CONGRATS Boy Scout Troop #475

For the second year in a row, Kellyco has been proud to be a part of Camp LaNoChe’s Summer Camp activity line-up. There we met Troops from all around the state, and the country, teaching them about the hobby of metal detecting during our Seeded Treasure Hunt. This year we ran a Troop Leader contest with a grand prize drawing for one Troop to win a Garrett Ace 300 prize package. Included were six Garrett Ace 300 metal detectors and six treasure hunting accessory packages – total value of more than $3,600.00. After a random drawing from all participants, Harry Betz, District Chairman and Leader of Troop #475 from the Anclote District, part of the Greater Tampa Bay Area Council, was drawn as the winner. We presented the prize package to Troop #475 at their weekly meeting in Palm Harbor, FL. We had a great time meeting these scouts, giving them some history and tips of the metal detecting hobby and showing them how to put together and swing their brand new machines. They are excited and ready to go on their first hunt in the coming weeks, and we look forward to hearing what kinds of treasures they’ll find.
