Many lodges in the state of Virginia play the Queen of Hearts. The Queen of Hearts was approved the by the state of Virginia for play in our lodges. It is a fun game with sometimes huge pay offs. It is easy to play; you purchase a ticket and pick the number where you think the Queen of Hearts is hiding. If your ticket is drawn to pick, the number you wrote on the back of the ticket is pulled from the board. If we flip the card and it is the Queen of Hearts, you win! If not, it is progressive. The money rolls over into the next drawing.

Note: We try to keep up with all the drawings across the state. Is your lodge not getting updated? Please let us know what is happening in your lodge. You can send us updates directly to Jim Puckett at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or via our Contact Us page under About.

As we get updates during the week, this page will be updated. The most recent reporting lodges will be at the top of the report.

For our 35 years of playing, this tournament was great! We had a great turnout for the 35th Annual Virginia Moose Association’s Horseshoe Tournament On June 9th through 11th, 2017. We had members from around the state descend on the Strasburg Lodge for a fun weekend of horseshoes! Congratulations to everyone that came, entered, and played. You make this a fun event to participate in! For the results from the tournament please click on the link below…

On Monday, November 6, 2017, the Hampton Lodge hosted it's Fall Valued Veteran dinner.  The Lodge kicked off Membership Retention Week by honoring their Valued Veterans with a FREE spaghetti dinner. The highlight of the evening was an inspirational speech from the lodge Treasurer, Senior Chief Petty Officer Dave Mortensen.  Senior Chief Petty Officer Mortensen closed out the evening by presenting the Moose Valued Veteran certificates and pins.  A fun time was had by all.  A warm thanks to everyone that participated and helped in this event.  A special thanks to all of our Valued Veterans in and out of our Moose fraternity.  We will always be in your debit!

With the Virginia Moose Association’s Karaoke competition, just around the corner in January 2018, we want to get out the word about the different District feeder competitions. For some of you, this will be short notice. If your district is not on this list is could be because they are not hosting a competition or they have not organized one yet. We wish all the contestants the best of luck and look forward to seeing the winners at the district level at this year’s mid-year conference competition!

When information becomes available, we will update this article!
