We only had 17 in attendance for the June meeting but it's a start. We have decided to have a hunt at Joann and Skipper's house on June 27th starting at 10am. We'll need some to come early to help bury. There will be a cost of $20 per person. It's time to get back in to the swing of things.
Also put on your calendar that we are having a club auction at our August meeting. We need everyone that attends to please bring items to donate to help make this a successful auction. The money we make will go into a fall silver hunt.
The club has voted to have a fundraiser for the fall hunt as well. There will be a half ounce gold coin that we will sell tickets at $2.00 each for a chance to win. Our hope is to sell 2500 tickets. For those members who sell tickets there will be a members only hunt that you can only participate in if you've sold tickets. Our hope is to sell all the tickets so that we can put the money toward a really great members only silver hunt in the fall. More to come on that.
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.
