Happy New Year from the President. The Board remains the same except for the Secretary.

On a much sadder and somber note, it was announced that Mark Person, a long time club member, passed away on December 3, 2010. It was decided to send a card to his family on behave to TCAS. If you would like information on his funeral, ask Mark Holshoe  or Richard Hart.

If you have any new ideas for this year or the future, please inform the President, Richard Hart or any board member.

Christmas Party was a success and a good time. It was at the Marsh Landings in Fellsmere. The gift exchange was interesting. Thanks to the generosity of the club, the club picked up the entire bill.

Skip Watson is the Master Hunter for 2010. Congratulations Skip.

At the February meeting there will be voting for the Find of the Year. Bring in your Find of the Month for voting.

Board Members will be meeting at Marty Hufnagel's house on Tuesday, January 11th.

Mark Holshoe was asked to explain the "finds" table.

There was some discussions about the club buying TCAS badge lanyards. Only about 17 members were interested in buying them at $3.00 a piece. Minimum order would be 100. They will not be ordered.

Skip Watson wanted to see how many members would be interested in a hunt up in Daytona Beach. This would be informal and nothing would be planted. This could be a nice day or weekend getaway and who knows what could be found......................
