If you missed our October meeting, you missed A LOT
of fun! As 30 attendees approached the club house, they
were greeted by a sinister creature rising up out of a
“grave yard,” cobwebs, and other spooky decorations.
Once inside, they were greeted by pirates, metal detecting
monsters, gangsters, ugly old maids, the Great Pumpkin,
and a whole cast of other ghouls and characters.
Our program for the evening, in keeping with the
Halloween theme, was “Tales from the Crypt.” With
lights turned low, members shared scary stories related to
their treasure hunting adventures. Ed D’Amato, dressed
as dashing pirate Captain Jack Sparrow, told of metal
detecting on Juno Beach late one evening under a full
moon when he and a friend saw a circle of women
chanting around a glowing object - a cauldron, perhaps?
Ed cracked: “Are you looking for a sacrifice?” The
women, who apparently took that as an open invitation,
proceeded menacingly toward Ed and his friend, who both
took off running! Other spooky tales were shared. Jim
Sharp found a Voodoo jar buried beneath an old tree, and
Linda Bennett told of a mischievous little girl ghost who
haunts the pediatric wing of the hospital where she works.
Congrats to Ed D’Amato (pirate) and Jan Smirnow
(pumpkin) who TIED for First Place in the Costume
Contest and to Tessa Durand (pirate) for Second Place.
As the party came to an end, president Mindy Spiroch
thanked Stacey deLucia, Jan Smirnow and Ed D’Amato
for bringing the refreshments. Mindy and Gary Spiroch
brought the mystery item this month – a radio antenna.
Gary McNew won – he had the top to one. WTG Gary!
