54th Annual "Rockin' the Coast" Gem & Mineral show

This years show will be the clubs' 54th Annual Show. We have changed the dates to the Memorial Day weekend because we were unable to get a permanent weekend in June at the Armory. We hope to host the show during the Memorial Day weekend from now on.


Back again this year after a long absence, a new improved Kids corner. A separate Silent Auction for kids 14 and under, grab bags, bean bag toss, and an educational area showing the different stones found on our beaches and how to identify them.


The Grand Prize in this years Raffle will be a Lortone QT66 tumbler. The QT66 features 2 6lb barrels which allows you to have 2 batches of rocks going at once. The unit can also be upgraded with a 12 lb capacity barrel. Other prizes will be a gem scoop for beach hunters, Mineral and fossil specimens, and great Gift Certificates from Newport area restaurants and businesses.
