Transcript June 4,1982 / Montrose Voice 15 Marcus brightened up to comment, "I don't mind being called sixteenth in the nation a bit!" In closing, Marcus remarked, "Houston defmately made a name for itself at this tourney." ■ Underdogs gearing up in women's softball Of the four game to be played this Sunday in the Women's Softball League, the one to watch just might be the 5:00 p.m. bat battle between the top ranked Renegades, who remain undefeated, and the Royal A's, who have only won one game. However, the stats do not accurately reflect the talent ofthe Royal A's. Perhaps they need a little time to gear up into the winning machine that they can be. Marion Coleman of Kindred Spirits said sometime ago that any team can be defeated, "including the Renegades." Of course, she went on to say that everyone who plays wins merely by the fact of the healthy participation and community feeling that sports affords to people. ■ All Star Time! (Sung to the tune of "Sunny Side ofthe Street") "Grab your vote and get your bat. And just scurry to Galleon's doorstep. Results announced next week ... for the All Star softball peak!'' On Thursday of next week, the MSA Softball League will announce the All Stars at the Galleon, 2303 Richmond. With all the high-powered hiters and fantastic fielders, it is just not safe to make any predictions. But the VOICE will go so far as to say to look for at least one player from the Dirty Sally's team. The AH Stars will be picked this weekend by the voting of the playerB. Players will vote within their own division. fire Tennis tangles full of The struggle for the top seven spots on the MSA Tennis Ladder is getting hotter than the 90 degree weather that the players faced last Sunday. Ron Landrum challenged second seeded Joh n Ryan this past week and managed to upset him 6-2 and 7-5. The last game included a ripping 7-5 tiebreaker that was as scorching as the Texas sun. But Ron did not keep his spot for long. Tuesday, Rich Ryan (John Ryan's doubles partner, but no relation) demolished Landrum 6-3, 6-0. David Robicheaux challenged Jon Colbert this past week also. David's firstchal- lenge on the ladder had been Jon and he had lost, so he had to work his way up the ladder. Last week he moved up twice. But the match with the man who had stuck him at the bottom of the ladder to start out with was a game he looked forward to. He won. Oh, yeah, did he win: 6-0,6-2. Other action saw David Garza valiently challenging Michael Green to no avail. He went down 6-3, 6-2. Also, Jim Olson tried on Eddie Chavez and gave him quite a fight, finally going down to defeat 6-4, 7-5. A tight match. "It's going to get tighter and tighter as we go along," said number four ranked John Ryan. John predicted that he and Rich Ryan will be the top of the ladder before the Texas Challenge Cup. Said John, "Fred Lopez has been up there too long." He also predicted that he and Rich will be the top doubles team, upsetting the favored Fred Lopez/Bobby Hopkins combination. This coming Tuesday, June 8, there will be a meeting of doubles participants to determine who will play in the Texas Challenge Cup. The top four teams will enter, with possible two alternate teams being chosen. The competition for the tournament spots is hot and heavy, but perhaps a good-sportsmanship award might be in order for some of the good-tempered and good-natured players who are having to put up with some unfortunate bitching from not-so-good-natured players. Some people seem to be playing John McEnroe tennis. At least on the sidelines. ■ MSA Softball fundraiser Check vour change, because there is Next week in the Voice The movies ofthe summer another fundraiser on its way. This one is a joint fundraiser for MSA Softball League and CHE (Citizens for Human Equality), and it will take place on June 17 at Miss Charlotte's Dance Hall and Saloon. The planned festivities for the evening include a hot dog supper, country/western and rock & roll music by the Flying Blind Band, a pep rally for the game with the Fire Department on June 19, and a "Jock Auction." Well, most of the festivities are self- explanitory, but perhaps some elucidation on the term "Jock Auction" might be in order. According to Jim Wells of CHE, David Prejean (Mr. Gay Texas) and a softball player (as yet unnamed) will give the shirts off their backs for the cause. The audience will be able to bid on the outer items of clothing that the two gentlemen are wearing, until an item of underclothing remains. Then the audience may bid as to who gets a chance to dance with the gentlemen so clad. David is an accomplished dancer and teaches dance, but Jim Wells said, "I don't know if the damn softball player can dance or not." The tickets are $5 and the proceeds go directly to the fund from ticket sales. They are available through individual team members and through the efforts of a long list of bars. Tickets will be available on the 13th at the Copa, which is the night ofthe farewell performance of Mr. Tiffany Jones (Ken Whitehead). Other clubs that will help in the ticket selling at dates and times to be announced, are Miss Charlotte's, J.R's, Mining Company, Galleon, Brazos River Bottom, Chases, The Drum, Mary's, Numbers 2, Briar Patch, Dirty Sally's, Loading Dock, Rascals, Baja's, The Barn and The Ranch. The choice of Miss Charlotte's as the site of the fundraiser was informally protested by several women becauGe of the club's dicriminatory policy towards women, but in the spirit of the theme of Gay Pride Week, there will probably be support from the increasingly-active female portion of the MSA and of CHE. In explaining the door policy of the club several weeks ago. Miss Bonnie (of TLC Booking and Miss Charlotte's) pointed out that there was no exclusion policy during the week. She went on to say, "You know how straight clubs offer special rates to women on certain nights? Well, our standard door charge on weekend nights is $10. But we offer a special for the men of $2." On the 17th, equality prevails, however, and one price pays for all. Said Jim Wells of Miss Charlottes' efforts on behalf of the organizations, "Charlotte has been vary generous to us."
