Gem City Gymnastics and Tumbling and the City of Quincy have been named the hosts for the 2015 Illinois AAU Tumbling and Trampoline State Championships Saturday May 16, 2015. The event will take place at the Oakley Lindsay Center, Quincy. The meet is expected to draw hundreds of athletes and their families to Quincy for the event.
Each and every day there are two Amtrak trains that serve the Quincy area with trips to and from Chicago. The Illinois Zephyr leaves Quincy at 6:12 mornings and returns each night at 10:23. The Carl Sandburg departs Quincy each night at 5:30 and arrives in Chicago at 9:58. That train then returns the next morning at 7:35 from Chicago and arrives in Quincy at 12:03 p.m. With both trains routes ending in Quincy, I always wondered how the train actually turns around in West Quincy to prepare for the trip back to Chicago.
It's hard to believe that we are approaching the end of August and the beginning of football season. With kickoffs coming up, let the tailgating begin! Quincy High School Blue Devil fans and Quincy Notre Dame Raider fans will be firing up those grills prior to games this fall, but who tailgates better?
I was talking with some people about some of the events coming up in the weeks ahead, and a comment came about the events that we no longer have. So we started reeling off one event after another that no longer takes place in the area, but was very popular when it was held years ago. The first one mentioned was the World Free Fall Skydiving Convention at the Quincy Airport. Another one was the South Park Go Kart Races.
With a chance to capture the Prospect League Championship last night with a victory, the Quincy Gems came up on the short side of a 7 to 2 score at the hands of the Chillicothe Paints in Ohio. That loss now sets up a winner takes all scenario tonight as the two teams play the decisive game three.
