Rockhounding weekend


#1

Good morning, This is a great weekend opportunity Rockhound total
immersion weekend August 7 & 8, 2004

Spend the whole weekend, working on rocks, talking about rocks
watching demonstrations of cutting, polishing, caving rocks and just
about anything else that has to do with rocks.

Location: At the Gazebo in Shell Lake Saskatchewan (about one hour
and 20 minutes north of Saskatoon)

What’s Happening? Rockhounds from all over will be demonstrating
their art for the entire weekend. Participants usually demonstrate
all day Saturday and until about 2:00 Sunday. At that time an
auction is held of donated materials to help offset the cost of the
building ($75.00). If not enough money is raised the fee is waived.

Types of demos: -Cabbing -Carving -Fossil
Preparation -Faceting -Flint Knapping -Wire Wrapping
-Silversmithing -Displays Who can Come: This event is open to the
public as well as anyone that has an interest in the hobby or would
just like to come and watch

Facilities: The Gazebo is a six-sided, open sided building with
plenty of electrical outlets. There are bathroom facilities as well
as showers as well as a camping area. We normally set up our
equipment Friday night and sleep right around the building in our
vehicles, good for late night story telling as well as security for
the equipment. Costs: Completely free to everyone although we
appreciate a donation to the auction to help offset costs We had an
absolute ball last year and hated to go home. If anyone needs more
info or would like to participate please contact me by email:
