Date of Issue: December 26, 2007

Youth basketball season to start post-holidays

The 2008 Anna Maria Island Community Center youth basketball season gets started shortly after the winter holiday season and school break comes to an end. The annual banquet to kick-start the league will be held at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 10 with the dinner again donated by the Beach Bistro. Individual and team photos will be taken Jan. 12 with the regular season starting on Jan. 14.

Once again there will be four age divisions for competition, including the non-competitive instructional division for players in the 5-7 year old group. Division III is for players in the 8-9 age group and Division II for players in the 10-11 year old group. Last, but not least, is the Premier Division for players 14-17 years old.

 

Horseshoe news

Three teams emerged from pool play with undefeated records to duel it out for bragging rights during the Dec. 8 horseshoe proceedings. John Johnson teamed up with Ron Slagh to defeat the team of Ron Pepka and Tom Rhodes 22-18 to advance to the finals, where they defeated Jay Disbrow and Sam Samuels by a 22-12 score.

The Dec. 12 games saw R.B. Munro and Gene Bobledyk roll past David Lansaw and Art Kingstad 22-10 to win the day’s bragging rights.

Play gets under way at 9 a.m. every Wednesday and Saturday at the Anna Maria City Hall pits. Warmups begin at 8:45 a.m. followed by random team selection. There is no charge to play and everyone is welcome.

 

Key Royale golf news

The men of the Key Royale Club played an 18-hole, better-ball-of-partners tournament on Dec. 12. Day Hayes and Bob Dickinson teamed up to match the 10-under-par 54 that Gerry Taylor and Joe Dickinson carded to finish in a tie for first place. Second place went to the team of Earl Ritchie and John Heiselman with a 9-under 55. Third place went to Bob Kral and Dale Hudson, who matched the 7-under-par 57 that Pete Weir and Gary Harris carded. Greg Shorten and Jim Mixon finished in fourth place with a 6-under 58.

The men played a nine-hole, two-best balls-of-foursome game on Dec. 10 with the team of Omar Tolard, Bob Dickinson, Chuck Reed and Jim Dunne taking first place with a 9-under-par 55. Second place went to the team of Russ Olson, Charlie Knopp, Matt Behan and Peter Proxy with a score of 57 that was matched by the team of Joe Dickinsin, Charlie Krauss, Al Kaiser and Paul Proxy.

The ladies allowed the men to play along on Dec. 7 with a “throw-out-the-worst-hole” game. First place went to the team of Joy Nellis, Dorothy McKinna, Jim Finn and Marion Mulroy, who combined to fire a 10-under-par 118 and win by four strokes. Second place went to the team of Eunice Warda, Joyce Brown, Jerry Brown and Dale Hudson.
