THE MONTHLY NEWSLETTER OF THE GOLD COAST TREASURE CLUB, INC.
VOLUME 31 NUMBER 5
THE NEXT MEETING WILL BE 7:30 P.M MAY 11, 2006
AT THE WEST PALM BEACH GARDEN CLUB IN DREHER PARK
IN WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA
OUR CODE OF ETHICS: HAVE PERMISSION AND DO NO HARM
Our next meeting on May 11 will feature presentations by two
of our members: Jerry Turner and Jan Smirnow.
FORT DRUM FADED IN TIME
One of our members, Jerry Turner, has persevered in doing
something that most of us could not even imagine starting. He
has become an author. His self published book, “Fort Drum
Faded in Time” is a historical perspective of the area and its
evolution over the past two centuries. He has spent several
years researching archives as well as personally investigating
locations and interviewing long time residents. The resulting
manuscript is a fascinating look at this central region of
Florida that has played a key role in the development of the
state. In many ways it is a closer look at all of Florida – the
tragic abuse of its native peoples and the insurgent powers that
laid claim to the territory. Jerry has agreed to provide us with a
brief overview at our next meeting. He has also donated a
copy of the book to the club library. So come listen to some of
the eye opening history of this area. It will give you a whole
new outlook on Florida.
GREAT SOUTHERN BEACH SHOOTOUT
Jan Smirnow will do a presentation on her experiences at the
competition hunt in Daytona. This was her first competition
hunt on a national level and she enjoyed her weekend. She
will bring along pictures. Of course, she will have input and
pictures from the other club members who competed. Be sure
to see the Tall Tales Tables for the goodies found and won.
Thank you in advance to Cheryl Petenbrink for volunteering
to bring Refreshments for the May meeting. A thank you also
goes out to Bob Dobski who will try to stump us with a
Mystery Item, so be sure to bring ALL the items you find for
the Tall Tales Table
.Join us for BBQ before the meeting!
A group of us have been getting together at Park Avenue
BBQ in Lake Worth at 5:30 p.m. right before each club
meeting for the last few months. It’s a fun way to network
with your detecting buddies, so why not come out and join us?
Everyone is welcome! Just show up and look in the back room
for a group of smiling faces. As always, it is “Dutch Treat” –
so B.Y.O.M – Bring your own money!

Remember to return any library books or
videos that you checked out last month.
Mark your calendar on May 13th for our next club hunt. Ben
Smith has volunteered to sponsor a planted hunt at Jupiter
Beach. He will not only be providing the items to be buried
but will do the manual labor of burying those items. Prize
tokens will also be buried for prizes that the club will provide.
Huntmaster Linda appreciates any help or suggestions. She
has had a break the past few months due to members stepping
forward to volunteer.
Hunt orientation will start at 8:15 am. Members should meet
at the parking lot at the Jupiter Inlet.
