Hello fellow list members,

Promoting for the 2007 "Meteorites & Dazzling Treasures" Rock Show is in
full steam.


The radio show went fairly well the last weekend, the hour went by pretty
quick. Today, Greg Nowacek of Wichita State University appeared on local ABC
during the lunch time. (Not sure about coverage on other news slots) and NBC
came down and interviewed Kansas Meteorite Society member Jerry Calvert. I
believe CBS ran something as well, but i only have one TV so I don't know
for sure.) In Jerry's interview he talked about Nininger (born here) and the
news story included a photo of him, which was neat. (Not often you see
Nininger in the local news).

Sadly, the local "Renaissance Faire" is also this weekend so I likely miss
it. It is the only place I know you can wear tights and dead animals parts,
while carrying a sword and drinking beer. (Perhaps I can sneek away from the
rock show for a few hours on Saturday?)


I will take this time to remind everyone that the 2007 Kansas Meteorite
Festival is coming up. It will be held July 7th in Haviland, Kansas. As
time gets closer you will be able to find more information at the following


In sort of related news, we are starting work to get olivine from the
pallasite meteorite as the state mineral. Two pallasite strewn fields and
four different pallasites could have made us the Pallasite State...if the
Wheat State wasn't chose long ago.

We are starting a petition at the rock show, and have several helpful to do
such, people already exciting about it. They are moving to make a state
fossil right now as well, so this is good timing.

Clear Skies (from flat and friendly Kansas),
