OUR CODE OF ETHICS: HAVE PERMISSION AND DO NO HARM

JANUARY 2011 MEETING

2010 ANNUAL BEST FINDS
It’s time once again for the much-anticipated
ANNUAL BEST FINDS CONTEST. This is one of the
highlights of the year, so we hope every member will
participate. Bring your best finds recovered during 2010
for the Best Finds Contest. The entries must have been
found between January 2010 and December 2010 and
while you were a member of the GCTC.
Categories will be: Best Platinum Jewelry; Best
Gold; Best Gold with Stones; Best Silver; Best
Costume Jewelry; Best Toy; Best Token; Best Foreign
Coin; Most Unusual; and Oldest American Coin.
Winners of the 10 major categories will each receive a
silver half-dollar and a certificate. The American coin
category will not be divided into subcategories. All nonwinning entries will be eligible for a drawing for a special
surprise provided by Hunt Master Linda Bennett. Each
member is allowed one entry per category. Winners are
decided by the same voting system that we use for the
Monthly Best Finds Contest. Voting on the Oldest
American Coin will not be necessary for obvious reasons.
The Good Will Ambassadors Unsung Hero trophy will
be unveiled, naming the top winner and all members who
have returned items to their rightful owners during 2010.
We thank January’s Mystery Prize volunteer, Gary
McNew, who will try to stump us again and Ed D’Amato
who has volunteered to provide refreshments.
JOIN US EARLY AT P.A. BBQ!
Join fellow club members for dinner in the back room
of P.A. BBQ at 5:15 p.m. before the meeting. Dutch treat!

Park Avenue BBQ & Grille

JANUARY CLUB HUNT
The first club hunt for 2011 will be held on Saturday,
January 22 from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Meet at 8:00 a.m.
at Dreher Park South – just look for the club banner and
eager faces. The entrance is on the south side of Summit
Blvd. (Our club meets at Dreher Park North.) The club
will provide coffee and doughnuts. Bring a chair to relax
in while having refreshments prior to a wild hunt.

JIM WARNKE MEMORIAL HUNT/PICNIC
Mark the date of Sunday, February 20 on your calendar
for our Annual Hunt/Picnic. More details will be available
in the February newsletter and at the February meeting.

MONTHLY BEST FINDS CHANGE
The budget for the Monthly Best Finds prizes has been
strained due to the price of silver reaching $30 per ounce.
As a result, the board has voted to change the prizes that
will be awarded for first and second place. In addition to a
certificate, first place winners will earn a silver dime and
second place winners will earn an old American coin.

2010 HOLIDAY PARTY
Approximately 75 members joined us for our Annual
Holiday Party. Starting at 5:00 p.m. on December 9th,
everyone pitched in to help transform our usually sparse
clubhouse into a winter wonderland. Everywhere we
looked, decorations were being strung, punch was being
poured, desserts were being displayed, and numerous
dishes were being set out. The tables were teeming with
members’ favorite family recipes, including carrot soufflé,
corn pudding, turkey dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy,
stuffing, string bean casserole, ham, pulled pork, turkey,
cranberries and so much more!
We were pleasantly surprised when our good friends at
PA BBQ (Park Avenue BBQ Grille) in Lake Worth
generously donated 10 pounds of delicious pulled pork
and sauce! Another fun surprise came in the form of a
yummy chocolate sheet cake sent courtesy of Chicago
club member Bruce Marta, who was unable to attend.
Every family received a gift, beautifully wrapped by
Amy and Steve Hamedl and Jan Smirnow. Paul and
Marge Hamlin of Seashore Gifts of Lantana placed
secret tags on several of the wrapped presents, earning the
winners a special prize. Four lucky members each won an
enormous Australian Trumpet Sea Shell.
Special thanks go to Jan Smirnow for organizing the
Dessert Contest and prizes, Mindy Spiroch for serving as
emcee, Linda Bennett for the endless hours she puts in
each year, Steve Hoskins for taking all those wonderful
pictures, Ed D’Amato for decorating outside with holiday
lights, Elayne Lynch and Heather McNew for setting up
the food tables, Karl and Linda Bennett, Gail Hoskins,
Karen Larson, and Elayne Lynch for setting up the
tables and decorations, Gary McNew for the sound
system, and Stacey deLucia for the holiday music and
trees. It took a great committee to have a first-rate party!

GOOD WILL AMBASSADORS

Performing Random Acts of Kindness
The GCTC recognizes members who provide selfless
service to our community. The first time a member returns
an item, that individual receives a metal detecting pin
(handcrafted by Steve Hoskins) to wear on his or her hat,
in addition to a certificate of appreciation. Future returns
are recognized by additional certificates. Kudos to all club
members who serve as “Ambassadors of Good Will” and
enhance the public’s perception of our hobby!

DUBIOUS AWARDS
Winners of these awards were nominated by fellow
members for their “dubious” actions during club events.





Jack Saint received waterproof Band-Aids to
prevent bothersome nipple irritation after wearing
a wet suit while metal detecting in the water.

SPECIAL THANKS FOR HOSTING
A CLUB HUNT IN 2010
Engraved calculators were awarded to Ben Smith, Jim
Sharp and Paul Hamlin in appreciation for hosting club
hunts during 2010. Thank you, guys, for your hard work!

Irving Smith was recognized for the clues he
provided to locate the buried coin cache. Irving
received a red sprinkler head to remind him that
this coin cache represents the longest running and
most frustrating set of clues in the history of the
Gold Coast Treasure Club!

*******************************************

Pint-Sized Pirates Danny Mooney, Pauline Nash
and Radina Malchev each received holiday stockings.

*******************************************
IT’S A TOUGH JOB…

******************************************
WINNER OF THE BROKEN SCOOP AWARD
By popular vote, Jack Saint received the honor of
winning the third Annual Broken Scoop Award for his
dubious, but great tip for all water hunters who wear wet
suits: use Band-Aids to prevent that pesky problem with
nipple irritation.
Jack will have to display this award in a prominent
place in his home until the next Holiday Party in 2011.
Hopefully he’ll be able to pass along the award at that
time to another member. The scoop was donated by Kevin
Reilly of Reilly's Treasured Gold, Inc. in 2008.

…but somebody’s gotta do it! And for the past two
years, that person has been Mindy Spiroch, who has
faithfully served as GCTC President. We thanked and
recognized Mindy for her years of service and then we
welcomed new President, Gary McNew.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN 2010
For the 15th consecutive year, GCTC members
supported Home Safe, a haven for abused, abandoned,
and neglected children. A big thank you goes to everyone
who - despite the grim economy – helped us raise $260!
Once again, members collected and donated cell
phones and ink cartridges to raise money for the club, as
well as hundreds of prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses
to benefit those who cannot afford prescription lenses.
