August 2015

South Carolina Treasure and Artifact Association - August Minutes            August 26, 2015

The SCTAA met on August 24, 2015 with 26 in attendance.  The club has a total of 41 members so far this year; new/first-time members:  Glenn and Lolita Dudek and Robert Valenta.  So far, we have 20 hunters signed up for the Fall Hunt at Lake Lure.

The program was a sharing time.  Allen Sheriff brought his Civil War memorabilia, some he has found and some he purchased.  This led to a discussion about the dangers of old cannonballs that have fuses.  They can explode because moisture can cause the black powder to turn to gas.  Something like a shovel strike can produce a spark that results in an explosion.  Spartanburg’s Croft State Park is dangerous because it still contains live ammunition that was used for practice during World War I.

Upcoming:  Relic hunting at Cowpens National Battle Field for the Rangers - August 29 and 30
