We now have 21 signed up for all 3 days, so the rockhunt is definitely ON! Hunt will be for 4 days: Friday 4/19. Sat., 4/20, Sun. 4/21, and Mon. 4/22. For the $150, you can hunt any 3 out of the 4 days. This gives you a “day off” to go to the gem show without missing out on the rockhunting.
There are also several people signed up for just one day, and at least one who’s going all four days.
If you haven’t sent your deposit yet, make the check for half of the fee to Bryan Crumpton, and mail it to Teri Smith, 509 N. 8th Street, Alpine, TX 79830.
East Needle Peak hunts will be Wednesday, 4/17 and Thursday, 4/18. Cost is $40 per person Let me know in advance if you’re interested in going. The group will meet at the Antelope Lodge at 7 a.m. each day.
Ritchie Ranch hunts will be Monday 4/15, Tuesday, 4/16, and Tuesday 4/23. Cost is $5 per person, plus $1/lb for good rocks. Again, let me know in advance if you’re interested in going. The group will meet at the Antelope Lodge at 9 a.m. each day.
For the trips to East Needle Peak and the Ritchie Ranch, no deposit is required. You’ll just pay on the day of the trips. All the ranches accept cash and checks as payment.
The reason I need to know in advance for the hunts is twofold: If no one is interested, I’ll cancel the hunt, and if I don’t know you’re coming, I won’t wait for you if you’re a bit late.
Remember that Rollin’ Rock Club membership is required for all these hunts. Or you can be a member of an SCFMS club that considers my rockhunts “Official” hunts for their club.
