|November 2023||The Newsletter of the Shore Seekers Artifact & Recovery Club||Vol. 33, No. 11|
Our guest this month was Don Mahoney, a friend of John Rebman and the winner of our DEUS detector raffle.
Extra copies of The Seeker were available.
Minutes were approved as distributed.
There was more talk of the members' only hunt. Several have already paid for the hunt, others may pay on the day of the hunt. Hunting will start at 10 a.m., seeding starts at 9. We will be doing lunch on our own since this will not be an all-day event. There will be all surface finds, no digging. Prizes will be drawn from tickets. No pulse machines allowed and headphones are preferred. We need to make a good impression on the powers that be at the church before asking to have a digging hunt. Please bring pinpointers as this may make your experience easier. The number of prize tickets drawn will depend on the number of paid participants.
We discussed the Christmas party. We haven't heard anything from the church yet if the ladies' auxiliary would be interested in cooking for us. The building is open for us on the date of the party but we don't have definite plans yet.
John Rebman told of his recent detecting trip to the UK. He found over a dozen hammered silver coins, as did his friend Don. All found Roman coins and some neat artifacts. There was gold found by the tour group, but none by John. John won't receive this year's finds for some time but he will bring in finds from previous tours in the next several months so members can see them.
Penny to a Dollar winners were John Peregoy (4 prizes), Don Mahoney, Scott MacLane, Phil McCutcheon and Marty Pratt.
Scott Taylor was the 50/50 winner. The silver half dollar winner was John Rebman. The attendance winner was Dan Spielman.
