IMCA Insights – February 2009
With so many rocks to see and things to do during the Tucson show and I am humbled by the fact we had such a nice turnout at the IMCA dinner this year.

This is the second year
where I've driven down from my home 211 miles North to the Tucson Show.
When I lived in Michigan I took for granted that a short airplane ride
could have me in the midst of all of those rocks by noon.

We were honored to have Rik and Dolores Hill as our guests this year. As you can see, meteorites and asteroids were well represented at that corner of the table.

The door prizes this year were awarded to Bill Jensen, Morton Bilet and Adam Hupe, who each won a table arrangement and specially selected Sikhote Alin meteorites.

reflect back each year after the Tucson Show the first thing that comes
to mind is how much I laugh. Yes, the meteorites and rocks and minerals
and fossils are great but the real reason I go every year is because of
the incredible people I am honored to call “friends”.
