Club Minutes

The last meeting of the SHORE SEEKERS Artifact and Recovery Club was held on Thursday, August 10th 7:00 p.m. at Christ Church.

Brooke Bishop was in attendance as a guest.


Extra copies of The Seeker were available.

Minutes were approved as distributed.

The treasurer gave his report.

There was more talk of the members' only hunt. We have permission to use a lot at the church for the hunt since we let them know that this would be a strictly non-digging event. (All targets will be thrown on the ground and not buried.) After members checked their schedules, a possible date of Saturday, November 4 was selected. There may be a rain date for Sunday, November 5.

John and Marty bought lots of nice coins for the hunt at Toy Town in Snow Hill - some silver and other cool stuff. Tony would like to make several coin plaques like he does for the Pittsville hunt. Prize tickets will be distributed to all hunters so prizes will be drawn at random rather than be dependent on tokens found in the field, though there may also be a few tokens placed in the field as well. There will be a hunt committee meeting soon. Based on committee meeting and general club meeting discussions, the hunt budget will be $2000 and the hunt fee will be $25.

Craig brought several of the shovels that Tony mentioned last month. Please see him if you would like one. Andy mentioned that the latest issue of the Red Book (coin book) is available at Ollie's.

Scott MacLane reminded members that the ESTC meeting on September 7 starts at 7:00. Tim Kent will be giving a PowerPoint presentation on electrolysis. He will also have a handout sheet available. The ESTC will provide hot dogs and other food and drinks. There will be another special presentation at the October 5 ESTC meeting, when Jonathan Beasley will be speaking on Point Lookout.


Andy would like to make a donation to the church for the use of the field and for maintenance of the building. Someone from the club will also ask if the church has a ladies' auxiliary that will help with a Christmas party, which we would also pay for. We would like to get this done and decided as soon as possible and also would like to have a back-up plan in case the church plans fall through.

Tony mentioned that there will be a planetarium show at Parkside in October. He will let Julie know so she can let the club members know. Andy also talked about other events he will be attending in the next few months.

Chris and Craig will take over the penny to a dollar game.
