We’re working hard to launch our new and improved website very soon.
We’re confident the new experience will be worth the wait, but do apologise for any inconvenience.
In the meantime:
COVID-19 Update - Meeting information:
There will be no Society General Meetings held at the Parramatta and Holroyd Lapidary Club until further notice, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This also applies to all other Mineralogical Society activities including field trips, and any other societies or lapidary club activities, shows, sales events previously announced and scheduled and open-air events such as the Gemboree and the Canberra Rock Swap all of which are cancelled.
However, the coming Friday meeting (April 3rd) will be broadcast using the internet-based meeting platform "Zoom". This is a simple and free program, similar to Skype. To use it, members need to have an email address (so they can be sent the meeting link), and also have a computer that has sound. If you can watch and hear a news video on your computers, you should be able to view the meeting just fine in your own homes.
The Committee, none of whom are young IT geeks, used Zoom very successfully for the last Committee meeting.
There will be a practice meeting so you can check that Zoom works on your computer on Tuesday evening at 7.30 pm. Instructions and a link to the meeting will be sent out by a separate email from John Chapman. Graham Ogle will run the practice session and set up the Friday meeting as well. Please join the practice session if you are not familiar with Zoom. Phone support will be available as well from 4 committee members (Graham, John C, Dieter, Ed).
Then later in the week we will send the link for the Friday meeting.
