The Del Mar Fairgrounds will be the location of the San Diego County Fair. The Fair runs from June 8th through July 4th. - open every day except Mondays. The fair will open its doors at 11:00 AM Daily.
At the Gems and Minerals Building, there will be faceting demonstrations - on the Ultra Tec V5 - presented by the San Diego Mineral and Gem Society.
These faceting demonstrations will be held on weekdays, Tuesday through Friday (note: not on the weekends), commencing at 11:00 AM and running until 4:00 PM on each scheduled week day. So, a chance to see the V5 in action - and a chance to talk to the club member, or teacher, who is using it.
>>Faceting Lessons...The San Diego Mineral and Gem Society operates out of Balboa Park in San Diego. The club has a classroom set up, equipped with faceting machines, and offers faceting lessons on a regular basis. If you are interested, check the club's website:www.sdmg.org.
If you are planning ahead - well, now it's not so far ahead - the FFF5 (Franklin Faceters Frolic - 5th annual) is scheduled for next month, July 27th and 28th (Friday and Saturday).

|Introducing.... A New Representative...
|Sayed Adelshah Alawi|
We Welcome....Sayed Adelshah Alawi
Sayed Adelshah Alawi is Ultra Tec's new representative in Afghanistan. He is located in the capital city, Kabul. Sayed is a businessman in Afghanistan, and an experienced Ultra Tec user himself. With this interest, Sayed has been aware of the attention that the gem community has focused on Afghanistan, a result of the extensive gemstone findings there. The very significant deposits of emerald, ruby, kunzite, tourmaline and aquamarine - and other gemstone materials - which in the past were smuggled into neighboring countries and sold as rough - now represent an outstanding opportunity for domestic development in Afghanistan, and, of course, a source of employment and livelihood for its people. We welcome Sayed to the Ultra Tec team - and join him in supporting Afghanistan's rise in the gem world.
