OUR CODE OF ETHICS: HAVE PERMISSION AND DO NO HARM
Since our county escaped major
damage from Hurricane Matthew, we
are hoping that Billy Weinshank will
be able to confirm his calendar to
speak on terrorism and ways we can
combat it in Palm Beach County.
Since he is also a member of the
Palm Beach County (Florida and
FEMA) Community Emergency
Response Team (CERT), his work
schedule may have been rearranged.
Other business items to be
covered at our meeting will be the
committee. This committee will then
present a slate of candidates for the
2017 officers at the November
meeting for election. Officers will
be installed at the end of the Holiday
Party in December.
Also the Holiday party committee
will be looking for volunteers to
organize for our party in December.

least Penny Wilson. Welcome aboard to all! In addition,
Chris Norris attended as a guest. Steve Hamedl, Ingrid

Our Treasurer, Nick Mosca, reported $1540 in the
treasury. Expenses for the month: $300 for six months
rent. The Silver Bar raffle was won by Betty Laur. Plans
are to have another one to raffle in October.
It was decided not to participate in the yard sale with
John and Tammy Lobota and not to have a silent auction
at this time.
Copies of the Florida Liability form, Permission to
Enter Private Land and the GCTC Member Liability form
were discussed and made available to the members.
The hunt for September was voted on for the 18th with 19
members signing up. It was decided to hold it at Carlin
Park in Jupiter.
The 50/50 raffle was won by Amy Hamedl for $20 and
new member Brenda Holland won a set of headphones.
New Member Keith Smith told of his years of metal
detecting, along with various other ventures. Quite
interesting! He and his wife, Barbara Ann, are from the
Richmond, Virginia area and have been involved in
antique auctioning for years. He presently is enjoying
metal detecting the beaches of Florida everyday!

Our September hunt was held at Carlin Park, Jupiter.
The hunt was attended by 21 happy members, all bearing
delicious dishes to share! President Nash gave everyone
a scare by calling in sick but he did manage to show up
with a lot of assistance from his lady friend Laurie and his
son Michael. Frank was bringing the BBQ coal, lighter,
chips, sodas, ice, hot dogs, condiments, and the breakfast
goodies! Needless to say it would have been a real
problem at the last minute to bring what he spent a month
collecting. Kudos go to Frank and family for getting the
job done well!
Jan misinterpreted the signs on the beach and planted
the coins (etc) in the newly formed dunes! Well we got to
hunt for a half an hour and most of the planted goodies
were found, before the lifeguards shut us down! A major
Oops on my part!.
The food was great and honorable mention should go
everyone for being a part of the luncheon. The members
appeared to all have a great time looking at their finds and
enjoying the food.
Special thanks go to Cheryl Petenbrink for helping me
set this hunt up and special thanks to Ingrid Orlando for
helping with the planting! Special recognition goes to the
Chef of the Day, new Member Brenda Holland who single
handed started the charcoal and cooked every dog!.
The nicest part of the BBQ and Hunt was how
everyone was so helpful! Thanks everyone!
