South Carolina Treasure and Artifact Association - April Minutes April 29, 2015
The SCTAA met on April 27, 2015 with 29 in attendance including visitor, Tim Dwyer. Wayne & Susan King and Kale Smith re-joined the club for a total of 35 members so far this year.
Robert Weaver presented the program about how to stabilize the battery in the Garrett pin-pointer
so it will work without problems. He also gave small wooden blocks to everyone who could use them. We scheduled our May meeting for May 18, one week early, to avoid a conflict with Memorial Day. We also sold raffle tickets for FMDAC.
Upcoming: Randy Reece’s Myrtle Beach trip - June 13-20 (come for all or part of week)
March treasury ended with a balance of $ 687.69. We collected: raffle - $87; donation can - $14; sale of decals - $0; 2015 memberships - $50; Scavenger hunt - $0. The closing balance in the checking acct. is $839.69. We also keep $30 cash in small bills set aside to make change.
