It is once again time to take MSHA refresher training so that you can participate on all of this year’s upcoming field trips.

Scott Kell will be giving his collector-specific training on Saturday, March 23, from 9:00 AM -2:00 PM in the Barbara Deer Kuss Science Center at Wittenberg University, Springfield, Ohio. If you are using your GPS, the street address is 315 Bill Edwards Drive, Springfield, OH. Parking is available directly across the street from the Science Center.  Signs will be posted on the doors of the Science Center to guide you regardless of what door you come in.  I have been told by our host, Ken Bladh, that we are one floor up in a smaller room (holds 50) this year.


The Dayton Gem & Mineral Society and Cincinnati Mineral Society are welcome to participate.  I am asking the folks on cc: to please distribute this email to their memberships.

Coffee will be available. Please consider bringing some snacks/drinks for yourself and others to enjoy.  WE ARE NOT BREAKING FOR LUNCH so please come prepared for this if you cannot wait for food.

This event is free. Students are welcome to attend.  Most quarries do not let people under 18 into them.

To make it easy to keep track of who attends and get certified, I would ask that you please respond to this at and let us know if you do plan to attend.
