Tee Up for Tim Sign Up 2012

The 2012 Tee Up For Tim fundraiser will be held Friday July 13th, at Finkbine golf course.
This is the third and final year, completing the tour of area courses where Tim was the PGA professional.

In the first Tee up for Tim in 2010, hosted by the Iowa City Elks Club, over $15,000 was raised to assist with Tim’s future living expenses. In 2011, Saddleback Ridge hosted the event with thousands more raised and donated to On With Life in Ankeny, and Pathways in Iowa City, two organizations that have helped Tim over the past few years.

The final event will be held at Finkbine, where Tim was the Director of Golf and PGA professional at the time of his aneurysm. Proceeds this year will be donated in Tim’s name to the new UI Hawkeye Varsity Golf Complex.

We hope you can join us either as a participant or sponsor. Click here for sign-up information –>   Tee up for Tim Sign Up 12

Thank you!

FREE Passes to use the Club!

Hello Elks Members,

The Board of Directors hopes your summer is going well. We are pleased to announce free passes that will be distributed to all golf members (both single and family) and all pool members.

The golf pass is good for one free 18-hole greens fees. Bring out any non-Elk member (potential member – wink, wink) and that person plays the magnificent course for free. Each single and family golf member will receive such a pass for each of June, July, August, and September (4 passes total). Pick up your June pass in the pro shop!

The swim pass is good for one free family swim (yep, the whole family gets in for free). Bring out any non-Elk family and that whole family can enjoy the pool area for free. Each pool member family will receive such a pass for each of June, July, and August (3 passes total). Pick up your June pass at the snack shack at the pool!

Also be on the lookout for various activities (golf tournaments, pool parties) that will be taking place at the club this summer. Come out and enjoy YOUR club!

Sincerely,

Elks Board of Directors

Attention Members!

The Elk’s House (where our golf course Superintendent resides) and the Elk’s Lodge building are each in dire need of roof replacement.

The Elk’s Board of Directors have sought and received competitive quotes for each of these jobs. The quotes for the two projects are for approximately $5,000 and $24,000 respectively.

We have reviewed the quotes and selected the contractors for the work. Motions were made, seconded and approved to utilize the Elk’s Capital Improvement Fund to pay for this need. Now, we must present this motion to the Elk’s Lodge Membership for vote of approval or denial. This vote by lodge membership is scheduled for the next Lodge Meeting on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 7:00 PM.

This work would, once again, reduce the balance of the Capital Improvement Fund substantially, which is not desired if it can possibly be avoided. We also desire to remain debt-free by not securing a bank financial loan.

Therefore, we would like to initiate a Capital Improvement Fundraiser to help off-set at least a portion, if not all, of the expenses to replace both of these roofs. We are asking our membership for donations of $50 – $100, that are very specifically earmarked for this “Roof Repair” need. Of course, any and all donations will be most appreciated and graciously accepted.

Sincerely,
Elk’s Board of Directors
