Hello there, I thought I'd quickly insert a late notice regarding the annual event in Hobart, where people with an interest in minerals and fossils gather, to share stories and the rocky 'wares". The event is on this coming weekend (17th & 18th March) at the Grandstand Hall in the Hobart Showgrounds. Sat - 9-5pm and Sund. - 9- 4pm. There is an admission fee of $5 for adults/Children $1.

It is a great time to come and see not only Tasmanian minerals, but world-wide specimens too, including a healthy component of jewellery. There will be information regarding the various clubs in Tasmania and a number of stall-holders are from interstate, many of whom, collect their own specimens.

It's always a good opportunity to see such interesting and beautiful crystals, fossils and rock.......this show will be followed by a show in Devonport, on the next weekend. Details available at this weekends event.

We hope if you live in Tasmania, or are visiting the state, that you come and see the beautiful specimens on display, with much for sale

For further information, phone Rosemary (03) 6249 1408

ps. Parking: a public area is set aside across the highway, opposite the Grandstand Hall
