The hit play and later hit movie included several memorable songs by Irving Berlin, including "There's No Business Like Show Business" and "You Can't Get a Man With :,-a Gun." However, perhaps the most famous number in the long- running play is "Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better." It appears that Lisa Hutchins, the defending women's club champion for The Rookery Golf Clubs, must have been lis- tening to this song. She decided Zo show her regular Sunday playing companions the golfing equivalent of Annie Oakley's sharpshootingCkills. 4" After all, earlier this sum- mer two of those regulars, John S Cullen and Rich Collins, scored holes in:one on the M-yard par 3 13th hole at Rookery North. Hutchins went one better on them Aug. 31. Playing into the teeth of a two-club wind, she made her first-ever hole in one on the 140-yard, par 3 ninth hole at Rookery North. "I didn't see it," she explained. "I hit my three-wood because it was so windy, and I thought when the ball landed on the green that I hit it too far. I thought it had roiled all the way to the back. Alan Wagamon checked the hole before I did, and that's how I knew." Hutchins is a past club cham- pion of Shawnee Country Club and an avid golfer along with her husband, Jim, who watched his wife's ace. Jim's mother has also had a hole in one. Jim is still waiting for his to happen.

The Delaware Foundation Reaching Citizens is holding the Sussex County edition of its an- nual three-county tournament " schedule Thursday, Sept. 26, at Baywood Greens in Long Neck. Registration fees are $175 per player, and proceeds go toward identifying and funding programs to enrich the lives of Delawareans with intellectual disabilities. The foundation is perhaps best known for the an- nual Blue-Gold All-Star football game, pitting upstate football players against equally talented players from downstate schools. However, the golf tournaments have also been major con- tributors in recent years toward DRFC's fundraising goals. The four-player-per-team scramble event begins with a shotgun start at 11 a.m with lunch and beverages furnished during the round. A 19th hole, dinner and award ceremony takes place in the evening.
