As the world readied to watch the Summer Olympics in China, children learned running fundamentals on the Holmes Beach City Hall field. From Aug. 4-14, Manatee High School senior Jessica Pate led a free running program for Island youth. Jessica is a member of the school varsity track and cross country teams.

The men of the Key Royale Club played an 18-hole, better-ball-of-partners game on Aug. 13. The team of Bob Kral and Vince Mercadante combined to card an impressive 9-under-par 55 to claim first place in front of a trio of teams. One shot back in a tie for second place was Bob Kelly and Chris Collins, Bob Jorgensen and Don Ledford and the team of Al Morgan and Earl Huntzinger.

The women of the Key Royale Club played a low-net game and the best four holes in a row on Aug. 12. Low net winner in flight one was Tootie Wagner with an impressive 7-under 25. Terry Westby finished in second place with a 4-under 28. Second-flight winner was Ruth Williamson with a 5-under-par 27, while Markie Ksaizk finished in second with a 30. Wagner captured the best-four-consecutive-holes game with a 13.

The men played a nine-hole, two-best-balls-of-foursome game on Aug. 11. First place went to the team of Al Morgan, Bob Kral, Vince Mercadante and Earl Huntzinger with a score of 53.

 

Horseshoe news

Horseshoe action at the Anna Maria City Hall pits on Aug. 13 turned into family feud as Tom Rhodes and Jerry Disbrow squared off against Jay Disbrow and Debbie Rhodes. Tom and Jerry won in easy fashion, taking a 21-3 victory sparked by back-to-back six-pack throws from Jerry Disbrow.

The Aug. 9 games were halted due to inclement weather.

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.
