Presedents Message

By Jo Anna Ritchey, CFMS President

CFMS President

This is my first message as President. I am a bit concerned that many rockhounds do not know anything about the workings of the CFMS. I would like to make it our goal this year to remedy this. I realize that many that receive this bulletin know the responsibilities of the various CFMS Committees (possibly better than I do) and this year I would like all who receive this bulletin to review the committiee responsibilities with your club members. I will begin with the question "Do you know the difference between the Endowment Fund and the Scholarship Fund?" They are not the same.

Endowment Fund. Try an experiment, ask a relatively knowledgeable member of your club who has not held a CFMS Committee Position and listen to the answer. The odds will be that they do not have a clue or maybe a vague clue. The principal of the Endowment Fund is invested and the CFMS can use the interest The interest is currently used for emergencies or one time needs. It is my hope that in the future the CFMS will be able to meet its annual budget with the interest from the Endowment Fund. Reality is that annual shows are bringing in fewer funds each year. I am told that not so long ago the CFMS portion was approximately the same amount as the total current earnings. It would be good for the host club of a CFMS Show to be able to keep all the show earnings This can only be done if the CFMS have a source of funds to meet its annual budget. If there is no CFMS because it went broke there will be no Scholarship Fund. There was a form in the December 2001 bulletin and it is also found on the internet (www.cfmsinc.org).

CFMS Scholarship Fund. Do the people in your club know the steps between the receiving of money in the fund and the issuing funds to a student? Try asking them and listen to their answer. The CFMS Scholarship Committee duties include selecting an honoree, inviting the students to attend the next Show Convention, and insuring that all donations are properly received and acknowledged. The person(s) selected to be honored shall have nade great contributions toward the realization of the avowed purpose and goals for the CFMS. The Honoree may or may not be a member of a CFMS society. The Honoree may receive this award only once. The Honoree shall select the school(s) at the college or university level within the territorial jurisdiction of the CFMS which shall receive the Scholarship Grants and shall participate the schools in the selection of the student awardee(s). Just how do you think the Committee selects the honoree? As Directors you should have a good idea of who is doing what. I also know that as rockhounds you have an opinion on many things . SHARE your opinions by writing briefly why you think this person should be honored. Give this committee some help. They do not know everyone and everything. Is there someone in your club or area that should be recognized? If so, do something about it.

Education Through Sharing

By Barbara Matz, Chairman

Greetings! I am replacing Colleen McGann as the CFMS Education Through Sharing chair - since she is moving on up to the front table as CFMS Secretary. Colleen has done a great job for three years, and I'll have to work hard to fill her shoes.

Member recognition is one of the good things you can do for your club and for rockhounding -- and it's virtually free!

You all know the rules: Each year, every club in the federation gets to nominate one member, or one couple, who have made a significant contribution to rockhounding through their knowledge, skills, hard work, and willingness to get involved.

I'll print your nominations in the CFMS Newsletter and then pass them along to the American Federation.

You can send nominations via snail mail or e-mail -- either one is fine with me - to the following address:

P.O. Box 7086
Petaluma, CA 94955-7086

All american Club Award Program

By Dorothy and Robert Beachler

Provide a model for organizing an annual historical account for the posterity of each club, and offer an opportunity for national recognition of exceptional clubs. Just as the award is focused on quality effort that enables members to grow and clubs to flourish, it is also focused on quality that the All American Club Award judges seek in evaluating applications for regional and national honors. Completeness of the report is important, and quality is valued over quantity. Reports must be received by the club's regional chairperson by February 28, 2002.

This is not a competition of one club against others. This is an evaluation of quality based on a standard of excellence. Gold, Silver and Bronze awards are granted for achievement of points in the appropriate scoring range. Only the top regional and national awards are determined on a high point basis. To allow more equality, separate top awards will be given for large clubs (100 or more members), small clubs (up to 99 members) and organized junior divisions (5 or more members)." We hope many clubs will enter the 2001 program. Complete entry forms are available on the CFMS website (www.cfmsinc.org), or you may contact us and we will mail a set to you.





Junior Activities Report

By By Jim Brace-Thompson,
CFMS Junior Activities Chair 2001

A Web Site Guides Kids to Fossil Prospecting
From the Field to the Museum and All Steps In-between:

In the October issue of Natural History magazine, I read an article by Robert Anderson about web sites for kids, and I've just finished checking out one that he describes: "Follow a Fossil." If you have budding young paleontologists among the junior members of your club, be sure to guide them to this site! Created as an educational outreach effort by the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and funded by the National Science Foundation, its web address is: www.dmnh.org/denverbasin2/fossil.

The site starts out with some general background and a few pages on "What is a Fossil?" These pages introduce kids to the process of fossilization and also to the geological time scale. Kids can then choose from one of three kinds of fossils to learn about vertebrates, invertebrates, or plants. The vertebrate site focuses on a Cretaceous turtle collected near Marmarth, North Dakota. The invertebrate site focuses on 73-million-year-old Cretaceous ammonites from Kremmling, Colorado. And the plant site describes fossil leaves from Late Cretaceous Hell Creek formation and Early Paleocene Fort Union formation in North Dakota.

Each site guides kids through 6 basic steps that lead from discovery to the museum: 1) prospecting, 2) excavation, 3) preparation, 4) curation, 5) research, and 6) exhibiting. Each step is illustrated with text and photographs. Kids will be able to view fossils being discovered in the field, extracted and protected for the journey to the lab, meticulously prepared by technicians, stored and curated, described by researchers,and finally placed in carefully planned displays in the Denver museum.

This would be a perfect site to explore with kids prior to a field trip for fossils to reinforce the fact that collecting is only the beginning of the story when it comes to fossils. There's a lot more involved in preserving your finds and then teasing out the history of life that fossils hold. But while it involves a lot of work, Its also clear from the text in the web site and from the pictures that these scientists also know how to have fun!





You May Save Your Life If You Wear Your Seat Belt

By Chuck McKie, CFMS Safety Chair
via City of Phoenix Safety Department

Facts and Figures

Each year 15,000 lives could be saved if everyone wore seat belts. At 30 miles per hour, an unrestrained passenger weighing 150 pounds exerts the force of more than two tons as it crashes against another object. This is enough to kill!

Only 61 percent of Americans always use their seat belts when they're driving in their car. Another 30 percent sometimes use the belts and nine percent never do.

Myths About Seat Belts.

I don't need a seat belt when driving at slow speeds or on short trips. All driving is dangerous. Fatalities have been recorded as slow as 12 miles per hour on nonbelted occupants. Most crashes occur at speeds less than 40 miles per hour. Of all crashes, 75 percent occur within 25 miles from home.

Seat belts are uncomfortable and too confining. Seat belts are designed to allow motion around the vehicle. They provide plenty of freedom without compromising safety. They are designed to activate immediately should a car come to a sudden halt. After regular use, seatbelts are very comfortable.

If I wear a seat belt, I might get trapped in a burning car or caught in one underwater. Less than one out of 200 traffic related incidents involve fire or water submersion. Even so, you're much more likely to be knocked out and rendered unconscious if you're not wearing a belt. Your chances of escape are better while wearing a seat belt.

I might be saved if I'm thrown clear of a car in a collision. You are 25 times more likely to be killed in a crash when thrown from a vehicle. The force of an impact can throw you 150 feet... 15 car lengths! Seat belts also prevent you from smashing your head into the windshield, which could cause spinal damage.

When I see a collision happening, I'll brace myself. Crashes happen in the blink of an eye. It is impossible to prepare for crashes, and the forces generated are enormous.

I don't want to offend my passengers by telling them to buckle up. Most people willingly put on seat belts if someone only reminds them.

Drive safely!

Wiley Well District Field Trip
January 28 - February 1, 2002

Hosted by CFMS Field Trip Chairman - North

4310 Kingsly Dr. Pittsburg, CA 94565
Ph: (925) 439-7509 / Email: dickpankey@juno.com

By now I hope your plans are finalized to join us for 5 great days of collecting trips, happy hours, potluck dinners, campfires and generally all around rockhound fun. The flier that was printed in the November Newsletter has the directions to our campsite and the schedule of our daily trips. There are plenty of good campsites for trailers, motor homes and Centers. For those that don't "camp", there are good motels in Blythe only 25 miles away.

I have finalized the "To be announced" collecting trips for Thursday and Friday. On Thursday Jim Strain will lead us to an area on Indian Pass Road about 50 miles south of our camp. This area is best known for dumortierite, but petrified palm, agate, jasper, hematite, basanite, and kyanite is also found there. This area is under claim for gold and this may be one of the last times we may collect there. Dumortierite is a medium to dark blue rock that is similar to lapis.

On Friday we will revisit another old geode area to the west of our camp called the Hidden Saddle. This area has not been that productive in recent years but according to stories of some old timers it was "the place" to find unusual and spectacular geodes. Also, BLM is threatening to close the road to this site and we want to show them that we still need this road.

Our first potluck dinner will be on Monday evening. We will have potlucks on the other evenings for all who wish to participate. We will have a Soup Potluck one evening so bring one to two cans of soup, vegetables, beans, stew or meat per person. This is a fun dinner and always a surprise.

A highlight of the 2000 trip was the dedication of this great geode collecting area as a Rockhound Educational and Recreational Area by the BLM. This was accomplished through the efforts of Jim Strain and Isabella Burns. The dedication took place on Monday evening after our potluck dinner. One of the agreements in the Memorandum of Understanding that establishes the Rockhound Educational and Recreational Area for the geode beds in the Wiley Well District is: "Periodic cleanups will be coordinated between BLM and CFMS to remove trash from the sites. BLM agrees to designate a site for the deposit of the trash collected for proper disposal as needed CFMS agrees to notify BLM of cleanups as scheduled."

As part of our collecting again this year we will pick up trash, as well as, rocks and geodes. The purpose of our trash cleanup at Wiley Well is more than just to pick up some trash and get tickets for a raffle. The purpose is to make us think about the impact we have on our collecting areas and to help us develop some new "collecting habits". The BLM is not a cleanup service that carries off our trash and garbage after our collecting and camping trips. When using any public lands practice "Pack it in/Pack it out". Our first objective when on a collecting trip is do not litter. That is, do not leave anything behind, i.e. drink cans and plastic bottles, plastic bags, food waste and garbage. Don't be part of the problem. And our second objective is to leave an area cleaner than we found it. Be part of the solution.

To help me plan and accommodate all that will attend this trip, please call, write or e-mail me with your "reservation". Since our insurance situation was resolved, this trip is open to members and guests. Make your plans to join us, whether for a day, a few days or the whole week, at the Wiley Well District.

How Benitoite Became California's Gemstone

By Shirley Leeson. CFMS Historian
shirleyleeson@email.msn.com

Carmelita Swarts of the San Diego Mineral & Gem Society began this project in 1984 because the SDMG club was hosting the AFMS/CFMS National Show. We thought it would be great to have this event coincide with the show. We had a wonderful "lady" Assemblywoman, Lucy Killea from San Diego and "Rusty" Areias from the 25th Assembly District, San Benito County carry the bill SB2404 through the Assembly. They didn't have any trouble with the Assembly. We were shot down in the Senate. We had failed to realize that we needed a Senator to also sponsor the bill.

In the Sacramento Bee, Monday July 2, 1984 "Assemblywoman Lucy Killea'a bill to declare Benitoite as the State Official Gemstone was laughed to death Friday." The bill was \unanimously approved by the Senate Judicial Committee. It should have been a consent item. By the time Mrs. Killea learned of the action it was too late to request a re-hearing. The budget, as usual, had drained the energy from the Senators, and it was closing time. There were also two other bills for the state to recognize - they were for folk dancing and grass. (Don't know, but think this was some sort of native grass, not "the grass!)

The Nielsen, Napa and other areas around there following Senate members voted NO: Ayala, Los Angeles/San Bernardino, Carpenter, Orange; Dills, Los Angeles; Greene, Los Angeles; Hart, Los Angeles/Santa Barbara; Keene, DelNorte/Mendocino/Sonoma, Russell, Los Angeles; Vuich, Fresno, Tulare. Johnson, Butte, etc; Lockyer, Alameda; Maddy, Fresno/Maders Marks, San Francisco; Montoya, San Francisco; Roberti, LosAngeles; Rosenthal, Los Angeles; Seymour, Orange; Speraw, Los Angeles.

The bill was again introduced in 1985 by Rusty Arias and Lucy Killea. This time the entire CFMS was willing to work to get this bill passed. The names of those who had voted no were lobbied. This time the Bill was AB-2357. Charles Leach, CFMS President, 1984 went to Sacramento to lobby as well as those who lived in or near Sacramento.The bill finally passed the Senate on Wednesday, Sept 11, 1985. The Govemor signed the bill on October 1, 1985.

Those voting in the negative this time were: Boatwright, Contra Costa; Lockyer, Alameda; Presley, Riverside; Seymour, Orange Stern, Kem/Kings/Los Angeles.

Not voting were: Ayala, Los Angeles/San Bernardino; Foran, San Francisco Garamendi; Alpine, Amador etc; Green, Sacramento; Hart, Los Angeles; Montoya, Los Angeles; Nielsen, Butte/Colusa, etc; Richardson, Inyo/Los Angeles; Rosenthal, Los Angeles; Russell, Los Angeles; Vuich, Fresno, Tulare.

There is a beautiful specimen in the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum that is on loan from the CFMS. It is taken each year from there to the CFMS convention, and then returned.
