Saturday night awards dinner and silent auction. A MUST see and a great way to support the TGMS who make this whole MAIN show come about. Please, let's see some more support next year?
All ages are awarded and it would be nice to see a cheering squad, although Kristalle did a fine job of that this year!

Hi Gail:

Again great photos of the social side of mineral collecting. If only minerals could talk! Keep up the good work.

I will be honest, I cannot remember what all the awards are as I was busy taking photos and not writing anything down, so am hoping people might let me know?

...Rob Lavinsky of Arkenstone urges children to enter minerals in competition and offers a nice cash award to those that do.
I was sad to see that we only had one photo op, as the kids were in hotel rooms asleep or with their parents elsewhere. Lauren, however, was called back up as she is 17 and still eligible. She won a cash award from Rob.
