The annual frenzy of hundreds of students hoping to learn about and sign up for some of the more than 350 student clubs and organizations represented at Student Activities Night filled the Notre Dame Stadium concourse Tuesday night. The event, hosted by the Student Activities Office (SAO), provides the student body with a way to see and get involved with the campus’ myriad of student groups and provides clubs with a unique way to advertise themselves, especially to first-year students.This was the second year that Activities Night had been hosted in the Stadium concourse rather than in the Joyce Center. Karen Kennedy, the director of student centers, activities and events for SAO, and described this year’s event as “a great success,” mentioning the high temperature as the only challenging aspect.“I think it’s been great,” she said. “We’ve had a great turnout, lots of interest in our clubs and I’m really pleased with how the event has turned out.”The event ran from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., with large crowds throughout the concourse for the entire duration. A few clubs advertised outside the official venue, such as the Ultimate Frisbee team, which had members on Library Quad tossing frisbees back and forth and encouraging passersby to join the team.The presidents of many clubs were present to attract as many passing students as possible to join. Many tables were strewn with posters, decorations and candy in an attempt to stand out and attract passersby.“Activities Night is awesome because we’re able to reach almost the entire freshman class, but also anyone who’s interested in getting more involved,” said junior Katie Powell, president of the Christian a cappella group Unchained Melodies. “We’re able to find people and yell at them, ‘Do you sing?’ And sometimes they might nod their head and we can rope them in. It’s a good way of reaching people that we might not normally interact with or see.”The president of the men’s boxing club, senior Ryan Richelsen, also said reaching first-year students was the biggest advantage of the event.“With all the newcomers and first-years, it’s good to get our name out there, because a lot of people know about Bengal Bouts [an annual charity boxing tournament held by the club], but a lot of kids come to campus without having heard much about it,” he said. “Just the exposure we can get to a lot of the first-years and also grad students and other people who might wander by helps.”Saul Cortez, a junior and president of Notre Dame radio station WSND, said Activities Night helped him to find rare students with a strong passion for radio hosting.“We really want a nice group of kids who are wanting to continue on with the tradition of working in radio stations,” he said. “It’s hard sometimes to find these kids who are really passionate and will stick through it all four years, but I believe that they’re still out there and want to do something as archaic as radio.”Freshman Alexander Shyne said he hoped to be able to sign up for clubs that allow him to pursue interests he was unable to in high school.“It was very overwhelming after the first half-mile walking through, but it was amazing to see all the clubs and be able to talk to all the people and see all the variety, from board game club to service clubs,” he said. “It was amazing to see how many opportunities there are to form a community outside of the dorm, and I’m excited to pursue as many of them as I can.”Some students, such as junior Griffin Modjeski, had other goals for the night.“I’m just here for the free shirts,” he said.Tags: Activities Night, concourse, Student Activities Office

Tiger Woods waits his turn on the second green of the South Course at Torrey Pines during the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open golf tournament Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014, in San Diego. (AP Photo/Lenny Ignelzi)SAN DIEGO (AP) — Tiger Woods made his 2014 debut in a most dubious fashion — his first trip to Torrey Pines without sticking around until Sunday.Woods went seven straight holes making bogey or worse and wound up with a 7-over 79 in the Farmers Insurance Open to match his worst score on American soil. For the first time in his career, he missed a 54-hole cut that is in effect when more than 78 players make it to the weekend.Woods had to rally just to break 80.After another poor chip on the par-3 eighth hole (his 17th of the third round), he chipped in to save par. On the par-5 ninth hole, he flubbed another chip to about 8 feet and made that for par and a 79.Asked to stop for a comment at least with CBS Sports, Woods said, “No, I’m done.” He signed a dozen autographs, climbed into a van and was driven away.Perhaps the most remarkable figure of this week: He didn’t make a single birdie on a par 5 over three rounds. In fact, he played them in 4-over par.Still, what made the round so shocking is where it happened.Woods was the defending champion and an eight-time winner at Torrey Pines as a pro, which includes his last major in the 2008 U.S. Open. He won a Junior World Championship on this public course along the ocean as a teenager. Woods had only finished out of the top 10 one time at Torrey on the PGA Tour, and that was in 2011 when his game was going through a major overhaul.“It was definitely different seeing him make so many bogeys,” said Jhonattan Vegas, who played alongside Woods on a gorgeous day of very little wind. “He’s human. You don’t expect to see that, but it’s the game. It happens to everyone. And it happened to him today.”The highest score of his career was an 81 in the third round of the British Open at Muirfield, when he played most of his round in 40 mph wind and rain. Woods also had a 79 in the Memorial last year, at the Quail Hollow Championship in 2010 and in the first round of the 1996 Australian Open.As stunning as it was to see, there was little cause for alarm.This makes the second straight year that Woods was eliminated early in his season-opening tournament. He missed the cut in Abu Dhabi a year ago after being assessed a two-shot penalty for taking relief from a sandy area. Woods went on to win five times last year and was voted PGA Tour player of the year for the 11th time.He spoke earlier in the week about not being only a fraction off, which was plausible given the conditions at Torrey, especially on the South Course. For as dry as it has been this week, the rough is thicker and more lush than usual, especially right off the edge of the fairway. On the opening hole, Woods narrowly missed the fairway and could only advance the ball some 80 yards.But he went south quickly on the fabled South Course.Woods was in fairway, 254 yards from the flag on the par-5 18th in the middle of his round. A birdie would have put him within five shots of the leaders, who had just started the third round on the front.His shot came up short and into the water, and his fourth shot flew the green into a plugged lie in the bunker. Woods blasted out and took two putts for bogey. On the first hole, he missed the green and chipped to 30 feet and three-putted for another double bogey, missing his bogey putt from just over 2 feet. It was the first time since the second round of the 2011 PGA Championship that he made consecutive double bogeys.And then it was just one blunder after another — a three-putt on the par-3 third, a tee shot into the bunker on the fourth. From a front bunker on the par-5 sixth, he flew the green, chipped weakly to 6 feet and missed that par putt.So when he ended that ugly streak with a birdie on the seventh, he removed his cap and waved to the crowd.In the midst of this meltdown, Woods still found some perspective. Walking up the hill to the ninth tee, he spotted CBS Sports reporter Peter Kostis, working his first tournament since his bout with prostate cancer. Woods and Kostis have had their disagreements over the years, but the world’s No. 1 player called out to him three times. Kostis walked over and Woods whispered into his ear that it was good to see him back at work.Woods now goes to the Omega Dubai Desert Classic next week. There’s a chance he might not show up at another PGA Tour event until Florida.
Submitted by Grays Harbor RacewayThe Grays Harbor Raceway was back in action for a wonderful night of racing on Saturday August 10th at the 3/8-mile clay oval. The event would be the annual Grays Harbor County Fair Race and would feature the Shipwreck Beads IMCA Modifieds, USAC Ford Focus Midgets, Cut Rate Auto Parts Street Stocks, and Hornets.The #50K Renegade of Kris Asche, from Shelton, would be the chauffer with the early lead in the Shipwreck Beads IMCA Modified feature. Asche would be passed by the Blue Bear Park/Blondie’s Restaurant #26 Shaw of fellow Shelton driver Scott Miller on lap four. Miller would stay out in front until unfortunately he would spin out. After that a great race up front would take place between several drivers.Hoquiam’s Zack Simpson would eventually get his mount to the front on lap ten. After securing the lead Simpson would have the race won and would go on to win the feature keeping all challengers in check. It would mark his second trip to victory lane for the Jacknut Apparel/C&K Machine/Dave’s Small Engine Repair #12 Shaw.Kris Asche would end his night in the runner-up position while third was Joe German of Wishkah in his Wishkah Iron Works/Ozman Services Inc./Powertrain Application #75X Skyrocket. Completing the top five finishers were the J&F Automotive/Bayview Ready-Mix/MASCO Petroleum #8 Sidebiter of McCleary’s Jeff Foster in fourth and Scott Miller, recovering from an early race incident, in fifth.Defending champion Jared Peterson from Stanwood was on a terror once again in the USAC Ford Focus Midget ranks. Peterson, driving the Carla and Gaylon Stewart owned Sno-Lynne Machine #3S XXX, grabbed the early lead and would not give it up. He would however have some fast company behind him including a brief challenge by Garrett Thomas of McCleary late in the feature. Peterson stayed out in front and would earn the triumph which would be his second at GHR in 2013.Garrett Thomas placed his Olson Landscaping/Martelli Distributing #14 Beast in a respectable second place while third was the Great Western Transport/Elma Lanes #91 Beast of Chase Goetz from Snohomish.

Austin Kerrigan, from Aberdeen, rose to the occasion and looked to pick up his first career feature victory. Kerrigan and his #AK47 Mustang was quick all night and would move into the lead on the seventh circuit.Kerrigan would maintain a lead but cautions would occur bunching the field right up. On each restart the Jacknut Apparel/C&K Machine #9 Camaro of Hoquiam’s Jack Parshall would manage to mount a challenge. The two would go back and forth while contesting for the top spot but each time Kerrigan would prevail. In the end Kerrigan would earn the victory while competing in only his second season.Jack Parshall would finish second and Austin’s father Shane, also from Aberdeen, would place third in his #43 Mustang. The Custom Fiberglass/Conger Racing #13XXX of Don Briggs Jr. from Wishkah, and also led the first six laps, wound up fourth followed by Tacoma’s Mike Knox in his Sam’s Auto Repair/Desperado Express #40 in fifth.Willie Wright of Aberdeen would be the big winner in the Hornet division.
