Club Rush, sponsored by the Family Matters Club, was held on Sunday at Holiday Harbor Park. The premise of the event is for Canyon Lake clubs to get their names out to the community and for the community to see what the clubs have to offer all in one convenient place. Nineteen clubs, two businesses and two vendors participated.
Attendees were given a Club Rush passport. Those who had their passport stamped at every booth were entered into a drawing for a chance to win a basket filled with items valued at more than $800. Kathy Haas was the lucky winner.
Most of the booths had something to engage visitors. The Fine Arts Guild played a video of its previous concerts, gave away goodies and had a drawing for two tickets to its next concert. Dick Gast was the lucky winner of the concert tickets.
The Tennis Club offered a tennis ball guessing game with a prize and gave away tennis lessons. Linda Hudson won the guessing game. The Family Matters Club offered free face painting, Cub Scout Pack 346 demonstrated pinewood derby, the Car Club offered a guessing game with a prize and gave away magnets and visitors at the 9ers Golf Club booth could try their luck at a hole-in-one.
Family Golf offered a golf ball guessing game with a prize of a free membership for a year. At the Triathlon and Fitness Club booth, visitors could spin a wheel to win a prize and at the Emergency Preparedness booth visitors could learn about CPR.
“We heard several clubs got lots of new members and sign ups and lots of people were excited to find out about clubs they had not know about,” said Shawna Bowen of the Family Matters Club.
The Family Matters Club organized a friendly competition between clubs using the inflatable sports complex. The winners were members of the Ski Club, Women’s Golf Club, Choraleers and Cub Scout Pack 346. The “Best Booth Decorations” award went to the Yacht Club.
The Family Matters Club thanks the clubs and community for helping to make its first Club Rush event a success.
