South Carolina Treasure and Artifact Association - September Minutes September 30, 2015
The SCTAA met on September 28, 2015 with 31 in attendance. The club has a total of 42 members so far this year. We have 23 hunters signed up for the Fall Hunt at Lake Lure.
Robert Weaver presented the program titled “Encouragement” in Kenny’s absence. One tip Robert and his son learned the hard way, was to always have a backup detector at a competition hunt. Robert would also like input from members regarding planning and conducting another hunt in November or next spring. He and son, Rodney, made an eBay purchase of a jar of old coins and will report back about what the jar contained.
Members were reminded that officer nominations will take place in October and voting will take place in November.
Upcoming: Lake Lure Hunt October 24, 2015
