There will NOT be a club hunt in July because it is
TOO DARN HOT. But there will be a scavenger hunt
instead. See the insert for a copy of the items and the
rules. Silver prizes will be awarded at the August meeting.
Ken Lubinski and Betty and Jerry Laur will host a
club hunt on August 12 at Carlin Park. The cost will be
$2/hunter. More details will be in the August newsletter.
Ben Smith and Karen Larson will be hosting the club
hunt in September. The date and details will be announced
in the September newsletter.
Hunt Master Linda is always looking for new ideas
for hunts. If any member would like to host a hunt, give
her a call. She will give you the details.
HUNT MASTER’S EDITORIAL
Many club members have their own special or “secret”
places to metal detect that they like to keep to themselves.
Their time invested in research and actual hunting has
resulted in certain areas that produce consistent finds.

those who DO believe in keeping their spots private.
Unwritten treasure hunting etiquette stipulates that you
should not ask the exact area found (i.e. Delray Beach).
Instead, ask was the item found in the water, on the beach
or on land. Do not be disappointed if the individual does
not want to give you a specific area. They are not being
unfriendly. These same members are more than willing to
share general tips on hunting or using a particular metal
