THE MONTHLY NEWSLETTER OF THE GOLD COAST TREASURE CLUB, INC.
VOLUME 34 NUMBER 6
THE NEXT MEETING WILL BE 7:30 P.M. JUNE 11
AT THE WEST PALM BEACH GARDEN CLUB IN DREHER PARK
IN WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA
OUR CODE OF ETHICS: HAVE PERMISSION AND DO NO HARM
Our board of directors came up with a list of program
ideas that we can “pull out of the hat” during months
when we either don’t have a speaker scheduled or when
unanticipated last minute cancellations occur. Such “round
table format” discussions have been popular with our
members in the past due to their casual structure and
because everyone gets a chance to participate, if they so
desire. Our June 11th meeting will feature a round table
discussion in which members will be encouraged to share
their vacation memories, whether of trips that were
designed around treasure hunting, included limited
hunting, or that included no hunting whatsoever. It’s up to
you. After all, this is YOUR meeting, so share with us
whichever vacation memories you wish to share. All we
ask is that individual stories be kept brief so that all who
wish to participate will have their chance to do so.
We extend our thanks in advance to new members Ed
D’Amato and Tessa Durand for volunteering to provide
the refreshments and to Nikolay Malchev for agreeing to
try to stump us with the Mystery Item this month.
It's time for our summer scavenger hunt. June, July and
August are not only too hot for many of our members to
hunt; these months are also popular for summer vacations.
Starting on June 11, keep track of your finds and mark
them off the scavenger hunt list provided on page eleven.
Bring the list and those items found from June 11 through
September 10 to the September meeting. The top three
scavengers will win prizes.
If you’re interested in water hunting, summer often
brings better conditions for such hunting, plus water helps
keep skin cool. Try it out! Water hunting experts Nikolay
Malchev and Jason Petenbrink are always willing to
share their tips. Want inspiration to try water hunting?
You are urged to attend a South Florida Treasure Hunter’s
Club meeting at the Hollywood Beach Community Center
at 1201 S. Ocean Drive in Hollywood. Their meetings,
which start at 7 p.m., will be held on the first Thursday in
July and August, then the first Monday for each month
thereafter. (Rumor has it that SFTHC members have gills.)
Ben Smith is planning an independent hunt sometime
during the summer. He has obtained a new appliance,
which he will dismantle. He’ll then hide the pieces so we
can find them, and then determine what the appliance is.
JOIN US AT PA BBQ BEFORE THE MEETING!
A group of us get together for dinner at 5:30 p.m. right
before each club meeting as a way to catch up with
friends, old and new. Join us in the back room of Park
Ave. (PA) BBQ in Lake Worth. (Dinner is Dutch Treat.)
Park Ave. BBQ & Grille
2401 North Dixie Hwy (US 1)
Lake Worth, Florida
Please remember to return books, DVDs and tapes that
you checked out from the GCTC library last month!
