February 2017 President’s Notes

Rockhounds,

The warmer months are rapidly approaching (if not already here). Time to get into our garages, closets and shops and make sure our tools and equipment are ready to go. Unfortunately AGMS continues to work without a Field Trip Chair. Any one is interested in coordinating these events, give me a call or email. One doesn’t have to be the leader, just coordinate. Thanks to Sue P. for letting us know about the San Antonio club’s trip to the valley quarry.

Mark your calendar for APRIL 8th. That is the date for our SWAP & SELL MEET. This is your opportunity to sell and swap your handiwork and items. Again, we will have indoor and outdoor spaces available.

  • To secure an outdoor hundred foot space contact James Mercier. the rental rate is $20.00 and includes 1-2 tables.
  • Also contact James Mercer for an indoor space. Indoor space is based upon an 8 foot table. The rental rate is $20.00 and includes one table, two chairs and access to electricity.

Availability is based upon first contact, first reserved.

On another note, James Mercier has stepped forward to serve as Gem Capers Show Chair. This very important job is in good hands following two great Chairs: Chip and Sue P. Other Chairs are still vacant and need someone to step forward and help AGMS. We are in need of a Building Chair. Someone to coordinate the daily and short term maintenance and repairs as needed at the club house. Again, give me a call or eMail and I’ll describe what’s the position is expected to do. As for most Chair positions these jobs are not relying upon one individual but rather the inclusion of the AGMS body.

Remember that the workshop is open on Wednesday nights and the third Saturday. I host the Saturday workshop. Stop by and we can visit about these Chairs vacancies and/or other AGMS’ needs.

Be safe.

Laird
