Monday – March 5th – Board & Show Committee Meeting

Just a reminder that our monthly Board Meeting/Show Committee meeting will be at:
Green River College – Student Union Bldg.
Combined Show Committee & Board Meeting @ 7:00 pm 
The object of holding our meeting at the Student Union is so everyone can see our show venue and also evaluate getting additional space. If everyone knows what the venue looks like, it will help us planning the show and also to make a future decision if we need additional space.
We need show volunteers so please seriously consider volunteering and attending the Show Committee meeting at 7:00 pm.
Hope to see everyone at this meeting.
NOTE: Next month our meetings will be held at our regular location of Wendy’s, Kent.

Presidents Message

  • From the Top of the Rock Pile .   .   .   .   . Planning for our Gem Show is well underway. I took on the position since no one volunteered to be the Show Coordinator. I am determined to keep our show from falling to the wayside because no one is interested in volunteering for the position. I give a lot of kudos to Mark Hohn for getting our show off the ground again in 2018. What Mark restarted is now a successful show every year and has grown year after year. Last year, Chris Vitellaro put together a great show

Meeting Announcements

  • Topic: Out-of-state rockhounding sites by Roger Danneman Oregon, Utah, Idaho, Montana, etc. – So many rockhounding places! We have a few members who have combined a road trip vacation and rockhounding that will collaborate on this. It’s interesting to see the variety of material from these areas. After this meeting, you may want to plan a road trip too! Show ‘n Tell: Show us something you have found or bought on a road trip.

  • April 11th – Rock Bingo (Spring Break) and Food Drive This meeting is our annual “Rock Bingo” night. It is held during spring break so our Young Tumblers and their friends can attend without worrying about school the next day. Each member is asked to bring 3 wrapped items for each person who intends to play Bingo. You can play up to 3 games in person, and every person goes home a winner. Please try to donate an item you would like to receive, not junk slabs and rocks. Let’s all plan to have a fun evening together. Guests are welcome, and we encourage our Young Tumblers to bring their friends. Food Drive – We are collecting food for the Kent Food again. Try to donate 1 item or more for every person playing Bingo.
