Good Will Ambassadors

Performing Random Acts of Kindness

Each month, the GCTC recognizes members who
provide selfless service to our community. The first time
a member returns an item, that individual receives a metal
detecting pin (handcrafted by Steve Hoskins) to wear on
his or her hat, in addition to a certificate of appreciation.

UNSUNG HEROES 2014
The fifth annual “Unsung Hero” was awarded to Gary
McNew in recognition for returning the most number of
lost items to their rightful owners during 2014. The
plaque, which features the names of all members who
returned items during 2014, will be on display during
future meetings. We salute ALL of our Good Will
Ambassadors for their selfless service to others!

Miami, Florida (AP) -- A ship cannon dating to the
early 18th century has been discovered by a company
doing dredge work to deepen the channel at Miami's port.
News stories in 1919 reported that 14 old Spanish
cannons were discovered in roughly the same area.
Thanks to Gary McNew for the information.

DUBIOUS AWARDS
Winners of these awards were nominated by fellow
members for their “dubious“ actions during the past
year.
 Irving Smith and Allen Mankin showed up
one week early to separate meetings - that is
how much they look forward to club meetings.
 Jerry Laur - voiced his concerns for the new
embroidered club shirts - he has sensitive
nipples and was worried that the backing would
hurt his nipples.
 Linda Bennett didn't practice what she
preached as evidenced on the last club hunt in
which she forgot her beach scoop. Allen loaned
her one of his spare.
 Jan Smirnow spent one beach hunt eating sand
because she didn't watch the waves and kept
being swept off her feet. Fortunately her
hunting partner, Paul Hamlin, rescued her scoop
that had been swept away.

THANK YOU TO OUTGOING HUNTMASTER
Linda Bennett presented with Silver 8 Reale

By popular vote, Jerry Laur again received the
honor of winning the Sixth Annual Broken Scoop
Award.. It was a tight vote - he beat out Linda by 2
votes.
Jerry will have to display this award in a prominent
place at her home until the next Holiday Party in 2015.
Hopefully he will be able to pass along the award at that
time to another member.
The scoop was donated by Kevin Reilly of Reilly's Treasured
Gold, Inc in 2008.

2015 PLANS FOR CELEBRATING
300TH ANNIVERSARY
Years of planning are coming together toward marking the
300th anniversary of the July 31, 1715, sinking of the Spanish
treasure fleet off the eastern coast of Florida during a storm.
Kicking off the commemoration will be a selected display of
recovered sunken treasure and artifacts from the State. The
items will be exhibited Jan. 8 to 11, 2015, at the Florida United
Numismatists Convention at the Orange County Convention
Center in Orlando.
Thursday, Jan 8: 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Educational Seminar. “The Loss of the 1715 Plate Fleet,”
by Ben Costello. 2015 is the 300th anniversary of the historic
Spanish fleet loss off the east coast of Florida. Who better to
discuss this event than Ben Costello, a director of the 1715 Fleet
Society? Mr. Costello will detail the “hows, whys and whens”
of one of the most significant events in numismatic history!
Thursday, Jan 8: 1130-12:30
Educational Seminar. “A Sunken Ship is a Time Capsule:
The 1715 Plate Fleet Wreck,” by Peter Cowdry. The speaker
is the current educator in residence at the Museum of Florida
History in Tallahassee. His program will focus on a range of
issues including what was on these ships of the great fleet
wreck, the degree to which they’ve been preserved, and the
navigational problems faced by the fleets of that era.
