Tripp Trip 2013 Report

As usual, Lee & I met the club in front of the Gilsum store and led the club to the mine.
It had rained on and off the whole week before with high heat and humidity.
All that rain did help wash off many of the days good finds.
The days weather was nice with only a 5 minute shower all day.
Collecting was fairly steady with a few good finds of Aquamarine before lunch.
After lunch, and before the judging contest, many more good ones were found.
Many other good specimens of Schorl, Apatite, Garnet and Mica were also found.

The Winner of the Toveco Silver Shovel Award was Bill Shelton with a double Aqua
in matrix specimen.
