Last Hurrah!

September 22nd Water Outing to Sheppard Point

Photos furnished by "TheParkers"

The club’s last water outing of the season was to Sheppard Point Recreation Area at Heyburn Lake on September 22nd was a good one. A bright sunny day, the high temperature was around the 81° mark, and nice cool water in the swimming area. We had shade and a fairly calm breeze all day

The club supplied hamburgers, hot links, hot dogs, buns, condiments, & chips. Roger Eaton again handled the cooking. Great job Roger and Thank You! Thanks again to John Hamilton for taking and storing the grill & tables and bringing them to water outings. There were 36 members standing in line to chow down on burgers, hot links, hot dogs, and food brought by club members. Thanks to all those bringing the outstanding side dishes and desserts. If you went away hungry at this outing, again, it was your own fault.

After the big feed scattered as evenly as possible were 191 tokens in a 40 yards X 60 yards designated area. There were 6 tokens for member donated prizes, 167 tokens for Silver Mercury dimes, 12 tokens for Silver Quarters, & 6 tokens for Silver Halves. When the start signal was given there were 17 water hunters frothing the water. After 1 hour+ of hunting, all but 5 dime tokens were not recovered. There were several tokens from the Three Forks hunt earlier in the month, a fair number of coins, a few jewelry items. As you can see, no matter how good you think you cover an area there is always something left. Thanks to all those bringing extra water detectors and scoops.

John Freeman found a “maverick” 18K Gold Wedding Band ring during the “planted” hunt. It was an old ring with lots of wear and it had been in the water for a good long time. Daniel Parker found two earring studs.

Member donated prizes: A head lamp donated by Len Eames won by Bill Rouse. A Garrett goodie pouch donated by Ken Fanning won by Ken Fanning. $5.00 donated by John Hamilton won by Chuck Marcum. Headphones donated by Chuck Marcum won by Lee Wierzchowski. A $5.00 Walmart Gift Card donated by Bill Rouse won by James Marcum. A Clock donated by Lee Wierzchowski won by Bill Rouse.

Some of the higher totals found were: Bill Rouse 14 Silver Mercury Dimes, 2 Silver Quarters, & 2 prize tokens. Lee Wierzchowski 15 Silver Mercury Dimes, 2 Silver Quarters, & 1 prize token. Wally Dick 15 Silver Mercury Dimes & 2 Silver Quarters. John (JJ) Freeman 15 Silver Mercury Dimes & 2 Silver Quarters. Chuck Marcum 12 Silver Mercury Dimes, 2 Silver Quarters, & 1 prize token. Len Eames 10 Silver Mercury Dimes, 1 Silver Quarter, & 1 Silver Half. John Freeman 11 Silver Mercury Dimes & 1 Silver Half. Cody Reese 10 Silver Mercury Dimes & 2 Silver Halves. John Hamilton 9 Silver Mercury Dimes & 1 Silver Quarter. James Marcum 10 Silver Mercury Dimes.

Again, one of the main reasons for this type of outing, besides the food of course, is to give non-water hunting members a chance to try their hand at it. Also, the fun and fellowship of being with people that enjoy the same hobby.

Again, if you missed this outing, you missed a great one. Don’t miss the next one!
