ROCKWOOD ROCKHOUND NEWS for OCTOBER 2001

October Meeting           

We hope to have a large turn-out for Dr. Fuller on October 20. He is a dynamic speaker who always has  fascinating things to tell us about his latest discoveries from the dig at Tell Tuneinir.

Congratulations to our members who won trophies for their Competitive Exhibits at the recent MWF Show at Queeny Park :

            Joan Schlichter for her Trophy #27, Educational I ( Petrified Wood)

            Barbara C Sky for her Trophy #32 Fossils (Mollusks)  

            Hank Schlichter received a  blue ribbon for his exhibit on Petrified Wood.

 

Field Trip
Weather permitting, we will go back to the gravel bar on Saturday, October 21.  The river was way down this summer.  Then we had rain, it flooded and is down  again so there should be some new material deposited.  Last time we found a plethora of agates, jasper, fossils, and even a couple of arrowheads.  Bob Morris will have more information for us at the October 20 meeting.
