General Meeting – January 13th (Click Here For More Information)

Our January 13th meeting will be a Zoom meeting at 7 pm.

Share your story with us. How did you get into rock hounding or lapidary arts?

What do you like to do? Do you collect rocks, minerals, or fossils, like to polish, cut opals, facet stones, another lapidary art, or in the club just for the field trips?

How did you hear about our club?

We have to switch to a Zoom meeting because of the King County Directive for Covid/Omnicron. All business, non-profits, and public meeting attendees must show proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test within 72 hours of the meeting. Unfortunately, the Board doesn’t know how to enforce this requirement.

Please check your email for the link to the meeting. It will be sent either Jan 10 or 11th.

  • From the Top of the Rock Pile …. by Kat Koch From the Top of the Rock Pile …. by Kat Koch Thanks to Zach Pratt’s efforts, our general meetings are on YouTube. We do have to work out the camera positioning for the entire meeting. Please give us a month or 2 to get things right. The club intends to make this YouTube Live Stream a permanent thing – so hang in there. Our show plans are well underway. Our show is sold out!  We need a load of volunteers for this event. I will have at the meeting

Meeting Announcements

  • Topic: Our member Zach Pratt belongs to the Black Diamond Historical Society. He will be giving a historical presentation on the Green River and what can be found along the river. Show ‘n Tell: Something you have collected from a river, stream, or beach.    

  • Please note we have changed the month and day of our annual picnic. We had to change the month because our show is in August this year. We changed the weekday in order to accommodate our members that attend religious services. Our potluck picnic and club auction are being held on Saturday, July 9th at the Lake Wildnerness Arboretum. Setup is at 11 am and lunch is at noon. We ask you to bring a main dish, side dish, rolls, drinks, or dessert for the potluck. If you are unable to bring a food item that’s ok too. We would rather have you join us than not see you at all! The Arboretum is kind enough to provide a beautiful shaded area with picnic tables. There is also plenty of free parking. This is a great opportunity to enjoy each other’s company and engage in some “rock talk.” At the auction, you can always pick up some great bargains. The Young Tumblers can spend the “Rock Bucks” that they have collected on auction items they would like. Everyone comes out a winner. These club auctions help cover the costs of running the club and to keep our dues low. If you would like to donate something to the auction we would really appreciate it.   Afterward, if it’s a warm day you can go swimming at Lake Wilderness, stroll through the beautiful park or take the kids to the play area.
