2018 Calendar of Events:

That's right, you don't have to plan or be invited to a private Mobile Mining Experience program or event to be able to take advantage of the great programs, activities, and products we offer. Why not come out to one of our many “open to the public” events we have throughout the year. NOTE: Many of our "open to the public" events and programs we will be set up at may involve an entry fee to the facility such as Clarks Elioak Farm, The Howard County Fair, and others...

2018 GTC/MME Open House:
 

  

2018 GTC/MME Open House:  Announcement

Warehouse address: 9639 DR Perry RD, suite 202s, Ijamsville MD 21754. This is between RT 270 & RT 355 just south of Urbana, MD)

Important notes: This is a warehouse at loading dock level that is sadly not handicap accesable. The only access is via stairs and some of our isle ways could be a bit to narrow for wheel chair access. We do regret this inconvenience and will do whatever we can to accommodate / help you overcome this issue

Well, there is good news and bad news to report… First the bad news. Sadly, we were unable to secure the second warehouse / suite for this year’s Open House which have done for the past several years. This does create some major issues and force some pretty big changes to our plans, which I will go over shortly. However, I want to get to the good news first, and that is we are extremely excited to announce that 2018 GTC/MME Open House IS STILL ON and in many ways will be better than ever!

As for the open house itself, the biggest changes will be the lack of access to restroom facilities (which we are still trying to work on), the need to reduce the number of guests that we will be able to accommodate per session, and a significant reduction in display space which will likely prevent us from being able to set up most is any of our educational displays. However, we have recently secured nearly 20,000 lbs.!. So, there will be even more minerals, rocks, and fossils available for purchase then we have ever had for our Open House and it will all be at crazy low pricing!

For safety and security reasons, as well as assuring the best possibly experience for our guests, we must limit the number of guests that attend each session. Therefore, reservations are required, and they are once again free! However, with the great challenges GTC/MME has faced this year, including around $50,000 in losses due the theft alone this year, we will have a donation box set up. We badly need your support to help fund significant updates and improvements to our educational displays and programs and a possible move into a new warehouse facility / geosciences education and activity center. Whatever you can do to help support our efforts is VERY appreciated and will be put towards our goal to inspire “kids of all ages” in the sciences, but this is in no way a requirement to attend.

How to make your reservations:
Below are the sessions that we will be holding. To place your reservation, we have once again created a special (and temporary) event email address just for the open house, openhouse@MMErocks.com.

I want to personally thank you all for your friendship and support through what has been by far our most challenging year to date. I know my entire team is looking forward to seeing you all at this year’s open house, which is sure to be a real "rocking good time". This Open House is both a special way to say thank you and wish you all the best this holiday season. However, this is also a very critical fund raising effort too. We really need your help and support more than ever!

Tom Cummins, Founder & CEO
