We are back on the road again and having fun. Our campout in October was at La Paz. This was hosted by the Blankenships, Volks, and Johnsons. There was a lot to do in the area – golf, off roading, bars and more bars. We also had the ladder game set up as well as corn hole. Of course we had happy hours and a pot luck. Friday night we had dinner at the Parker Elks with filet mignon.

Our campout in February will be at Davis Camp February 22nd , 23rd and 24th. This will be hosted by the Volks.

Our Christmas party is December 9th so mark your calendars as this is a very busy month. Our very own member, Slade Rivers, will be playing for this event. We continue to give back to various charities. This month we voted to donate $2,000 to Clothe-a-Child, $1,000 for the Run For The Wall and to continue our quarterly contribution of $250 to the DAV. Last month we contributed $475 to the Lake Havasu High School to feed the kids after their blood drive.

Welcome to our new members Dave & Jan Wilson, Carol Grant & Stanley Foreman, Fred & Leora Bennett, and Ronald & Joanne Buress and our reinstated members Ted & Karen Schlosser and Steve & Suzanne Miller We look forward to getting to know you and seeing you at our campouts.

New members bring new ideas. This helps to keep our club interesting. Bring your ideas for future campouts and we will get them on the calendar. We count on our members to pick the RV Parks and host the events. This is very easy. All you need to do is let us know what is in the area to do, prepare an agenda and we supply the fun.

Gary Haines won the Queen of Hearts at our October meeting. The pot was over $1,200. Congratulations, Gary!

Our regular meetings are always the second Wednesday of the month at 1:00, with the exception of June, July and August, when we are dark. If you are joining us for lunch, please be there by noon so we can all be served prior to the meeting starting. I look forward to seeing all of you at our meetings and/or campouts.

The Yacht Club News

On September 23, the Elks Yacht Club celebrated its 20th anniversary with a party. We invited all of our 16 original charter members that are still active members to a well deserved free meal. Some came up and told stories of how the club got started, others told of all the fun times and things they did, all one needed to say was let’s do this and everyone was on board . A toast was given by Commodore Vito to thank the charter members for starting this amazing club and everyone else for continuing to keep this club active and fun. One hundred and twenty four members came to enjoy a day that marked our 20th anniversary. I want to thank the volunteers that made this event great.

On October 7, the Elks Yacht Club had another party this time to celebrate Oktoberfest. Fritz had everyone clapping and dancing to German music, line dancing and rock and rolling. The plates were full with German potato salad and delicious sauerkraut with a huge bratwurst on a pretzel bun. Everyone there had a wonderful time. Once again I have to thank all the volunteers from the cooks to the servers to the helpers to the ones handing out the German chocolate cup cakes. Without members like you these events could not take place.

Hope to see everyone at the next monthly meeting for more dates on upcoming events. Tickets will be going on sale for our Pig In The Ground at Sara Park on November 18. Sherry Prisciandaro Secretary
