2016 Fall Club Member Only Hunt

2016 Fall Club Member Only Hunt Roundup

Photos provided by Jean Dick & Bill Watkins. Thank you.

The hunt was held Sunday, October 23rd at the Creek County Fairgrounds. And we could not have had better weather, sunny day, light wind, and a high well above average for late October of 84°. Thanks to those that were out there early helping with stringing the fields, burying the coins, setting up the building, cleaning up the building, and all the other jobs that had to be done for this event to be a success.

And the most important segment of the Fall Hunt, the food! There were 35 ITTHC members lined up for this banquet. There was a great spread of food again. (I could not even sample all of it, but made myself miserable trying!) We probably should have had a second feed after the main hunt. Thanks to all the cooks that made it possible and that includes all you guys that had entries in the “Bobby Crocker” dessert contest.

Winners in the “Bobby Crocker” contest were: 1st – Charly Bohuslavicky with his “Praline Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cake”. 2nd – Ken Fanning with his “Carrot Cake Cheesecake Cake”. 3rd – Bruce Martin with his “Apple Pecan Sopapilla Cheese Cake”. Thank you Rachel Hayworth for again organizing the “Bobby Crocker” contest. It was all OUTSTANDING!

Thanks to Roger Eaton & Cody Reese for planting the Deep Buried Competition Hunt this year. This is a Competition Hunt where the Quarter size targets (1 point) & the Dime size targets (3 points) are buried 6+ inches deep. The top finishers are those with the most points after the 45 minute hunt.

And the winners were: 1st Place with 11 points - Lester M. Taylor ESQ. 5 quarters & 2 dimes; 2nd Place TIE with 6 points - Ken Fanning & Shaun Kucera with 3 quarters & 1 dime. This hunt is a good test of man & machine.

The club allotted $200.00 to purchase prizes for the hunt. Jim Nobles did another good job on the selection of prizes purchased and working the prize board. There were also club member donated prizes. Thanks to all those that donated prizes to the hunt. The prize tokens were stamped and painted Silver Mercury Dimes & Silver No-Date Standing Liberty Quarters. This years hunt also had $177.00 added from the Silent Auction to purchase coins over the amount of entry fees collected.

In the Main Coin/Prize Hunt there were a 28 entries. The hunt field was 50 yards by 90 yards. There were 483 Silver Mercury Dimes in the coin hunt. There was a total of 42 prizes. All of the prize tokens were found.

Pam Cook was the big winner in the 50/50 raffle of $39.00!

If you missed the 2016 Fall Club Member Only Hunt, you missed another good one. Hope everyone had a great time.
