As you may have noticed, this Deer Lodge website has not been available for a few days.  Last week we started having some problems at the Web Hosting Service that hosted our web pages for the last 5 years. They made software changes that resulted in us no longer being able to update anything on our website.  The only solution they could offer was to migrate us to a higher level of their service with a monthly charge of at least four times that of our current service.
The offer was declined in favor of moving our website to another Web Hosting Service.
Another company was contracted and our website data copied over.

The last draw took place at the Mens Windup on April 11 with a healthy contribution being made to the pot.  There was no winner.
   
We are changing our draw dates this year from just Tuesdays and Wednesdays to a staggered day system in order offer the other leagues a chance to take part in the draw.
We will start off  with Monday&Tuesday this week then Tuesday&Wednesday next week followed by Wednesday&Thursday the next week and then Thursday&Friday, Friday&Monday etc.  A full set of dates for the season is available, click ......HERE.

As a reminder, the format of this fundraiser is a playing card progressive raffle.
A standard deck of cards is used (including the 2  jokers - 54 cards in total).   On each draw night, raffle tickets are sold from 6:30  to  9:00 pm  with 50% of sales going towards the progressive pot.  One ticket is then drawn from the tickets sold that night with the purchaser given the chance to pick a card from the deck.  
If the Eight of Clubs is picked then the purchaser is the winner of the accumulated pot !   Otherwise the purchaser receives a consolation prize of $20 (or $25 if a Joker is picked) and the losing card is removed from the deck.

> 2014 Golf Day & Registration BBQ (posted June 15, 2014)

Golf Day 2014 On Friday afetrnoon June 13th, over 50 golfers assembled for a shot gun start in the annual Deer Lodge Golf Day Texas Scramble at the Assiniboine Golf Club. The showers held off untill the very end of the round making it quite a nice day out on the course.
The Registration BBQ at the club kicked off after the golf. The big BBQ (courtesy of Muenther, the owner of the Foodfare at Mt Royal & Portage Ave.) was again available for everyone to grill their steaks. 
Following dinner the scores were tallied and organizer Tony Feheregyhazi handed out the prizes.  There was a tie for the low net team score for the day at 64 turned in by the John Alex, Tom Alix Tom Krahn & Mark Neuendorff group and the Cody Pearse, Brian Harrison, Chris Franklin & Sam Hart group. They both got the first place prizes.  Mike Mahon, Ian Mahon, Blair Smith and Kevin Exell were the the team with the second lowest net at 65.  The 3rd lowest team net score of 66 was the 2 man team of Jim Bender and Doug Bauer.  Tom Alix won the prize for the  longest drive of the day on hole number 3.  Closest to the pin honors went to Sam Hart for his shot on the par three 4th hole. 
After all the completed curling application forms were processed the names were put in a box and shuffled for the random selection for the free membership for 2014-15.  Congratulations to Wes Stevens  who skips a team on Tuesday nights.
A large thank you goes to Tony Feheregyhazi for organizing the day... and to Jody at the bar.
