President Nash started the March meeting at 7 p.m.
(NEW STARTING TIME FOLKS)
He promptly introduced our Guest speaker Dr. Stephen
Kajiura from the Biological Department of the Florida
Dr. Kajiura presented a very
informative slide show. His statistics informed the
membership of the migration pattern of our visiting
10,000 plus sharks off the beaches of Palm Beach County.
He explained why people are attacked due to the visibility
of the water, i.e. the further south one goes the clearer the
water and therefore less attacks. He further explained the
pattern is mainly comprised of male sharks and appears to
be extending due to the warming of the water. The
females appear to be birthing further North, an oddity,
perhaps explained by the necessity of slower traveling by
the female due to pregnancy. He further showed just how
close the sharks are to the shoreline; real close!

EIGHTH ANNUAL TREASUREHUNTERS
Saturday April 30th
Pennwood Motor Lodge
Anyone that has been to these cookouts before knows that
these cookouts are a great time and I know I look forward to
attending each year, catching up with old friends and making
new ones, hearing all the great treasure hunting stories(true and
false) and making plans for the upcoming season.
There will be food, drinks and treasure to be had. There will
be some beer but for the most part you will need to bring your
own adult beverages. I'm hoping to have a treasure raffle, so if
enough people bring some cool treasure items to raffle off we
can do that. I would also like to have a treasure swap meet;
bring your treasure hunting related gear or items to sell or swap
and a table to set everything on.
Anyone that can send pre-cookout cash/check/money order
donations to help with the food and misc costs please do so. I
can tell you that in the past too much of the load was placed on
one person. The more I get the better this cookout will be!!!
Here is my address to mail your donation to ....my address has
changed since last year!!!
