Starting a new year with the AFACA !

Our 1st Anniversary Meeting of the AFACA.

Well 2005 is here and it is hard to believe that we are starting a new year already. 


Our December "Anniversary Meeting" was the best meeting so far with somewhere around 48 people attending.   I only hope that our little group will grow more and more this year.

The individual highlights of personal finds through out the year was outstanding and to numerous to list. One of my personal favorites was the recovery of the turkeytail cache that Speedy discovered, not to mention the G-10 quad that he found on a Lexington, Ky construction site........ but there were MANY great finds from several members that surface hunt. Along with that..... each new month with new members bringing some of their pieces allowed us to see Fantastic pieces from our area that have been found in the past.

We wish to continue our mission to make the AFACA meetings a place to meet, share, and learn, with an emphases on LEARNING. One of the most rewarding things for me this last year was to see members really GROW in their ability to identify lithic material, classify pieces as to typology, and begin to recognize key signs to authenticity!


  The first year of AFACA has led to many great friendships.  John and I would like to give a special thanks to the "core" members that have made it a point to attend every meeting.  Thanks to Danny Stone, Charlie Lutes, Speedy Denny, David Denny, Hayden Bybee, Jeff Mounts as well as the support from dedicated members such as John Bobbitt, Chris Capley, Rob Farewell, Debbie and Eddy Rassenfoss, Roy McIntosh, and others.   Our membership has grown directly through your dedication to bringing people with you.

Also to  a VERY generous Mr. Bill Miller for providing us a place to meet for the last year
