QMGA News – May 2010

By Gerry Wigginton

The QMGA Opening Day tournament on April 10 was free of rain, snow, tornadoes, and full of fun and gloriously nice spring sunshine.

A BBQ dinner was held the Friday night beforehand for the players and their spouses, in which teams were established. QMGA President Dave Jones made several announcements, including the QMGA and QWGA cooperative gift of a new microphone and speaker system for our pros to use outside the pro shop.

Opening day morning began with breakfast, followed by a 9 am shotgun. Play finished shortly after 2 pm, which may have set a new Quivira record for speed of completion for this event. The results of the competition are as follows:

1st (65), $60 per player: Thad Millard, Brian Bailey, Sean

2nd (66), $55 per player: Jim Bramlett, Tim Congrove, Jerry Neill, Scott Hastings.

3rd (67), $50 per player: Jim Wise, Steve White, Wayne Hidalgo, Jae Lee.

Plans for the Lake Classic are proceeding, with sponsor gifts distribution set for this month, followed by a Sponsor Appreciation Day, where we celebrate the 2009 sponsors with a day of golf, lunch, and dinner. This year’s sponsor day is on May 27. Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor for 2010 should contact Bill Eckinger. You make the Classic such a successful event, and are deeply appreciated.

Bill Eckinger is the tournament chairman for the Classic this year, and he needs your support by volunteering for the many jobs entailed, for which you receive points to make you eligible for play in the coming Classics. Should you already have enough points and only want to be a good guy or girl, please sign up. Bill Eckinger’s cell phone is 302-5740.

May 1st features a 2+2 event, so plan to attend that day. The signup sheet is already available for participants.

Tennis season at Lake Quivira is about to be in full swing! Starting May 17, the LQ Tennis Club summer calendar offers fun activities for players of all skill levels.

Our new tennis pro, Chris Claypool, will be organizing and gathering his staff to run our tennis programs and assist with our clinics, mixers and tournaments.

For the ladies, we will be having clinics every Monday evening at 7pm, beginning May 17. You simply show up and play. KCRC Pro Terry Miller will be back to teach these drill & play sessions, and there will be additional staff on hand if we need two courts. No matter what level of tennis you play–even if you are a beginner–you will enjoy and benefit from these Monday night clinics.

Men’s Drill & Play clinics will be every Tuesday evening at 7 pm, beginning May 18. LQ Pro Chris Claypool will put you through your paces. And like all the other LQ Tennis club activities, these clinics are free with your Tennis Club membership.

Want to play doubles on Saturday morning? As in the past, we have open play for ladies’, men’s and mixed doubles. Check the schedule for the starting time, and just show up and play. Chris will be there to help organize and get games started.

And finally, don’t forget to mark you calendars for our tournaments and mixers. Be sure to save the date of Sat., June 5, for our ever-popular Margarita Mixer.
