Presentation by Tom Toothman
Tom has traveled extensively collecting mineral specimens from all over the US and elsewhere. He has donated a large supply of what he has collected to the CCGMS after retiring and downsizing. These specimens have and will continue to show up at our club auctions.
Details of his upcoming presentation will posted shortly.
June 15, 2019 from 11:00am until 4:00 pm at the clubhouse
There will be no normal monthly meeting in June. Instead we will be holding our annual Picnic and Auction. This is always a fun event. The Club will supply the meat dishes, but you are asked to bring a side dish or desert.
As always we will hold our auction of tremendous mineral specimens, cutting material for the lapidaries in the group and miscellaneous other items. Usually these things go cheap. What a great opportunity. The club benefits from the revenue the auction produces and you benefit from the opportunity to get good stuff at excellent prices.
Hope to see you all there.
July Meeting Program. July 9, 2019
7 P.M. at the Clubhouse
Everything you always wanted to know about Geodes
Geodes are one of Nature’s Wonders. There is no thrill like the thrill of finding an otherwise ugly rock and opening it find a world of beautiful and fascinating mineralogy. Wayne Dodd, an amateur rockhound with a fascination with geodes, will provide a reasonably detailed view of what geodes are, how they form (theory), where they can be found and what kinds of minerals you might find in them. The presentation will include pictures of collecting sites and minerals that can be found. Come and check it out. You might become as fascinated as he is!!
