18 Members attended
The meeting opened with a lot of medical tales including a few that will slow down our hunting. Some members are on crutches and many members have had some health encounters with relatives.
Tales continued with fun reports about the Penguin Outing last week. A club member (but who???) had seeded the beach with older coins and some silver. Raffles and a “30 second head start” was done as something new to add to the fun.
Reports of some winter storm surges are coming in from hunters. The beaches will be getting ready for our spring hunting. Other discussions were of beach erosion and what to plan in the future.
Christina donated a book “Mapping Boston” to the club that eventually will go to the club library.
Don showed us some photos from his London trip in 2011 when he went “mudlarking” in the past. We had a visit with Aiden’s cat family .
