We left Charles Town on a beautiful morning and it was still nice when we arrived at the golf course but the rains came before we finished 14 holes. We did get 18 holes in on the second day before the rains came. Except for a few hardy souls we were completely rained out on the third day. Canaan Valley is a beautiful area. The lodges are very nice and the personnel is most ac- comodating. The golf course is just "semi- tough" and very plush. However. there is one hole I don't care if I never have to play again and that is No. 9. That should be a par six - then maybe we could score a double bogey on it. Blackie Davis said he would give a dollar to anyone who parred it and I think he knew his dollar was pretty safe. We had a fun time arid I don't think the weather dampened anyone's spirit too much. Ladies Day on Thursday, June 8, was a Blind Bogey tour- nament. The magic number was 73. Lucille Robertson played herself right out of the match shooting an 86 for a net 66. Lang Phillips won the ball with a net 71, There was a tie for Low Putts between Lang and Lucille and Lucille was determined the winner of the ball in that category. In our Chip-In Department: after two terrific shots LuciUe Robertson chipped in from the back fringe on No. 12 for a birdie 3. Our next event at Sleepy Hollow will be the Ladies Handicap Championship. I. Kahaleheli Award Given To Six At JHS The first annual John Kahaleheli Memorial Awards were made to six members of the Jefferson High SchoOl track and fieldsquad at an outing held June 2rid at the Bardane Com- munity Center.
