on the early years of the club, presented by Charter Member Bob Smith.

The earliest years of the club through 1972 were known as the "Wind Creek Years," when the rock & gem show was a "rock swap" held at the Wind Creek State Park.  Bob had souvenirs of those years and brought rocks & specimens that he had collected all over the state.  He talked about some of the field trips he'd been on, and related many anecdotes about club members past & present.  All the kids left with rocks that Bob had brought for them.

Bob Smith enthralled us all with the history of AMLS and a discussion of unusual rocks and minerals.

The enthusiastic crowd!
And everyone had a great time!

After the meeting, we had...  TAILGATING!
