Mediocrity returns, with tiny pie

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The 2017 season of the Mediocre Golf Association is upon us with the arrival of its first tournament, the Rebel Beach Am-Am, on Sunday at the Yellowknife Golf Club.
Shaun Morris, president of the Yellowknife MGA chapter, said the 'Rebel Beach Am-Am' -- a play on the popular PGA Tour 'Pebble Beach Pro-Am' -- is the only team event of the season and pairs will be hitting the links to try and snatch the trophy.
The aptly named MGA is for players who aren't very good at golf but still want to have fun playing the game. In keeping with that spirit, the Rebel Beach prize pot is a whopping $6.20, with the top 16 players competing for a slice (and only a slice) of that pie. The lower the place, the smaller the cheque.
The deadline to get in on the action is Saturday.

Track athletes get warm-up

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - With the NWT Track and Field Championships coming up in Hay River next month, its big warm-up event is set to go down this Saturday at 9 am.
The Yellowknife Track and Field Meet will feature a number of athletes who will be heading south in June competing in many of the events happening during territorials, said Chris Gillander, the man in charge of this year's meet.
Gillander said the long distance races - the 3,000 and 5,000 metre - will kick things off, followed by the 50 to 1,500 metre races and field events like javelin, shot put, high jump and long jump.

Fastpitch season on the horizon

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - It's softball season and the Yk Fastball League, fresh off its bountiful Chase The Ace endeavours, is gearing up for 2017.
The league's annual general meeting will be held at Elks Hall tomorrow evening from 6:30 p.m.
All of the league's regular business will be discussed, such as the 2017 schedule, upgrades to Tommy Forrest Ball Park and even its annual Tommy Forrest clean-up, which is scheduled for Saturday.
