February at the age of 71 after losing a two year
battle with adult leukemia. Bob told of Mirek being
active in the Polish underground as a boy during
WW2, his marriage to Eva and how, because they
were anti-communists, fled Poland leaving all their
possessions behind and traveled through Italy and
Austria eventually coming to the US of A.
The club unanimously voted Eva as a life member.

free door prize ticket along with those who bring the

chase up to the tall tales table to pick up tickets. This

will help streamline our meeting.

INSIDERNEWS!II!I
I recently attended a writer's convention in Lakeland
Florida and at the hotel I went down to the bar for
evening drink. I got talking to the guy next to me
lo and behold he told me that he worked for
prominent metal detector manufacturer. He had
quite a few under his belt and said he had a secret.

told me that a new detector was coming on t
market this summer. It had a TV screen of about
inch square but a lens magnifred it so that you can
everything under the ground down to 12 inches
could be identified. No more discrimination
muttered. He also told me that this machine woul
sell for under $3001 He said it would "blast out"
industry but keep it "our" secret. I think he w
honest. I didn't get his name but I do know t
company. Stay tunedl

machines after each hunt, this is a reminder to keep
the batteries fresh and keep your detector/s in a safe
place. We have lots of good hunts planned for the
upcoming months! Happy hunting!

A gentleman, fresh out of gift ideas, bought his
mother-in-law a large plot in an expensive cemetery.
On her next birthday he gave her nothing. She was
quick to comment loud and long on his
thoughtlessness. The gentleman only said one thing:
"Well, you haven't used the gift I gave you last year"
We must never forget the main purpose
of our club.

Because of many factors that have come up the
officers are recommending that our members opt out
of renewing their membership in the National
Federation of Metal Detecting and Archaeology
Clubs. See any officer for details.
