MARCH MEETING

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
Atlantic University.
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!

March Birthday dollars were collected by Cyndee
Freeman, Marge Hamlin and Jason Petenbrink.
Our Treasurer, Nick Mosca, reported $1503.04 in the
treasury. Membership renewal is $35 plus an additional
$5 late fee (after January 31st). In addition, it was asked
that members join the FDMAC for an additional $5.
FDMAC lobbies for our hobby, they are our watchdogs.
President Nash spoke of a Cruise to Bermuda for ten
days, costs $700 (26th of May through June 4th Carnival
Cruise Lines). Amy Hamedl said there was no charge but
permission is required for metal detecting.
Vern Blausey, Librarian, is back in business.
Arrangements have been made with the Science Center to
retain our library in storage at the Science Center for our
use monthly.
Paul Hamlin stumped the membership with a spark
plug for the Mystery Stumper. Next month Cheryl
Petenbrink will provide the stumper.
John Lobota presented information on his John Prince
Hunt for March 20th.
President Nash spoke of an upcoming hunt for April to
be held at a special place in Jupiter Farms, more to come.
The 50/50 for $41 was won by Jan Smirnow.
As time did not allow, the Scavenger Hunt for March
through April 10th was not mentioned, but it is being held,
so please participate.
Meeting was adjourned at approximately 9 p.m.
Submitted by Secretary, Jan Smirnow

EIGHTH ANNUAL TREASUREHUNTERS
COOKOUT!!!!
Saturday April 30th
Pennwood Motor Lodge
Wabasso, Florida

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!!!

Chuck Graves Jr
350 Woodland Ave Apt 15
Cocoa Beach Fl 32931
