It’s hard to believe almost a year has passed since the 2019 Alumni Weekend/Golf Tournament. The golf outing was one of the best I can remember, with over 80 alumni gathered to play golf, share stories and enjoy the fellowship of brotherhood spanning six decades of EI Pikes. I look forward to this year’s event, and want to share with you some information regarding it.
Although many alumni come down the Friday before the golf tournament, this year’s Alumni Weekend will officially begin on Saturday, April 25 with our golf tournament. Once again, the tournament will be held at Dalhousie Golf Club, located at 4700 Cord’s Way, Cape Girardeau, MO 63701. For more information about the golf course, please visit Dalhousie’s website at http://www.dalhousiegolfclub.com/.
The format for the tournament is 4-man scramble, with a shotgun start at 12:30. Lunch will be provided at the pavilion at 11:30. A variety of beverages will be provided as well – thank you to Brother Mike Kohlfeld and the Brothers Patterson! The tournament field is limited to 80 golfers (20 teams), so please don’t delay in signing up.
You may register yourself or your team for the tournament by visiting event caddy at https://app.eventcaddy.com/even…/2020-pike-alumni-tournament. Once in the site, payment instructions are provided. Or, if you prefer you may send your payment to Mark Zieres, at 1719 Potomac Pl, Cape Girardeau, MO 63701. Mark and Robbie Guard are chairing the golf tournament again this year. Feel free to reach out to either of them or me via email with any questions you may have. Robbie Guard RGuard@mrvbanks.com; Mark Zieres firstname.lastname@example.org; David Jones email@example.com.
If golf is not your thing, please join us at Dogwood Social House following the golf tournament around 6:30. If you have never been there, you will be amazed. Dogwood is located at 80 South Plaza Way, Cape Girardeau, MO 63703.
I look forward to seeing you on April 24 and 25.

As we now understand the quarry next door finally purchased the rest of the ground in the area to expand operations. This included our abandoned pike lodge. Lots of good memories but the time had come to move on.
Goodbye old friend.

Alumni Weekend 2019 Golf Winners
We are excited to announce a couple of changes to the Alumni Weekend format. First, we are proud to announce that we will have the tournament at Dalhousie Golf Club the afternoon of April 27th. There has been a lot of interest in Dalhousie through the years and even this early in the year, that course will be in great shape. You may not know that the Golf Pro, Course Superintendent and the Pro Shop Manager are all Pikes! We chose the afternoon, to allow our brothers from St. Louis time to get down to Cape and only have to commit one ‘over’ night to the event.
We are also doing the Alumni Happy Hour after golf, this year. Friday night attendance has been low, and we understand how difficult it is for out of towners to make it to Cape for Happy Hour. Therefore, we are doing Saturday night at a new venue in Cape called the Dogwood Social House. We think have a scheduled event Saturday night will also allow brothers from all eras to socialize and enjoy the evening all together at one venue.
Please make sure to forward to all of our brothers!

We decided to move the Annual Business Meeting from Feb 2nd to Alumni Weekend in Cape. We have always historically had this meeting in St. Louis and it limited the attendees to those in St. Louis.
This year we’ll move it to Cape and probably rotate between Cape and St. Louis going forward.
Hope to see everyone at Alumni Weekend in April. More details coming soon.
