It is with deep regret that I announce the passing of one of our longtime members, Ronnie Hearn. I will post more information about his service once we learn the details. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.
Our March meeting had 22 present. We scheduled a members only hunt at Skipper and Joann Dunn's land on April 11th at 10AM. The hunt will be for silver halves but in a unique way. There will be silver dimes buried and also pennies with numbers stamped on them. You have to get a total of 21 points worth of pennies and you can turn them in for a silver half. The hunt will have an entry fee of $21 per person.
Our speaker of the month was our very own Tim Lester. Tim discussed the current laws involving the metal detecting hobby as it relates to trespass and whether you are entitled to keep your finds. He did a lot of work on the handout and was very thorough.
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.
