Rock Party & Potluck – A Great Time!


Marty & Linda, our Field Trip Co-chairs, hosted 12 club members at their home in Paulden, this past weekend.  Marty generously invited us into his workshop & showed us how to use his equipment (with  help from Allan Mills).

We were each able to have a slab cut from larger rocks we brought and Marty provided each of us with a pre-cut & drawn cab slice for us to use to learn how to grind & polish – so each of us left with our very own finished cabochon.

The food was delicious – Marty & Linda provided burgers & dogs with everyone else contributing a side.  Roaming dust devils provided entertainment – particularly the one that went straight through Marty’s workshop. Fortunately we were all busy eating at the time.

A wonderful time it was & as we packed up to leave Marty & Linda were already planning to invite us all back.  So if you missed out this time, not to worry, there will be more Rock Parties to come.
