Sheppards Point Outing June 27th

The club outing to Sheppard Point Recreation Area at Heyburn Lake on Saturday, June 27th was a good one. The high temperature was around the 86° mark , a nice cool breeze, and a moderately warm lake water temperature. The week before the outing Heyburn Lake had been 7’ above normal and there was a large amount of submerged driftwood in the swimming area.

The club supplied hamburgers, hot links, hot dogs, buns, condiments, & chips. Roger Eaton again handled the cooking, I think it is now a Tradition. Good job Roger and Thank You! Thanks to John Freeman Jr. for picking up the food, supplies, extra scoops, a crippled up old guy, and transporting them to the outing. And Thanks again to John Hamilton for picking up from the ITTHC storage building, taking & storing the grill & tables and he will be bringing them to this Summer’s water outings. There were 34 members standing in line to chow down on burgers, dogs, and the outstanding food assortment brought by club members. Thanks to all those bringing the great 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 184 tokens in a 40 yards X 60 yards designated area. There were 14 member donated prizes, and 160 tokens for Silver dimes, 16 tokens for Silver quarters, and 8 tokens for Silver half dollars. When the start signal was given there were 21 water hunters frothing the water. After 1 hour+ of hunting, all but 8 dime tokens and 2 Silver half dollar tokens were not recovered. Those tokens not recovered were probably on the North end of the area. There was a larger amount of submerged driftwood on that end.

Member donated prizes: Mermaid wooden jigsaw puzzle by Jinjer Bighan. Watertite box & Mexican coin by Lloyd Coke won by John Hamilton. Walking Liberty half dollar by Jean & Wally Dick won by John Hamilton. $5.00 donated by Roger Eaton won by James Marcum. Telephone pole insulator by Ken Fanning won by John Hayworth. $5.00 donated by Jody & John Hamilton won by Charles Bohuslavicky. $5.00 donated by Jody & John Hamilton won by $5.00 donated by Bill Rouse. Coin/Medal shadow box display by Kim Hauger won by Rachel “Birthday Girl” Hayworth. Garrett cap by Chuck Marcum won by Roger Eaton. Book by Chuck Marcum won by John Hamilton. 5-Golden Dollars donated by Mike Mitchell won by James Marcum. . 5-Golden Dollars donated by Mike Mitchell won by Wally Dick. Bass Pro cap & tape measure by Howie Rosser won by Wally Dick. Brush set by Bill Rouse won by Mathew Fortney.

Some of the higher totals found were: Bill Rouse 20 Silver dimes, 1 Silver quarter, 1 Silver half dollar, & 1 prize token. James Marcum 16 Siver dimes, 2 Silver quarters, 1 Silver half dollar, & 2 prize tokens. Mathew Fortney 17 Silver dimes, 1 Silver quarter, & 1 prize token. Wally Dick 13 Silver dimes, 1 Silver quarter, & 2 prize tokens. Lloyd Coke 12 Silver dimes, 1 Silver quarter, & 1 Silver half dollar. John Hamilton 6 Silver dimes, 1 Silver quarter, 1 Silver half dollar, & 3 prize tokens. John Hayworth 10 Silver dimes & 1 prize token. Ken Fanning 9 Silver dimes & 1 Silver quarter. Mike Mitchell 9 Silver dimes & 1 Silver quarter.

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!
