AUGUST MEETING
th

Our August 12 meeting will feature a presentation by
Joe Kononchik of Reilly’s Treasured Gold. Joe has been
employed by Reilly’s for ten years and has a wealth of
knowledge concerning metal detecting machinery. He will
bring some of the high quality scoops that have made
RTG famous and explain their uses. Be ready with your
questions, as this will be a great opportunity to find out
what the hottest equipment is and why.
Our August meeting is also traditionally our “What to
Do with Your Finds Contest.” See next column for more
information about this not-to-be-missed annual event.
Thanks in advance to August’s Mystery Item
volunteer, Stacey deLucia, and to Heather and Gary
McNew, our August refreshments volunteers!
JOIN US EARLY AT P.A. BBQ!
Several of us get together for dinner and a few laughs in
the back room of P.A. BBQ at 5:30 p.m. before each
meeting. Please join us for good friends & good food!

$ AUGUST RAFFLE: COIN TUMBLER $
There are still a few chances left to win the Coin
Tumbler that Gail and Steve Hoskins donated. For only
$2 per chance, this essential item can be yours! All
proceeds of our raffles benefit the club.

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR FINDS CONTEST
It’s finally here! Every August, this popular contest
encourages our members to show off their creativity
using items they’ve found while metal detecting. Do you
have a unique way to display your finds? Have you
created “masterpieces” using items you’ve “recovered”
during your hunts? If so, we want to see them! In the past,
we’ve seen jewelry, mobiles, paintings, collages, lamps,
paperweights and other assorted oddities made from club
members’ finds. What can you dream up?
Members who wish to enter must bring a new item (or
items) that they created since the last contest. Previous
contest entries will not be eligible for prizes, but feel free
to show them off if you’d like. The three categories will
be Best Display, Best Wearable Item and Most
Creative. Silver prizes will be awarded.
*******************************************

NO AUGUST CLUB HUNT
Anyone who has stepped outside in the last couple of
months will know why. It’s just TOO DARN HOT!!! If
you do venture out, be sure to bring plenty of water and
stay hydrated. Be safe, not sorry!
