Field trips

Torrington. 8th - 16th Nov.
Attending: Mick, John & Sheila, John H, Maureen, Terry, Matt, Cheryl and friends Danny & Jenny. A good time was had by all who attended this trip - but it was not without issues. Most people encountered falls, sickness and car problems however the fossicking and fellowship was great. Some finds were Quartz Crystals, Topaz, Emeralds and a Wolframite Crystal was found by John Hogbin. Finds were down on previous years meaning that we need to investigate and locate further deposits for future visits. This will be done by a group of club members sometime soon. Video footage of the trip was recorded by John  Hogbin and the ’movie’ will be viewed at one of our Educational Sessions in the New Year. Several collections were viewed and some purchases were made. Some members including some of the old hands found the trip very tiring with the heat and heavy digging taking its toll. Mick
