ALFers trip to Powelltown 17 Feb, 2018
« on: January 10, 2018, 04:52:18 PM »
Hi All

After the last successful ALFers trip to Powelltown, a revisit is needed.

The date for the trip is: Saturday 17th Feb 2018
Meeting place: 9:30am at the Powelltown Pub

Some nice stones were found last time and we should hopefully get some good weather for it.

Everyone is welcome, just leave a post and we'll confirm the dates closer to the time.

Always tempted for a fossick. I'll plan to be there. I will meet you at the bush car park as I am coming from Warragul direction
Baaa humbug, not enough fossicking time!

Sigh.  Have fun unfortunately will be at home waiting for a Solar battery to be added to our solar system.  :'(
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

Hi everyone!

Are newbies welcome along? I've just gotten into gem fossicking recently (got my miner's right and basic tools) and I'm looking for gemstones to use in electroform copper jewellery - it sounds like Powelltown is great spot for these! I've camped around there a few times, it's a gorgeous area  :) :)

Thanks! - Jess

Absolutely Jess, newbies are welcome. 
All you really need is a shovel and a sieve.  Waders are also a plus if you have some.

PM me though if you have any questions.

Pencil me in too.

That weekend is looking good at the moment, we had a ball last time we were there with the ALF crew.

Hi all.

Another newbie here interested in coming along on this trip.
Can you tell me if a 2WD car is ok to get to this location?  I don't have a 4WD.

Cheers.
