A Woodward Elks member had hired a stripper from OKC who cancelled out at the last minute. He went searching for a replacement, and this girl accepted. If an Elks member hired her, doesn't that make the comments by Mr. Day seem like a lie? They need to feel the heat on this one. No rodeo for 2 years and no golf tourney forever seems like a good start. Dodge and another major sponsor are getting ready to jump ship, and the National Elks Group has been contacted.

I just looked on the website, and the man who hired the young lady from Mooreland at this golf tourney is the last guy listed on the committee membership. He is a member of your committee. Each member has a specific task to do during the rodeo, and his was to sell tickets at the golf tourney. Any way he could sell tickets was OK with the committee. The young lady's boss at the time she was hired is the second name above Mr. Owens. Mr. Miller, as you can see, is also a member of the Elks Committee. I kinda think they did know what was going on. They have sworn to Mr. Riffel and all of their major sponsors that they knew nothing.
Elks members, your organization did know what was going on. Care to comment on the $4,000+ in tips she walked away from the golf outing with? This shoots your alibi all to heck.

Jill, what proof do you have that she walked away with that kind of money? If it was tips, how is it the Elks fault that so many people gave her tips? What proof (other than rumors and hear say) do you have that she was asked to perform the way she did?

They (Elks members) originally hired a stripper from OKC to sell the tickets. Strippers usually don't wear any clothes. At least 2 elks members were on the green when she took her clothes off, and they did not try to stop her...all the time she was there.
Tips are not the issue here. The fact of the matter is the organization knew what was going on, yet they deny knowing anything about it.

Weren't there kids at the event? Why would you invite a stripper to a public event when you know kids will be present?

We are praying for all involved. What matters here is accoutability. The Elks knew they hired a stripper that backed out, and they had to have known what they wanted the person on this green to do when they hired this young lady. They may not have forced her to take her clothes off, but she did, and Elks members were there. I was out of the country when this happened, but I have talked to some that work for the City that are in the know. Doesn't look good for the Elks. Just sayin'.

To answer your question, the AP picked up the story this morning so they are interested. It appeared in the NY Post on Tuesday so they are interested. The PRCA is very interested. The National BPOE is interested. The Ladies Golf Association REALLY cares about what went on. You just think that all of the "Good" you do during the year will wash away your smut. No chance. What about riding wild mules at the fairgrounds after the rodeo was over for the last few years? Wanna talk about that one? Sponsors are dropping like flies. I would say this is far from over. BTW, they make newspaper ink by the barrel.

Perhaps Woodward can capitalize on the widespread publicity the stunt has generated. Make a positive out of a perceived (by some) negative.

Surely there are some thinkers in Woodward who can take this bull by the horns (cow by the teats) and run with it!

Fact Witch Hazel, Woodward Elks got $7500.00 from Tourism to help put on their famous golf tournament. They seem to get a lot of money from tourism. Our tourism so call board and city commissioner Gary Goetzinger seem to think the ONLY think that ever happens in Woodward is Rodeos. Well they should be proud of the Elks now…….You can't tell me that a single mother of two took off work to volunteer to help with a golf tournament, and then volunteered to take her clothes off all by herself. No one egged her on, not one man paid her, she did this all by herself. You're Kidding ME!! Yes there is blame but she isn't the only one. There are plenty who thru her under the bus. I don't see pictures of the men that gave her money around town, or THEIR names being said, but everyone seems to have photos of her and know her name. We as people make mistakes, but being a coward like those men are I side with the young woman. First it was a State Park, public place, a fund raiser, tourism money used, day time and not to mention we had a problem with boiling spring several years ago with a young girl driving home and drinking. That is why the city leased it to Jon Hart and his company. Now if that young woman was drinking who drove her home? Same thing could have happened again to her. Yes Witch Hazel a lot of us are upset about this on many levels. Was there not one decent man there, who was married or had a daughter that could say "stop"put your clothes on? Then say, "put those phones down, You men stop taking pictures this is NOT right." Where was Jon Hart in all of this? I heard he wasn't bothered by it all. Yes, you can laugh you can make all the jokes you want but this is as close to a gang rape as I have ever heard, and any of the men that knew or saw or played a part in it…shame on you. If I was an Elk I would turn in my membership.

Well said. The Woodward community needs to bond together and make certain that the rodeo and everything associated with it is non existant after this little stunt. The Elks are trying to cover everything up, but the fact of the matter is they have always been a hard drinking, womanizing club that throws a little charity in for good cheer. What happened this year is just the harvest of the wild oats they have planted over the years. Convention and Tourism is ran by a guy that lives in Alva? Yes, that is right. The $7,500 needs to be paid back regardless of who was at fault. Keep up the publicity on the Elks and we cant let them escape this one. Go to their website to see who their members are and don't do business with the Elk members who have businesses. Write Dodge and other major sponsors and tell them what is on your mind.

That's a little harsh, don't you think? You are asking people NOT to do business with Elks members who have businesses in your community.....that is the stupidest thing I have ever heard of. Big flippin deal....some random skank got naked at a gold tournament.....it is NOT the first and I'm sure it will not be the last. Is your husband one of the guys who gave her money?? Is that why you are so mad??? If people don't do business locally, then NW Oklahoma would suck even more than it already does. Local businesses (even those owned by the Elks members)keep Woodward going strong. Pull the stick out of your @$$ Jill and calm the eff down!

I fail to see the problem. If it wasn't for this stripper getting butt ass naked, then I would have never heard of your gay golf tournament.

I love that everyone is talking about the elks. what about all the other men out there playing and looking? Noone has anything to say about them. As for them hiring a stripped...really? I'm guessing u were there and know all this for fact? U have proof to back ur accusations? There were wives of committee members on holes out there,don't u think if they hired a stripper they would have their wives out there also? I think maybe u need a life Jill. Hope u don't have kids as u r spending a lot of time worring about this. Is this the first time anything scandalous has happened in this town? It won't b the last. If one mistake is made people jump on it and make it a big deal. I've heard a million different versions but people don't want the truth cause that isn't as much fun. I know it was inappropriate but mistakes happen. Noone held a gun to her head and made her do it. If she was egged on shame on her for being so weak and thinking so little of herself to actually do it. A few of them are single and do pick up women and drink(why not? They're single!) but u can't label them all under one category as most of them are happily married,faithful and bring their wives with them. This is the 1st time I've head of an incident like this from the Elks so why drag it out. They r embarrassed and ashamed of the situation and paying the price and taking a lot of crappy from it. I'm sure it will b corrected. As far as the tourism paying them... Don't think the tourism doesn't make a profit as well as all the businesses in WW do from the rodeo. People just need to move on and worry about themselves unless they r perfect and have never made a mistake.....and let's face it we all have. That's what God gave his son for.

Well. Everyone knows th Elks throw th best parties dances, etc. Best Rodeo around for sure! And now best entertainment at a golf tournament! My friend said this made news in Japan!! Im waiting for Howard Stern to call. Lol Oh! but lets not forget... The Elks are also known for all th good they do right here in lil ole woodward ok. Lots of families have been helped. Medical bills paid. So a girl got naked! Those guys never saw a naked chick!? Seems to me, maybe next year there should be a no cell phone rule :) id place my bet that everyone there had a good time. Money was raised. If anyones making woodward elks golf tournament tshirts i want an autographed one! Team Alicia
