The Fine Print

Date: Sunday, November 15, 2015  Easy access from I-405 or I-90  LOTS of free parking!

Location: Maple Valley Community Center --22010 SE 248th St, Maple Valley, WA 98038 -- Noon to 3:30 p.m.

Our 2015 Open House will feature goodies from our current year's production at Spruce, Rock Candy, our new Montana amethyst deposit: Little Gem; and Fluorita Dulcita, our private locality for AZ fluorite, plus piles of Spanish pyrite!  And our usual many flats of minerals, dirt cheap, to clean yourself.

Directions to Maple Valley Community Center: From I-405 take exit 4 (Rt. 169, aka Maple Valley Hwy).  Go south 12 miles, mostly thru countryside.  As you enter Maple Valley, the highway becomes 4 lanes.  Get into the right through lane.  McDonalds is on your right.  Continue south on 169, (uphill) one more block, to Witte Rd. Turn right on Witte Rd.  The Community Center is about 7/10 mile on your left.  Go around the first roundabout. The Library is to your right. Take the 3rd turn, which puts you onto SE 248th, next to the Community Center entrance.  Park anywhere ... there is LOTS of parking.  See you there!

From I-90, take exit 25, onto Rt. 18.  Get off at the Maple Valley exit (Rt 169), turn right.  At the second traffic light, turn right (south) onto Maple Valley Hwy.  You'll pass the McDonalds in one block, then follow the I-405 directions.
