If you are not a member and are visiting this web site, we hope that you will join us. Come to some of our meetings and visit with our members. We have excellent speakers, presentations, and socializing starting at 7 pm most first Mondays of the month (September to May) in Ricketson Auditorium at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
The doors to the west entrance of the museum will be opened until 7:30. After that they will be locked. These doors have to be guarded while they are unlocked so a WIPS volunteer will be watching the entrance until the program begins. No food or beverages are allowed in this atrium.
For book and literature reviews, articles about paleontology and more,

Got too many rocks?!? Don't have enough rocks or fossils or maps or books ?!? So get out your quality, but unwanted, specimens to enrich someone else's mantel and generate money for WIPS scholarships.
Bid sheets are available on the WIPS website as pdf or xls files.
There are two types of bid sheets this year. We are introducing a bid sheet better suited for books and maps as well as having the usual bid sheet for specimens. Please select the sheets from the bid-sheet list and fill them out completely. If you have any questions about how to fill out the new bid sheets, contact Dan Winester.
WIPS is looking for volunteers to help with set up, tear down, sorting won items, food set up and check out. If you'd like to help or you'd like a pre-assigned seller number, please contact Dan Winester or 303-709-458.Holiday Auction Again this year, we are expecting to fill all the tables in the room with fossils, rocks, maps and other items. And, of course, we are always looking for quality items for verbal or tin-can auctions. Jordan Sawdo has again agreed to be our verbal auctioneer. Dan will be our barker. So set aside Saturday night, December 14th, for the WIPS auction. Bring a friend or two. Bring items for sale. Bring your checkbook.
