Things We Do

Mainly, our club is known for meetings and field trips with open attendence. We strive to provide good presentations, experts in attendence, auctions and door prizes in meetings, and a welcoming environment to everyone. We work with local mine owners for our opportunities to visit and take what we like (hence our rules and needing to be strict). Every year we have a Rocks and Minerals Show with a wide variety of local, national and international material from our many venders. If you have stuff you think would fit, feel free to reach out!

If you join our club and the email list then we can provide the Jaspilite, a publication for related local and club news. It isn't released on a regular schedule - it comes whenever its main author has time. Old releases will be offered on this site in the future.

On the website itself you can find when meetings and events are planned, which is updated whenever a vague idea is known to give a timeline or when we settle on details. Look around - we have a few more pages that might be of interest to you.

Membership is $10 a year - we welcome you at any time! Please reach out by email if you have any questions or concerns.
