We have a (temporary) workshop for members located in a club members building that is open on the 1st and 3rd Sunday’s between 2 and 5 pm by appointment only. There is a signup form on the website that you can use to reserve a space to work. It is a very limited space at this time, so sign up early in order to get a spot. We have several saws, a 24”, 10”, 8”, & 6” trim saw and 3 all diamond wheel genie grinders. Each new member that is interested will be instructed in the proper use of the equipment and must be able to demonstrate their proficiency before being turned loose on their own. Everyone that uses club equipment must sign a release form before using said equipment.
The LGMS website is a dynamic source for the club and makes communication with other club members very easy. First off, the Membership Directory (which is for members only) is a place to find contact information for every member of the club (unless they have opted out). You can go to the committees menu to see what committees there are and who is on them and you can go to the Interests menu to see who is into the same things that you are. Additionally, you can click a button and send an email to a certain Committee or Interest group, right from the website. Another great feature of the website is our Forums. When you post to a forum, every member of the club gets an email about your post and can reply as well. Have a question about a stone identification? Ask on the Stone Identification Forum, someone will probably know what it is and reply.
The club has a newsletter – ‘The Rockytier’ that is emailed to club members (or mailed if necessary) when one is published. The editor is always eager for things to publish, lapidary tips, field trip reports, rock hound jokes or poetry…
