History and Structure of Club
The Quartzsite Roadrunners Gem & Mineral Club was established in 1968 and incorporated in the state of Arizona as a non-profit corporation. We are governed by a board of 7 officers - President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and 3 Trustees. Elections are held each year. Trustees serve for three years, and all other officers are elected each year.
Our membership has grown each year and was over 800 members in recent years. Our club facilities have also grown and we now have 6 different main shop areas and over a dozen classes for you to choose from. In the 2010/2011 season we completed renovation on our multi-purpose room and hold most of our classes in that room. During the 2012/2013 season we completed an expansion of our lapidary shop.
All positions within the club are volunteer. To get involved as a volunteer contact one of the Board members or take a look at the list of volunteer needs listed under the Volunteer Help link. Our club survives on the gracious contributions of time and talent received from our volunteers.
During the season we engage in several social events including Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner, and pancake breakfasts. Several guest speakers are planned each year for presentations at our weekly meetings. Members also hold a monthly tailgate session in conjunction with our pancake breakfast where we sell rock, cabs or other items to those in attendance.
The club is also involved in several community activities including parade floats, highway clean-up and funding scholarships for local students going on to college.
