The membership was asked to consider running for an officer position for the coming year.

We had a very interesting speaker.  His name is Doug Pope.  He is an investor in the Polly L treasure ship.  Where land ends and adventure begins.  Mr. Pope said to go to the Mel Fisher Treasure Museum to see the artifacts and the cleaning process of the Amelia Island project.  It is in the back and if they know you are serious will take you to the lab. The treasure ship legs are 60 feet tall.  The pads are 6í x 10í.  It can travel at 60 miles per hour.  The motors cost $25,000.00 each.

Jim Stewart told about a hunt he did in SC.  He also gave another clue for the token hunt.
