This is July in Oklahoma? Really?

Overcast skies, high temperature 78°, and refreshingly cool water? It must be all that “Global Warming” about which they say there is a scientific consensus!

The club outing to Sheppard Point Recreation Area at Heyburn Lake on Saturday, July 19th was a good one. The club supplied hamburgers, hot links, hot dogs, buns, condiments, & chips. Roger Eaton with help from Ken Fanning handled the cooking. Good job guys, Thank You! Thanks again to John Freeman for picking up the food, supplies, extra scoops, and transporting them to the outing. And Thanks again to John Hamilton for taking and storing the grill & tables and bringing them to the water outings.

There were 42 members standing in line to chow down on burgers, 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 there were scattered as evenly as possible 231 tokens in a 40 yards X 60 yards designated area. There were 21 tokens for member donated prizes, and 210 tokens for Silver Dimes, Silver Quarters, & Silver Halves. The tokens were painted Wheat Cents, painted & numbered Cents, and painted square pulltabs.

When the start signal was given there were 25 water hunters frothing the water. After 1 hour+ of hunting, all but 2 of the square pulltab tokens for Silver Quarters were not recovered. There were several coins, and a few junk jewelry items that were also found. The Sheppard Point Swimming Beach is very clean which makes for easy finding & recovery. As you can see, we did not leave much to be found.

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!
