We are soliciting submissions for the competition case at the Rock and Gem show in March.
Items suitable for submission are rock / lapidary related items that you have made yourself and have not submitted to the show before. Examples are cabochons, faceted rocks, wire wrapping, sculpture, silver work incorporating rocks. If your item is bigger than 30cm cubed, please contact the show organizers in advance so extra display space can be arranged. A maximum of 3 items per member may be submitted. The competition is judged by a mystery judge and as-yet-undetermined small prizes will be awarded in the categories of junior member / adult member / beginner / advanced skill levels.
Items should be provided to the show organizers at the latest on Saturday morning of the show (17th March) although if items could be submitted the Thursday or Friday before, that would be appreciated. Items can be reclaimed immediately after the show, at the following Monday meeting, or from the workshop.
Participation in the competition case is available to members only.
The BCLS publishes a calendar each year, featuring 13 photographs of rocks and minerals from British Columbia and the dates of rock shows across the province. The photographs included are determined by way of contest; we’re now happy to announce the opening of the 2019 BCLS Calendar Photo Contest!
The contest is open to all BCLS members. Enter for a chance to win one of 13 spots on our 2019 calendar. The prize for each photo chosen is a copy of the calendar and a lapidary item valued at not less than $20. Contest closes Canada Day July 1st 2018. See full contest rules below or on our website. Remember, our calendar lists all the BCLS club shows. Help make our calendar great!
