What's New 
Yes, there will be a Gem-O-Rama in 2018.  

1.   If you plan to be driving on highway 395 anywhere north of Interstate 15,
      be aware that nearly all of this is two lane road with lots of slow moving
      trucks. Between Adelanto and Kramer Corner there is only one short passing
      lane; the rest is two lane with a double-double line down the middle (absolutely
      no passing allowed).  This is also a dangerous stretch of highway so be careful.
      North of Kramer Corner there are fewer trucks and passing is allowed but there
      but there are no passing lanes so this is still a very dangerous stretch of highway.

2.   We will continue to have all drivers sign a Liability Waiver that says the
      driver willingly accepts all responsibility and liability for any damages or
      loss of property that occur to him or to anyone in his card and that occur
      while on a field trip.  The required liability form can be found at
      Liability Waiver Form. You can bring this completed from with you or
      sign one when you pay for your field trip ticket.

     This field trip will again
be on Friday afternoon, 2:00 to 6:30PM (it will be dark
     by 6:30).  While everyone is welcome to participate, we expect that only dealers
     who hope to profit from our pink halite can afford the cost of this field trip.  
     We will continue the cost structure that we had in 2017 - $150 for car and driver
      + $50 for each additional person.  Accordingly, the cost will be $100.00 for each
     vehicle and $50.00 for every person in that vehicle.  So a car with only the driver
     will be $150 while a car with 4 collectors will cost $300.  

    We will again require reservations for the Friday field trip.
    (Reservations are not required for any other field trips)
     Reservations will close at 8:00PM, Sunday, October 7
    No limit on number of cars allowed on field trip

     Registration gives the SVM heavy equipment operators enough time to prepare
     a place for all participants to park relatively close to the collecting area.  

     When reserving, provide the following: your name, number of cars, number
     of people and phone number. You will pay when you sign in with your
     signed liability waiver on Friday, Oct. 12

4.  Sunday Pink Halite Field Trip -
      a.   Yes, we know we have a problem with parking.
Sometime in the next several
we will be assessing options to alleviate this problem.
      b.   We will also look at making more and better quality pink halite throughout
            the Sunday collecting area.
     More on this in the future.
