  3. Well I was able to attend Pomona from 10 to 1:15 on Saturday. Bill Southern and Kevin Hogland combined their individual half-hour programs from 10:30 to 11:30 and together they smoothly captivated the those in attendance, WOW it was truly A+. Before their program I had time to drop off a box of books to John Jones of JOBE and another package of assorted Acton Manuals to the PLP Booth.... Then from 11:30 to 1:15 it was rush-rush to see most of the booths such as ''the gold lady," Valley Prospectors(which I'm a member of), and various GPAA chapters (At the Highland chapter there was a tray of butterscotch balls that I could not resist!). Then it was nearly time to leave and we stopped off at the ICMJ booth to banter with Chris Ralph and his dad. Unfortunately his program was at 2:00. After a quick pit-stop we were out the door by 1:15 and Mike returned me to my home and rushed out to work at 2:00 PM as a aerospace engineer for Boeing... jim

  5. come on; don't be shy as the Pomona show is popular with the local folks and if they attend, they will updated with local information on various facets of information that lead to being more successful in whatever subjects that you are either interested in or wishing to become your specialty... The speakers are quite selection, such as notable author and successful White's dealer, James McCullouch; or associate editor Chris Ralph and Bill Southern of Nugget Hunter's forum, and about 10 others. Plus there will dealers who only have a booth at local shows such as Pomona
