July 2014 Program:
Del Air Annual Ice Cream & Bingo Social             Presented By: The Del Air Board & Committee Chairs 
The Del Air Board of Directors & Committee Chairs is once again proud to bring you our annual Ice Cream & Bingo Social. Every year, the month of July affords us the opportunity to get together for a delicious summer treat and play a few games of BINGO for fun and fabulous prizes (donated by the membership) before we break for the summer. We’ll play 7 or 8 various forms of bingo, time permitting. We’ll start with 4 games then break for ice cream sundaes and then play another 3 or 4 games when we return from break. Why not come join us for this fun filled annual event?                                                                 Emmy Silverman – Program Director

“Something” of the Month

In honor of our annual Ice Cream & Bingo Social, club member Marilyn Murata asks about the origins of the game Bingo.
Find out more at our July and even though this is not “rock related”, there will still be a color handout available for those of you that have been collecting these info sheets over the past few years.

Del Air Rockhounds and the 2014 CFMS Show

The Del Air Rockhounds made a fine turnout at this year’s show. In addition to me and Bob Knox, both of whom spent the entire 4 day weekend working the show, Bob & Maxine Dearborn worked the show all day Saturday. Bob Dearborn manned the Club Central booth along with me and Bob Knox. We talked to many, many people and promoted the Del Air club and rockhounding in general.  Maxine Dearborn worked the front door greeting people and selling raffle tickets. Bob Knox and I were appointed official CFMS judges this year and had the opportunity to judge several of the competitive cases in this year’s show. It took some time to get the hang of it but all went smoothly and we learned a lot. I entered just one case this year due to the other things I committed myself to. I took a first place win for my Before & After educational case earning 99 out of 100 points. In addition to the aforementioned members, we also saw Jeff & Candy Dearborn, Anita Lichtman, Sharon Fyfe, Irene Lovell and Bob, Leilani and Jamie Backus who were also vendors at the show. I also had some friends from my work that showed up. The Pasadena Lapidary Society did a bang up job putting together this year’s show. Congratulations to Joe & Marcia Goetz and their entire team for a job well done.
