ONGOING CLUB PROJECTS

MARCH 23 JUPITER HUNT

Our club collects eye glasses, foreign coins,
miscellaneous items of costume jewelry/tokens/metal toys,
pull tabs, and empty ink cartridges. Give Jan Smirnow or
Linda Bennett your donations.

18 members showed up to hunt the 4.47 acres that once
held an old house and just recently had been a nursery
before being put up for sell. Most of the area had lots of
fill added that included small rocks and stones that made
digging very difficult. Only clad coins found. But it was
still a success in that members took frequent breaks to
talk with each other and exchange tips.

CHALLENGE LEVELS
Do you enjoy a good challenge? If so, then you should
join the quest to master the five challenge levels! This fun
program offers a coin reward simply for finding a specific
group of targets (much like a scavenger hunt) and showing
those finds to the hunt master (Linda Bennett). You can
find information about the challenge levels in your new
member folder or at club meetings. For questions or
explanations, come early to a meeting and speak with
Linda.
