Mike and I just returned from a 3 week trip to the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. It was quite an experience and nothing of what I had expected. I am quite excited that I was able to buy several mineral specimen’s (that we don’t usually find here in the Northwest) for the raffle at our Rock and Gem Show. In addition, courtesy of Herbert Shepard, I was able to obtain an Amethyst Cathedral for the drawing.
We really need volunteers for the Show so please contact Mark and commit to filling a position. It’s 6 ½ months away and we need volunteers now, not a few weeks before the show.
Our website, news bulletin, Keith’s monthly cartoons and an original article were submitted to the NFMS/AFMS contests. We will find out how well we did at the regional federation show in Yakima, April 27 – 29, 2018. If we place anywhere in the northwest federation contest then we will be in the running at the AFMS contest. The AFMS results are revealed at the AFMS show in North Carolina. It would be such a feather-in-our-club-hat if we were place in any of these regional contests. To place nationally is beyond words.
Remember to volunteer for our show!!!!!
