This is a great show to attend. To all who have never been it is worth going to. The museums mineral display is incredible. Went to the show for the first tima last year and had a blast, yopu could not ask for a better venue for a mineral show.

This is a must go to show. I look forward to it every year. It starts the year off on the right mineral foot. Looking forward to it this year.

Hi All,

Just a reminder this is a must visit show if you can make it. This is many local dealers first show after returning from Tucson so there should be plenty of new material to look at. You could not ask for a better venue for a show. Hope to see you there.

Just a reminder that the show opens this Saturday. If you live within a few hours drive it is well worth the trip. Make sure to take in the mineral exhibits as they are first rate, as a matter of fact some of the best i've seen anywhere.

I am planning to go tomorrow! I have to get some directions (like, what do I do after crossing that bridge, what's it called, Patroon?). It's icy tonight. Hope conditions are good tomorrow.

Parking was a pain but the show was lovely. Neat to see the info tables by Mohawk-Hudson Professional Geologists' Association & the CSR Geology Club! Glad to have the museum coat check, especially as there were many tight squeezes at the show and if we all had coats on or carried it would have been worse. Here's what I came home with. My son got a few little things too. I was just coming over to mindat to look up some mineral names.
