September 13, 2022, Monthly Meeting

On Tuesday, September 13, 2022, at 7:00 p.m., we’ll be having our monthly meeting featuring…

BMC Live: Members Show and Tell!
with You! (and your fellow members)

About the presenters…

All of the presenters at the Show and Tell meeting are BMC members. Anyone who has one or more specimens to talk about can get on the roster and will have 5 or 10 minutes, depending on demand, to show what they’ve found, purchased, traded, or otherwise acquired. Advance signups with our president are preferred, but last minute additions at the meeting are fine too. Join us and bask in your five minutes of fame!

The details…

Yes, you read that correctly! On Tuesday, September 13th, at 7:00 p.m., the BMC will finally resume LIVE monthly meetings at Harvard after two and a half years of absence. We have received official permission to resume our regular meetings at Haller Hall, the traditional geology lecture hall we have come to know and love.

As we have for nearly 80 years, our first meeting after the summer break will be our annual Show-and-Tell session, where club members will have a chance to show us their best recent additions from collecting trips, mineral shows, or auctions. This is one of our most popular meetings, as it allows us to get together again after the long summer break and reconnect over some pretty minerals. We are looking forward to seeing what’s new.

As was the norm for live meetings before, there will be some time for early socializing, and we are told the collection upstairs will be available for viewing. Hopefully, we will resume our traditional cash raffle for specimens you can add to your collections. At roughly 7:30, there will be a brief review of club business, after which we will transition into the member presentations. We will close by selecting the raffle winners. [We are looking into the possibility of live streaming the meeting over the internet for those who cannot attend in person, but whether we can muster the hardware and knowledgeable volunteers to do so in time for the meeting is still not clear. Details and links will be forwarded on BMC Announce closer to meeting time.] If you are interested in participating in the Show-and-Tell session, please contact BMC President Scot Krueger at least 24 hours ahead with a sense of what you wish to share, along with any digital images you would like to project.
