Bowl, golf tourneys, soccer coming up in sports
Jay Disbrow of Bradenton and Eric Fries of Jacksonville defeated the team of Ron Pepka and Steve Doyle, both from Anna Maria, to win the horseshoe competition on Saturday, Aug. 6, at the Anna Maria City Hall park.
The winners of the Wednesday, Aug. 3, games were Bill Bartlett of Holmes Beach and Pepka.
Play gets under way every Wednesday and Saturday at 9 a.m. behind the Anna Maria City Hall at the corner of Gulf Drive and Pine Avenue. Warmups begin at 8:45 a.m. followed by random team selection just prior to play. There is no charge to play and everyone is welcome, regardless of skill level.
Last chance to join Her-icane golf challenge
The Manatee High School Her-icanes girls' soccer team has just a few spots left open for its Aug. 27 fundraising golf tournament at the Bradenton Country Club. The tournament registration deadline has been extended to Aug. 15. For only $100 per golfer, you can test your golf skills at Bradenton's most challenging layout in a four-person scramble.
The Her-icanes are still looking for sponsors for the tournament. For $800, your business can purchase the Hat Trick package, which consists of a foursome including the banquet, a tee or green sign on the course and a banner which will be displayed at all Manatee Her-icane home soccer games. A golden goal sponsorship package includes a foursome and a tee or green sign on the course for $500, or you can simply purchase a tee or green sign for the tournament for $125.
To sign up call me, Her-icane Coach Cassidy, at 807-1105.
