Vagabonds News

 

By the time you read this, our Elks Lodge will have elected a new slate of officers.  Our year begins in April and it’s hard to believe 12 months have gone by since our last election.  Sure don’t know where those 12 months went.  I think it’s an age thing.  In any event, those elected will need our support in order for them to do their job.  Remember, these are volunteer positions and officers give a great deal of their time to make sure our Lodge and Clubs run smoothly.  What a great Lodge we have and it couldn’t happen without our volunteers and support of our officers. 
 
Our Vagabonds Club continues to grow with fun campouts each month with the exception of June, July and August, when we go dark.  The month of February our campout was at Davis Dam hosted by Bob & Barb Volk and Mike & Cheryl Lomeli.  This campout included a Bloody Mary and Bloody Maria breakfast and a barbecue with burgers and brats.   In April we will be hosting the Tri-State rally in Yuma April 19th through the 21st.  This is organized by Jim Goodine.  This is a lot of work for Jim and he always does a great job.   May will be a trip to Wickenburg May 17th to the 20th hosted by Jim & Janet Sims and Tom & Joyce Bradley.  More information will be available on that trip as it 
gets closer. 
 
The Tri-State rally is a big fund raiser for us as we raffle off baskets and a booze wagon and host the horse race game.  We also host an open bar.  Many members participate in competitive games against other Elks Lodges from different states. This results in friendly competition and meeting members from other Lodges.   
 
If you are new to the Vagabonds, welcome.  We look forward to getting to know each and every one of you.  A good way to get to know each other is at our campouts.  We always have a good time. 
 
Our meetings are always the second Wednesday of the month and begin at 1:00.  If you want to join us for lunch, be there by noon so the staff can get everyone served before the meeting begins.  Of course you need to be there no later than 12:45 in order to buy your Queen of Hearts tickets. 
 
Remember – BPOE – Best People on Earth

The Golf Club

Golf Club News:

No report was submitted for this issue however we would like to congratulate Steve Owensby 
on his recent election as Golf League President. 

January Golf Club news;   Greeting golfers we had our semiannual meeting, luncheon and scramble on Oct. 31st.  We made a motion that passed, to have Jerry Pockrant (1st.Vice) and Dan McNulty (Handicap Chair) as charter members of the Golf Club. These two men do the bulk of the work for the golf club, thanks again guys. We also renamed the Presidents Cup Trophy as the Jerry Kaser Memorial Trophy. Jerry was a founding father of the golf club.

We also held our election for new officers. Our new golf club president will be Mr. Steve Owensby, I 
know he will make a good president. All other officer elections will remain the same as last year. The results from the election for a Golf course change is in and the new home course for the Lake Havasu Elks Golf Club will be the Lake Havasu Golf Club, East Course. The first day of play will take place on Tues. Nov. 28th, which will also be the first day of the Presidents Cup tournament.

The Nov. away Golf tournament was held at Mojave Golf resort. The upcoming Presidents cup golf tournament is coming at the end of the month hope you all signed up. There is still a hole in one side pot fund available. This fund is good at Refuge golf course during our Tues play, until we make our official move. Then it will be transferred to the Havasu Golf Club East Course. The amount of $5 per person is the cost to get in.  Be sure to check the board for all upcoming tournaments. All signup sheets will be located on the club board at the lodge or every Tuesday at the Golf Course.
