Cart Path Scramble Cancelled

This year I’m going to cancel the cart path scramble. Between work and putting on the gamble scramble I don’t have time to put it on this year and make it a fun and efficient tournament. I also still have money in the cart path fund from previous years that the members have donated and it’s time for me to put it to use. I apologize for not putting it together this year and promise I’ll have a fun and exciting year for you guys next year.

Cheers,

Travis Lambert.

From the Exalted Ruler

Greetings

Earlier this month I had the privilege of attending Grand Lodge in San Antonio, Texas.  It was a good time to catch up with acquaintances and meet other fellow Elks from around this great nation.  It was a great experience for me to see the full extent of the Elk’s Organization on a National level.  I was very proud to see the positive impacts that the Elks have on communities across the USA.

  There were some other interesting, business related topics, that were covered which I will share more detail on in the August Lodge Meeting.  As I have been by the lodge recently, I can see that many members are taking advantage of the golf course.  I have been busy with other commitments as of late, but plan to spend more time at the lodge later this summer and fall, and hope to see many of you there.

Travis Mechling,

Exalted Ruler

From the Desk of the Secretary

This month’s 249er is quite late as I was out of town the week of the 24th and as you can imagine, I had some catching up to do. You probably notice that our newsletter is short of articles and information. I have asked repeatedly for members and officers to submit articles to me for publication, but there seems to be no real interest, other than the Exalted Rulers message. Thank you Jerry for submitting the Bar/Dining update. That leaves it up to me to add additional content, of which I do not do a very good job. It has fallen on the Secretary over the last number of years to put together, have published and email/mail the newsletter as no one else wants to do it. Publishing  and mailing it is no problem, but the gathering of newsworthy articles is. I am happy to continue doing the 249er, I just need officers/members to send me articles. I am not asking for ideas, I am asking for submission of articles pertaining to our Lodge and all the activities. I know this sounds like I am whining, but the monthly newsletter is not listed as the Secretary’s responsibility. I am just asking for help.

Wayne Krauss

Secretary, PER

Around the Elks

Around the Elks

As we are into our summer months, we only had one meeting in July, as we will in August. At the July 23rd meeting we initiated Gunner Knecht and Branden DeMeyer. Gunner works for the McGregor Company and was sponsored by his Dad Jim. Branden is a Deputy with the Latah County Sherriff ’s office and was sponsored by Janey Wineinger. Please welcome them and help them be involved in our Lodge. Kurt Markuson, sponsored by Mat Sept was voted into membership at that meeting and will be initiated in the next month or so. We also had the first reading for Mark Whitmore, sponsored by Wayne Krauss. We also have a couple of re-instatements coming up with Dave Cada from Potlatch and Charles (Chic) Jensen rejoining.  Dave was a member of our Lodge a number of years ago and Chic comes to us from Alaska Lodge #1662. Great to have them aboard! Unfortunately, Jason and Sharon Barbour have decided they will take out Dimits. They joined last year and feel they have not been able to become engaged with us. They have only been with us a year and we hate to loose them. It is ironic in the respect that Sharon’s number 8812 was drawn for the Pot-of-Gold.  She was not present at the meeting, so she did not receive the pot of $550.00

Bar & Dining Update

Bar & Dining Update

The bar and dining staff had a very busy July, as we supported a number of large events.  The three Sole Survivor events kicked off the month, with the ALS and Marines of the Palouse Fundraisers the following two weeks.  We capped off the month with the Gamble Scramble Fundraiser and Curt Neely’s class of 1963 reunion events.   All the events were successful with members and guests enjoying the summer activities.

The Friday couples golf and steak nights have grown this summer.  Besides the usual golfers and regulars for steak/salmon dinners we have had a number of business’ use the night to have dinner with their employees.  Most Friday nights we have had between 20 and 30 guests.  The steak nights will continue through September.  It is a great way to enjoy an evening with family or friends on the patio.

Great day! 

  • Bryden Brown defeats defending champion Ben Mack on second extra hole. It was a gritty heavy weight brawl ending with par edging out bogey on the 7th hole. Clutch putts were made by both competitors and shot making was at a premium. Quality play was demonstrated by all participants starting on the first tee.

Participants —

  • Hailey Brown
  • Bryden Brown — winner
  • Burke Brown
  • Ben Mack — runner-up
  • Braiden Taylor
  •  Dylan Taylor

Jordan Jumper Chapman / Elks Golf Course’s 90th Anniversary

Saturday August 25th marks the 90th anniversary of what is now the Moscow Elks Golf Club. It was fully open for play on August 25th 1928 as the Moscow Golf Club (later purchased by the Elks).

To commemorate our 90th, we are reviving the Jordan Jumper Chapman for a one day run on Saturday. It will be a full couple’s Chapman — both players playing a tee shot from their respective tees then each player hitting their partners tee shot before choosing the ball to complete play on the hole in alternating shots.

This will be an 18 hole event followed by an informal dinner/social and awards presentation.  Dinner and awards will be at 6:30 and play needs to be completed by 6:00 PM for awards to be determined. Reserve your tee time (no later than 2:00 PM) when you sign up, or come on out between noon and 2:00 and we will pair you up. If you are interested in playing but need a partner for the event, contact us at golfcommittee249@gmail.com and we will help find you a partner for the Chapman.

Price will be $25 per couple, which includes dinner and prizes for low gross, low net (Calloway) and assorted other goodies. In addition the winning couple will have their names engraved on the “Jordan Jumper” plaque in the tournament room. Non-pass holders will pay a single green fee for the alternate shot team.

Carts needed for Marines of the Palouse Fundraiser

Carts needed for Marines of the Palouse Fundraiser

The Marines of the Palouse Fund Raiser is Saturday, July 21 a 10:00 am.  The lodge has 7 golf carts to rent, which will not be enough for their golf tournament.  We are requesting anyone who would like to loan their golf cart out for the day to contact the lodge office.  We are not sure how many carts we will need, but we are guessing at least 7 to 10.

The rental fees for the carts will go into the lodge charity account.  We would appreciate your help.

Much Thanks!!

Jerry
