Lodge #2148 Home

Welcome to Scottsdale Elks Lodge #2148. 

Since 1960 -- The Original and still the Friendliest Lodge in Arizona

 

 

 

 

Tooting our own horn....thanks to the generousity of our members, and the hard work of our Charity Committee, we had a Bang Up Summer for our charitable donations.  These included more than $600 in cash and food to a no-kill animal shelter, Vista del Camino (Scottsdale's food bank) received a truckload of food and $500 from our Mac N Cheese cookoff, Tonalea and Hirsch Academy received over $1,000 and donations of school supplies to help the kids start the new school year right.

AND.....thanks to the recruting efforts of our members, we now have 791 members and will pass 800 in September!  Thanks to everyone who helped make all this happen.

Welcome Mil Town Grille....after a rigorous vetting process, your House Committee has selected Mil Town Grille as our new food vendor.  If you see Donny or Keenan around the Lodge please join us in welcoming them.

Click here for a quick peek at their menu....

Steak Nights ....First and third Thursdays of each month.  Come on down and enjoy a filet mignon or ribeye steak with garlic mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, and -- of course -- your favorite beverages. Garden salad and a rotating selection of desserts also available for an additional price. Dinner is $20 for either filet or ribeye steak dinners.

Click here for all the details of our updated food service -- NOW six days a week!

 

By the way, we greatly appreciate the generousity of members who donate books, CDs and DVDs for the vets.  Unfortunately the Veterans Admin and the Vets Home has still suspended donations and our storage container is overflowing.  Please do not bring any more books, CDs or DVDs to the Lodge until the VA opens up again.  Thanks.

Corn hole news....Blind draw, double elimination tournaments every Sunday!  Sign ups start at 5:30 pm and bags fly at 6:30pm.  $15 buy in, 90% payout.  Pre-register on www.scoregolio.com. As usual, all your favourite beverages available from the bar.  Come on down and enjoy....

 

  Volunteers are always needed....this is YOUR Lodge and it can't run properly without volunteers -- or at least more than the usual 5-6 who always volunteer!

 No matter what your talents are, we are grateful for any time you can volunteer on any number of projects and programs.  See the signup sheet located in the Game Room for information on the latest volunteer opportunities.  Charity, Brotherly Love, Justice and Fidelity all require volunteers....

2021-2022 Dues now due....if you haven't paid yet... You can pay dues by cash, check or credit card at the Lodge.  If you prefer to pay on line, please visit this secure site https://scottsdale-elks-lodge-2148-bpoe.square.site/and enter your information.  After it has been successfully processed will will mail your card to you, or you may pick it up at the Lodge.

Please remember -- if you've not yet paid your dues you are now officially past due and you will be unable to use our Lounge (bar) until your dues are paid in full.

Queen of Hearts.... The pot stands at over $2,500 and tickets are available all week from the bartenders. Remember, only Elks members in good standing may participate in the Queen of Hearts.  If you have any questions regarding rules, please consult the printed rules posted next to the Queen of Hearts board.  You can purchase tickets throughout the week from the bartender or every Thursday from the ticket sellers roaming the lounge and patio.  VERY IMPORTANT -- if you're not sure you will be physically present at the drawing, be sure to write down a card number you want chosen if you're not there.  Tickets without the purchaser present and without a noted card number to draw will result in one of the Queen of Heart Committee members selecting a card number.  So be sure to mark a card number if you're not sure you will be present at the Thursday 7:30 pm drawings.   All your favorite beverages will be available.  So with the weather improving, plan to spend a nice evening on our beautiful patio and watch the Queen's drawing at 7:30 pm.  Remember, 30% of monies taken in go to our Elks charities.

Volleyball Leagues continue....League play normally Monday through Thursday at 6:15 to 10:30pm and with Tournaments Saturdays and Sundays (check our Calendar Page for full details).  If you're interested in playing, see Shawn McConnell in the volleyball area or check out his website at:  https://www.funkvolley.com/

 

 

PLEASE NOTE:  Table seating will be limited due to social distancing requirements.  We will be serving for two full hours, so there's no need for everyone to rush down at once at 5:00 pm!. We'll also be employing our usual enhanced sanitation procedures. PLEASE COME DOWN AND SUPPORT THE LODGE!

PLEASE patronize pull tabs.  We need the cash!...because of your play, the Lodge has earned over $32,000 in income over the last four years.  You can see the results -- new patio furniture, new TVs on the patio, soon a new gas grill and several other improvements to our building and grounds.  All this was made possible ONLY by the profits from our Pull Tab machine.

So please continue to play and know that the proceeds are going to improve YOUR lodge!

 

The Havin' Fun Big Band....A 13 piece band performs LIVE every Wednesday evening 7 - 9pm. Come down and enjoy music of all styles including Fox Trot, Swing, Waltz, Polka, Rock, and Latin (Cha-Cha, Rhumba, Tango, Samba).  All your favourite beverages available from the bar.

 Get in the know about what's going on....subscribe to our weekly informational emails....Aside from the website, this is the best way to stay in touch with YOUR lodge and what's happening!  We absolutely promise to never, ever, ever rent/sell/give away/disclose or otherwise tell ANYONE what your email address is.  It will ONLY be used for official Lodge communications.

Give it a try - email BPOEScottsdale@Yahoo.com and ask to be added to our weekly email list.  

By the way.....due to rising postage and printing costs, we are discontinuing automatic mailing of the Maverick.  We urge EVERYONE to download the Maverick from either the weekly email or this website.  If for some medical or age related reason you can't use a computer, please let the Lodge Secretary know.  Every download instead of mailing saves your Lodge money that can be better spent on our charitable causes.

Next Lodge Meeting -  Monday October 18 at 7pm.

Stop by and check out our Game Room....four (count 'em four - action backed pinball machines....three regulation dart boards and a new fully stocked snack machine.  Special electrical plugs for your cell phones and other gadgets!
