TBFC’s End of the Season Banquet - June 2nd

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 2017-2018 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 $7 per person which makes for an inexpensive family outing.

TBFC’s End of the Season Banquet will be held at the American Postal Workers Union Hall, 4409 West Alva Street, Tampa, Florida 33614 at 5PM on June 3rd. This location is about a mile from Raymond James Stadium. 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). 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!

Closed for Summer

As I close this edition of the Tampa Bay Fossil Chronicles, the 2017-2018 season comes to an end for this publication. As I have reported to you many times in the past, it is an honor and a privilege to serve and represent the Tampa Bay Fossil Club and its many fine members.

I want to thank the great support staff behind me in the Officers, Directors, and many of you members who volunteer to help TBFC excel to the exceptional level it has in both the public and scientific communities. Without all of you, none of what TBFC accomplishes each season would be possible.

Good Hunting!
