Busy Weekend on the LPN Golf Course
Perfect weather for the three-day Fourth of July weekend meant lots of golfers on the LPN course. Results for two Saturday events are available online — the Fourth of July couples tournament, and the Long Drive contest.
The Links Dinner Specials Thursday-Saturday
Peter Makens, the new executive chef in The Links kitchen, has planned a set of six dinner specials for this Thursday, Friday and Saturday. A popular appetizer from last week is available again — hand-breaded coconut jumbo shrimp with Cajun marmalade. In the salad category, try the Cobb salad, with mixed greens, housemade ranch dressing, blue cheese, bacon, tomato and avocado. The sandwich special is a sweet onion burger, with a half-pound patty, blue cheese and four-onion jam.
Two entrees will be offered. The shrimp and sausage penne includes jumbo shrimp, Italian link sausage, broccoli and tomato in a Parmesan wine sauce. The other entree is pan roasted chicken, with bacon-cheddar mashed potatoes, and garlic seared green beans. To finish things off, try the homemade brownie sundae with vanilla bean gelato, scratch chocolate sauce, roasted peanuts and toasted scratch marshmallow. Yum!
Iowa Open Volunteers Needed
The Brokers International Iowa Open returns to Lake Panorama National for the sixth year August 14-16. Volunteers are needed to work all three days of the tournament. Volunteers will receive some appreciation gifts, be invited to a kickoff event at Spikes on Tuesday, August 11, and receive a meal and drink ticket to redeem at Spikes on days they work. Starting times for morning shifts will vary from 8 a.m. to 9:45 a.m., with afternoon shifts starting between noon and 1:45 p.m.
Julie and Larry Wykoff and Reuben Hanson are coordinating volunteers. Signup forms are available in the LPN pro shop, at Spikes, and on the Brokers International Iowa Open website at www.iowaopen.com.

Guthrie County Hospital Foundation Outing Tuesday
The Guthrie County Hospital Foundation annual tournament is at the LPN Tuesday. The times for this event were incorrect on the LPN calendar. So a reminder for those playing in this event, registration is at 8 a.m., with a shotgun start at 9 a.m.
Dan Lehman Memorial Tournament July 11
The annual Dan Lehman Memorial golf tournament will be Saturday, July 11, with an entry deadline of Monday, July 6. This is a four-person, best shot event. Entry fees are $30 for LPN members and $60 for non-members, and cover green fees with cart, range balls and lots of prizes. Registration is 11 a.m. with a shotgun start at 12 p.m. Lehman died in March 2008 of a heart attack while skiing in Colorado. His family hosts this memorial tournament, with money raised supporting LPN junior golf programs. Entry form here.
John Staebell Memorial Tournament July 12
The John Staebell Memorial Golf Tournament will be Sunday, July 12. Entry fees for this four-person, best shot event are $30 for LPN members and $60 for non-members. That covers green fees with cart, range balls, hole-in-one contests, dinner and prizes. Registration is at noon with a 1 p.m. shotgun start. Staebell died at his Lake Panorama home in March 2011, after a three-year battle with cancer. He was a 43-year member of the Knights of Columbus, so the group’s annual golf tournament was named in his honor. Funds raised go to Timber Creek Charities, the Panora Fire Department and Knights of Columbus charities. Entry form here.
Rally for a Cure Fundraiser July 23
The LPN women's league is sponsoring its annual Rally for a Cure fundraiser on Thursday, July 23. This event is open to all LPA women golfers, not just league members.

The cost is $20 per person, and registrants can choose from one of four magazine subscriptions. Donated items for the silent auction are being sought.
