Monica Rakovan spent part of this past summer with husband, John, attending the latest Mindat Conference held in Poland, collecting at mines, viewing mineral collections and visiting museums in Poland and Germany. The Mindat conferences have been held in a variety of countries including such exotic places as Madagascar, Myanmar, and Morocco, and many of you have heard presentations regarding these trips. Each conference is different, all are exciting, and the attendees spend days interacting with other mineral-minded folks.
The 2017 conference was well organized (as usual) and great fun (also, as usual). Monica is preparing an article to appear in Rocks & Minerals magazine, so Marie suggested she share some of her experiences directly with us. We’re happy she agreed.
Please remember to invite a guest; this program should spark your interest, and perhaps you might consider signing up for a future conference. As always, the public is invited to attend our meetings. Note that this meeting has been moved back to the 3rd Friday to allow CMS members to visit the Greater Detroit Show held on our regular meeting date.
