Your Monthly News & Updates
Hey Hey it’s the first of May…Outside Diddlin’ starts today. At least that’s what my dad used to say. It’s finally getting warmer out. Men have been asking Mickey and I if the geese have landed. They keep coming in for a landing, stay for a day or two then leave again. We are not sure if we have the problem licked yet. Any ideas? Let Mickey know. While we love to look at them we do not like what they leave behind. So, watch your step.
The snow is almost gone out on the trails. While walking outside we also request that you ask for a trail towel and not bring the green and white towels outside on the trails. WARNING: It’s already a bad year for ticks. Several members have had these nasty bugs hitch a ride. So check each other more carefully please.
Our First Easter egg hunt that was held in the lodge the Friday before Easter, was a real people pleaser. The prizes that were won: Membership renewal for 1 year, (2) $1.00 bill, (2) one day pass, (2) free entry to any tournament, 1 prize for two day passes, a can of diet coke, an overnight stay for two , and a “diamond” ring. Look forward to this fun treasure hunt coming again this summer.
PLEASE NOTE: We return to potlucks every Saturday starting May 6th to Oct 28th. Pool Tournaments will also now be every Saturday starting at 7:30pm and the 50/50 drawing will resume to start saving money for Member Appreciation Weekend.
Want to work off your day pass or possible over night stay? See Mickey for details. We are always looking for different men with different talents to keep TPL the best place to be.
I want to thank you, the members, for always supporting TPL. Without you we wouldn’t be here.
See you at the lodge!
Event Coordinator and Assistant to the Manager
