LECTURE TITLE: "The Mechanics of Mineral Collecting"

Dave has been a mineral collector for 65 years.  In that time, he has seen drastic changes in the mineral collecting hobby.   This talk will cover the changes that have taken place in our hobby.  Dave intends to give a thorough review of these changes to help educate and enlighten all collectors. 

The review will start with a verbal presentation of explaining the changes, along with slides to illustrate some of the quality specimens that made up Dave's collection.  

This presentation will cover the characteristics that define a high quality mineral and, by following Dave's expertise, he will cover how they can be obtained at a reasonable cost.

Dave believes every level of collecting minerals is important.  He especially respects field collecting of minerals as these collectors bring new material to the hobby by extensive effort in the field.

Everyone is invited.  

Refreshments served.
