President’s Note: Oct. 10, 2021

Greetings Everyone,

I am very happy to announce we have resumed normal operations with the Oct. 6th meeting. 83 people signed in and we were able to complete our 2020 elections that were so rudely interrupted by a mere 18 months. Also the floor was opened for the positions of Secretary and 1st Vice President, which bring us up to date per our Bylaws for the 2021 year. We had no speaker, but all of the raffles were run. It was truly terrific to see everyone after such a long hiatus. Now, all of the SoCal associations are back up and operating. Kudos to all of the groups, We made it!! 
On Sunday October 10th we had a Beach Metal Detecting event at Ocean Beach which was attended by 5 members.
the results were as follows;
Randy Hegyi     36 targets  a silver ring and new belt                            $3.65 found
Brian Winter     29 targets  1952 wheatie, junk jewelry, fishing weight   $1.62 found
Jerry K              23 targets  sunglasses, junk jewelry, small socket        $1.29 found
Bruce Madsen  10 targets  set of Keys                                                   $1.15 found
Rich Hegyi          9 targets  sterling silver/opal ring                                     .55 found 

THERE IS A NEW MEETING LOCATION!!!
THE ESCONDIDO COLUMBUS CLUB
515 W VALLEY PARKWAY (corner of Center City Pkwy x Valley Pkwy)
the white building with the large American flag painted on it at the southwest corner.

For those of you wondering,  our usual meeting place, Park Avenue Community Center, changed their protocols post pandemic and couldn’t promise us accommodations on a regular monthly basis in the evenings or Saturday daytime, so we had to find a new home.
 The claims have remained open to members in “Good Standing”  for the duration, but now we have begun to update and issue new current membership cards beginning next month November. It will be necessary to fill out your annual paperwork to continue to be a member in “Good Standing”. I will cut folks a little slack, but by January you will need the new card to use the claims.

Stay tuned for more details as they come up.
