Re: Re: MAGMA type club in New England
As an active member of the MAGMA group, I'd like to extend a friendly invitation to you to join us on one of our many, many digs. You'll meet some of the finest rockhounds you've ever encountered. You'll see that many of them are more than willing to assist newcomers, show them how to find specimens, help them extract them, and even give things they've found to others who don't have quite as much luck as them.
They'll share veins that they open, help carry large specimens to someone else's vehicle, police the sites before and after digs to make sure the owners are not left with a mess, and do all of the things that good rockhounds do.
And, you don't have to be a member of the group to go on digs with us. Anyone can come. That's why the club is the fastest growing organization in rockhounding these days. It's just a bunch of great folks who share a common interest in collecting mineral and gems for our collections.
My friends in the club are decent, caring people who are taking rockhounding back to its glory days, when it was open to everyone and was a social event as well as a day of collecting.
I have no idea what has given you a bad impression of MAGMA, but all I know is what I see on each and every trip I go on with them�.and it's all good.
Come on out and meet us sometime. And feel free to bring a few friends along. Everybody's welcome!
