BC Rockhounder Online

Greg Carson has produced two online issues of the Rockhounder - available for BC Lapidary Members to download. Unless you have an extremely fast internet service, I would suggest you download the regular version, not the high resolution.

Greg wants contributions for the upcoming issues.

The Christmas Party - Good Food, Good Times, Good Friends

Thirty-one members and spouses gathered at the Barley Mill Pub on Saturday for our annual Christmas party and silent auction. An enjoyable time and great food. When I left, a patrol car saw me drive out of the parking lot, and pulled me over - I think he was a little disappointed that I don't drink alcohol.

Rest in Peace, John Fair

Our condolences go out to John's family. John lost his life on November 10th in a two vehicle crash east of Rock Creek. Boundary Creek Times reports that slippery road conditions were likely a contributing factor in the crash.

John was most generous at Rendezvous allowing access to his gold claim for field trips.
