Keep the inspiration alive.
New over-restrictive regulations are threatening the rights of anyone to collect fossils and limiting research which has been mainly driven by discovories by amatures over the past 100 years. Please comment here: https://www.savefossilcollecting.org/

The club decided to extend the time that we would meet “early” to all meetings from October to March. This gives members from further away more daylight to drive in, at least on the way to the meeting. So starting this Tuesday, October 18th, we will start the meeting at 6 PM until after the rock show in March.
