Feb. 14th Presentation on Meteorites.

We will be having a short presentation on meteorites and we will see and touch several different types! We may learn about the classification of meteorites from our presenter Dick Pugh from the Cascadia Meteorite Laboratory at PSU. Bring your questions and your meteorites or your meteor – wrongs.

We are pleased to present Garret Romaine as our speaker for our first meeting in March on the 14th, after our Rock and Gem Show. He will be there to talk about his one of his newer rock hounding guide books, Gem Trails of Northern California. As you maybe excited to be planning for your summer trips, please bring your questions and maybe your note pads as I am sure there will be much to discuss. Garret can bring a wealth of rock hounding knowledge for everyone.

The pictures above are just a few of his books, he has also written Geology Lab for Kids, Rock Hounding Idaho and more.

 

Members and friends

A most memorable time was had by all at our annual Holiday Dinner. This Dinner was the last meeting until we start again with our next meeting on January 10th.

We had the best tasting food (loved that Turkey)! A wonderful Violin musician filled the air with her beautiful music. We adored the detail that went into the beautiful decorations. We enjoyed seeing our dear friends receive their awards! Our friends also had the most incredible luck winning raffle prizes and more raffle prizes, after more raffle prizes (how did they manage that?)

Congratulations went out as awards went to Bill and Linda Harvey, as well as Glen Woodward and Chris Weaver. They are all wonderful volunteers!
