Reminder about ID Cards
Members, if you have not requested and received an Elks ID Card for your spouse, please do so.
The New Mexico Alcohol Beverage Control is making a “stink” about spouses being in the lodge without an ID Card, even if in the accompaniment of a spouse.
Get that done now. Next spring when membership cards are printed, it will already be in the system and it makes it a lot easier.
 
Carlsbad Lodge Gains 24th Ritual “All-American”
Performer Robert Pendrak became Carlsbad’s 24th “All-American” Ritual performer joining a select group of officers who have competed at the National Ritual Contest representing our Lodge in 32 contests since 1955.

And though the team did not make the “Finals” as hoped for, Robert’s performance in the preliminary round was top among the 13 Esquires in the Western Division competition.
That being said, any “All-American” Ritual Officer must have a strong team showing along with his performance. Two other members of the team, James Mason as Inner Guard and Russell Elyasevich as Loyal Knight finished 2nd in their respective positions. As a team, Carlsbad finished 5th in the Western Division, with a score of 95.9450.

 

LODGE ATTENDANCE EXTREMELY POOR
We noticed lately that the attendance at the lodge meetings is really poor. Even if only 3% of our members showed up, that would be 69 members. Attendance is around 1%...and many times less.
The lodge is where the money is spent. We approved a lodge budget recently in excess of $773,000. It was approved by exactly 1% of the membership.
So, we have a request of all members: “Try to come to at least 1-meeting each year.”
With over 2,000 members living right here in Carlsbad and with 20 lodge meetings per year…that would be over 100 of you are showing up for a meeting.
