THE MAY HUFIT
14 members gathered on May 18tr, in Indiantown to explore that historical city. A brief
history of the area and a map were given out and the group split up to hunt the town for
the next 3 hours. They met back at Kiwanis Park to total up the finds for prizes. Harry
Somrners found the most coins (52) and also found a great variety of items such as two
gold(?) rings (one with a stone that tested negative for a diamond), one silver ring, a
Craftsman wrench, two drill bits and a coin from Bermuda. Erik Kristensen found the
most money ($3.40) using his new detector. $5 cash prizes were given to Stacey delucia
for the best toy (a Matchbox car), Dorothy Mills for the most unusual (a finial cross) and
Bob Dobski for the oldest coin. (a 1970 nickel) Gail Iloskins won a prize for her efforts
at swinging a coil after returning from a three month hiatus due to her right arm pain.
A-fter going to a local cafe for lunch ten members decided to stay and hunt sorns more.
More money was found but no older coins or relics after another two hours of searching a
carnivai area, the clld railroad station and the site of an abandoned trailer park. Evervone
agreed that this area has the potential for more searching and the group would like to
come back after the weather gets cooler.

The South Florida club newsletter arrived at press time and in the story about this hunt
they actually said this about otr club: "they have a weird idea that they will fine more
goodies than our group!" They call their newsletter the Pulltab Express which is a good
name because that's all our club will leave for them!
