April Newsletter 2016

Hello Everyone!
We are slowly getting into winter and for all of those who like to dig out their own gems and fossils you will be very happy about it getting cooler.
We have had one of the hottest spring and summers I can remember.
One of our members has taken advantage of the weather change has made his first trip fossicking by himself to Western Australia. It’s an advantage belonging to a club because it’s always possible to run into someone you know.
We just had our first Open Day for the year and it was very successful. Thank you to all of those who have participated because without you we wouldn’t be able to pull it off.
If you wish to participate and comment on any of our activities please come to our General Meeting on the first Saturday of the month. Members are invited for the General Meeting. Management will stay later for the management duties.
