South Carolina Treasure and Artifact Association - May Minutes May 26, 2015
The SCTAA met on May 18, 2015 with 28 in attendance including visitor, Robbie Robertson. Steve Horkovy and Richard Revenson joined the club for a total of 37 members so far this year.
Bob Burns presented our program. He is a retired Marine with 30 years of service in multiple locations including Okinawa. He had an old model detector with which he found coins mostly. He did find a ring at a home in Vienna, Austria that he was able to return to the family whose ancestor was buried with it. He also found some WW II items. Bob would like to get assistance from club members to learn the newer detectors and find sites to metal detect.
We have some raffle tickets to sell for the FMDAC at the next meeting. We also need to purchase prize coins for the remainder of the year (July through November).
Upcoming: Randy Reece’s Myrtle Beach trip - June 13-20 (come for all or part of week)
