CMS Oct 17th 2020 Field Trip: Crystal Mtn (Teanaway)

On Oct 17th 2020, we will be going to Crystal Mtn which is north of Ellensburg and part of the Teanaway formation.  Meet 9:45 AM at the Love’s Travel Stop in Ellensburg (I-90 exit 106 – 1512 Highway 97, Ellensburg), about 1 3/4 hour drive from Renton.  We’ll leave there at 10:00 and head north on Reecer Creek Rd.  This is a new site for the club and I’m still working out some details.

Agates, Jasper, Geodes, and Crystal – Bring digging and hard rock tools, buckets, and sturdy shoes. Appropriate clothing for weather, lunch, drinking water and snacks.  Bug spray.  This area was burned about 3 years ago so undergrowth is slight and hiking will be none to moderate.  The road however may require high clearance vehicles.  More on that as we get closer to the trip.

Presidents Message

  • From the top of the rock pile .  .  .  .  .  It seems the coronavirus has turned everyone’s world upside down. I know by now we all must be getting so bored and possibly lonely. I hope everyone has managed to find some toilet paper! Who ever knew it was such a precious commodity. It’s a good opportunity for us to do some rock polishing or lapidary work that we have been putting off because of lack of time. Remember you can also always write an article for the monthly Tumbler news bulletin. It can be about your hobby,

Meeting Announcements

  • The regular Thursday meeting and the Board meeting have been cancelled for April. I am hoping we all get to see each other in May. Everyone take care and stay healthy!

  • The Young Tumblers (youth members) have their own door prize drawing at each meeting. We encourage our Young Tumblers to participate in Show ‘n Tell each month. We also have a section of our monthly newsletter for them only to earn Rock Bucks. Rock Bucks can be spent on the monthly raffle or the club auctions we have throughout the year.
