Please remember those members who are not able to
metal detect – Don Caplinger, Dorothy Mills and James
Wilhelm. Calls are always welcome!
James Wilhelm remains in Houston, Texas for
continued medical treatment. He is trying hard to get back
to West Palm Beach for the October meeting. His address
will no longer be valid after September 15 so just contact
him by his email at Jamesat533@aol.com .

This great tip comes from the Treasurenet forum:
Wearing Polarized sunglasses while in the water increases
your $$$. Read the post made by Sandman, below:
“If you haven't started wearing Polarized sunglasses
while water hunting, you should. I mainly hunt early
mornings when the wind hasn't picked up much to ruffle
the surface of the water. The glasses allow you to more
clearly see the bottom for finding things like dollar bills,
etc. that wash out of pockets. It's a little more difficult to
catch the bills as they wash about in the waves in
saltwater, but in freshwater they just lay on the bottom
waiting for you.”


Thank you to Jon Consiglio of Batteries Plus for the
donation this month of a football signed by Brett Favre
and for past donations of 12-packs of 9V batteries and 24packs of AA batteries. Batteries Plus is located at 6250
Lantana Road, Suite 1, behind Outback Restaurant.

Has anyone here ever used something like this to
sift a beach?

Club members are encouraged to bring in
prescription glasses and sunglasses, which will be
donated to underprivileged people suffering from vision
problems. Stacey collects these during our meetings so the
club can donate them to the South Florida Lion’s Club.
Jan Smirnow is collecting cell phones and ink
cartridges. NOTE: All ink cartridges need to be kept
enclosed in plastic baggies so the cartridges do not dry
out. Donations can be placed in the box in the back of the
room. Help save our planet AND raise $ for GCTC!

To find the cache you'd best take a stroll,
somewhere close by - how 'bout Lake O.
Not the one to the North and West,
look here in town, it'll be for the best.
Burial of cache and clues are provided by Ernie
Bouyoucas. If found by a club member, that person will
receive a prize of $25.


Safety first! Many of us hunt during the evening hours
using only a headlight to see a limited area of the beach.
Unfortunately, this increases our chances of crossing paths
with unsavory type of characters. We all think that this
will never happen to us. But it did happen to a metal
detectorist at Daytona Beach. “It was dark at that section
of the beach because of the sea turtle nesting season. I
was leaving the beach and was walking up the driving
ramp towards my jeep. Without any warning, I was hit
over the head by punks looking to rob an "easy" mark. I
went down to the ground and was really "woozy" & seeing
stars. Somehow I didn't lose consciousness and was able
to start swinging my long handled scoop. I guess that they
weren't expecting their victim to fight back so they ran off.
I was able to call 911 on my cell phone and stumble to a
local hotel and wait until help arrived. At the hospital the
test showed that my injuries are minor (slight concussion
and neck strain”).
The above was posted on the Treasure Net Forum.
To read the whole post:

You need to be aware of what is going on around you at
ALL times, day or night, no matter where you are
hunting. Hunting with a buddy is wise; stay near each
other at night! Many partners wear walkie talkies and cell
phones. Blinking red lights that are used on bikes as a
safety feature are a great way to keep track of each other
in the dark. Cheryl Petenbrink wears one on her back.
That way her family can see either her headlight from her
front or the red blinking light on her back.
