We held our 2004 Annual Picnic & Club Hunt at the Gallatin City Park on October
9, 2004. The forecast
for A rainy day never did occur and
we continued to enjoy very nice
weather for this annual occasion.
We normally have 4 distinct
hunts. Hunt 1 is silver only
dimes, quarters, half dollars and
dollars. Hunt 2 is the
"Oldies Hunt". Older silver
coins but with the addition of
Indian head pennies, "V" Nickels,
ect. We buried a total of
4,475 for these first 2 hunts.
Hunt 3 changes from year to year.
This year our Hunt Master, George
Knight devised a game of Poker.
He stapled silver dimes in a
playing card and they were buried.
As the coins were found, 5 person
teams were formed. I am not
positive who won but at one time
three 2's were best. The last
hunt is a "token" hunt. 144
tokens were buried which
represented 144 really nice prizes
given away after the picnic lunch.
I think the final tally was
78 club members hunting which is
the most ever. Together with
many family members we all had a
great time. It's all due to the
hard work of our club officers, committees and volunteers
as well as those who support our
funding projects during the year.
