Field trip registration is open to the public and all club members who live more than 100 miles from Dollar Bay. This is an opportunity for those who cannot normally attend our club field trips to experience mineral collecting on a prepared surface. After June 1 any field trips that haven’t sold will be made available to all members. Club members can register for any or all of the evening social events at any time. This year we will be offering classes on using metal detectors. Our guides will arrive to the field trip locations an hour before the event and coach those unfamiliar with using detectors. There are a lot of different detectors on the market but they all use the same principal. We will try to give you a few pointers to be more successful
Badges will be prepared for each attendee, indicating which event you have paid registration. These badges can be picked up at the Sunday evening social event or at the beginning of all the other events. You must have your badge to participate in each event. Eventbrite may instruct you that you need your ticket to attend but this isn’t necessary. In the event there is a mistake on your badge, we will have all the registration information issued by Eventbrite to correct the problem.
