WCGMC 2015 Field Trip Schedule
It will officially be fall/autumn when you are reading this. Leaves will be falling or about to, but snow is still a ways off so we can (and will) still collect. As you can see below there are local events every weekend in October (two trips, a club workshop, and a show in Rochester). Hope to see you at many of these events. As usual, you should always watch the website for adds and changes, or contact the listed trip leader or Bill Chapman, if you are uncertain whether you have the latest information. This month’s activities are in red.
Remember to attend a WCGMC field trip you must be a club member, or a member of an affiliated club if you do not live in our region. See membership reminder below
October 3 (Sat.) – A local fossil trip to Deep Run is planned for this day. Leader – Fred Haynes
Meet at Deep Run Beach parking lot at 9:00 AM. Some creek walking may be required.
October 10-11 (Sat.-Sun.) - Walworth Quarry Open House (Sat 7 AM - 2 PM, Sunday 7:00 -noon). Arrive early for safety talk. Wear long pants and boots. Bring safety glasses & hard hats (bike helmets OK for kids).
