92 FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6 - MONDAY, SEPTEMBER g, 2013 4I SPORTS & OUTDOORS Cape Gazette Digital detachment-at the Labor Day Last Blast Prediction Run Enos Benbow cruises past field of 145 By Dave Frederick A sense of digital detachment permeated the field ofrtmners at the start of the 23rd annual Last Blast Prediction 5K run Aug. 31 in Rehoboth at the Grove Park course. The race is a bit of a fun run for a serious crowd who must predict their times and are for- bidden to wear chronographs, GPS tracking devices, pedom- eters and pace makers. Ankle bracelets issued by probation and parole are permitted with supporting documentation. Back on the race course, it was Enos Benbow in his first of three races on the day running away from the field of 143 in a time of 17:19. Enos was chased to the finish line by Cape runner Ryan Thornburg in 18:00 and masters runner Mike Sewell in 18:10. Cindy Conant, 52, of Kensing- ton, Md., and Rehoboth Beach was the first woman to cross, in 20:42. Susan Dunn was second for the women in 21:43, followed by Cape runner Keren Rams in 22:41. The racing series age group winners were announced at the post-race bagel and banana nut celebration. A runner must complete five 5K races and a five- miler to be eligible for the series.

Sunday golf gang's ace streak continues nnie Get Your Gun" is a famous Broadway musi- cal, based very, very loosely on the life and times of Annie Oakley. 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 Cullen and Rich Collins, scored holes in;one on the 111-yard par 313th 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. Charity golf tournaments filling Cape Region September calendar The fall golf season in the Cape Region often includes several golf tournament fun- draisers, and this year is no exception. 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. Sponsorship opportunities remain available. For more information, check the DRFC website at, or contact Renee Blessington at , 302-454-2730. The Cape Henlopen Senior Center will hold its Annual Golf Tournament Monday, Sept. 30, at The Peninsula Golf & Coun- try Club. The event helps sus- tain the operating expenses of the popular center on Christian Street in Rehoboth Beach. The $125 fee per player includes registration, a 9 a.m. shotgun start for the 18 holes, the cart, a buffet lunch, a 50/50 raffle opportunity and a silent auction.
