***** Show Donations for Silent Auction and Door Prizes *****
We have a start on the Donations that will be used in the Show as items to be auctioned off in the Silent Auction, or for use as Door Prizes. We can use slabs, cabs, or specimens. If your donation requires identifying, please attach a tag stating what it is and approximate value. Does not necessarily need to be rock related. If you work with wood, glass, clay, leather, feathers, metal, beads, chainmaille- we would love to have something from you. A Business Card can be included with the items. It takes all of our Members to make this Show a success. Thanks.
Minutes of the General Meeting Feb 12, 2019
Call to Order: 6:30 Pledge of Allegiance: Led by Sargent-of-Arms Danny Schacht Treasurer Report:Given by Treasurer John Bowen
Membership: As Aleta was not here for report we recognized guests.
Activity:The Club has purchased a Celestron Digital Microscope for examining some of the minerals and rocks that we have collected on Field Trips. This Microscope shows the specimen on the TV screen so that everyone can see what is being examined. Tonight we looked at some of the rocks from the Golden Shores and Castle Mtn Trips. We also looked at some other rocks that Members had with them. Fire Agate was particularly beautiful under the microscope. We will be using this microscope on a regular basis at the Meetings.
We are also going to use this microscope at the Show in the Children’s Booth so that the younger crowd can examine rocks and minerals that the Club will supply.
Break: We celebrated Feb Birthdays for Debora and Jilly and this gave everyone a chance to meet guests and new Members. Field Trips: Touched on the Castle Mtn Trip and what was found there. Next trip will be to the Agate and Pastelite fields in the Burro Creek area. This trip is on Sun. Feb 17. We will meet at Bashas @ 7 AM. Be there a few minutes early to sign in and learn any last-minute info. It was also pointed out that our Club will still let guests go on our Field Trips as long as they understand that the Club insurance only extends to Members. Everyone is encouraged to read the information for survival under the Events box.
Door Prizes: Minerva was absent, Danny conducted this event for us. Announcement: There will be Auctions at the end of the Meetings again. Danny will continue to be the auctioneer for the Club.
