The 3rd Annual Orange Coast District Olympics were off and running at the Garden Grove Elks lodge on Sunday September 21. All 9 District Lodges were represented with competitors and cheerleaders pushing towards the gold in Shuffleboard, Billiards, Darts, Horseshoes, Corn Hole, Tray Race, Hoop Shoot, Bowling, Golf and Ping Pong (Golf tournament is Sept 27 at Meadowlark Gold course, Huntington Beach and Bowling is October 5 at Tustin Lanes). Many lodges had booths set-up selling food, drinks and commemorative event tee-shirts. District Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler, Rick Blake, opened the Olympics at noon followed by a brief eat-drink-mingle period and then “let the games begin”. It was a fun day for all that participated and for a good charitable cause.
