The SCTAA met on May 19, 2014 with 24 in attendance including one new member, Cale Smith and one visitor, Steve Horkovy.
Kenny shared about the group hunt at the Tryon Steeplechase grounds. Seven members were able to participate and everyone found something. There will be more opportunities to hunt soon. We’ll get an e-mail out when another date is set. Other members brought in their best finds to display in a “show and tell” program. Robert Weaver presented his method of making sifter baskets for beach hunting with some baskets for sale and one donated as a raffle item.
