NFL flag football season on summer horizon

The Anna Maria Island Community Center’s 2007 summer flag football season gets under way Friday, June 8, at the Holmes Beach athletic fields. The Center experimented with flag football earlier this year with great results — and now they’ve stepped it up by joining NFL Flag Football. The league will sport eight teams in three age divisions.

Pee Wee Division for players ages 5-7 will have two teams, the Eagles and the Colts. The Junior Division for players ages 8-11 has the Titans, Chiefs and Texans. Last, but not least, is the Youth Division for players ages 12-15, which has the Buccaneers, Panthers and Raiders as its three teams.

As part of the NFL Flag Football program, the Center will host an NFL Punt, Pass & Kick competition on Saturday, July 14, at its home field, the Holmes Beach field adjacent to city hall and the skate park.

 

Key Royale golf news

The Key Royale Club men teed it up for an 18-hole, partners-low-net tournament on May 30. Jim Mixon and Bob Kral combined to shoot a 12-under-par 52 to claim clubhouse bragging rights for the day. Two shots back in second place were two teams, Lew Winegarden and Bob Elliott, and the team of Pieter Thomassen and Jim MacVicar. Third place went to the team of Fred Meyer and Dan Hayes with a 61.

May 28 saw the men play a nine-hole, individual-low-net tournament which was won by Bob Kral with a 4-under-par 28. Second place went to Don Ledford with a 1-under-par 31, while Bob Kelly and Dick Grimme tied for third place with 33.

The ladies and men of Key Royale Club teamed up on May 25 for the weekly coed tournament. The team of Jane Winegarden, Terry Westby, Larry Fowler and Tom Proxy fired a 101 to win the low-team-net-score tournament. Second place went to the team of Jeanette Cashman, Frankie Smith-Williams, Fred Meyer and Bob Proxy with a score of 105.

 

Horseshoe news

Three out of five teams advanced from pool play with 3-0 records during May 23 horseshoe action at Anna Maria City Hall. Debbie Rhodes and Ron Slagh cruised past the team of Bill Starrett and Hank Huyghe by a 22-11 score to earn a shot in the finals at the waiting team of Tom Rhodes and Peter Dickson. Dickson, a pit rookie visiting from Gainesville, won the match with a walk-off ringer and a 23-18 score.

Only one team managed to emerge from pool play during May 30 horseshoe action. Debbie Rhodes and Dean Rowe were the undisputed champs for the day. Ron Slagh and Sam Samuels took second place with a 23-8 victory over the team of Jimmy Spencer and John Johnson.

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.

 

Join Her-icane golf challenge

The Manatee High School Her-icanes girls soccer team is hosting a fundraising golf tournament at the Bradenton Country Club at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8. The team uses the money for uniforms, warm-up suits and tournament travel.

For a $100 donation, players can test their golf skills at Bradenton's most exclusive and challenging layout in a four-person scramble.

All players registered before the Aug. 1 deadline will receive a goody bag, cart and greens fees, a post-tourney banquet and guaranteed fun throughout the day. Also on tap are a straightest-drive contest, two closest-to-the-pin contests, a putting contest and raffles for tons of prizes. The field is limited to the first 100 golfers, so don't delay.

The Her-icanes are also looking for tournament sponsors to help their cause. For $800, a business can purchase the Hat Trick package, consisting of a foursome, banquet, tee or green sign on the course and a banner that 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 a tee or green sign for the tournament for $125.

To sign up a foursome, list the four players and each players phone number and send the list with a check payable to Manatee Girls Soccer Booster. Mail it to me, Her-icane Coach Kevin Cassidy at 2011 79th St. N.W., Bradenton FL 34209. For more information, call me 807-1105.
