Rock Hound's Cabin Fever Party ~ January 12th

Cabin Fever Party 
Some of us are going crazy in the winter weather, and since the ground is still too frozen to go collecting at most locations, we're having a Rock Hound's Cabin Fever party at the Rock Shop on January 12th, 2013! We'll be teaching gold panning to kids and adults (free event). We are digging out hundreds of "hidden" flats full of rocks, minerals, and fossils. AND we'll be auctioning some things that are...well.. wonderful! 

Up for auction:

1. The chance to help us create the 2013 rock hounding expedition calendar--write in a date and location to personalize the calendar to your schedule! 
2. Have the crew of Rockpick create a one-of-a-kind hand-created piece of jewelry from a stone you've collected! We'll do everything from cutting and polishing the stone to hand crafted sterling silver work! 
3. Finally (and definitely not least) we will have envelopes with Rick's hand drawn maps to his most top secret rock hounding locations! You won't find these locations online, in books, or for sale anywhere else! 
There's just one thing you need to know before coming in to bid... we're not auctioning these items off with money (see below for more details)! 
Gather Rock Bucks
