field trips/GTARMC show

Some of our rockhounds go on several trips each year to great rock and mineral hunting grounds! Some are as individuals or family groups, some as a group of rockhounds and sometimes with the whole club or with another club. These trips are fun for the whole family and are not only entertaining, but full of learning and collecting opportunities as well. Kevin Gauthier became our Field Trip Coordinator in 2019 and worked with a group of interested club members to put together several field trips. Planning for 2020 trips began at a special meeting for those interesting in helping, on January 21. See the newsletter for upcoming events and sign up at the meetings. Below are some pictures from some of the GTARMC's field trips from recent years.
Field Trips
A big part of being a rockhound is sharing our hobby and crafts with others! GTARMC members participate in numerous rock and mineral shows every year where they showcase their skills and help spread interest and knowledge about rocks, minerals and the lapidary arts.
GTARMC Rock and Mineral Show Our biggest event is the club show usually held the last weekend of September. In 2020, the show has been cancelled due to Coronavirus safety concerns. We are planning on a great show for 2021. Vendor booths, displays, and a young rockhound's area will be featured. Below are a few pictures from recent club shows.
The GTARMC is an active club, so make sure to check the calendar and the GTARMC newsletter for upcoming club meeting information, educational opportunities, field trips and shows!
