We have an Eel River collecting trip planned for July 11th 2021. The water level is low and the rocks are hot. Final details are still being worked out. If you are interested in joining us email Brent at firstname.lastname@example.org. We need to have 2021 membership dues paid and have the SSNC liability waiver filled out beforehand.
The club is following the states current guidelines for Covid-19 safety protocols. Getting the vaccine is great to reduce risk but is not mandated for participation. If you are not vaccinated, keeping a social distance can prevent transmission of the flu. If you are not feeling well please do not attend club functions that could put others at risk.
I hope to see many of you out there.
With vaccines becoming more available there is a chance we will be able to resume meetings later this year. The city of Oakland has closed down the building for meetings at this time. It is likely we will be able to resume an in person collecting trip before meetings.
For now we’ll rely on our newsletter and Zoom to communicate what is going on with the club. We have a few Zoom meetings under our belt and I feel that by the time we all get good at it we will be able to meet in person again.
We would like to plan an online show this year. This would give everybody the opportunity to prepare and photograph their Suiseki for and online display. We need you to fill out your Photo Copy Release Form so we have the ok to use your images on our website. You can send those to Rick or Alise.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the remaining events for the
2020 calendar year have been cancelled. This is a situation
where the health and safety of our members will have to come
before our love of Suiseki. I hope everybody is staying healthy
and finding time to enjoy their hobbies. I’m looking forward to
2021 being a healthy and rocking year for everyone.
