Ad Hoc Tumbling Group

A Special GMS Group
for People Interested in Tumbling Rocks

The Ad Hoc Tumbling Group Meets
Third Tuesday
Every Month

Many people, young and old, begin their rockhound journeys by tumbling stones. It is a great way to get into the hobby and there is so much to learn from tumbling.

The GMS Ad Hoc Tumbling Group meets every month via Zoom to talk about all things tumbling. If you are interested, you must be a member of GMS, and all members are encouraged to submit ideas for topics to cover.

The group also sponsors and runs an annual rock tumbling contest for beginners and advanced tumblers. Winners are announced at our annual Mother's Day Weekend Rock Show.
