Recently the club held a field trip onto the Rangitata River to look for agates. The finds were fairly minimal, but a nice day was had by all on the river.
In January 2014, our club members, John Taylor and Owen Swann discovered a huge log of fossil wood in the Canterbury foothills. The following photos show the effort it took to get it out. We estimate the weight to be about 400kg. Click on a thumbnail to view the full size picture.
