The Rolling Stone Award

 

| About CCFMS Page | CCFMS Home Page |



This award has been in existence since May 8, 1975, and was donated by the Thunder Bay Lapidary Society. It is a white shield (11" x13") on which is mounted an amethyst stone and is now mounted in its own case with shields from various clubs who have held it mounted on the inside lid. The purpose of this award is to foster inter club visits among members of the CCFMS. This trophy looks good on the front door tables at shows.

To become "owners" of the stone, some simple rules exist. Rules:

  1. The visitation must be to a function scheduled by the Host Club ( the current owner of the Stone)
  2. The visiting club (club "claiming" the Stone) must have the following (1996 revision)
  • 2 members if the distance to the host club is 500 miles or more
  • 4 members if the distance is 100-499 miles
  • 6 members if the distance is 40-99 miles
  • 8 members if up to 40 miles

In the event two or more organizations arrive at the same time to claim the award, the organization that gave the first notice of interest shall receive it.
