Gosh, it’s hot!
This past month was just plain hot. With heat indexes above
100 degrees, metal detecting was tough. But we made it
through. The best way to recover is, of course, ice cream!
Join us next meeting for our annual Ice Cream Social!
We will also be viewing more of Tom Dankowski’s metal
detecting DVD. Tom’s knowledge of metal detecting is
extraordinary. Even the most experienced detectorists can
learn a lot from Tom.
We’ll see you there!
Join us before the meeting at
5:15 for dinner.

July, 2018 Club Minutes
The meeting began with the Pledge of Allegiance, led by President Frank Nash.
24 members were present.
We were joined by two guests who had a new AT Max, looking for help with learning how to use it.
A signup sheet was passed around for any member who would like to help with emergency searches.
Vice President Sue Chonoles had several items to present.
Duracell batteries are known to leak and can cause damage to detecting equipment. They should be avoided.
Counterfeit detecting equipment has been showing up on the market. Be very careful when purchasing equipment. Only buy from
reputable dealers. If the deal looks too good to be true, it probably is.
Ivan Herring contacted the club. He has written a book, Lost Mines and Treasure Tales of the Southeastern United States. It includes
stories from early newspaper articles on lost treasures in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. This book is
available for Amazon Kindle.
Sue is making progress on the club shirts. She will keep the club updated.
Scavenger hunt put together by member April Sovich. The signup sheet was passed around, along with the list of items. The top
three participants will receive prizes.
Laurie Haire presented the Treasurer’s Report. She also had the latest member directory, which has been updated. They were
distributed to the members.
Thanks to Dave and Sue Chonoles for bringing fresh cut watermelon, and Melody Kazee for her amazing watermelon cake. Frank and
Laurie supplied the drinks and ice.
About half of Tom Dankowski’s DVD was presented to the membership.
The Silver Raffle was won by Dave Riblett.
The chairs were numbered, and a number was drawn. Linda Bennett won the prize of (non-Duracel) batteries.

Next month is our annual Ice Cream Social.
