TCAS Officers for 2013
Richard Hart, Sr.
Vice-President: Mitch King
Secretary: Diane Briggs
Richard Hart, TCAS President reminded
everyone of the Christmas Party, Sunday December 9th at Marsh
Landings, Fellesmere, FL.
Richard also explained TCAS dues for
the guests present and as a reminder to all club members. Members were also
reminded that TCAS dues for 2013 are now due.
Mitch King, TCAS Vice-President
informed everyone of how the gift exchange works at the Christmas Party.
Richard Hart introduced TCAS member and
Snowbird extraordinaire, Terry Shannon to speak about one of his experiences
metal detecting in Minnesota.
Terry told of story of a trading post
area from the mid 1800’s where there were ox carts. While he hunted there he
found a 2 cent piece from 1864, Indian head pennies and other artifacts such as
nails and a barrel rim. He even found a grave! He has written a couple articles
for magazine and will be on the cover of Temerity (http://temeritymag.com)
which is a relic hunting magazine. Since Terry is so camera shy, he does not
know when he will be on the cover.
Because of the amount of stress and
unknown in my life, and the fact that I will be working afternoon/evening shifts
now on a regular basis that will prevent me from attending TCAS meetings, I have
request from Richard Hart to be removed from the very short list on nominated
members for the position of TCAS Secretary. It has been fun and a pleasure
writing the minutes and I do look forward to being a “former” TCAS Officer.
December is the time for TCAS Officers
to be elected and after the hotly run campaigns, the results have been counted.
Our 2013 TCAS Officers are:
Richard Hart, Sr.
Thank you Diane for volunteering (and
joining TCAS) and on your instantaneous election to TCAS Secretary. I will help
you and TCAS all I can in the coming year.
