    Hello,

    I just joined MMC and am interested in attending the agate hunting field trip on June2nd. I’m not sure that my application will be processed in time to register. If there is room, I’d love to come! Please email. Thank you!

      Hi Joan! Welcome to the club. I’m guessing if you made it to the field trip page here, you have a username and password to login? If that’s the case, all you need to do is go to where it says Bookings at the bottom of this post and select the number of people that are attending and book the trip.

      Just a couple things to note since you’re new. Please remember a single membership only allows you to attend field trips, and family memberships allow you, your partner, and any children you are a parent or legal gauardian of to attend the field trips. Only club members can attend field trips for insurance and liability reasons. No guests are allowed. Minor children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian on all trips.

      If you have any more questions or have any issues registering for the trip please let me know. You can comment here or email me directly at Tourdirector@minnesotamineralclub.org
      Thanks!
