Our January meeting had 25 present. Our new President, Dennis Miller, conducted the meeting. Dennis promises to have a fun-filled year this year and we are all looking forward to that and excited to see what the year brings. We had a guest speaker, Barry Tatum of Texican Rare Coins out of Tyler, Tx. The address for his business is 100 Independence Place, Ste. 316, Tyler. Please visit them when you are in Tyler.
Barry talked about various treasure finds such as some great Spanish gold coins found on the 3ooth Anniversary of the sinking of the Spanish fleet in 1715. It was very interesting. We really appreciate Barry's time that he gave us. We will have some upcoming dates on hunts later.
MONTHLY FUN FACT...
WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?...
BARRELS OF OIL
When the first oil wells were drilled, they had made no provision for storing the liquid so they used water barrels. That is why, to this day, we speak of barrels of oil rather than gallons.
