April 2014

The SCTAA met on April 28, 2014 with 34 in attendance including Linda List, writer of “Landrum Wanderings” newspaper column.  Anyone who has a good metal detecting story is encouraged to contact her and share your tale.

Kenny shared about his recent trip to Edisto Beach, SC.  He and his wife detected for a number of hours and found tokens, a ring, an unfired bullet from the 1890’s, and numerous foreign coins from the 40’s and 50’s from about twelve different countries.  Kenny also is working on a date when we can do a group hunt at the Tryon Steeplechase grounds.  We’ll get an e-mail out when final permission is granted.
