We had 24 people in attendance for our October meeting with one very special guest. Gypsy Jewell was our special guest and was gracious enough to come to our club meeting to be our Guest Speaker. She is a cancer survivor and an inspiration to many. She talked about how she started in the metal detecting hobby some 22 years ago and how she began her very successful Youtube channel, "Zero discrimination." She has also been invited to be on a Discovery channel show which will air in the future. The name of the show could not be revealed at this time but she will announce it when she is able. We really enjoyed and appreciated her time to come and talk to our club.
Sammy Draper was the winner of our big gold coin drawing at the meeting. Congratulations to Mr. Draper. We have our big members only silver hunt coming up on October 24th at 9AM to be held at Joann and Skipper's land. $20.00 entry until the day of the hunt. Then the price is increased to $40.00. See you there!
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.
