The 2015 Omaha Scottish Rite Spring Outing at the Papillion Gun Club was a bit on the chilly side this year, but all in attendance were having a great time.  The food was excellent and the service was even better.  the winning washer toss team

There was a heated competition on the washer toss platforms.  After many hard fought rounds the North Bend team earned their trophies.

There were many guys there to check out a little of what we Masons do.  They were welcomed in and enjoyed good company, a little adult beverage, and the customary cigars.  All in all a great night!
