a beautiful campground with clean restrooms. They do not take reservations and do not have hookups.
This place has many attractions, such as the Pueblo Ruins, Lowell’s Observatory, the Lava Tubes to name a few. It is worth looking up Flagstaff to see what else they might have that would interest you. Grey Mountain will be the primary destination for Petrified wood, jasper, agates.
Then Sept 28 & 29 we will be going to Fallon Nv for Wonderstone. We will be discussing more about these two trips at the Aug Meeting.

Door Prizes: Minerva held the Door Prize drawings and we had 5 lucky winners.
There will be an auction after the Meeting, followed by the Show Meeting.
Aduourned: 8:10PM

Amanda & Joelle from BLM were our speakers in Aug. They brought with them a desert tortoise, Pokey, who was neither pokey nor bashful. He had the run of the place. Oreo, a Bull Snake who was very mellow, and a Mohave Green Rattlesnake. They made for a fun and interesting night. Hope to see them again.
