Finds of the Month Guidelines
                     
At each meeting club members may enter their finds from the
previous month in each of three categories:

            1) Civil War and Pre-Civil War relics
            2) Coins
            3) Treasure

Club members then vote on first, second and third place in each
category. The winners receive "points" for each place (five
points for first place, three points for second place and one
point for third place). At the end of the year, prizes are
awarded in each category to the persons with the most points in
that category.  In addition, the person with the most points
overall, calculated by combining the points earned in all three
categories during the year, is named "Master Hunter of the Year".

Awards for the previous year are presented during the February
meeting. First-, second- and third- place winners in each
category receive a plaque; each first-place winner also receives
a cash prize of $25.  The "Master Hunter" winner receives a
plaque and $25.  Rules for entry of finds are as follows:

   1. Finds must have been made in the month prior to the
      meeting.  A "month" is the period from one club meeting to
      the next (not a calendar month). "Stockpiling" of the items
      found during one month for an entry at a later meeting is
      not allowed.

   2. Only one item may be entered in each category.

   3. A "verification committee" examines each entry just before
      the break to ensure correct labeling. Any questions about
      items entered should be raised then. The owner of the item
      submitted must be present at the club meeting until voting
      is finished.

   4. Items entered must have been found while "actively
      hunting". Some examples of "finds" which are not
      appropriate for entry would therefore be: (a) a Civil War
      Belt buckle you found in the lining of your great-
      grandfather's trunk, (b) a valuable coin you received in
      change or found while reupholstering a sofa, a ring found
      in the parking lot while on your way to your car. These
      are simply examples--let the spirit of treasure hunting be
      your guide.

   5. Any find which is not a Civil War/Pre-Civil War relic or
      coin should be entered in the "Treasure" category.
