March 2019 Club Minutes
The President Nash opened the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance.
The club welcomed our guests and potentially new members Susan Gena and Glen Richter.
Bill Lane, Randy Selnick, and John Burke gave feedback on the recent Wabasso hunt. Aching backs and knees aside, the hunt was
enjoyable with vendor prizes for most. The next major organized hunt will be held in Orlando on 06 April.
Tripp submitted the details and asked for RSVPs for the For the Children Inc. hunt to be held in Lake Worth.
Frank also mentioned the potential for a hunt on a Jupiter Farms property where legend says spoils a’plenty may be located.
Dates and times to be determined.
Only 2/6 birthday members were present to collect their bounty. Jason Petenbrink and Don Clemens stood alone to collect their
Vice President Sue Chonoles presented examples of club shirts for purchase. Examples of both UV and Polo shirts bearing the
club logo were available for sizing. Participation dictates the final price, so show your support and suit up.
Sue also presented an interesting point of view on paradigm and how it may affect your detecting results. A Paradigm or way of
viewing things/topics could limit results if you allow yourself to be limited by one way of approaching detecting techniques. In
short, allow yourself to approach detecting from another point of view if you feel your intended results stagnate.
Joe, from Reilly’s Treasured Gold gave an outstanding presentation on beach reading/detecting that rivaled Tom Dankowski’s.
Time will tell if the copious notes taken will bring treasure to club member’s pouches.
Donated detector raffle went to Dave and Sue Chronicle.
The 50/50 winner was last year’s detectorist of the year…..Arnie Steiner.

Club Hunt March 17
The club hunt on Sunday, March 17th 2019 arranged by Tripp went very well. With 12 members attending, the morning was pleasantly
cool and sunny. Most of us chose to detect in the backyard area where a large playground is. Finding coins was quick and continued
for the next four hours. Various items were found to include toy cars, rings, bracelets along with bottle tops and pull tabs ( can't seem
to get away from those rascals ) along with large amounts of metal trash and some broken glass and sharp items. The trashy stuff
nearly covered an entire picnic table, which was properly disposed of, in a nearby garbage can. The membership did a great job of
covering their holes along with removing the trash that might possibly hurt a student. We probably searched 15% to 20% of the total
land area. Which implies a future hunt or two are in the plans for the club.
The following Tuesday Laurie and I drove down to the school to personally thank Miss Trudy and Miss Garnier for allowing our club to
detect the property. When asked what we had found, we gave them a brief account to include the hazarded trash. They were quite
surprised in regards to the trash, until one of their staff confirmed the garbage can that she had witness near the playground. Their
next statement got our attention when she said a musket ball had been found near the train tracks a while ago. We were assured that
are welcome to return. Will keep you posted.
