 Social & Hobby Clubs: The Calusa Cruise Club

<br>Things<br> To DoThe Calusa Cruise Club's Treasure Hunt, held on Saturday, September 7th was a great success. On Friday, Commodore Jack Hexter, accompanied by Francis Everhart, drove all over the local waters, placing 7 marker buoys between the Anclote River and the Cotee River, and out to Anclote Island. Each marker buoy had 10 coded ribbons on it. Participants were given distances and bearings from known markers and could start at any time on Saturday morning to try to find the buoys. A total of 9 boats with 29 participants searched the local water, pulling a ribbon off each buoy they found. Everyone returned to Bob and Lori Sherley's home for a cookout and

the awards, which were pirate’s chests with gold doubloons, beads and a compass. Bob and Lori Sherley, accompanied by Ron Klapperich, was the only boat that managed to find all seven markers and won the event.

Several boats found 4 and 5 makers, Dick and Dee Keegan, accompanied by Roger and Natalie Parker found only two, but with the scoring system, ended with the lowest score, a negative 2 points. Ron and Diane Ekovich, who forgot to sign up to participate (but did anyway) and thus received the directions at a late time on Saturday morning, then went out and found the first marker.

As Ron pulled the boat into neutral to retrieve the ribbon from the buoy, his engine quit and would not start. After calling Sea Tow, for a battery jump, they made it to the party to receive the booby prize.

The Calusa Cruise Club was joined in this event by several members and boats from the Gulfwinds Sailing Club.

For more information about the Calusa Cruise Club, which meets on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at the Gulf Harbors Civic Assoc, please call Commodore Jack Hexter 813-235-3358 or Rear Commodore Jim Turner 404-218-8878
