President’s Message – June 2020 (Click Here for More Info)

From the Top of the Rock Pile . . . . . . .

I guess the biggest news since last May’s news bulletin is our Board voted to cancel our Gem Show in September.

The Board has already reserved the dates for our show next year, September 17-19, 2021. By then we should all know the changes that will be required to put on a public event. A gem show is unique as a good portion of our vendors, visitors and volunteers fall into the high risk range for this virus. We will have to be fully cognizant of this fact when planning our future shows.

Looking at Governor Inslee’s plan for reopening Washington we can not have a June meeting. Please check our CMS website often for the status on being able to resume meetings.

Our monthly field trips are continuing. Families or individuals that have quarantined together can carpool together. All others must travel individually. When searching for material families can search together but individuals must maintain a distance of 6 ft from each other.

Diamond Dan has given us permission to post or distribute May’s Mini Miner’s Monthly, a publication for young rock hounds. Please go to our website and download your copy. It has a lot of good activities for our Young Tumblers. It will help entertain all your bored children.

Looking forward to the day when we can resume our meetings as all need to “talk rock” with our club friends!

Presidents Message

  • From the Top of the Rock Pile …. by Kat Koch There will be no club meeting in November. I just read Gov. Inslee’s most recent memorandum and I really don’t think we are going to be able to hold any meetings for sometime yet. I know we are all anxious to see one another and engage in some good rock talk. Hopefully, that time isn’t too far off. In the meantime, as long as the weather holds up, please take advantage of our club field trips. Roger works so very hard to keep this monthly event going.
