Meet up in Tucson

Posted by Greg Simmons  
Greg Simmons January 18, 2019 09:07PM
I'm going to Tucson for the first time this year. I'll be there from the 8th to the 15th. Is there a place to connect and hang out with fellow mindaters?
Jolyon & Katya Ralph January 18, 2019 10:39PM
We'll be having a meeting on the evening of Monday 11th Feb, but the venue hasn't yet been figured out! Any suggestions?
Greg Simmons January 20, 2019 05:35AM
Excellent! Would love to be there. I also saw something about needing some volunteers for an auction?
Herwig Pelckmans January 22, 2019 12:13PM
Monday Feb 11 is also the day of the Tsumeb Forum @ Elks Lodge (by invitation only).
Maybe we could ask Bruce if he is OK with it to have the Mindat meeting there as well?

Cheers, Herwig
MKA (Min.Soc.Antwerp), Belgium

We generally have the meeting in the evening, so after the Tsumeb Forum (which I'll also be attending)

The venue could probably work!

The 11th will be a show tear down day for me, so I will be unable to attend if that’s the date you choose.
Tony Albini January 26, 2019 04:00PM
Erin, I will be at some of the shows. Which show are you doing?
Erin Delventhal January 26, 2019 04:26PM
Tony, I’ll be set up at the Tucson New Mineral Show on W. Grant Road from the 5-11, and then then the Main TGMS Show the 14-17.
Tony Albini January 27, 2019 04:59PM
Erin, thanks for the response.
Jolyon & Katya Ralph February 09, 2019 03:53PM
The Mindat party will be held on WEDNESDAY 13th Feb 6pm-8pm at Ray Hill's Mineral Maniacs Mansion: 5325 E Lester Place, Tucson AZ.

Informal meetup no formal presentations or speeches, just a chance to meet me and other mindat people in a relaxed setting and chat/complain/ask whatever you wish! Light refreshments and hopefully no rain.

See you there.

Ray tells me I should ask people to 'bring a chair' because obviously we all bring chairs with us. But if by some reason you travel with your own furniture please bring.
Erin Delventhal February 10, 2019 11:32PM
Glad to know my decision to leave my camp chair in my vehicle will turn out to be useful.
Dean Allum February 11, 2019 04:07AM
Yeah Jolyon,
What type of barbarian are you not to carry either a shrubbery or a chair along with you on a quest.
Doug Daniels February 11, 2019 04:13AM
I know this isn't really the place for these questions, but.... in years past, at least one show-attendee has posted an ongoing report on the Tucson show. I don't see one so far this year (maybe no one has started to yet?). I would have started a separate thread asking about this, but I see no way to start one, and I can't seem to access the Mindat manual for help. No big rush for answers, I'll live. For those lucky enough to attend the show, enjoy; don't think I'll ever make it back out that way.

Thanks Wayne - I found nothing doing searches in articles or using various combinations of Tucson/2019.
