X- DANA SYSTEM OF MINERALOGY
by Robert Pedersen
The-Dana System of Mineralogy is a system where minerals are identifed, locations in the world, properties etc. of every know mineral.
One of our club members, Robert "Bob" Pedersen has taken the Dana system and updated it. He has added the new minerals each year since 1995, about 100 new minerals a year for the past 15 years and included them in an Excel file called X-Dana
He has given permission to put the file on our website for all to use and download.
This is a wonderful addition and he continues to add the new minerals yearly to X-Dana
You can open the file with Microsoft Excel or get a program from Open office.org

Field Trip Sign-up Procedures
Henceforth a sign-up sheet will be at the meetings. This allows the field trip leader the option to cancel a trip due to bad weather or lack of interest. The field trip leader will phone those members on to list if it is cancelled. Members not on the list can phone the field trip leader before the trip to verify it is still active.
