The Brazoria County Fair is over for another
year. I just unpacked my 2 boxes of Bailer
Shells that I entered this year. Of course it is
pretty easy to unpack when you enter a very
limited number of very large shells! Look for
the results of the judging of the Sea & Shore
Division elsewhere in this newsletter.
Plans are coming together for the 2004 Sea
Shell Searchers Shell Show. I would like to
encourage each of you to take a look at the
show categories and plan to enter this years
show. It doesn't matter if it is one case or a
dozen cases. We hope all of you will want to be
involved. There are several folks who have
cases that would be willing to loan them to you
and even offer suggestions for how to exhibit
all you have to do is let it be known that you
have an interest in exhibiting.
Be sure to make plans to attend the field trips
that have been arranged by our Field Trip
Chairman, Darwin Alder. Some of them are to
familiar locations; others to new locations.
Look for Darwins note about field trips for
