Adult golf tournament to benefit Cub Scouts NORTH--Manchester * Hampstead * Lineboro


April 14, 1993|By PAT BRODOWSKI

A horn will blare at 7:30 a.m. over the Oakmont Green Golf Club in Hampstead on May 7, calling 128 golfers to tee off for the first Hampstead Cub Scouts Golf Classic.

About five hours and 18 holes later, golfers will deliver score cards and be seated for a fried chicken and fruit salad luncheon. The morning tournament will benefit Cub Scout Pack No. 790.

"I thought this might be an easy and different way to raise money for our pack," said Paul Kraushofer, the fund-raising chairman, who likes to swing a club himself. "I play wherever I can get on a course."

Foursomes will be assigned to start at every hole. They'll play "four man best ball" under rules of captain's choice.

It speeds the game: Every person tees off but the group follows one ball, the one with the best location for the next swing.

"If everybody had to go into the water and dig out a ball, it'd slow the play down," said Mr. Kraushofer.

The tourney will benefit the cubs' summertime sailboat regatta and camping programs. The pack also will be rechartered and hold its annual Blue and Gold Banquet on May 16 using some of the tournament proceeds.

Costs to enter the Golf Classic are $45 per individual or $180 per foursome. Carts, fees, luncheon, prizes and a donation to the pack are included.

There's room for several more foursomes. Women are welcome. Call Paul Kraushofer before April 30 at 239-4142.


What do 17,750 cans of soup look like?

Luckily for Diane Cole of Hampstead, she didn't have to see the soup. Just the labels.

One by one, labels have been collected by students at Spring Garden Elementary School and have been redeemed for a mountain of physical education equipment for the school.

"Really, they don't look like that much," said Mrs. Cole. "I just pull out the ones I need. It's really easy."

Mrs. Cole; her husband, Thomas; daughter Mandy, in kindergarten; and son Tommy, in third grade, live on Coltom Farm, at the corner of Lower Beckleysville and Black Rock roads.

"We're the ones the Russians came to visit," said Mrs. Cole. "That was back in February. It was quite dead at the time."

Now Holstein calves are being born. There was one due on Easter, one due a week later, and one every week" after that, she said.

Between the calvings, you'll find Mrs. Cole at school.

"I help the third grade out" once a week, she said. She picks up the soup labels donated to the school and "it only takes two hours a night to cut and separate them."

"She does a wonderful job," said school secretary Donna Yingling.

When an incentive program comes in from the Campbell company, Mrs. Cole gives the school the labels she has on hand and Craig Walker, a physical education teacher, orders equipment for the school.

"They've gotten an enormous amount of sports equipment," said Mrs. Cole, noting that the school has gotten balls for the children's games and a kindergarten-sized balance beam, and has "a whole list of things they will be getting."


If you enjoy Indian artifacts, you might plan a visit to the Indian Steps Museum in Airville, Pa.

It's in the Susquehanna Valley, where artifacts from 10,000 years ago have been found. Thousands of arrowheads, ax heads and bits of pottery found nearby became Indian-style designs in the walls of a stone mansion built in 1908. Today, it's a museum, with an upstairs gallery dedicated to Indians of the Susquehanna. It also has lovely picnic grounds.

The museum, about an hour's drive from here, opens Thursday, April 15.

Directions: from Interstate 83 north, take exit 6E to Route 74 East through Red Lion, Pa., to Airville. Turn left on Route 425 and go five miles to the river. Turn right on Indian Steps Drive for half a mile to parking.

This summer, two outdoor arts shows will take place at the museum, within sight of the Susquehanna River.

The sixth annual Nature and Wildlife Art Festival happens June 20.

This show attracts top-notch painters, printmakers, photographers and wood-carvers.

A new festival has been announced, for July 24. Early American Crafts at Indian Steps will bring artisans to demonstrate skills and arts of colonial times and Native Americans. No kits or commercial products will be shown.

Both shows, and the museum, are sponsored by the Conservation Society of York County Inc. Those who want to show work may apply for admission now.

Until May 1 for the June show, call June Moyer at (717) 764-4318. Until April 30 for the July show, call Jane Martin at (717) 993-3927.
