"Each month we have 2 tokens that are buried in our territory and left for members to find," said club founder Mark Lewis. Whoever found the token last must hide it again and come up with some clues to help find it again. Clues are given out at our monthly meeting.

And for their troubles we have prizes:

Cassandra Augustynowicz won a 1935 Silver 1 Riyal
Jamie Ovens won a 1978 Canadian Silver Dollar

Our Hunters of the Month Are:

Bob Glover (c) 1st place with a Man's Tungsten Ring
Mike Wesloski (r) 2nd place with a Canadian 1978 50 Cent Piece
Dennis Augustynowicz (l) with a Enamelled Heart Pendant

"Our Port Douglas Trip is coming up this weekend. Looking forward to it," concludes Lewis.
