"The best treasures come from the ground"


We had 24 people brave the weather for the November meeting.  We had some great finds of the months this month because the weather is starting to cooperate for the hunting.  Although the northern did hit the day of our November meeting.  Tom Moss spoke to us about artillery at the battle of Vicksburg.  He brought a real civil war artillery shell for us to see.  Terry Smith told us about a spot where he has found numerous bottles that were antique.  He found alot of salve bottles and different color glass bottles that were period.   

Congratulations to Tim Lester who has been duly elected as our new President of the club starting in January.  Thank you to Kenny Mathews for being our President for a last couple of years.  He did a great job for us and wanted to take some time off from being President.  

Don't forget our next month's December meeting is our Christmas party.  The meeting starts at 6:00PM and it would be great if everyone brought something for the meal.  Also we will have another BAD SANTA gift exchange.  Anyone that wants to participate will need to bring a gift valued at least $10.00.  Hopefully everyone will want to participate.  Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!

Our very own Terry Smith has been asked by the Kilgore Oil Museum to set up a huge display of items he found in ghost towns until the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.  Please go pay a visit to the Oil Museum not only to see his fantastic display but to see the Oil Museum and all of its splendors!

Address: 1301 S Henderson Blvd, Kilgore, TX 75662
Hours: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10AM TO 5 PM

We had 25 members appear at our September meeting.   We did not have a Speaker of the Month due to having our club auction for our upcoming October 19th, members only silver hunt at Terry and Marie's house.  Thanks to all who brought items to donate for the auction.  We do not have the total yet but it all goes in to our hunt. 

Terry Smith talked about the Fossil hunt that eleven members attended on August 24th.  There were some pretty neat fossils found there.  Thanks to David Glover and Terry and Marie for bringing their finds for us to see. 

Don't forget there will be a $25.00 entry fee for the silver hunt as this is a fundraiser for our cake auction during our Spring Open Hunt.
