The Polar Bear hunt this past week-end was a success! Here are a some of pictures of the event. Thanks to Robert Brock for the photos!
A reminder – the ‘topic’ for this coming meeting (Wednesday, April 11) is the Silver Dime Raffle. Bring us your numismatically – acceptable U.S. silver dimes. For each dime you toss in the pot, you will receive a raffle ticket – put your name on it and deposit it in the container provided. After the break, one winning ticket will be drawn…and the winner and the club will split the dimes. It can be a large haul!
Also remember the scout camp hunt this weekend (and scout’s pancake breakfast) – see the March Probe for details And see the Probe for information on our ongoing gold coin raffle (quarter Eagle coin).
So I added a tide chart to the resources tab. If you need something other than what is there, let me know and I’ll add it.
I also added a gallery in the members only section (password protected) with the Christmas 2017 Pictures there for those who care to see it.
We have a members only Polar Bear hunt coming this Sunday. If you need more information (and are a member) send me an email through the contact us page on the web site and I’ll get that for you.
Tonight’s meeting (Yep it’s on Valentines Day) is all about your best finds of 2017!
Bring the good stuff and your camera. There is bound to be some awesome stuff to see!
Looking forward to it.
This is a great chance for you to ‘get rid’ of items you no longer can use, and to acquire some useful goodies. Detecting-related items are welcome, but the swap may include other ‘tasteful’ stuff. ‘Gently used’ is O.K., but please nothing that is broken or dirty. I will be e-mailing you a catalog of items shortly before the November 8 meeting – look for it.
Items may be bought or traded for. We will try to create a flea-market-type atmosphere. There should be some ‘wandering around’ even among displayers, looking for possible trades. Not used to negotiating/bartering? This can be a fun learning experience in a ‘safe’ environment. Bring some cash with you! (For purchases and making change.) No credit cards…up to sellers whether they will accept checks. Also bring a carry-bag for your treasures.
What I/we Need From You…
A fair turnout for the Rocky Neck Beach Fun Hunt on Sunday. We had 13 members with a few late comers.
The temperature was around 80 degrees when the hunt began at 6pm.
As in the past, the beach was still crowded, but soon started to thin out. Unfortunately, as with our Hammo Hunt, the finds were far and few. Ken G. struck a hot spot when he dug the High coin count with 53, yes 53 coins, a coin spill of 35 coins helped with the total. 2 silver rings were found. We had two scratch winners of $4 each.
A couple members mentioned that if the black flies were quarters we would be rich, they were horrible. For next years hunt at Rocky Neck strong bug spray is advised. Still, everyone said they had a great time and a few members went to Flanders Fish Market after the hunt.
A special thanks to Steve G. for the great tasting cold watermelon again, Thanks Steve!!

Lance Kozikowski a civil war re-enactment soldier and speaker riveted the YTC crowd at their August meeting.
I was lucky enough to be present for the meeting and the man was exceptional. He stayed in character of a civil war soldier and explained the average day/week/month of a soldier in those times. From the clothing and it’s meaning to the day to day and what war was like during those times.
