Help Needed with Our Rock and Gem Club Show

We are still looking for volunteers and exhibitors, along with some other stuff for our upcoming Tualatin Valley Rock and Gem Show March 11-13. Time is short, so jump on these please. Rose Jackson has given us the following wish list for help. Please contact Rose Jackson or use our contact form to let us know if you are interested.


There is still room for exhibitors. If you would like to exhibit at the Rock and Gem Show, please fill out the TVRGC DISPLAY Application and send it in as soon as possible.

Donate Prizes

We are looking for Raffle prizes. These are the prizes show attendees buy tickets to win at the end of the show. So far there is only one raffle prize. Please make sure these prizes are items people would want to buy tickets to win. They do not need to be rock and mineral related.

Door prizes are also needed. These are won by show attendees when numbers are called during the show and their tickets match the called numbers. They don’t need to be expensive but something a person would be happy to select and own.

Volunteer Time

For all of you that have already signed up I want to thank you. Your help is much appreciated. There are still places that need to be filled in so during set-up, if you will be able to volunteer additional time during the show, please stop in the lunch room area where the sign-up sheets will be and add your name to a task.

Club Member Sales

If anyone is interested in selling a few items – finished items only, no rough materials – at the members sales table please notify me before show set-up. I will need a count on how many people are selling. Currently I have 3 people signed up for sales. Please don’t come to the show expecting to sell without contacting me in advance. Space is limited!

How club member sales work.

  1. You have to mark all your items with some type of identification, price and include an inventory sheet listing your items for sale.
  2. You will be giving 10% of your sale to the club.
  3. All sales will be written on a receipt>
  4. Pay out is after the show at the next following meeting.

If you have any questions, please contact Rose Jackson or use our contact form.
