A club member, Tommy LeBeau, will present a program about the Blanchard Mine near Bingham, Socorro County, New Mexico.

He will have specimens and a photo presentation of some of the micro-minerals (assisted by Mike Pabst) to show.

The Blanchard Mine is open to collectors for a fee, so you might be inspired to travel to New Mexico.

Upcoming events/actions:

The club’s rock workshop will be open for members Saturday, August 19th from 9 AM to Noon. A second session for July will be held on Saturday, September 2nd, 2017 (same hours).

Field trips:

See the Field Trip Newsletter sent by the club secretary to members on June 23rd, 2017 for descriptions and all the details.

Looking Ahead:

The time is now!!

Start planning on making a display case for
the show in September at EXPO.

Last year we had quite a few displays, which the public thoroughly enjoyed, and we had a lot of help which made things go smoothly.

This is a lot of fun, and it is great to see our regular vendors at our Friday night dinner.

Sept 22, 23, 24 Mark your calendars and come help out!

If you’d like to present a program, please talk to an officer at a meeting

Anyone can sign up to bring snacks for a monthly meeting - just let the club secretary know in advance so we don’t have to deal with the problem of too many snacks!
