LPN Eagles Club Outing Results

The 8th annual Eagles Club outing was Wednesday. Membership in the club is open to anyone who makes an eagle (gross or net) in an LPN sanctioned event, or in the presence of another Eagles Club member. This year, 29 Eagles Club members participated in the annual outing, which uses the modified Stableford system for scoring, and all players receive 100% of their handicap.

In the Stableford system, the highest score wins and points are assigned based on the result of each hole played. A double eagle earns eight points, an eagle earns five points, and a birdie earns two points. Pars don’t earn anything, a bogey means a one-point deduction, and a double bogey or worse means a three-point deduction. Bill Weddingfeld took top honors with a score of 12, followed by John Bruckshaw and Steve Ahrendsen in a tie for second place with scores of 11. See all results here.

12th Annual Iditarod

Iditarod XII will be Sunday, Nov. 10, with tee off at 11 a.m. This is a four-person, best-shot tournament that involves playing the LPN golf course in an entirely new way. The cost for LPN members is $10 per person, with non-members playing as guests of a member at $25 per person. Join the enduring spirit of the last great round of the 2013 season! Call the pro shop at 755-2024 to get signed up.

Book Holiday Parties Now

As the 2013 golf season winds down, it's time to come up with ways to keep busy until spring. Holiday parties and extended family get-togethers always are welcome events. Weekend dates in November and December already are filling up, but there still are plenty of dates available for events in the LPN banquet room or dining room.

Call the LPN conference center main desk at 755-2080 and work with John Dinnebier to plan the perfect winter event. Remember, lodging also is available through the LPN Inn and Suites. So while you're at it, reserve a spot for out-of-town visitors.
