FOREIGN COINS
Our club will again be collecting foreign coins to donate
towards a summer camp for handicapped children. This
will be a year around project. Thank you to Ed Weston,
Jerry Turner, Ken Lubinski and Bob and Gay
Konnagon for their donations.

CELL PHONES & GLASSES
We all find them in this hobby, but unless we are able to
determine their rightful owner, what good are they?
Well, for a homebound senior or domestic violence
victim, a cell phone reprogrammed to call 911 can be the
difference between life and death. And those
prescription glasses you found? They can allow a
disadvantaged person the precious gift of sight. Stacey
deLucia is collecting these items from club members
throughout the year so the club can make a difference in
the lives of those in need. Please see Stacey if you have
found such items, or even if you are upgrading your own
phones and glasses. Together, we can make a difference!

JUNE HUNT
Fortunately, afternoon thunderstorms did not materialize
as forecasted and the scheduled hunt at Deerfield Beach
on June 17 was well attended by 16 hunters and two
spectators. The price of parking has to be the most
expensive in South Florida with the meters requiring a
quarter for only 10 minutes. Few people found enough
coins to pay for that parking, but those participating in
the summer scavenger hunt did get a good start of
marking items off the list.
The top four hunters who came close to finding their
parking fees were Richard Zabriskie ($4.57), Jim
Smith ($3.30), Cheryl Petenbrink ($3.09) and Jerry
Turner ($2.58). Jewelry was found by Linda Bennett,
Jim Smith, Cheryl Petenbrink, Karen Larson,
Richard Zabriskie, Betty Laur and Ed Weston.
Stacey deLucia ended up at the wrong beach, but she
had the best find: a gold ladies ring with nine diamonds.
Eight people met after the hunt at the Red Lobster on US
1 in Boca Raton. This eating establishment came very
close to rivaling “Bubba Gump” in Daytona Beach as
the worst eating experience the club has shared.

Tips From The Treasure Depot Forum on
Water Hunting
On choosing a scoop for water hunting you need to
consider two important points: type of material and
length of the handle.
Stainless steel is highly
recommended and the opening of the basket should be at
least six inches. The length of handle should be from the
ground to the tip of your nose. Two piece handles should
be considered if you travel and need the option to break
the scoop down for packing in a suitcase.
The scoop should be designed so you can step down
hard on the scoop to dig through shells.
Also fasten a strong, flat magnet in the bottom, to catch
small targets like nails, hair pins, fish hooks, etc.
Some people add a bike handle onto the scoop to make it
easier to use.

RICHARD’S TIP
When hunting the beach, look for tell tale signs of where
people sat. Concentrate on the sand mounds where
beachgoers’ butts sat. In many cases, you’ll be rewarded
with lost pocket change and toy cars.
