When was this planned?
I can't make it. It's the same day the Guide is doing the Sapphire thing in SF.

Barbra, I'm sorry. :( It was a lucky opportunity for us. That's why I'm posting it here, so that people who will be in the area can attend. Interested people don't have to be alumni members, but I suggest registering before it sells out. :)

Vincent gave a wonderful presentation, I only wish we weren't booted off campus at 9pm as it seemed like he was just getting warmed up :)

Paul, I agree! Vincent wore Afghan dress and gave a magnificent talk. Afghan sapphires that resemble Kashmir stones, but high in Tungsten. If only he could get to the mine to take field samples!
