Sheppard Point Water Outing II - July 16th

The club outing to Sheppard Point Recreation Area at Heyburn Lake on Sunday, July 16th was another good one. Weather was good with the high temperature was around the 91° mark with a nice breeze out of the East most of the time. But the water temperature was not quite as refreshing as last time. All in all still a good day for an outing to the lake.

Seeking shade under the spreading sycamore tree:

The club supplied hamburgers, hot links, hot dogs, buns, condiments, & chips. Once again Roger Eaton manning the grill. Good job Roger and thanks again.

And Thanks to John Hamilton for picking up from the ITTHC storage building the club’s grill and tables. There were 33 members standing in line to chow down on burgers, hot dogs, & hot links supplied by the club and the outstanding food assortment brought by club members. There were 54 hamburgers, 24 hot dogs, & 24 hot links consumed, 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 207 tokens in a 40 yards X 70 yards designated area. There were 23 tokens for member donated prizes, and 160 tokens for Silver Mercury dimes, 16 tokens for Silver quarters, and 8 tokens for Silver half dollars. When the start signal was given there were 25 water hunters standing at the ready to begin frothing the water.



After 1 hour+ of hunting ALL of the tokens were found. We do have some good water hunters in the club. Tokens were painted Wheat Cents, painted aluminum pulltabs, painted & numbered .54 Gallagher Minie’ bullets, painted dug up Indian Cents, and painted Shield Nickels, V-Nickel & one Half Cent.

And after a hard day’s work the equipment takes a rest:

And once again, one of the main reasons for this type of outing, besides the food of course, is also, the fun and fellowship of being with people that enjoy the same hobby. And to give non-water hunting members a chance to try their hand at it. There are always extra water detectors & scoops available for use, so if you have not tried water hunting come on out & try it, you might find you like it.

If you missed this outing, you missed a good one. Don’t miss the next one!
