Random Act of Kindness
Metal Detecting Scoop – Ed Weston
Cell Phone – Bob Smirnow
Clevis Pin – Bob Smirnow
Cell Phone – Richard Zabriskie
Richard and Bob both called the parents’ phone numbers
in the cell phone directory. One Dad stated that his
daughter told him that the phone was stolen. The other
Mother said that her daughter had lost the phone on
prom night, but there was no way that the cell phone was
lost on South Beach. Both phones were returned without
further problems. It seems like the parents didn’t believe
their children’s complete explanations.
We would like to recognize those in our club who go out
of their way to provide selfless service to our
community. Kudos to you for advancing our hobby!
Ed Weston received a metal detector pin and certificate
for his first returned item (a scoop) as a club member.
Richard Zabriskie returned a cell phone. Bob Smirnow
is one of our “frequent flyers” and received two more
certificates of appreciation for returning a cell phone
and a Clevis pin. Hey, Bob, when you are done wall
papering your guest room, can you take a picture for
us???

JUNE MEETING
Twenty-five members attended the June meeting. While
we didn’t have any new members or guests, President
Kurt Herring welcomed back Bob & Gay Konnegan
and Wayne Stephens.
Kurt Herring presented an interesting two-tiered
program. During the first half of the program, Kurt
demonstrated the ROV – Remotely Operated Vehicle –
that he invented. We all know that Kurt is a technical
genius, but who knew that we have “America’s Next
Top Inventor” in our midst? Kurt explained that he
wrote a computer program on his PC that records live
images onto his computer. He even demoed a live feed
of club members during his presentation. So far, Kurt
has tested the ROV in 15 dives at depths of 15 to 20 feet
with no leakage. His goal is to reach 100 feet. His next
model will feature a GPS and his eventual goals are to
build a metal detector into the ROV and to incorporate
side scanning sonar. He says now he has to figure out
how to retrieve objects that he locates with the ROV, but
that it could take years to perfect the model.
After his demonstration, Kurt showed White’s
“Treasure Hunting America” video which he
downloaded from the Internet. Many useful relic hunting
tips were shared by renowned experts in the field who
have successfully recovered artifacts that now grace the
Smithsonian, including historical artifacts from
shipwrecks from the 1700s. For Civil War buffs, the
video featured some impressive relics and useful tips on
how to find them.
