For this month we will take a look at Radium and its use on watch and clock dials/hands, its risks, dealing with it, etc.  If you own vintage items from the 20's up to the 60's there is a chance they have Radium based lume, especially if it's military. Colorado played an important part in the Radium industry from the 1890's through the 1920's. This topic is inspired by a recent presentation on military watches given by Alex Greenberg of the Cherry Creek Watch Company to the Denver RedBar group. The recent book and movie "Radium Girls" by Kate Moore is also relevant.  So bring out your items from this time frame to show off and join us!  

Screen sharing by all participants will be enabled and I have actually scheduled the meeting to start at 11:30am so we can use the first 30 minutes to practice and resolve issues.  Feel free to login at any time.  Also, if you have headphones with a microphone I would suggest using it as your voice quality will be much better and the background noise will be greatly reduced. 

Here is the link to the edited video of last month's meeting.  We spent the first 16 minutes talking about the tentatively scheduled Rocky Mountain Regional at the Boulder County Fairgrounds Saturday July 31/Sunday August 1 2021.
