February 2019 Club Minutes
Tripp is planning a land hunt at an old school that was built in 1950 located in Lake Worth. It has never been hunted. He received
permission for us to hunt there. A sign-up sheet was made available at the meeting. However, additional info will be made available at our
next meeting, as well as an opportunity for others to sign up for the hunt. The hunt is set for Sunday, March 17, at 8:00 a.m.
Bill Lane provided information about an open hunt in Wabasso (Kiwanis-Hobart Park) on Saturday, 3/9. The all day hunt is $125. If you
register before 3/1, the cost is $99. He can provide additional information on it. He had handed out info flyers at the meeting.
Reminder, the March meeting will be held on Wednesday, 3/13.
Sue gave her tips for the month. This one was about being aware of your sites and of your surroundings.
Frank gave a demonstration on 6 pin pointers with feedback from the audience.
Members brought in items to sell in during the meeting.
Vibra-Tech Pinpointer Raffle
Club Secretary John Burke has donated a Vibra-Tector 740 underwater pin pointer.
This pin pointer is worth $200. Raffle tickets are $3 each, or 2 for $5. There are still
some tickets left, so make sure you get yours at the meeting.
St. Patrick’s Day Club Hunt
1718 Douglas St
Lake Worth, FL 33460
Tripp Cioci has put together this month’s hunt at a local school. The building has been there since the 1950s, so
there’s no telling what we may find.
Members can park on the street or park in the dirt parking lot south of the building. The fence is locked, so we are
getting special permission to hunt. Please be respectful to not leave any holes. The fee is $5.00 which will be
donated to the non-profit school. It is a great opportunity to test your machine on a inland hunt, and help out a nonprofit organization at the same time. See you there!

Club Hunt News
The club hunt was a two part hunt enjoyed by the twelve members that attended.
Everyone met around 5 p.m.
A large variety of items were provided for their dining enjoyment. Hamburgers, cheese burgers, 4 bags of chips in a variety of
flavors, Oreo cookies, sugar free cookies, honey roasted peanuts, various sodas both regular and sugar free, and bottles of
Most of the members had something to eat and drink before the first hunt began, which consisted of a day time wild hunt
lasting a little over an hour. The group left the meeting spot going down to the beach in a rather large group. Shortly after they
left, a guy who had been detecting with a CTX 30-30 left the beach returning to his car that was near to our meeting place. As I
approached to inquire how his search went, he noticed the Minelab hat I was wearing and made a positive remark about
Minelab. His reply to how his day went is priceless.
He said he had been detecting for a couple of hours finding a lot of quarters, leaving the pennies behind, until a bus load of
metal detecting people had descended upon the beach, which caused him to leave. If only we had all been wearing a Club Tshirt, looking like an army.
As darkness approached it was back to the meeting area to refresh with drinks and food. That gave Laurie Haire time to plant
coins and "jewelry" for the night hunt.
With a early rising nearly full moon, it was time for the night to begin. The hunt lasted a little over an hour. The temperature
was around 70 degrees with a steady light wind blowing any bugs away making for a pleasant atmosphere. ( No pun intended,
As the members returned with a bounty of coins and treasures we tallied up the winners for the various categories, aided by
the light from the latrine and flashlights provided by Dave and Sue enabling us to see the goodies. Our thanks to their
foreplaning to provide light.
Prizes awarded included Leather Man multiitem type of pliers, small AAA flashlights and a small Leatherman with a flashlight
Since it appeared everyone enjoyed the two hunts, it motivates Laurie and me to plan more hunts. If you didn't, my apologies.
