Reminder of the “Best Little Treasure Show in Texas” to be held at the Kuykendal Center in Llano on March 23 -24.

We will have raffles on Sunday, thank you to all who are donating items and to all who may purchase raffle tickets. If you want to participate in the coin shoot, be sure to sign up online at Texastreasureshow.com. Our club raffle will be on Sunday after the coin shoot.This event will be considered our March meeting and raffle.

We are still discussing possible speakers for our April meeting. Possibly Gypsy Jewel, but her fuel, accommodations and food will have to be considered, Local speaker & author, W. C. Jameson, or possibly the speakers on the England Metal Detecting Event. Any of those would be very interesting to hear.

Thank you to Tom Ashworth for his continuation speaking on workings of metal detectors, hitting targets, ground balancing, noise cancellation, sensitivity, how to read the screen and discrimination. He is very knowledgeable on all these subjects and hopefully the info. has been very helpful.

February raffle completed, remember your raffle tickets will be saved for our big December raffle. Thank you again for purchasing tickets.

Meeting adjourned.
