GHS Lady Eagles Basketball Team

Travel History

Boo Williams Holiday Classic

Christmas in 2009 was spent in Phoenix, Arizona, at the Nike Tournament of Champs, where Georgetown defeated Chandler, Arizona, on the buzzer. The team traveled the Apache Trail, experiencing Camelback Mountain and an old ghost town in addition to attending an Arizona State women’s basketball game.

Georgetown flew to Oakland, California, after Christmas in 2010, where the team placed fourth out of 96 teams in the West Coast Jamboree, losing to nationally ranked Berkeley and Long Beach Poly. While in San Francisco, the team visited Muir Woods, Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, and Fisherman’s Wharf.

Georgetown headed east to Virginia Beach, Virginia, and the Boo Williams Holiday Classic in December 2011, where the team went 2-1, snapping a 17-game winning streak. The team explored a lighthouse, rode the oldest wooden carousel in the country, visited Jamestown, ate rare prime rib at Colonial Williamsburg, toured ChristmasTown at Busch Gardens, and experienced GeoCashing, where they found the oldest church in America as well as other historic treasures.

Contact: Marilyn Hooks, 868-2537 or marilynhooks@yahoo.com Our monthly business meetings and workshops are open to all Sun City residents. Please feel free to attend any of our meetings. We would enjoy meeting you and giving you information about our entertaining group! Night of January 16th, written by Ayn Rand and directed by Frank Benko, will be presented in the Activities Center Atrium at 7 p.m. August 15-18 and 22-25. This gripping courtroom drama about the rise and destruction of a brilliant and ruthless man features a jury selected from the audience. Was his death an accident, suicide, or murder? Will the prosecutor or the defense attorney win the murder case brought against his devoted secretary and mistress? Which of the witnesses can you believe? The verdict (and the ending of the play) lies in the hands of the jury seated at each performance. Since its original Broadway success, Ayn Rand’s vision of human strength and weakness has achieved vast worldwide popularity and acclaim. Tickets are $10, and can be purchased at Member Services, online, or at the door. Complimentary wine is served at intermission. Auditions for Roses in December will be held September 5-6 from 10 a.m. to noon in the Jarrell Room. The play has one male and one female and will be done in a reader’s format, and presented the week of November 12. For information or a script, call Dave Lovelace at 864-2131.

Aviation Club

www.sctxca.org > Clubs > Aviation Saturday, August 11, 8:30 a.m., ACA Contact: President Bud Farrell, 591-7731 A couple of centuries have passed since the dreamers, experimenters and inventors considered flying an achievable objective. Yet some still dream about having a little more time, more money and just the right amount of talent and encouragement to achieve goals of soaring in that vast blue sky. For the most part, we’ve turned our inventive and mechanical genius over to aircraft manufacturers to figure out. (We’re retired, remember! Some among us here in Sun City have been there and done that!) These ambitious, successful and often notable people gather regularly to discuss aviation’s past and present glory. We are the Sun City Aviation Club, which meets every second Saturday of the month at 8:30 a.m. for coffee and donut holes, in the Atrium of the Activities Center. There is some hangar flying and there are stories about general aviation, commercial and military. If you have ever attempted to build or helped build a flyable aircraft; or have dreamed of hopping a 737 at Bergstrom, flew into Dallas or Houston, then transferred to a 787 Dreamliner (destination: Moscow!); or maybe just fly the family flivver over to Marble Falls for breakfast, then you are a candidate for membership in the Sun City Aviation Club. Join us for lots of fun; we tell a few stories, we brag a little and we may even try to predict the future of the aviation industry. You will fit right in! Dues are $12 a year.

Come out and give it a try. After a few sessions, if you decide you like the game as much as we do, we invite you to join our club. Our dues are only $6 for the remainder of the year. Bill Templeman rolled 5-point frame during the past month. An 8-week tournament was completed with Harry Daw taking first place, Russ Ruff in second, and Larry Hunting finishing third. Congratulations go out to all of these players! Members of the Bocce Club traveled to Sun City Sweetgrass in Houston to teach residents there to play Bocce. Bocce Fact of the Month: There are basically three game strategies: (1) Roll your bocce ball closer to the pallino than that of the opposition. (2) Knock the opposition’s bocce ball out of its position. (3) Slam the pallino away from the bocce balls. The latter option may result in a no-score for that frame. Remember that the bocce ball must be within 36 inches of the pallino to 2 Sun Rays January 2012

score but no score for either team is better than any score for the opposing team.
