It hasn't so far Malachi, but then I don't need to find something big to make my day, just something good. Pity you can't make it, haven't seen you for a while.

It will be a no show for Dawizard and myself. Decided to attend the VGCA fossicking trip at Whroo just to try something different. Good luck to all Alfers attending Jamo's gathering on Saturday. I hope you all come home with some very nice stones to brag about. Bucket does the size of the leech correspond to the size of crystal you find?  ::) ;D 

Hopefully will catch you all next time.   beers

Ask a "Silly" Question / Glen Innes area
« Last post by Nuggetunter on September 19, 2017, 03:46:56 PM »
We like free camping and are wondering if there is a good place to camp and fossick in the Glen Innes area and surrounds. It seems from my initial investigation that there only areas where you pay to camp and fossick. $30 plus per day. Have only just started fossicking for gems and am currently in sapphire area Qld. where we paid for a camping permit and a fossicking licence which is great. Found my first piece of broken green glass ;D and am finding it very interesting.

Just an update:
Marg and I have sold up in downtown Mordy and bought a 'hole in the ground' in Labrador, Qld.
Our 'hole in the ground' is slowly being filled in with a 12 storey apartment block. It wont be ready until next year.

From April until last Thursday, we had been living in our '5th Wheeler'. Now it is in storage and we have moved in with our youngest son and his family.

It was an experience packing up 40 years of 'crap' and moving it to Qld. Currently, it is 'holidaying' in a large Storage King unit at Southport.

Our removalist couldn't get over all the rocks that were heading North. They will be proudly displayed on one of our balconies, sitting on fake grass.

The reason for moving was mainly to watch our grandkids grow up.

I will post photos next year when our rocks are on display.

Makky,

the Centeyre Brilliant is by another SA designer, but it is for Intermediate and Open sections.

I'm starting to wonder if 64 index is standard in SA, or if they are just old designs. :-)

Regards

Re the JB CROSS pattern for novices .
That's ridiculous expecting novices to all have a 64 index wheel , particularly as some of the indexes don't transpose to a whole number on a 96 index.

Are you the designer John? 

I hope not, the Comp Schedule says "Design by the late Jack Bushby". beers
