AMERICAN FEDERATION OF MINERALOGICAL SOCIETIES FUTURE ROCKHOUNDS OF AMERICA

Roster of Participating Clubs (October 21, 2013)

At the beginning of 2008, I emailed and/or mailed all clubs that have ever used or expressed interest in our AFMS/FRA program to ask which clubs wished to retain their affiliation. The following list has been compiled from those clubs that responded. If your club wishes to be affiliated with FRA but isn’t listed, please contact me—Jim Brace-Thompson, 7319 Eisenhower Street, Ventura, CA 93003, jbracethroadrunner.com, (805) 659-3577—and we’ll add you during our next update.
