Heyburn Park Water Outing

Thanks to Roger Smith for the Photos

No rain, bright sunshine breaking out about meal time, high temperature 76°, and cooling water, the club outing to Heyburn Park on Lake Heyburn on Saturday, September 19th was a another good one. Ended up with a beautiful day!

The club supplied hamburgers, hot links, hot dogs, buns, condiments, & chips. Roger Eaton again handled the job of cooking. Good job Roger, Thank You! Thanks again to John Freeman for picking up and hauling the food, supplies, extra scoops, and the one old guy. And Thanks again to John Hamilton for bringing, and taking & storing the grill & tables.

There were 31 members standing in line to chow down on burgers, dogs, and food brought by club members. Thanks to all those bringing the 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 191 tokens in a 40 yards X 70 yards designated area. There were 14 tokens for member donated prizes, and 160 tokens for Mercury Dimes, 12 tokens for Silver Quarters, & 5 tokens for Silver Halves. The tokens were painted 4 color Wheat Cents, numbered Jefferson Nickels, two types of painted numbered brass slugs, & painted/numbered/lettered Gallagher Carbine Civil War Bullets molded using Civil War lead from fired bullets and molded in a Gallagher bullet mold that was found at Battle of Jenkins Ferry Arkansas.

When the start signal was given there were 21 water hunters frothing the water. After 1 hour+ of hunting ALL of the tokens were found. End of season, several months of experience gained, less junk, and an area that was a little easier to recover your targest = NO TOKENS LEFT BEHIND!

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 good one. Don’t miss the next one!
