President Kurt Herring welcomed three guests to
the meeting. The first order of business was a report
from the nomination committee and their proposed slate
of officers for 2007. Kurt will not be able to participate
as an officer due to schooling and work will conflict
with the meetings in 2007. Voting and induction of
officers will be held at the Holiday Party in December.
The slate of officers presented was as follows:

Ernie Bouyoucas, President
Stacey deLucia, Vice President
Ken Lubinski, Treasurer
Jan Smirnow, Secretary
Hunt Master, Linda Bennett

Gail Hoskins, Sales and Raffle Promoter
Karen Larson, Prize Coordinator
Betty Laur, Hospitality Chair
Steve Hoskins, Club Photographer
The newest club raffle of an ultrasonic jewelry
cleaner valued at $80 was introduced. Forty chances are
being sold at $3 per chance.
The program for the night was a video on metal
detecting in England. The BBC has made seven films in
this series with each highlighting a separate find. Thank
you, Kurt Herring, for that educational treat!
Thank you to Marilyn and Les Batts for providing
the refreshments. Also thank you to Ernie Bouyoucas
for stumping the club with his mystery item. John
Lobota also deserves a round of applause for stepping in
with very little notice to fulfill the hunt master’s duties.
The nominating committee worked hard to come up
with a slate of officers and board members. Serving on
the committee was John Lobota, Jerry Turner and
Ernie Bouyoucas.
Bob Smirnow reported that he received a $40 check
for finding and returning a cell phone to its owner. Bob
took his time not only to track down the owner, but also
mailing it back to the man who lived in Chicago.

Thank you to Cheryl Petenbrink, Bob Smirnow and
Stacey deLucia for their donations of items that will be
used for future prizes. (Door prize donations are always


November birthday celebrants Les Batts, Mitzi

Sophie Pietrucha (12/15)
Carol Presslein (12/27)
Thomas Snell (12/3)
What do the above people have in common? If they come
to the meeting during their birthday month, they each
will receive a gift of a silver quarter!

If you go to this web site, www.letssaythanks.com,
you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will
print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is
currently serving in Iraq. You can't pick out who
gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed
services. How AMAZING it would be if we could
get everyone we know to send one!!!
This is a great site. Please send a card. It is FREE
and it only takes a second.
We cannot thank the soldiers enough. Mitzi Bergrud

No club hunt will be scheduled for December. This
is a hectic time of the year and many other events
conflict. But the New Year will bring fun hunts!
Members have volunteered to research new places to
hunt and some have interesting ideas for planted hunts.
Remember about the 2006 Yearly Best Finds that will
be held in February. Any items that were displayed on
the Tall Tales Tables in 2006 are eligible. So be sure to
put aside those special finds as you get organized for the
New Year. More details will be at the January meeting.
Starting in January, a fifth Monthly Best Find will be
added. That category will be Best Coin. This category
will include any coin whether American or foreign.
