Kiva Classic social events
The Kiva Classic is more than squash. It's also a great time with many social events to which all entrants and their significant others/guests are invited.
Parties and receptions
On Wednesday evening, Nov. 29, we're holding an informal Welcome Reception at the Club for early arrivals. (Dress is casual.)
Thursday evening, Nov. 30, is a cocktail party with hors d’oeuvres at the home of Tim Farrell and Kristina Alley. (Dress is business casual.)
On Friday night, Dec. 1, we will have a buffet dinner at the Club. (Casual dress.)
On Saturday night, Dec. 2, we will have cocktails and a light buffet dinner at the Gerald Peters Gallery. (Dress is business casual.)
For players who are staying over Sunday night, there will be a Sunday afternoon reception at Gay and Graham Sharman’s home, followed by a “Dutch Treat” dinner at Harry’s Roadhouse.
We will also have the usual breakfasts and lunches at the Club during the tournament.
Museum tours, walks and hikes
In addition to the parties, we're also offering some tours and excursions.
On Thursday, Nov. 30, and Friday, Dec. 1, we’re offering free, docent-led, hour long tours of two museums on the Plaza.
At 10:30 a.m. both days, you can visit either the New Mexico History Museum or the New Mexico Museum of Art.
Please email Walter Burke (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want to attend and let him know how many are in your party. Space is limited, so it’s first-come, first-served. Reservation deadline is Monday, Nov. 20.
On Saturday at noon, you can join in on a guided tour of downtown Santa Fe and the Plaza. The tour will start at the Club and end on the Plaza. There is no charge for the tour, and it is not necessary to sign up in advance. The walk will take approximately 2 hours.
On Saturday at 2 p.m., you can hike the Santa Fe foothills with Tournament Director Walter Burke. He'll lead an informative 1.8-mile hike on the Dale Ball trails, just north of the Club. We'll leave the club at 2 p.m. Walter can take three people in his car. Additional hikers will have to carpool for the 3-mile drive. Parts of the trail are steep, but the views looking towards Santa Fe are spectacular. The hiking level is “easy to moderate.” No special equipment is needed other than a comfortable pair of shoes. Allow two hours for the hike. If the trail is icy or the weather is inclement, the hike may have to be canceled.
