Rock and Mineral Receivers

NESTA arranges for a local person to receive your shipment and see that the raffle specimens arrive safely at the NESTA Rock Raffle. The receivers for each NESTA Rock Raffle are listed below. Please send items directly to them at the address indicated. Be sure to allow enough time for shipping. If you are personally bringing the specimens to the conference please contact Parker Pennington IV at p.o.pennington@gmail.com to arrange on site delivery. It is also VERY important for Parker to know what is coming so he can adjust what he sends.
