We do have occasional field trips and can also point you in the right direction for your personal field collecting. Club newsletters are sent out 8 times per year. Newsletters are packed with articles and event notices. See our archives in the member area. Club equipment is available to all members on a first come first served basis for month-long terms. We have a scope, digital camera, SLR camera with bellows and several DVD recordings of well known micro speakers.
At the end of our meeting season, members have the opportunity to hear a prominent speaker on a topic of value to micromounters, and may purchase good specimens at bargain prices. We try to keep dues and other expenses to a minimum in order that everyone may participate. See Thoughts on Micromounting by Pat Barker.
