TBFC’s End of the Season Banquet
June 6th at Nature’s Classroom

Don’t let the “banquet” thing impress you too much. It’s just a fancy word for TBFC’s annual end of the season informal dinner and get together (with a scholarship presentation, fossil auction, and some door prizes thrown in for good measure). It doesn’t matter if you’ve been a member of TBFC for ten years or ten minutes, everyone’s invited. The dinner is a great opportunity for fossil friends old and new to get together for a final evening of fun and fossil tales as we wrap up the 2014-2015 season. And there’s always a bunch of great fossils and “paleo” related items in the auction (if you have anything you’d like to donate, just bring it along to the dinner). This is a great event for the entire family and cheap too.

We’ll cater in spaghetti, pizza, wings, salads, dessert and drinks. The cost is just $6 per person which makes for an inexpensive family outing.

TBFC’s End of the Season Banquet will be held at the TECO Center for Environmental Studies at Nature’s Classroom at 5PM on June 7th. Nature’s Classroom is located at 1300 Verges Road, Thonotosassa, FL 33592. This is only about ten minutes from where we normally meet at USF.

RSVP is not required, just show up and pay at the door. But… If you do know in advance that you will be attending, please send me an email to let me know (fossilnerd@msn.com or Facebook). This will help out a lot with knowing how much food to have on hand when everyone arrives. Don’t miss it!

This really, really, is the last event of the season, whew!

Good Hunting,
Mike Searle
