Program: Round Robin of Skills and Interests
October’s program is a round robin. A simple way to think of round robin is that it is about “taking
turns”. Eight stations will be set up (see list below).
Attendees can then rotate among one, several, or all of the stations to learn something new or to have questions
answered. Lasting about 30 minutes, a timer will announce when 10 and 20 minutes have passed so that you
can better time your visits. A “bingo card” can be used to track the stations that you have visited and then used to
enter a drawing to be held at the end of the event.
Have you done anything unique with your rocks? Made special mountings/displays, collected into a fascinating array, etc.? What DO you do with the rocks you have around your house?
