Sunday Dig

The first 8 club members to respond to a last minute e-mail, had the opportunity for a fee dig Sunday. The "pit" was actually a reject pile from someone who shares our hobby. Plenty of surprises - slabs, cut, polished pieces - treasure hunt for the 8, and additional material collected for the club. It was a small area to dig, and some specimens were referenced to what fellow rockhound body part they were close to 😊

Prehnite - October 4th Program

Thanks Duane for the program tonight on Prehnite.

Program for November Meeting

No members have offered to provide the November program, so it will be a group effort. Bring a rock or hobby related item, and be prepared to speak about it for 2 minutes or more

Field Trip October 14th

Meet at 10:00am at the "Red Bridge" west of Keremeos. Cathedral Lakes turn off - follow road parallel to the highway - you can't miss the red bridge.

The trip will also include a visit to the sandbar where the Ashnola meets the Similkameen river. The club will supply hot dogs, buns and condiments for lunch.

There is a steep slope down to the second site - those with cars will need to park and walk, or ride with one of the 4x4 vehicles.

"Psychic Fair" October 28th - Cherry Lane Mall

As discussed at the meeting tonight - the club received this e-mail that may be of interest to a member.

I am the Events Coordinator at Cherry Lane. We are having a psychic fair on Saturday October 28th. The cost of a table is $25.00. Tables, chairs, tablecloths will be set up for you.

Would love it if you could join us for that day as your gemstones are a perfect fit for the event.

Thank you in advance. J
