JUNE MEETING
Casual summer begins with
the June meeting. That means
time to socialize and share tips,
tall tales and finds with each
other. Hopefully hurricane season
will be just right for metal
detecting, but not having to deal
with window protection or storm
clean up.
JOIN US EARLY AT P.A. BBQ!
Join fellow club members for dinner
in the back room of P.A. BBQ at
5:15 p.m. before the meeting. Dutch
treat!

NEW CLUB BLOG
John Lobota has started a club
blog. Your input and support is
necessary
for
it
to
work.
There is no limit to the number of
stories, articles, links to treasure
stories, videos or contributions of
any sort. We can discuss some
guidelines at the next meeting. Let's
make it exciting, something the club
can be proud of and fun. Something
to do when we are not out swinging
the coil.

ONGOING CLUB PROJECTS
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.

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.

HAVE DETECTOR, WILL TRAVEL

The 2013 Central Florida
Sunshine Shootout & Relic Hunt

TCAS HUNT
Four members traveled to Wabasso on March 9 for the
26th Annual Benefit Hunt

Ten club members traveled to Orlando on May 4 to
join another 140 hunters from Florida, Washington state,
Ohio, Indiana, California, Texas and North Carolina. This
is the first annual hunt that was organized by the Central
Florida Metal Detecting Club. Kellyco and Minelab
partnered with them to help make the day and prizes extra
special. The weather was rainy the first half of the day, but
that didn't stop the eager participants. Kellyco started off
with a warm up hunt in a sandy area. Linda Bennett and
Kathy Marro found tokens for a digger. Pete Schneider
and Karen Larson won 1 oz silver rounds in the raffle
prizes. Three other hunts - painted penny hunt (awards for
top hunters); silver hunt and relic hunt. Smokey Bones
provided the lunch.

TIP FROM JIM SHARP:
Get Task Force Certified!

Pete Schneider

The Task Force for Metal Detecting Rights stands by their
mission of promoting and defending your right to enjoy the
recreational hobby of metal detecting on public use lands and
waterways. An important part of that mission includes educating
the public on responsible practices within our hobby, including
the Detectorists Code of Ethics.

MAY MINUTES

On May 8th members and guests of the Gold Coast
Treasure meant in our new meeting location, the Science
Museum located on Dreyer Trail in West Palm Beach
(across from the old location). Bob, the evening custodian,
greeted everyone at the door and immediately made us
feel like special guests! He escorted the early arrivals to
an auditorium with plush chairs, a stage, sound system and
the works. Then the work started for Bob and those
arriving early! Tables were arranged in the hallway for
the greeting of the membership and guests.
Amy Hamedl graciously volunteered to help Gail
Hoskins with the greeting and selling of the door prizes
and 50/50 raffle. Marge and Paul Hamlin showed up early
with delicious treats, as well as several other members
(sorry I honestly was so busy with setup inside the
meeting room that I did not see who donated what, but it
was all wonderful!). KUDOS to all who helped with the
finger foods and the setup! Everyone was impressed with
the luxury of the new meeting place! The bathrooms were
virgin (ever been in a public one that just opened less than
an hour before the meeting)!
President Gary McNew opened our meeting explaining
that the Secretary (me) had forgotten to bring the Agenda
for the meeting so it was going to be a bit caotic. Vice
President, Frank Nash, added three points to his contest
tally for three guests and an extra point for a new member
(a point for every guest and two points for a new member,
accumulated monthly for the possible winning of a 2014
membership or a Silver Dollar, your choice). A discussion
was held regarding the disappearance of the Coin Cache
and a decision was made to discontinue for now and
possibly continue again in the fall.
Former President and long time member Karen Larson
won the 50/50 a grand total of $41! It was good to see
Karen, she now lives in North Carolina.
Cheryl Petenbrink fooled everyone with a special hook
in the Mystery Item Stumper contest! June’s Mystery
Stumper will be provided by GARY SPIROCH
VOLUNTEERS are needed each meeting to greet
members and guests, please if you know you are coming,
let someone on the Board know ahead of time. It will
really help the club!
All in all it was a new experience in our meeting place
with no complaints; what I would call a great night!
Respectively Submitted by Jan Smirnow, Secretary
