Quarantine Mine Haunted House Sat/Sun Oct 30th/31st


This year, Ouray Elks member Tim Walters is putting together a fantastic display for Halloween. His theme is the “Quarantine Mine.” Watch the Lodge transition further and further into a haunted house each day in October! He is also combining this effort with a food drive for the Ouray County Food Pantry (discounted admission with a can or package of food). Please see the list of most desired food items in the October newsletter.

2015/2016 Elks Bowling season


The Ouray Elks Lodge is forming bowling teams for this coming season. The 2015 season will start on or about October 12th. The season will run until mid-December. We will start our second season in January 2016. You don’t have to bowl in both, but the second season is Nine-Pin -- a whole new way to look at your bowling skills.


All bowling skill levels are welcome. We use a bowling handicap system that lets novices and pros bowl against each other. We hope to be bowling four nights a week, with each team bowling one night a week (we can work around scheduling issues). If we have an odd number of teams, each team will get a bye week (so let us know if there are any bad weeks during the upcoming season).


If you wish to bowl, contact Steve Scheu at srscheu@gmail.com or call him in the evenings at  970-318-0285. Let him know if you have a team formed, or if you are a smaller group or individual bowler.
