September 2019 Minutes
President Nash opened the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance.
The club extended its condolences to Melody and Jack in the loss of Melody’s father.
Vern is recovering from his knee surgery.
The club welcomed our guest Bill Ramsay visiting to scuba dive and metal detect local beaches with his son.
Bill Lane and Arnie Steiner were the only birthdays present to collect their spoils and cupcakes brought by Frank and Laurie.
Sue distributed a metal detector repair kit list to ensure you are not left without a machine when travelling with your detector. It would
not be good to find yourself on a pristine tourist beach with a machine that fails at the most inopportune time. She will have the
consolidated tip document for this year’s holiday party at the December meeting.
Frank again mentioned the need for a volunteer to serve as “Hunt Organizer” to inspire club members to meet between meetings. Marco
Tinajero has found some interesting items and an upcoming hunt to Vedado Park the weekend after the meeting.
Sadly, our presenter was a no-show leaving the club high and dry. Our guest, Bill Ramsey stepped up and a gave an interesting
presentation on the primary causes of blindness in America. His knowledge as an optometrist was outstanding. Make sure you schedule
your annual eye exam to catch Glaucoma, Diabetes, Cataracts and Macular Degeneration before they’er too advanced to effectively
Frank had a Nokta Makro PulseDive Scuba Detector/pinpointer on display. It appeared to be a very nice compact detector/pinpointer for
underwater use around obstacles.
Frank and Laurie submitted Holiday Potluck lists and volunteers to assist in organizing a community hunt for senior citizens on Juno
beach. Volunteers would potentially provide detectors and instruction to curious senior citizens for a short hunt.
Club members Bill Lane and Arnie Stiener relayed their post-Dorian exploits on City Beach and Bathtub Beach only producing clad for
their troubles. Bill relayed that Lantana Beach was blocked off by law enforcement, and Frank discussed silver near Vero Beach also
blocked by the state to detectorists.
The 50/50 winner was yours truly, John Burke who donated the profits to Bill Ramsey for his willingness to give and on-the-spot

The Tinfoil Times
From the desk of your President:
Last month we had a guest speaker – a member of a fourth generation Palm Beach family lined up to speak to the club, or so we thought.
By Thursday we were unable to reach him via phone calls or texts to confirm his appearance. This concerned some of the board members
greatly. Somehow it did not bother me. I felt a peace and serenity that everything was going to be fine. Why? I can't explain. Although a
week prior I had received a call from Mr. Bill Ramsey, explaining that he lives in Ocala and would be visiting Palm Beach with his son to
metal detect and scuba dive arriving on September the 12th. He was invited to our club meeting along with the invite to Flannigan's for
dinner. As it turned out, he joined us at dinner sitting near Dave and Sue along with Laurie at one end of the table. At the other end of the
table were John Burke and Randy along with myself, therefore preventing us to hear any of the conversation at the other end. Still no
speaker, or so I thought, until at the meeting Laurie informed me Bill was an Eye Doctor and might be able to speak to the membership. Bill
agreed to speak about eye blindness with four letters he wrote on the board: D, C, G and M. Each letter stood for an illness that can affect
the eyes - Diabetes, Cataracts, Glaucoma, and Macular Degeneration. Bill's speech was both informative and relevant to our membership
especially in my particular situation that had just occurred that week. The questions and answers with the membership went well. Things
For our October meeting it is only fitting to invite the members to dress more or less in the Halloween spirit. There will be prizes for the
best costumes or T-shirts or what have you. Yes I know it looks very professional along with the pride in our club to wear the club shirts.
Hopefully Sue will forgive me after all the time and effort she had put into the club shirts. Please dress up in some manner or another. You
don't have to overboard unless you want to. The snacks and beverages will be theme appropriate.
Here's a last minute thought. If you want to bring a carved pumpkin there will also be prizes for that category.
