The Sunday Evening Program
at The Westward Look
The Sunday Evening Program is one of the best opportunities for people to learn, first-hand, some of the real-life stories and perspectives behind these incredible minerals. Each year, we assemble a special panel of seasoned experts to share their thoughts, stories and experiences in their pursuit of minerals.
Mineral-collecting pioneers, such as Edward Swoboda, Peter Bancroft, Bill Larson, David Wilber, Charlie Key, and many more have graced our stage. After the presentation, we open up the floor to questions and answers and always get lively discussions going. This quickly becomes a standing-room-only event, so get here early!
**THE FEBRUARY 6, 2022 EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED**
Our annual “Sunday Evening Program” in the resort’s Sonoran Ballroom is open to all starting with a social hour at 6:30pm and the presentation at 7:30pm.
As every year at our program, the American Heritage Mineral Award will be presented prior to the talks.
We strongly believe that mineral shows provide not just a setting for procurement of the specimens to make your collection grow, but a venue to learn, meet potential mentors (or be one) and see, touch and feel nature's art in real time.
Our mission is to support the hobby in any positive way we can and to create more collectors of fine mineral specimens.
