Australia's largest lapidary organisation. Dedicated to our members and to facetors all over the world.

Message from the President

Paul Sabolta

After much thought and consideration of the current Covid-19 pandemic the AFG Board has taken the decision that the risks are too great to proceed with the 2020 Muster in September.

With the recent re-emergence of the virus in some Victorian “hot spots’ the risk of outbreaks in other regions along with the logistics of social distancing, travel restrictions, group gatherings and willingness of members to attend has far outweighed the pros to continue.

The Faceting Courses will still continue as the low numbers of participants and tutors allows for protocols to be adequately controlled. John Broadfoot, the co-ordinator of these courses has strongly conveyed all requirements to participants.

Your health and others around you is of the utmost priority. Do not become complacent, take every precaution and if you suspect you have any flu like symptoms, seek medical advice urgently.

Here’s looking forward to a brighter future throughout the remainder of the year and into 2021.

Stay safe everyone
