Gordon Gastil will be presented with the Thomas Dibblee Medal for his dedication to field mapping at an event hosted by the San Diego Association of Geologist at the Chula Vista Nature Center on San Diego Bay on August 21, 2002.
This is a call to all of you that have been in the field with Gordon, went on a field trip with him, took a class with him, or were simply inspired by his work. Come and celebrate this event with us. We have an impressive event scheduled with the presenting of the Dibblee Medal, A talk by Gordon on his years of mapping, and some toasting and roasting of this great mans 40 years of life in the field.

As most of you are aware the Dibblee Foundation is in the process of publishing the geologic maps of the 500 quadrangles that Tom mapped. The soon to be released Mount San Antonio Quadrangle will become the R. Gordon Gastil Honorary Map. What many of you may not know is that the Dibblee Foundation is merging with the Santa Barbara Museum of National History and that we will publish 27 maps this year including all of the San Gabriel Mountains.
We are presenting you with a three fold opportunity to 1) honor Gordon for his field mapping and contribution to your development, 2) to help the distribution of field maps of California and 3) to be personally recognized for your contribution on the map and at the presentation ceremony. Personal contributors of $500 and corporate contributors of $1000 will be acknowledged on the printed map. A list of all contributors will be artfully presented to Gordon at the meeting. We are holding the printing of the map until the end of June. We will appreciate your contribution or pledge by that date
