Our next club hunt will be on Saturday, May 10 at Golden Sands Beach .  The cost of the hunt is $5.00.  Participants are also asked to bring a covered dish to share.


There was a show of hands of those that plan to attend.  It was decided to have the hunt at 5:00 p.m. so that more people will attend.


Mitch said the “club token” has been hidden within the city limits of  Sebastian.  A metal detector will be given to the person that finds the token.


Certificates were given to Mark Holshoe for his Find of the Month’s of March and April.


Ken Thomford finally received his certificate for the February Find of the Month.


Mitch King will be selling club T-shirts for $13.00.  Jim Stewart will not be able to attend meetings because of job obligations.


Everyone was reminded to support Amy with news for the T.C.A.S. MONTHLY.  It will be put on the internet as soon as she can get a pdf file set up.  There is an article in the newsletter that tells about the quarter penny that is being found at the beach.  The person that finds the most quarter pennies by the December meeting will win a small all-purpose tool.

Richard said that we need to start thinking of where we’re going to have the Christmas party this year.  He also suggested that we think about having the party at a different location.  Mary will check around and make reservations.


Richard also made the announcement that after three consecutive visits, a visitor must decide either to join or cease attending.


The Club decided to make two separate charity donations.  One will be to the Police Athletic League ( PAL ) through the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office (IRCSO) and the second to the Police Athletic League ( PAL ) through the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO).  They will receive $200.00 each.


Mitch gave some clues for the TOKEN  hunt.  They are:


1)             It is in the city limits of Sebastian.


2)             It is in a city park.


3)             It is not in a school yard, and


4)             It is not in water.


A Tesoro Silver Sabre detector will be given as a prize to the person that finds the token.


Mitch gave a synopsis about the Great Southern Beach Shootout hunt he attended in Daytona Beach .


A Garrett Ace 250 metal detector will be raffled beginning in June.  The raffle will end with the December meeting.  This raffle will be referred to as the Molasses Raffle.
