, 1974 $8£^ Scenes From \ By McGrow Edison John Spence keeps his head down on a chip shot. Spence holed out from 90 feet on this shot Friday at Berry Hills in winning his third Kanawha Valley Golf Assn. Tournament title. Part ot his award was a victory kiss from his wife Cindy. (Staff Photos by Lawrence Pierce) · Jim Passero, who finished third in :the Kanawha Valley Golf Assn. Tour- ·nament, puts his arm around his cad-die -- his 12-year-old son Chris. At "right is David McKinney, who tied for seventh in the first flight. McKinney worked the midnight shift at DuPont and got only a couple of hours sleep each during the tournament. (Staff Photos by Ferrell Friend) The Kanawha Valley Golf Assn. puts on a fine tournament. It's fun to play in and fun to watch. But I heard three suggestions from golfers last week that I feel would make the KVGA even a better tournament. The three suggestions are: (1) open the KVGA tournament to public course golfers; (2) have more flights to give the higher handicap fellows a chance; and (3) increase the field over the72 players now accepted. "I'd love to see%ll the local players in this tournament," remarked Dr. Jack Shamblin Thursday after his round at Kanawha Country Club. "There were three fellows watching today -Dave Gillispie. Moon Mullins and Kenny Bowen -- who ought to be in this thing." The Kanawha Valley Golf Assn. is composed of players from five country clubs: Berry Hills, Kanawha, Edgewood, Sleepy Hollow and Meadowbrook. Tournament director Jim Chatfield carefully points out that it is a Kanawha Valley Golf Assn. tournament"- not a Kanawha Valley "open" tournament. CARMAN 1 realize that the KVGA is under no obligation to take in golfers from the public courses like Big Bend, Shawnee and Coonskin. But I think that if the KVGA did open its tournament to all golfers, it would produce a true Kanawha Valley championship and it would give local golf a great shot in the arm. The Big Bend golfers feel a great deal of resentment -- whether justified or not -- over the fact that they can't play in the KVGA. The BIG Bend people can play in the State Amateur but not the KVGA. Country Club members and public course golfers compete together in complete harmony and friendship in such tournaments as the Heck's Open this weekend near Madison. So why not the KVGA. too? Golf Should Take Lesson From Tennis Golf should take a lesson from tennis in this area. The Tennis, Inc. program opened up that game to all persons in the Kanawha Valley. Nobody is excluded from local tennis tournament!;. Maybe that is one reason but tennis is booming around Charleston while golf is merely holding its own. I think it would be great if Big Bend was accepted into membership in the KVGA and put on the rotation of courses to be played. The details would have to be worked out but I bet most golfers wouldn't mind paying a higher entry fee. And I bet that such fine amateurs as Bob Johnson and Kenny Bowen would enter instead of sitting it out. The second suggestion was that there be more than two flights in the KVGA. A third flight was eliminated this year. "It looks like they are trying to cut out the higher handicap golfers," said one player. "Look at me. I've been playing five years and have a 22 handicap. I'm competing against guys who have been playing 20 years and have a 10 handicap. I would like a sporting chance for my money," the player added. The third suggestion was to increase the field above 72. Several men who wanted to play couldn't because the field was already full. "I don't see why they couldn't take in more people and move up the tee-off times," said one golfer. "Most of us take a week of vacation to play in this and some of the guys are retired." This is meant to be constructive criticism. If anybody has any comments, I would be happy to print them in my column. * V * Norris Brown Most Consistent Golfer Some notes from the KVGA Tournament: Norris Brown didn't make the cut in the first flight but he should get some award for consistency. Brown shot three straight 91s on different courses ... .Pin positions were easy at Edgewood and Sleepy Hollow but they were stuck in tough places at Kanawha and Berry Hills Several of the g9lfers, like Ray Payne and Jim Passero, used Hobie Hannah's'"potato masher" putters in the tourney . .. .Frank Pava discovered the secret of playing well at Berry Hills. Pava shot a 74 and commented, "I was down the middle of S.A. 4 Y' Gage Camp Registration Today Final registration for the St. A l b a n s YMCA basketball camp will be held from 1-4 p. m. today at the YMCA.

"My dad was superintendent of the Sunset Memorial Park. He got some old golf balls and bought a five-iron for 50 cents and gave them to me," John recalled. "We lived in Dunbar.

However, with the appearance of the new Encyclopedia of Chess Openings (published under the auspices of theWorld Chess Federation). MCO may lose that reputation. Volume C. the first published volume of a projected five-volume set, offers an extensive up-to-date systematic coverage of all openings which arise after 1. P-K4 P-K4 and also includes complete coverage of th French Defense. Furthermore, each opening is surveyed by a member of a distinguished team of contributing authors (Gligoric. Tal. Larsen. Korchrtoi to name a few) who specialize in thatopening! Outstanding features include references to the Chess Informants, a special code system which eliminates the need for a written test and numerous 1973 references. This 348-page volume (with 450 diagrmas) is a must for the ftrious chess player! Able! James L. Fisher Fisher, Gilkenson Insurance Agency Inc. Joseph M. Sipple, Joseph M.
