As usual I am woefully late putting this up as we just got most of the details settled. This is our 55th annual show. The show will be at Telstar High School on Route 26 in Bethel, Maine. This year we will have 17 dealers, killer displays, wicked good food, lots of fun, a field trip to Mt. Mica on Sunday, a Grand Door Prize of a Maine Aquamarine Necklace, a good silent auction, and who knows what else. Bethel is awful nice this time of year, whether you are just passing through or actually live around here. Our web site is now or contact me here if you have any questions

It would be handy if you also mentioned the dates ...

And writing the town and state as one word is not very clear to non US people on Mindat, I guess.

BTW, is not the Maine Mineral Museum located in Bethel as well?

Are they open during the show days?

Definitely worth mentioning them as well, I would think.

Cheers, Herwig

This is what happens when a cat jumps on the keyboard....I forget to add important stuff. July 9 and 10, 2016 are the show dates. Yes, the Maine Mineral and Gem Museum is in Bethel. While the museum is not yet open, there is a store and 6 or 8 display cases open Monday- Saturday. The cases are just superb, well worth the trip. For those who used to visit Perhams in West Paris, many of the minerals that were on display there are now at the museum. There is also some mining going on in the area this summer.

I just found out, 2 minutes ago, that we can offer a field trip to the Bennett Mine in Buckfield on Saturday, July 9. The trip will be run through Western Maine Mineral Adventures and you must be a paid show attendee to get the reduced rate. Sign up between 9 and 10 am.
