The March Rock Swap is fast approaching. We need a few people to help. With what you ask? For starters we need to inventory the club items in storage at Inland. We need to make a list of what is on each pallet and if needed to sort the items. Volunteers are needed to pick up rocks and other items the Friday before the swap, taking same to and from the swap. Also some people to tend the club tables at the swap. In so doing you have a chance to walk around and look at all the wonderful materials others have displayed that are up for sale or swap. So if you are tired of sitting in the house all day and want to get out give us a call. There are two tel #’s below or email us. We are looking at Friday March 13 for the inventory. Loading up for the sway on Friday March 27.


Hello Again To All:   I am having a few problems formatting the Crystal Gazer so again, I am forwarding an information email to all members.

Hopefully everyone knows that our new Club President is Christopher Pyszora and as well as being excited about being our new President, he will bring fresh ideas.

Until I am able to format the new Gazer, I will send emails to all.  If you have something you want to add, please email me.
