Yooper Coinshooters Metal Detecting Club October Meeting

The October 27th, 2018 meeting of the yoopercoinshooters metal detecting club was called to order at 12:42 pm EST.

We’ll start as we do each meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance.

Dan Trenary called me and he has a bad flu bug and doesn’t want to spread it to the members. Donna has agreed to take his place and be our secretary for a day!!! Thanks a lot Donna. I called him back to tell him that Donna would do his secretary’s report and not to worry. I also assured Dan that he’s been doing a really good job on his new position as club secretary. Dan did mention he’d like to get a decent magnifier for checking out coin finds and I told him I have an extra loupe I’d give him at the November meeting. After the secretarys report a motion was made by Mike Hurkmans and seconded by Pete Harvala to accept it as read.

Next item was Rand’s treasurers report. After Rand’s report a motion was made by Ray Roberts and seconded by Mike Hurkmans to accept Rand’s report as read.

I told the membership that I’d posted a pic of the members getting ready for the Adopt A Highway event on Friday, September 28th. I also posted a pic at the Donut Connection after the Adopt A Highway outing. These pics can be viewed in the members galleries section of our photo gallery.

The November meeting will be on the 24th. We’ll raffle off a gift certificate to go towards a Thanksgiving turkey.

We started planning the Christmas party and White Elephant gift exchange that’ll be in December. We agreed to do it like in the past. The party will be on December 29th which is also the date for our regular December meeting. We’ll also raffle off a gift certificate to go towards a Christmas ham. Also at the December meeting we’ll be drawing for the winner in the 2018 attendance contest. The winner will get a Morgan silver dollar and second place will be a silver Peace dollar. If theres a tie we’ll flip a coin.

The five silver coin drawings, free for members only, went as follows: silver Washington quarter, Sharon Bruner – Mercury dime, Pete Harvala – Mercury dime, Mike Hurkmans – silver Roosevelt dime, Sharon Hurkmans – silver Roosevelt dime, Bill Bruner.

Next was the 50/50 drawing. The winner was: Bonnie Philips

Next was the $20.00 Gas card drawing. The winner was: Mike Hurkmans.

Next agenda item was my usual two jokes. They went over fairly well. It’s hard to find really good clean jokes that are actually funny these days.

Mike Hurkmans made a motion to adjourn the meeting which was seconded by Ray Roberts, all in favor with a show of hands, meeting adjourned at 1:23 pm, EST.

The next meeting of the yoopercoinshooters metal detecting club will be Saturday November 24th at 12:30 pm EST.

Time for snacks. The snacks were brought in by: Sharon Bruner, The Hurkmans, Brian Tepsa, Donna Gillespie and Bill Castle. Thanks to all.

Well, That’s it for this one. If your still looking for treasures, good luck and don’t forget to COVER YOUR HOLES……….PLEASE.
