2017 Fall Club Member Only Hunt Roundup

2017 Fall Club Member Only Hunt Roundup

The hunt was held Sunday, October 29th at the Creek County Fairgrounds. And we could not have had better weather, beautiful sunny day, light wind, and a high temperature of around of 73°. 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. Thanks to John Hayworth for picking up the stakes & string from the club’s storage building and managing the stringing of the hunt fields. Thanks to Jean & Wally Dick for running the 50-50 Raffle.

And the most important segment of the Fall Hunt, the food! There were 45 ITTHC members lined up for this banquet. There was a great spread of food again. 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 – Wally Dick with his “Yummy Tummy Delight – Coconut Cream Pie” won a 1896-S Morgan Silver Dollar. 2nd – John Hayworth with his “chocolate cheesecake” won a 1925 Peace Silver Dollar. 3rd – John Freeman with his “Banana Pudding Poke Cake” won a US 1 oz. Silver Eagle. Thank you Rachel Hayworth for again organizing the “Bobby Crocker” contest. It was all great!

And a “Blast from the Past” of the Bobby Crocker Bake Off. This photo is from the mid-1990’s when the Bake Off had 19 men entered. This was during the time the ITTHC set a record 130 entries in the Fall Club Member Hunt:

Thanks to Roger Eaton & John Hamilton for planting & managing 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 10 points - Kim Hauger 4 quarters & 2 dimes; 2nd Place with 7 points - Lloyd Coke with 4 quarters & 1 dime. This hunt is a good test of man & machine.

The club allotted $200.00 to purchase prizes for the hunt. Thanks to Jim Nobles for another good job 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 $320.00 added from the Silent Auction to purchase coins over the amount of entry fees collected.

In the Main Coin/Prize Hunt there were a 26 entries. The hunt field was 50 yards by 90 yards. There were 644 Silver Mercury Dimes in the coin hunt. The high total heard was 42 Silver Mercury Dimes & a Silver Walking Liberty Half. The Silver Walking Liberty Half was one not found in the Silver Half Hunt from our National Hunt held Memorial Day Weekend. There was a total of 47 prizes. A Fisher F11 Metal Detector was donated by Indian Nations Detectors. There were 2 of the prize tokens not found. The 2 prizes not found were drawn for from the 50-50 raffle.

The Fisher F11 Metal Detector was won by Chuck Marcum. There were 11 Morgan Silver Dollars as prizes in the hunt and they were won by: Gary Carnes, Pam Cook, Jim Dill, Ken Fanning (2), John Freeman, JJ Freeman, John Hamilton, Rachel Hayworth, & James Marcum (2).
