Good Will Ambassadors

Performing Random Acts of Kindness
Each month, 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 go out of their way to
return items to their rightful owners. The actions of each
of our “Ambassadors of Good Will” enhance the public’s
perception of our hobby and make our club shine!

Returns Recognized at February Meeting

If you missed the February meeting, start kicking
yourself right now! All this editor can say is “WOW!”
about our most recent speaker, Harvey E. Oyer III. I
know that I am not alone in that assessment, as many
members stated that this was the BEST presentation that
our club has had in years, if not ever!
Mr. Oyer is not only is a well-respected attorney,
author, lecturer, and former archeologist who served for
many years as president of the Palm Beach County
Historical Society, but he is most notably a fifthgeneration Floridian whose colorful family history helped
shape the Florida that we know and love today. A riveting
storyteller, Mr. Oyer wrote a two-book series about the
amazing life of his great-grand uncle, Charlie Pierce. His
books, The Adventures of Charlie Pierce: The American
Jungle and The Adventures of Charlie Pierce: The Last
Egret, are required reading for all Florida 4th graders. He
centered his engaging presentation on The Last Egret, a
captivating tale of two eight-year-old boys who changed
the course of history through their unlikely friendship.
We thank our February volunteers and encourage
EVERY MEMBER to step forward at least once per year.
In return for your efforts, you will receive a free raffle
ticket and our sincere appreciation. (Need info? Just ask!)
Whenever Marjorie and Paul Hamlin provide
refreshments, we know that we are in for an extraordinary
treat and this time was no exception! Also, Stacey
deLucia provided the Mystery Stumper – a cell phone car
charger – which succeeded in stumping everyone! Do you
think YOU can stump your fellow members with a unique
Mystery Item from your finds? Volunteer and find out!

Carrying Extra Water for Your Detector
Make sure to carry water with you when you are out
detecting, as the salt water is very damaging to your metal
detector. Most places that we go to have a shower or some
source of water to clean our detectors. Some of the areas
north of us don’t have them, so I carry a bottle with water
to clean off my detector. Wipe yours down after you have
poured water on it, or take a cloth and pour water on it and
then wipe down your detector. You don’t want your
detector to malfunction when you go to your next site or
hunt. Until next time – Beep! Beep!
