The Rock Show
The show is canceled for 2020 due the need for social distancing and the closure of venues in the era of Corona Virus.
Info for 2021: Saturday 10-6, Sunday 10-5. Admission is free. Pick up a door prize ticket as you enter. View some images from the 2019 show below.
Club members put together display cases to educate and amaze visitors to the show. The club runs various areas like the silent auction, kid’s spinning wheel, fluorescent mineral display, and “club sales”. The club sales area is where rocks are sold by the pound, or in trays marked with a price for anything in that tray. Commercial vendors of all things mineral (specimens, jewelry, tools, etc.) fill up the venue. A food truck is usually parked outside the venue.
A major purpose of the rock show is to raise money for the club’s annual donation of a scholarship to a geology student at Western Washington University. Raffle sales and a donation bucket go to fund this scholarship. The club cannot handle credit cards so bring cash. The commercial vendors make their own sales and most do handle credit cards.
