hearing about any "lessons learned" from previous attempts."

Hi Michael,

"Time at Tucson is at a premium, and the purpose of it is to get

around and see what's there. Tucson is an exciting place and

there is just too much to see. While some people may have

the luxury of time on their hands, with the Internet at everyone's

disposal, you'd have to design things to really be fun or

interesting, IMO."

"By all means, go for it if you would like to be a force in the

community doing this! Just don't be surprised if the response

is attenuated due to all the competing things going on, after

all ... being in Tucson during the show is a pretty hands on

collecting, trading, swapping experience and that's

mostly why those from out of town make the pilgrimage."

A person could schedule such "educational presentations" like

"short courses" are scheduled at scientific meetings. Do not

schedule for during the meetings, but "premeeting," the day

before the Tucson Show starts, and post meeting, the day after

the Tuscon Show ends. That way the educational presentations

are not competing with the meeting and all people need to

do is arrived a day early or leave a day later to attend the

presentations. Also, along with educational presentations,

there is enough geology around Tuscon that a person could

offer geology field trips.
