The Mission Winter Texan Activities Association is gearing up for another series of fun tournaments for Winter Texans, and you’re invited to get your park to participate in the games. The activities being held this year include a pool tournament, golf tournament, bowling, and the annual Cabaret Dance held at Mission Bell Resort.

This year’s fun begins with the pool tournament, which kicks off Jan. 5 with the Ladies 9 Ball Singles hosted at El Dorado Acres. The series of nine pool tournaments continues through Jan. 29 and is hosted by several different retirement resorts in the Mission area, including W&I Resort, El Dorado Acres, Bentsen Grove, Hidden Valley Ranch and Aladdin Villas.

To register for the pool competition, contact Larry or Dawn Schrader at 956-638-0506, or register at the resort the day of the competition. Registration fee is $2 per participant per event. Each resort that is a member of the Winter Texan Activities Association is permitted to have two participants or two teams.

If your park or resort is not a member of the WTAA, it’s easy for them to join by calling Sharon Northedge at 956-600-8629. The annual association dues are only $20 per park.

Bowling Tournament

The bowling tournament will be held Jan. 6, 7, 13 and 14 at IncrediBowl in Mission. Tournament participants receive a discounted cost to bowl in the events. To register, contact Cathi Svetlecic at 816-898-0635.

Golf Tournament

The 16th annual golf tournament will be held Saturday, Jan. 20 at Shary Municipal Golf Course. This is a four-person scramble with 7 a.m. check-in and 8 a.m. start. The cost is $40 per person, including green fees, cart, luncheon and awards and prizes. (No discounts for golf course members.) Team captains are responsible for registration and entry fees. Entry deadline is Jan. 4. Make checks payable to W.T.A.A. Bring registration forms and fees to the Jan. 4 meeting of the WTAA at 1 p.m. at Tropical Valley Acres club house.

For more information and registration, contact Sharon Northedge at 956-600-8629.

Cabaret Dance

The annual Cabaret Dance will be held at Mission Bell Resort on Feb. 13 from 7-10 p.m. Tickets are $7.50 per person. Music will be provided by Keys & Strings. For advance tickets contact Sharon Northedge, or purchase tickets at the door.

Volunteers Needed

The Winter Texan Activities Association needs park reps and volunteers to help run the tournaments and activities they are hosting this year. If you can help in any way, contact Northedge. Or if you want to learn more about what WTAA does before jumping in to help, attend the WTAA meeting on Thursday, Jan. 4 at Tropical Valley Acres. The WTAA board of directors meets monthly on the fourth Thursday.

There are perks for park reps, such as free tickets to the annual Cabaret Dance.

If your Mission area park is not participating, talk to your park manager or activity director and see if your can get them to pay the $20 membership dues to allow your park’s residents to join the fun. (Residents at some parks pay the dues themselves, so they can participate.) Let’s keep a good thing going by getting your park to join and by volunteering. Every volunteer is important and appreciated.

Member Parks So Far

The parks who are currently members of the WTAA include: Aladdin Villas, Bentsen Grove, Bentsen Palm, Circle T, Fiesta Village, Rollin Homes, Split Rail, Sunlight, Wagon City South and Wintergreen Estates. The park you represent in these tournaments must be a registered member of WTAA.

All park reps and others interested in these events are asked to attend the WTAA meeting on Jan. 4. This will also be registration day, so anyone wanting to register for any of these events – or to find out more information – is asked to come to this short meeting at Tropical Valley Acres where the event chairmen will be in attendance.
