Maryland Host Nationals

Baltimore has hosted the NAtional Championships on many occasions ( 1965, 73, 81, 87, 96 and again 2008).  John Voneiff, Robert Everd, Myself, ANdrew Cordova ran the 96 and 2008 Doubles Championship flights and there were awesome.  I want to thank from out of town:  Ambassador William H. G. Fitzgerald, the Pierce family, Morris Clothier, Gordon Anderson, the Mateer family and Mike Mcgroy. From in town I want to thank:  Nancy Cushman, Robert Everd, John Voneiff, Jervis Finney, Vaughan Easter,  Jack Luetkemeyer, The Fitzpatrick family, Charlie Fenwick, Stewart Shettle,Andrew Cordova, The Miller family, Howard Day, Glenn Canner and Malcolm Jensen.  I want to also thanks these people that are relatively new to the MSSRA but have given so much to squash and they are Colin Campbell, Doug Hoffberger, Sage PLatt, Landon Royals and Jim Meek.  All of these people over the decades have given of their money, time and effort to the Game of squash, tennis and or court tennis.

Ambassador Fitzgerald stands as an example: he funded the Fitzgerald center in Washington DC, the at risk tennis program in DC, he with Glenn Canner and my family funded the Junior squash MSSRA program and his squash tournament “the FitzGerald Cup” is the oldest inter-city squash tournament in the United States.
