GARY McNEW'S TIP OF THE MONTH
“The Tee Pee Effect”
Have you ever gone to hunt your favorite beach on
a day with a strong off shore wind? If so you may have
seen something that I like to call the Tee Pee effect.
This is when there is a small solid object like a seashell
setting on top of the sand and the wind blows all the
sand from around it away and leaves the shell resting
on top of a Tee Pee or column of sand. When you see
these Tee Pees, hunt these areas, because there has
been two or more inches of sand blown away from this
section of beach. The average detector will detect a
coin sized object 8-10 inches deep, so when two or
more inches of sand has been blown away, those coins
and rings that were formerly 12 inches and deeper
could now be in a detectable range. So grab your
detector, get out to the beach, brave the winds and have
fun! Happy Hunting!

CLUB HUNT
Hollywood Beach had been packed with tourists the
week preceding our club hunt. But the findings were
slim for the nine members who arrived early Saturday,
January 30. A two hour hunt produced some change
and some costume jewelry. Irving Smith found the
most change with Gary McNew coming in a close
second. Kathy Ayon found various pieces of costume
jewelry. Gary also found a costume jewelry item often
labeled by treasure hunters as "nitro."
Six members had brunch after the hunt. Jerry Laur
and Gary McNew enjoyed watching the exercise
group on the beach - especially a well endowed young
woman. The women in the group had their own eye
candy to check out - an attractive male instructor!

CONTEST COMING IN AUGUST!
“WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR FINDS”

Back by popular demand, our August meeting will
once again test the limits of GCTC members’ creativity
through a little contest we like to call “What to Do with
Your Finds!" Members will be challenged to submit
entries made out of things they’ve found while
detecting. In years past, we’ve seen some pretty
creative entries and we expect this year to be just as
interesting. Silver prizes will be awarded in three
categories: Most Creative, Best Display and Most
Unusual. So, start thinking about what YOU can do to
give your finds new life! Members are not limited to
the number of entries that they can submit. We hope
everyone will participate this year in this fun contest.
