There was a very good turnout for the Boise, Caldwell and Magic Valley clubs get together at Tony’s Rock Yard. It was sunny but very windy. There was lots of food and good company.

We all had a great time on our field trip to the Bruneau Woodpile. There were nine members that showed up. Weather was warm with a slight breeze. The next trip is June 29. We will be going to Challis, Id. This will be an overnight trip for those to wish to camp out. Check out the members only page for more information. Please fill out the form on that page if you intend on going. Hope to see you there. Pics from this trip to Bruneau are on the 2024 photo album.

Added two new pages to the website. This one and a forum. The forum is completely set up and ready for use. I am looking for a couple of people that would be willing to help as admins or moderators. Admins have full control of the forum and moderators have the power to remove and or ban members as well as posts. All posts must be approved prior to being published. Please let me know if you are interested in helping out with the forum. If anyone is interested in helping out with the website, let me know. I can teach you anything you need to know.

The 74th Rock and Gem show was a great success. Jon, the club treasurer, informed us that our profit this year was over nine thousand dollars. If you have any show related expenses, please get the receipts to Jon immediately. You have 30 days from the date of the receipt to get reimbursed. After the 30 days, all we can say is thank you for the donation. So, get those receipts turned in. Thank you to all that helped out.
