    June 2018 Finds of the Month

    Another month gone, another month inching towards summer. The flowers are in bloom, the birds singing, the insects are biting, and the fossils are calling. Time to get out there and make the find of a lifetime. Or maybe, just a Find of the Month. ********************************************************************************************** As a test, I am going to create a new title for anyone who PM's me, and asks for one. I am just wondering if anyone actually reads these things, or if I should just give up on them. Remember...PLEASE carefully read ALL of t
  3. The end of the 2010's are rapidly approaching. The first FOTY was held in 2010, nearly 10 years ago now. With the 2020's nearly upon us, we have almost 10 exquisite winners of FOTY in each category of the contest. The question now: Will there be a decade contest? Such a decision would probably be the hardest we Fossilers will ever make if it does turn out to be something in 2020. It would probably be the most competitive contest the forum has ever seen, and would be very exciting to see. Will it happen?
  4. Spring is coming to the Northern Hemisphere, and with it, more conducive Fossil Hunting Weather! Post up your finds as they enter your collection this month! ************************************************************* Remember...PLEASE carefully read all of the rules below, ... make sure you include all the required information, in the requested format, and submit your fossil! If you have a question about a possible entry, please send me a PM. Please pay special attention to Rule #5: Before and After Preparation photos must be submitted for Pr
  5. March is coming in like a Lion, for some of us in the Northeastern US. The pounding rain insures we won't be fossil-hunting for a few days, at the very least! But others around the country or world can get out there and make some fantastic finds. I suggest you do so! ************************************************************* Remember...PLEASE carefully read all of the rules below, ... make sure you include all the required information, in the requested format, and submit your fossil! If you have a question about a possible entry,
  6. Well, the Groundhogs have spoken, - 6 more weeks of Winter are in store for North America. Not the best of hunting weather, but we do have some hardcore folks who go out, no matter the temperatures or ground/water conditions! I salute all of you who do go out, and find amazing things in the winter. For those of you who have finished prep in a nice warm lab, or hunted for microfossils by the roaring fire, it is time to post up whatever you have found or completed prepping. Read the rules carefully, and post away! ****************************
  7. A new year is upon us! While many of us suffer the wrath of winter, others are lucky enough to enjoy more seasonable collecting weather. Those who are able to hunt should get out there and get to it! Those who can hunt the spoil piles of their workshops should do so. Those micro fossil matrices that are in the back of the garage should be brought out to the light, and get gone through. No matter how you come about it, it is time once again to enter your submissions for Fossil of the Month, for January, 2018! ********************************************************
  8. Snow has started in some northern climes, effectively putting an end to 2017's fossil hunting season for some. Others in more southerly climes are getting back into the swing of things after a long rainy season with limited hunting opportunites. The change in weather means a transition to preparation for some. So whether you are hunting now, or preparing now, if you find something amazing, enter it into the December Fossil of the Month Contest. *************************************************** Remember...PLEASE carefully read the rules below,
  9. Ah, ... September, ... schools, back in session, ... leaves getting ready to start their changes, ...pumpkin spice ... everything... As summer wanes, we hope that Ma Nature gives us some "Indian Summer" to be able to hunt for and collect our treasures. Get out there while the getting is still good - find that worthy fossil and post it here. "Winter is coming". *********************************** Remember...carefully read the rules below, ... make sure you include all the required information, and submit your fossil! If yo
  10. As summer marches along, opportunities to find more fossils abound. Be it from a creek, quarry, river, beach, or cliff side, you are all bound to find something amazing. Please post your best Find of the Month - everyone who posts here has something to be proud of. ************************************* Remember...carefully read the rules below, make sure you include all the required information, and submit your fossil! If you have a question about a possible entry, please send me a PM. Please pay special attention to Rule #5: Before and After Prepara

    Wisconsin Cambrian Fossil Mystery

    Wisconsin Cambrian fossils in sandstone (aprox. 492 million years). Sharply defined rings. Very circular. Not irregular shaped like jellyfish. Any thoughts? Plus, If you can come up with a really good answer, you might get $500 Okay......The fossils aren't mine. They were found by amateur geologists Jerry Gunderson and Ron Meyer. They are part of a contest being done by the University of California Riverside. They are asking for people to prepare explanations for these fossil/geological features. And the best answer gets $500. (Or the best answers get to split the amount.) More details her

    Where Are All...

    ...the keen, discerning clever, perspicacious members of the Fossil Forum? The brief attention of those persons is needed in the Forum's "contest" section.

  16. It would seem that some Forum members do not routinely visit the "lower reaches" of the Forum's menu. This is just a heads up that there is a contest currently in play. It's under the "General Category," subcategory "Contests," of course. If you have any interest in the expressive arts. or are just plain greedy (like snolly); check it out! There are fabulous prizes at stake and the occasional clever repartee.

    A Hybrid Post

    I'm posting in the "General" section. This post contains several vaguely related topics. I hope that this placement will give it the most exposure to folks that may be interested and/or informed by the content. Covered are: Praise, Prep, Photography and Proposal. Praise. Forum member, xonenine recently promoted a poetry contest. I was the lucky, fortunate "winner." He awarded a trove of trilobites that he had collected. Eldredgeops rana, Penn Dixie Quarry, Hamburg, NY, Mid-Devonion, Windom Shale. Two are pictured below. His effort added a fun element to the Forum and it was a pleasant divers
