Transcript Play ball! gay athletic clubs form across the state By BILLY FRAZIER Have you heard the talk about a Pan-Texas Gay Athletic Championship9 It is more than just talk. Alteady the Montrose Sports Association of Houston, the Turtle Creek Athletic Club of Dallas. and the newly developing Capitol City Athletic Club of Austin have been engaging in rousing and intense athletic competition involving volleyball in each of the three cities. Dallas held the first tennis tourney in June. Gay People of West Texas (GPWT) from the Lubbock area also participated last year. San Antonio, Galveston, Corpus Christi and other cities will soon get the message about how much fun is to be had on (and off) the playing fields and will want to organize their own teams. Tournaments are usually played weekends with the sponsoring ci visitors to all sorts of social parties, and dining excursions, the "thrill of victory and the these pan-Texas get-togethers f mong accomplished as well as as Especially noticeable is a cama participants which is truly hea all, any time the two legendary and Houston, can spend the majo gether without coming away with fingernails, you have to admit of inter-city diplomacy has occ during the day on ty also hosting soirees, poolside and in addition to agony of defeat," oster excellence a- piring gay athletes, raderie among the rt-warming. After Texas rivals, Dallas rity of two days to- bl*©dy fangs and that a marvelous feat urred. This rather recent development (starting last spring) of sports interest in the gay community has been so encouragin^that plans are now being made to expand into other popular types of competition; for evample. organizing teams for baseball, swimming,and diving, marathon races, field sports, golf and other areas where theie ir eno^a'1 interest and participation to make it exciting and challenging. How do YOU join the fun and games? Simply contact the oganizers in your city for more information. If there is no present organization, start talking it up with athletes you know and then approach a local gay service organization, or local bar, for support; or simply organize yourselves. For helpful hints and guidelines visit a city that already has it together and ask them for useful information. In Dallas, go by Revershon Park (off Turtle Creek Blvd.) on Sunday afternoon around 5pm. In Houston, try Cherryhurst Park (off Ridgewood and Cherryhurst St.) on Sunday afternoon around 5pm. In Austin, come by Ramsey Park (off 44th and Burnet) on Sunday from 5 to 7pm. All of us who are already involved invite all of you to join us. We need more athletic representation for all major Texas cities, and also more sideline supporters (where we've been told there is more "action" than on the field). And, after all, what would American sports events be without a cheering section of beer guzzlers on hand? The nevt Austin-Dallas-Houston Tournament will be held the first Saturday and Sunday in August in the Capitol City. Details will be published later. Come on out--bring your friends--and enjoy the game. In Austin, George (owner and operator of the Private Cellar) is generously donating (in the name of good sportsmanship, of course) a free keg of beer to lighten spirits every second and fourth Sunday at Ramsey Park. This kind of support (team T-shirts, free beer, political donations and who knows what else) furthering gay community activities is to be highly commended and deeply appreciated. We thank you, George. ,, C¥UNT jl THE BAR WITH A HEART '05 RED RIVER 472-0418 ^^^H CdPITdL com COMPANY 3004 Guadalupe 472-1676 an extensive collection of coins and currency GOLD JEWELRY FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD ALSO BUYING ANTIQUES AND ALL GOLD 207 DISCOUNT ON GOLD JEWELRY AND COIN SUPPLIES WITH THIS AD. v .
