For those who are not on FB I posted this article after having a phone interview. I must be careful what I say as they reported it word for word what I had said  :P

Gemorama is done & dusted for this year. Lots of lessons learned that are easily fixed next year.


Disappointing turnout but the feedback I have seen & heard was positive. Many people were disappointed they didnt go so numbers will improve. I guess Minerama had the same result in their initial year.


Lots of pics up now on here & the FB page.

Definitely!

For example I couldn't make it because of my sisters wedding - hopefully that won't be happening again next year!!   ;D

I've got a few ideas too we'll chat about but, as you said, next year most of the organisation is pretty set up so you'll need less time and be more focused on key things.

12-15 / day.  :'(  I have 6 months to get trips sealed in place then another mad advertising blitz  :P 


I have a few tricks in place to overcome financial problems which will be revealed when trips are confirmed.


I know many people were disappointed they couldnt go this year due to the awesome finds others had. I'm already thinking of trips & have a few in mind  ;) [size=78%] [/size]

Bob, I am home and recovered from the trip. 

Had a great time as well as a chance to meet some more fellow fossickers and a chance to put faces to fellow ALFers.  ;D
A fair few nice tourmaline specimens that I scratched up are still sitting up at Gadens for people to pick up next time.  I even found a 10 cent size piece of fluorite there.  Finds by others included quartz crystals with tourmaline inside, a citrine and a nice smoky point.
Some nice sapphires including dog tooths were found on the Sunday trip by lucky fossickers.

Next year should be even better so do not miss it.  beers   
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

We did have lovely weather for the weekend. Days were sunny & about low 20's, nights had some showers on the Sat nite but the fire pit worked perfectly under the carport. Mornings were brisk but bearable & it warmed up fairly quickly. As most of you know, the intensity of the sun up here takes the unwary by surprise so sunburn can happen when least expected.


Got a few ideas for next year but have been busy here lately & with the lovely rain we had for the past 2 days was impossible to get out & research my new sites. Hope to have them nailed down in the next month or 2 at most. My plan is to have everything in place by Christmas so I can relax & just iron out the small details. Hope to see more of you up here next June.  ;D

With most of the organisational legwork done this year it will be much easier next year Bob!  Looking forward to making it this time too!

I'm starting to get serious fossicking withdrawal symptoms.  I haven't gotten to do any since Minerama and not sure when I'll get to go again next.

Could always toss your gems in a bucket of dirt. Shake them up then pour into a sieve.  ;D
