The entrance fee is $6 for the 18 hole tournament. The first tourney was held December 16, and 30 people showed up for the scramble event despite the rainy morning. Two teams tied at 21 under par that day. The team of Russ Leininger, Linda Tay- lor, and Robert Webb won in a sudden death playoff with Richard Webb, Jerry Taylor, and Harvey Gibson. The second tourney was a 2-person Texas scramble format held December 30. The event was won in dramatic fashion as Robert Bar- nard aced the par 4, 18th hole with his partner Dan Perkins to beat out the team of Darlene Aitkins and Jerry Taylor.

Stop by on your way to Laughlin Also at the QIA this month is a return of the wonderful New Christy Min- strels led by Randy Sparks. This will be their 3rd year in Quartzsite, singing some of their best songs from way back when (you remember them, though, don’t you) Every performance they have done here in the past few years has been such a lot of fun and brings back some great memories of when they played their hits on television and in concerts all over the world. Randy Sparks, one of the original members, wrote a song called Set Your Sights on Quartzsite, and the Legend of Hi Jolly, just for their first appearance here and last year they sang their songs in two concerts, one at 2 p.m. and the other at 7 p.m. They will be playing at the QIA Main Hall on Friday, January 14, and will again do the two shows, since not everyone could see them in only one!! Tickets will be on sale at the QIA office, and they are $12.00 per person. Don’t miss this great show from some of the best musicians that came from way back when and are still going strong!!
