Bob Jones of Rock and Gem magazine, Neil Larson who found the T-Rex dinosaur named Sue should be there. Richard Wade and his T-Rex will be speaking on the story of Astronomy. He is an excellent speaker and has and interactive and fun demonstration. Linda Clark will speak as Hard Luck Lin, one of the first woman miners in the California gold fields. She wrote the book "Hard Luck Lin". We will have a huge walk thru fluorescent tent with many colorful minerals. There will be a large rock sale from an estate donated to the club at inexpensive prices. There will be many exhibits to include gold as it is our Golden Anniversary.
