We had 29 people in attendance for our August meeting. There were several new faces which was good to see. We discussed our upcoming members only silver hunt coming up in October. Our fundraiser for that is raffling off a 1/2 ounce gold coin with ticket sales being $2.00 a ticket with presence at the drawing not required.
We had a club auction at the meeting to help make money for the huge silver hunt this October. It looked like we will have brought in several hundred dollars which will help.
It is getting very hot outside with some triple digit heat coming. Every be careful when you hunt and drink lots of water. Heat exhaustion can sneak up on you pretty quick.
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.
