Michael Judy gave a talk about gold panning and sluicing and such at this past Monday night's June 2014 Santa Lucia Rockhounds general meeting. As expected he made me proud in keeping with the program theme for this year of "Sharing Your Passion". I have selected speakers for each month this year to share their particular passion(s) as it relates to the rockhounding a.k.a. amateur geology family of hobbies.
