The Annual Gem & Mineral Show and Competition of lapidaries from all over NSW, will be presented by the Lapidary Council of NSW Inc, at Hawkesbury Showground, Racecourse Road, Clarendon NSW 2756 over the Labour Day Weekend 1-3 October 2016, 9am to 5pm Saturday and Sunday, and 9am to midday on Monday.
The competition between lapidaries from across the State, and often other States, too, will inspire new and older members to try a new aspect of this great hobby.
As a special treat the Muzeum of Comparative Zoology has agreed to attend again this year, and will have a model of the fierce Albertasaurus, along with many other pre-historic models. Traders have lots of wonderful things to tempt us; a great chance to buy gifts for those hard to please people, and tailgaters who may well have that special something you’ve been hunting for. Demonstrations by experienced club members always attract a lot of attention, and the free activities for children will keep their interest for some time.
Camping is available. Wheelchair access is easy. Parking plentiful. Refreshments top notch.
So come and join us!
