Our January campout was dry camping and shopping in Quartzsite.

February will be Golden Valley February 21st to the 24th. This will be hosted by the Volks with Bloody Mary’s Saturday morning. Anyone wanting to play golf on Friday should contact Mike Lomeli or Paul Blankenship. Also there will be offroading and it is close to Laughlin and Bullhead. –

March 21st to the 24th will be the AVI hosted by Ethiers and Johnsons. –

April 24th to the 28th will be Tri-State in Mesa coordinated by Hank Thonnard. –

May 16th to the 19th will be Wickenburg hosted by the Sims and Bradleys.

We will be dark for the months of June, July and August. Our first campout after that will be the month of September in Williams. The dates are September 11th to the 15th at Railside RV Ranch. If you have not made your reservations for this campout, you should do so right away as it is very well attended. If they are full, ask to be put on the waiting list to secure a spot.

Welcome to our new members Joe Succuro & Bev Hoover and Buzz and Sue Bancroft. As always, we look forward to getting to know both new couples. Our meetings are always the second Wednesday of every month, except June, July and August when we go dark. They start at 1:00, but if you would like to join us for lunch, please be there by noon so all can be served prior to the beginning of the meeting. Also the Queen of Hearts closes at 12:45 so get there early to have a chance at winning the big money.

The Yacht Club News

The Elks Yacht Club Board wishes everyone a wonderful and healthy 2019 New Year. We are looking forward to our twenty first year as a Club.

We are going to have our yearly EYC Chili cook-off on January the 27th. We will be setting up at noon in the Lodge. We will have prizes for the first, second and third place winner. The board is asking for three volunteers to judge this years’ chili cook-off. Besides prizes for our winners, all the participants that bring in a pot of chili to share and our judges will get a drink token. We are asking everyone else to help in bringing something that will go good with a bowl of Chili.

 The EYC board is in the process of finalizing this years’ events to put in the Elks Lodge calendar. If any EYC member has an idea of something that they would like to see happen this year please let it be known. Look for more upcoming events in your email.
