MAY CLUB HUNT REPORT
Not much to report other than at least 15 attended the 15th
of May hunt at the Kennel Club. It was hot and tough
digging, i.e. a lot of trash! Paul Hamlin reported 59 cents,
some costume jewelry and junk. April Sovich - a few
pennies, mostly real junk. Cheryl Petenbrink - some
change and lots of junk. It was also reported that there
were holes left; Cheryl and April covered what they
saw! Please members I know you know the rules, leave
no evidence of your presence!
Please be advised we are not welcome to metal detect the
properties of the Kennel Club on an individual basis, only as a
scheduled club event with the Kennel Club.
The Kennel Club has enough security problems without us
adding to their having to check each individual on the property!
The plan at this time is to return for another event at a
cooler time! Discussion will be held at the June meeting
regarding another event.
