Elks’ BULLetin #13

Volume 13, 2016

bullElks BULLetin

Our lodge and golf course had a great summer, but it is coming to an end.  The State Convention created some excitement and helped the lodge financially, all the sole survivor show downs gave us a number of thrills and new champions, we supported ALS and cancer research with a couple of successful tournaments, and the 7-iron and Gamble Scramble tournaments exceeded our expectations.  Our golf leagues brought out a steady stream of golfers throughout the summer.  The end of August our leagues will be done and our members will realize summer is almost over and it is time to go back to work or school. 

Keeping the lodge and golf course busy for the fall months is critical to having a successful year.  We do have a number of events planned for the fall, but it is important to have our members using the facility on a regular basis.  We are trying to create an atmosphere at the lodge that will give our members a reason to come out and use the facility.  Now is the time to create a number of events for the fall and winter months.  We have a few events already planned that should be fun.  We are planning on continuing our weekly Friday steak or seafood night.  We would like to have a family pasta or burger night a couple times a month.   We will have our annual wine tasting evening again in October.  The golf season doesn’t end until the first of November, so there has been talk about creating a weekly “game” for golfers with different formats.  Some have suggested card games, Bunco tournaments or bingo nights throughout the month.  And of course there is always Monday and Thursday night football.

Please call the office (208-882-2577) and share your ideas about what you would like to see on our calendar for the fall and winter months.  If this is successful, we would be able to stay open all winter instead of closing the middle of November through the middle of March.  It’s up to you!!

Enough Elk droppings for today,

THE BULL

Elks BULLetin #12

Volume 12, 2016

Moscow

bullElks BULLetin

I know the BULLetin is an information piece for our members and I normally would not use it to promote a person or event.  In this case I am making an exception as it pertains to one of our members.  Mike Sprenger’s family and friends are putting together an auction and golf tournament to raise funds to help fight ALS. ALS Association Team Sprenger and Team Gleason are putting on a 9-hole, 4 person Scramble Golf Tournament on Saturday, July 16th.  This will be a split day tournament with morning and afternoon shotgun starts.  It should be a fun event for non-golfers as well as our die hard golfers.  With the tournament being a 9-hole event, it is more about the auction and a fun day of supporting friends.

unnamed[2]

Some of the folks from last year’s event 

Here are some details for the day:  Tee times for the morning (9am to 11:30am) and the afternoon (1:30pm to 4pm).  Lunch is being provided for all participants, (11:30am to 1pm) and non-golfers are encouraged to purchase lunch.  There will be a live auction throughout the day, and a live band playing from 11:00am until the party is over.  A $200 team payment will be required at check in.  Build your own teams for the tournament or if you don’t have a set team come anyway and we’ll help you figure it out.  There will be games, music and “beverages” on the course for your entertainment.  You can register at Team Sprenger.

Team SprengerTeam Gleason - Lets Put Our Heads Together and Find a Cure for ALS

 

 

I think it is important to support a fellow Elk in a battle he is so valiantly fighting.  Also, because the Elk Lodge only has 6 golf carts we are asking members to loan out their golf carts if possible.  There will be a signup sheet in the bar area soon.  Your help and support will be appreciated more than you know.CAR%20MAGNET%20001[1]

Friday Steak & Couples Golf

New Picture (47)Friday night steak & couples’ golf is back

Golf will be in an alternate shot format with men off the odd tees and women off the even.  Turn in your scores and we will keep a season record and award prizes at completion of the season and at intervals throughout the season.

  • Members holding a season golf pass pay $20 a couple for two steak dinNew Picture (81)ners.
  • Members not holding a season golf pass pay $30 a couple for nine-holes of alternate shot golf and two steak dinners.
  • Guests playing with a member can pay $30 a couple for nine-holes of alternate shot golf and two steak dinners.

This is a great way to introduce non-member friends to our facilities as well as an opportunity for golfing spouses to bring their typically non-golfing partner to the course in a relaxed environment.

From the Exalted Ruler

Dear Members,

I caP1010413n hardly believe it is time for the June newsletter. For me, students have alr
eady left home for the summer, golf league started, and both my kids have just finished another soccer season. Which means summer is here and it is a great time to come out to the Lodge for gorgeous sunsets out on the deck, sip your favorite beverage, meet friends, play golf, or all of the above.

P1000482 I want to recognize Chelsey for doing such a great job turning around the Bar and Dining experience into something positive that we can all enjoy. I also want to recognize Trent for quickly picking up the superintendent responsibilities to make sure league started on time.

Brad and Shelley Anderson have done a great job of creating a members’ lounge within the Lodge, just in time for summer convention, that will create a space where members can share fellowship on those cold evenings when the weather keeps us inside.

Finally, keep looking at the Lodge calendar for upcoming events. We plan to have a Fathers’ Day special where you can treat Dad to lunch and golf, or just lunch if Dad isn’t into golf.

Take Care,CAR%20MAGNET%20001[1]

Corey Ray, Exalted Ruler
