The Rendezvous committee met today, and we expect to have more information and the registration form to the BCLS shortly for posting on their website.
The registration form will include a section for reserving on site camping.
Our club has arranged a special rate for a field trip to the Rock Candy Mine. To get the special rate, we will need pre-payment, as we need a minimum number of people. There will be a separate info and sign up form for the Rock Candy field trip. In the event of unforeseen circumstances cancelling the trip, your pre-payment will be refunded.
We are close to finalizing the affordable family supper for Sunday. Details and pricing coming soon.
Penticton Geology and Lapidary Club - Your Rendezvous 2018 Host Club
Rock Creek is 50km east of Osoyoos, in the Kettle River Valley.
Our venue is the Rock Creek Fairgrounds, where the buildings are surrounded by lush green grass, and there is plenty of dry camping room on site. There will be electrical hook-ups for about 30 RV's, not 30amp outlets, but enough power to keep your house batteries topped up. Coin-operated showers.
Dogs are strictly prohibited on the Fairgrounds, however there is dry camping across the road where dogs are allowed.
Our goal with this blog site is to give you as much advance information as possible on this beautiful area, services, attractions, and rich history.
When we aren't out rock hounding, we'll be adding information to this site from now until May 2018.
The May long weekend is the start of the busy tourist season in the area, so if you want a motel room, or full hook-up campground, you should book as soon as possible.
