Recent and upcoming events
We have scheduled a social event for Saturday, October 2, 2021 from 3 PM to 7 PM to be held at the Ramada next to the Pickleball Courts. The event will be free for members and their spouse and potential club members and their spouses. This will be a casual, fun event and a chance to expand our membership. Format is a simple bar-b-que with hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad and baked beans. BYO beer and wine permitted. Members received an invitation via Golf Genius and non members were invited on What’s Happening, the Quail Creek daily on-line newsletter
We are also looking for volunteers to help us return to a full Board. Our long time member, Tom Haberer, had to step down from his current position as Membership/Social Director. We thank Tom for his years of service to QCVGA! We also need someone to serve as liaison to the Men’s Club. Norm Waters has accepted more responsibility with them and can no longer serve in that role with us. We always need volunteers to help with social events and tournaments. If you have the time, we would love to have you! The club can not exist without dedicated volunteers to keep it moving forward. Continuing our mission of supporting local veteran assistance groups depends on you.

Our President, Rene Gill, arranged another successful, off-site event at the Sewailo Golf Course. 23 participated and all appeared to enjoy the day. Thanks Rene!
Veteran’s Day Charity Tournament
Planning is ongoing for our annual Charity Tournament on November 8. It will be an 18 hole, scramble event with many chances to win additional prizes. Our new Tournament Director, Dan Salazar, is hard at work beating the bushes to drum up sponsors and prizes. Stay tuned for details on the event and how to register your foursome.
Also a tribute concert is being offered by the Quail Creek Performing Arts group two days after the tournament. Details below:

Battle of the Branches
Sadly, because the restrictions due to COVID were still in place, we were unable to hold the Battle of the Branches in March as we normally would. With the increased costs of catering and the Veteran’s Day Tournament on Monday, November 8 we were unable to make this work in December. Look for a return in March, 2022.
Honor Flight to resume
We are awaiting confirmation that Honor Flight will be resuming soon. We are pledged to sponsor one participant once the logistics are worked out. The program started with WW II vets but has been expanded to include Korean War and Vietnam Vets as well.
We hope to get back to hosting more events in 2022 so that we can continue our mission of assisting these support groups to the degree that we have always done in the past. Almost $30,000.00 donated since 2013 to a variety of support groups for our local veterans.
