What’s New

Kurt Wirth Grattan Irish Pub Dinner Event

Once again, it’s time to drive your beater for beans and wieners. Actually the food at the Grattan Bar is wonderful and it is now NO smoking! Wednesday night is fish night and then there is always the legendary Grattan Burger. As many of you know, we lost our dear friend Kurt Wirth in November 2018. This was Kurt’s event every year and he loved the hamburger, burnt, no bun! As a tribute to our dear friend, we are naming the Grattan Irish Pub Dinner Event in his honor to celebrate his life.

WHERE: Grattan Irish Pub, 11817 Old Belding Road NE Belding, MI 48809
WHEN: Wednesday, March 27 6:00 PM cocktails; 7:00 PM dinner
RSVP: Rick Riley; rick.riley01@gmail.com by Monday, March 25

Cook Off

Owning a Porsche brings the unfettered joy of childhood into the adult world. Why not have a cook-off that does the same thing? This year, we challenge the members of the club to take a childhood staple, Mac and Cheese, and turn it into a grownup culinary delight! The rules are simple, the main ingredients must be tubular pasta and cheese. Other than that, go wild! A chef who brings a dish with at least two quarts of Mac and Cheese enters at no charge and will vie for Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice prizes. If you do not cook, please plan on a $10 cover fee (collected at the event) to contribute to the feast. BYOB!

WHERE: The home of Frank & Raeni Connor (address provided on request)
WHEN: Saturday, April 13 beginning at 6:30 pm
RSVP: Frank Conner via e-mail by Wednesday, April 10.

Sporting Clays

It’s been called “golf with a gun.” My way of expressing it is “shooting traditional clay pigeons thrown in unconventional ways.” Whatever term you wish to use, it is a tremendous amount of fun. Please come out an join us on Saturday, May 19 at 10:00 am for a 10:30 am (dare I say it?) shotgun start. For more information on the event, which we run rain or shine, please click here. Once we are done there we’ll head off to enjoy lunch and regale each other with tales of how well we performed.

WHERE: Blendon Pines Gun Club, 8544 88th Ave., Zeeland, MI 49464
WHEN: 10:00 am gathering, 10:30 am start on Saturday, May 19
RSVP: Jerry Arens or Amber Door by Thursday, May 16
