New business discussion
In the past years we have had a
silent auction to help booster the
clubs funds. The discussion will be
doing a silent auction that only club
members attend or a second option as
follows: members Tammy and John
Lobota are sponsoring a yard sale for
their community in October. We can
join in and have a table to sell
donated items from members as well
as do some public relation work. I
am presenting this to the members to
ask what they would like to do. If
we do a silent auction at our meeting
within the membership we could still
do a public relations table at John’s
yard sale. Comments? Please let Jan
know what you would like.
Don't forget about our monthly
50/50. Also a new raffle for a one
ounce bar of silver raffle.
JOIN US EARLY AT
TOM SAWYER RESTAURANT

AUGUST MEETING MINUTES
Our Annual Ice Cream Social was attended by 21 members
on August 11. I noticed fellow members were having a
really good time experimenting with ice cream floats held in
Brothers Thermal cups (donated by former members Mindy
and Gary Spiroch); and several were making interesting
combinations of sundaes! We had two different kinds of
chocolate syrup, caramel and strawberry and peanut butter
A Big Thank You to Cheryl Petenbrink, Jim and Ingrid
Orlando, Linda Bennett and Gail and Steve Hoskins; without
their assistance we just could have not made it!
Birthday dollars were given to Betty Laur and Steve Hoskins.
Our Silver Bar raffle was started but there is still plenty of
space for our next meeting.
Treasurer’s report was given as plus $1400.
Jason Petenbrink told of a recent encounter with a bull
shark at Lake Worth. Steve Hamedl spoke of a somewhat
scary situation at a local beach. While he was in the water
detecting, he noticed several people on the beach pointing at
a large dark mass in the water near him. He snorkeled over
(rather brave or just too curious?) and discovered five
manatees huddled together!!! Never has he seen five at one
time huddled at a public beach! He informed the crowd and
asked that they not touch them!
A new thing in the meetings is a signup sheet to indicate
attendance. There is so much going on in the club, that we
lose touch with those not attending. Hopefully the members
that are not attending the meetings will get in touch with one
of the officers and let us know what is going on with them.
The signup sheet will enable us to get in touch with those not
Glenford Smith bought in an interesting object, a
chocolate pod! Very few members had ever seen one. The
seeds in the pod are ground to produce cocoa. According to
Glenford the seeds are sweet to suck. Glenford’s tree
produced only 5 pods this year, it is a fairly young tree and
he is looking forward to bumper crop in the future.
The members were asked to talk about what they had
done so far this summer. Most replied that they were not
doing metal detecting, as it was just too hot! Jim and Ingrid
Orlando went camping with their two children in inland
Florida and are helping one of their children move. Carl
Basilico said just dancing including the Tango! April Sovich
and Patricia Kachadrian just basically hanging out watching
movies and the list goes on! Betty and Jerry Laur, Steve and
Gail Hoskins and Linda Bennett have all been traveling. Not
much metal detecting but lots going on!
Three guests attended our meeting: they were Michael
McFaul of Seattle, Washington and Michelle Durnil of Coral
Springs along with a former member Randy Selnick.
Gary McNew finally found the time to return to the club!
It seems that his wife Heather had a severe break in her collar
bone area. He was proud to show his ten day marathon
hunting results! Ask him at our next meeting I am sure he
will share his pictures.
The 50/50 Raffle netted $32 to the lucky winner--me!

Whites Electronics is currently working on a new website
and when it’s finished it’s going to be a dandy. The new
“Support” page is very cool and I especially liked the
“Check Your Repair Status” option. Another nice touch?

The ‘Friday’s Joy’ gold nugget is expected to bring more than
$250,000 AUD. It was discovered in a worked-over area at the
far southern edge of Central Victoria’s Golden Triangle on a
recent Friday morning by a seasoned prospector wishing to
remain anonymous. After discovering a 9-ounce tennis ballshaped gold nugget more than two feet deep with his Minelab
GPZ 7000 the previous day, he went back for more.
“I thought it was rubbish at first, maybe an old horseshoe,”
said the prospector. “About 12 inches below the ground, I could
just barely make out the top of something. As I began to scrape
away the clay and dig deeper, I really couldn’t believe my eyes this wasn’t an old piece of steel in front of me. I had just
unearthed a colossal gold nugget - a once in a lifetime find! I
was in total disbelief as I didn't think nuggets of this size were
