April 24th 2022 Field Trip To Fir Road by Pasco (Carnelian agate)

On April 24th 2022, we will be going to Fir Road by Pasco for Carnelian agate.  This is a new site for us.  I still need to do a check out.

The idea here is to make a full weekend trip into central WA, Saturday being spent at Saddle Mtn and then spending the night in either Yakima or the Tri Cities and then on Sunday making a stop along the Columbia River near Pasco.
I’ll provide more details at the beginning of April and if you only want to join us on Sunday, I’ll provide a time and meeting place.

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.
