Sheppard Point Water Outing September 17th

The club outing to Sheppard Point Recreation Area at Heyburn Lake on Sunday, September 17th was another good one. Weather was a little iffy with a tad of rain on & off most of the day. But it was a Water Outing, you are suppose to get wet at a Water Outing, Right? Had a nice cool breeze all day with the high temperature around the 80° mark. Nice cool lake water to chill out in. All in all still a fun day for an outing to the lake.

Friends – Food – Fun:

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 43 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 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 262 tokens in a 40 yards X 70 yards designated area. There were 25 tokens for member donated prizes, and 200 tokens for Silver Mercury dimes, 24 tokens for Silver quarters, and 13 tokens for Silver half dollars. When the start signal was given there were 22 water hunters standing at the ready to begin frothing the water.

After 1 hour+ of hunting all of the tokens were found but 1 token for a Silver Half Dollar. We do have some good water hunters in the club. Tokens were painted Wheat Cents, painted aluminum pulltabs, painted & numbered .51 Gallagher Minie’ bullets, painted dug up Indian Cents, and painted Shield, Buffalo, & V-Nickels, & one Half Cent.

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!
