The SCTAA met on September 28, 2009 with 32 in attendance including visitors:"Bubba" Hiram Stutts and Joe Reid; and two new members:Terry Barcelona and Joe Cantrell.

The program was a Fun Hunt/EASTER-EGG STYLE HUNT planned by board member Robert Weaver.Everyone enjoyed it even though it was difficult to see since it was growing dark.




Our annual big event, the Lake Lure Hunt will be Saturday, October 24, rain or shine.We have 18 members who've paid the $30 hunt fee so far and another 5 plan to pay on hunt day.We have 36 people expected for the hot dog cookout.We began taking payment for 2010 dues and have six so far.

We have set the date for our Annual Awards Banquet for January 11, 2010 at 7 p.m. at Ryan's Steak House in Greer.A motion was made and passed to change the yearly awards due to the high price of gold.1st place = 1/10 oz. gold coin, 2nd and 3rd place = gold 2 peso coin, 4th and 5th unchanged.

August treasury ended with $1,442.21.Then I subtracted $50 memorial for Mrs. Ruby Mullinax leaving $1,392.21We collected Raffle - $105, Donation Can - $12, Hunt Fees - $480, 2009 Memberships - $75, 2010 Memberships - $150.The ammended treasury ended with$2,214.21.This is a discrepancy of $20 due to a math error.(My apologies for the mistake!)Ralph Childers won the raffle for the silver dollar.Our next meeting will be October 26.
