The annual JPOG show is moving after more than 25 years at the Reno Livestock Exhibition Hall.

The Jackpot of Gems is an annual gem and mineral show that has been held in the Reno area for over 50
years. The show is put on by the Reno Gem and Mineral Society once a year as part of its non-profit 501(C)(3)
commitment to educate people who have an interest in minerals and gems that are so abundant in our State.
RGMS members display over 40 cases of rocks, gems, and minerals. There are demonstrations showing how to
make some of the beautiful things shown in the Display Cases. There is a booth high-lighting florescent features of
some minerals that has been called “nature’s light show”. Expect to learn something new about rocks and minerals
in the State of Nevada. It is a fun hobby to learn about and the Show is enjoyable for the entire family.

There will be raffle tickets available for fabulous prizes. The Wheel of Fortune is a special place for children who spin the wheel to win fun rock and gem
specimens. There are great bargains available in beads, and minerals in the silent auction held every thirty minutes.

Join us this September!
