    I co-ordinate the field trips for the Selkirk Rock and Mineral Club that meets in Trail, BC. Some of our members are interested in the quartz crystals on Horseshoe Mt. and I am wondering if it would be possible for them to join your trip on July 19. Jerry Novak took some of us there a few years ago. In view of the weather and fire danger will you still be having the trip? I note that you are meeting at the junction of Highways 20 and 21, presumably in Republic.

      The hike is on, the junction in question is the one to the East, Pine Grove Junction, not the one in Republic. There is a gas station/restuarant there.
