2013 is the 40 ANNIVERSARY
of the Gold Coast Treasure Club.
In 1973, Ted Rudd, Frank Mosely and Howard Striblin
founded this club. The next year will be spent celebrating
this event. In each newsletter, trivia and other events from our
club history will be profiled. Plans are in process for a
scrapbook that will display the older history. Club history
since 1995 is well documented.
The records from the 70’s are non-existent, but some
newsletters from the 80’s are in the club files. If any
members have pictures or written history from the 70’s and
80’s, please contact Linda Bennett. Members that are still
with the club from the 80’s are Margaret Weller, Irving
Smith, Wayne and Nancy Stephens, Betty and Jerry Laur,
and Ed Mitchell.
BURIED COIN CACHE - $25 REWARD!
Gary Spiroch found the coin cache and claimed his $25 at
the Holiday Party. The cache was found buried at Bryant Park
in Lake Worth. Thanks to the clues provided by Wayne and
Future coin cache burials will be discussed by the board.
Members can give them input if the coin cache should be
continued. The same small number of members take time to
look for the item.
Next club hunt will be on January 20 with time and place
to be decided at the January meeting. For those not at the
meeting, this information will be emailed. Members with no
email access will have to call Linda for the information.
The next club raffle is a Kodak waterproof camera
(donated by John Presslein) and a book "Historic Photos of
PB County". There will be two winners. Spots are $1 each.

WINNER OF THE BROKEN SCOOP AWARD
Winners of these awards were nominated by fellow
members for their “dubious“ actions during the past
Steve Hamedl received a telescoping pronged
stick to carry while water hunting. The handle is
red so he can wave and hopefully attract
attention when he gets over his head in the water
and needs help. The sharp prongs can be used to
discourage underwater predators or to roast
marshmallows on the beach.
By popular vote, Jack and Jason Petenbrink
received the honor of winning the fourth Annual Broken
Scoop Award for their dubious action of not being
prepared for metal detecting.
Jack and Jason will have to display this award in a
prominent place at their home until the next Holiday
Party in 2013. Hopefully they 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
Jack and Jason Petenbrink was given various
tools to use for sand recovery. These items are
to be kept in their car at all times to prevent a
wasted trip to the beach. It was reported that
these two traveled to South Beach, a 1 ½ hr
drive, only to discover that their scoops were not
with their metal detectors. These items can also
be used by visitors for building sand castles at
