Barclays Tournament Tees Off At Bethpage Black

Written by Ronald Scaglia Friday, 24 August 2012 00:00
It’s about the length of two football fields, but for the world’s best golfers, it is 200 yards that can crush the dreams of winning a prestigious golf tournament, or propel a player into glory with an accurate tee shot and a well-executed putt. It’s the 17th hole of the Bethpage Black, where the Barclays Golf Tournament is being held this week.

The 17th hole is considered to be a signature hole of the course. During the 2002 and 2009 U.S. Open Championships, which were held at Bethpage Black, a loud and enthusiastic crowd helped to put a New York stamp on those tournaments. Barclays tournament directors are hoping for that same excitement as players arrive at the challenging hole.


New York Islanders Hold Tryouts For 2012-13 Ice Girls

Written by Karen Gellender Friday, 17 August 2012 00:00
A blazingly hot August day is a great time to head to Iceworks just to cool off, but the dozens of young women who showed up to the Syosset ice rink on Sunday, Aug. 12 had something more ambitious in mind: showing off their skating skills to win one of just 10 spots on the New York Islanders 2012-13 Ice Girls Team.

With the exception of one lockout season (2004-05), the Ice Girls have been part of the show at Islanders’ games since the 2001-02 season. In addition to presenting the Islanders flag at every game, Ice Girls keep the ice clean during games, and perform an additional routine when the team wins. They also play games with the fans in the stands during time outs and distribute T-shirts. The girls must be over 18 with strong skating skills, capable of skating backwards as well as doing lunges, spirals, t-stops and power crossovers.

Community event to fundraise for foundation and feature 20 teams

On Saturday, Aug. 4, The Michael Magro Foundation will be teaming up with Master Mind Unit for their Fourth Annual Soccer for a Cause at the Kevin Kolm Field in Hicksville.

The tournament, which raised close to $9,000 last year, helped the Michael Magro Foundation to assist pediatric patients and their families with incidentals that we all take for granted, such as petty cash for lunches, dinners, groceries, gas cards and the like. With mounting medical bills, these families have difficulty with meeting simple needs – and this is where the Michael Magro Foundation comes in, as their gift card program has assisted many families with obtaining the basic needs that would otherwise go unmet.
