MESSAGE BOARD

We had another great turnout for our monthly May meeting with 39 in attendance.  We had a very beautiful booth for those who were not able to attend the TAMDC convention this year in Carthage.  A big thanks to everyone who helped work our booth and especially a BIG thanks to Joann and Skipper Dunn who orchestrated the details and execution of this wonderful award winning booth.  Our club can be proud of that for sure.  Winner of the first place prize at the convention for the best booth and winner of a gold coin that will actually be given away at our end of the year Christmas party in December.  


We had our silver hunt auction at our May meeting as well and we were able to haul in $598 to go to our "members only" Silver hunt.  The hunt is scheduled  for the morning of June 1st, to be held at 9:00AM (register at 8:00AM).  There was enough money raised that the total hunt value will be $1723.00!  That will make this one of the best Silver hunts we've ever had at the club.  The entry fee will be $25.00.  The hunt will be at the same white plantation house on Marshall Ave. in Henderson, Texas.  Look forward to everyone being there.  

It was fun to also see some of the kids who won detectors at our TAMDC convention this year.  The kids hunt was so much fun to watch.  The hobby's future is safe!  Check out some of the pics below....

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.
