GMSVP - Gem and Mineral Society of the Virginia Peninsula
Our meetings are held the first Thursday of each month except June and December at 7:00 pm at Sandy Bottom Nature Park in Hampton, VA. The December meeting is replaced by a pot luck Christmas party/banquet at the normal meeting time. In May or June we have a Saturday cookout/workshop at Sandy Bottom Park in the Lakeside Pavilion all day long. The club furnishes the charcoal, hot dogs, drinks, ice and paper products. Bring a covered dish and something to grill if hot dogs are not your thing. The park closes at sundown but the gate off Big Bethel Road is left open on our meeting nights so people can get to the meeting.
Directions: Take exit 261(Hampton Roads Center Parkway) off of I-64; follow to the first stop light (Big Bethel Rd.) and turn right. Entrance to the park is a short distance on the left. Follow road to the Visitor's Center.
