Recent and upcoming events
With all the cancellations and facility restrictions enacted to protect against the spread of the Corona Virus, the VGA calendar is in a state of flux. We have cancelled our Hot Dog Social originally set for March 31 with hopes to reschedule at a later date. Stay tuned for further updates.
Battle of the Branches
Our annual Tournament to determine our club champions and award bragging rights to the members of the Branch of Service who log the lowest average net score was held this past Saturday. We just got in under the wire and were able to put out 70 golfers and serve 82 lunches. Thanks to both the catering staff and the golf staff for accommodating us as meetings were in progress to determine Quail Creek’s response to the Corona Virus Crisis going forward. The representatives of the Navy won a very close race for bragging rights with an average net score of 76, besting the Army, Air Force and Marines with narrow stroke difference of less than 5 between first and last. Congratulations to the Navy!
Our club champion for the low gross score is Tom Fischer who ended up in a three way tie with Al Olbeter and Bob Morgan but won in a “card off” with the best score for the last three holes on the Quail Course. The low net club champion is a repeat winner, Kathy Olbeter who carded a net 65.
16 prizes were awarded for the flighted low net competition, sending a few more golfers home happy.
Thanks also to our president and tournament chair, Rene Gill and his team of volunteers for getting everyone checked in and handling the 50/50 drawing.
Pictures will be posted on the photo page shortly.
QCVGA makes a donation to The Women of Quail Creek in support of their annual Military Baby Shower
On Thursday, March 12, 2020 Rene Gill, President, and Al & Kathy Olbeter, Co-Chairs of the Charity Committee of the Quail Creek Veterans Golf Association presented a donation in the amount of $500 to Karen Baker, Chairwoman of the Military Baby Shower committee of The Women of Quail Creek. One of the goals of the Quail Creek veterans is to provide financial support for local active-duty military families, veterans and veteran support groups. The Military Baby Shower does just that!
This baby was born in 2011 when TWOQC supported a shower sponsored by the Auxiliary of the Green Valley Chapter, Military Officers Association. TWOQC has actively supported young families of the 162nd Air National Guard since then.
- It has grown in size from twelve moms to thirty last year and has moved homes several times. The first shower was held in a classroom at the 162nd.
- One year a hanger was decked out within a circus theme for the event.
- The project was so well received by TWOQC that a charitable committee was formed in 2012. They coordinate the effort to raise cash, clothing, diaper donations, and handmade items.
- Last year they produced an astonishing 1,400 handmade items (diaper bags, burp cloths, bibs, neck pillows, blankets, and more) for new moms.
