ABOUT OUR CLUB

The Springfield Thunderegg Rock Club has been in existence for several decades; it was due to our Club's efforts that the Thunderegg was designated as Oregon's Official State Rock in 1965.  Meetings are held at the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West "C" Street, in Springfield, Oregon 97477 on the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.  Guests are very welcome.   Donations of collections, specimens or rough materials to the Springfield Thunderegg Rock Club are greatly appreciated.   These donations are either sold to members, or the general public at our annual show in an effort to raise funds for our many philanthropic efforts.  Please contact the club for information at springfieldthundereggclub@gmail.com

The club has provided volunteer instructors for Willamalane's rock shop for many years, However, the two organizations are separate entities.  

The Club holds membership in
*   The American Federation of Mineralogical Societies

*   The Oregon Council of Rock & Mineral Clubs Inc.

Annual Membership Dues are:
$14.00 per person
$20.00 per family (of 2 or more members)

Annual Scholarship to Youth
Rockhounding is a wonderfully healthy outdoor activity for families and we encourage youth participation;  to this end we offer an annual scholarship to a student in our local high schools.
