PINEHURST'S CLASSIC SHOOT
It Has Traveled Some Distance Along
the Reputation Air Line
$3555.00 Added Money and Special
Class Trophies the 11 iff features ot
9th Annual Handicap
AS AN EXPONENT of
trap shooting, made fa
mous by the Du Pont's
as the "sport alluring,"
Pinehurst now ranks as
America's Monte Carlo
through its classic Mid
winter Handicap. 1 On
the firing line of the
Grand American at Dayton last June the
the Sand Hills' shoot was the prevailing
subject of between squad conversation,
and thus it has been at every big spring,
summer, and fall meeting for nine months
past. "News" has been designated as
"anything people are talking about" and
trap shooters began talking about the
Pinehurst shoot before the first annual
was over simply because the program was
unique. If Pinehurst always leads, never
imitates, f Each shoot has had some
feature to talk about and the Midwinter
Handicap has, in consequence, traveled
some distance along the Reputation Air
Line during the past six years.
An attractive feature of the seventh
annual tournament scheduled for Jan
uary 21, 22, 23, and 24 is the special tro
phies offered for the four highest scores
made by those who have shot the first
live hundred targets of the regular pro
gram the field divided into four classes,
the Preliminary and Handicap winners
being barred as competitors for the special
trophies. The big card is added money
amounting to $2555.00 a sum exceeding
-even the premier Grand American and
equalled only at shoots with a large
entrance as a basis for estimate. The
Handicap winners are guaranteed six
moneys, $350.00, $300.00, $250.00, $200.
00, $150.00 and $100.00 in the order given
in addition to cups for both the Handicap
and Preliminary winners. The Prelimi
nary winners are guaranteed five moneys '
150.00, $125.00, $100.00, $90.00 and $75.
00. The total value of the trophies offered
is $600.00 and in addition to those in the
Preliminary and the Handicap and the
special trophies, there is the usual gold
medal for high amateur average and a
trophy for the average of the entire
program. The sweepstakes with their
regular and additional optional entrance,
also offer attractive opportunities. There
are also optional sweeps in all hundred
target events exclusive of the Prelimi
nary and the Handicap. Inter-state rules
will govern and the Squier money back
-system will provide for the "under dog."
Luther Squier will again personally
manage the shoot and Charles North will
see that the Ideal-Leggitt traps work
without a hitch.
Preliminary practice and unscheduled
sweepstakes will precede the regular
program on Monday and Tuesday. Wed
nesday and Thursday will be devoted to'
lour fifteen-target sweeps and two twenty
in the morning, and two twenty and
four fifteen in the afternoon. The hundred
target Preliminary on Friday will be pre
ceded by four fifteen and two twenty
target sweeps and the same program will
precede the Handicap on Saturday, f In
many ways the week will be a notable
one, anticipated by the entire Village, and
numerous social affairs are planned at the
hotels with The Carolina as the center
from which interest radiates. Golf, tennis,
riding and fox hunting will also claim
the attention of many who come early
or linger after the tournament for the
enjoyment of the diversified attractions
of the Village. 1 The detailed program
will be forwarded promptly by the
Country Club Secretary in response to a
post card request. Mail and telegraph
entries are both acceptable and ammuni
tion may be shipped in care of the Club.
Other trap events on the Country Club
program include weekly hundred-target
handicaps from January 26th to March
23rd. An all-season high average gold
medal will be awarded for the four best
gross scores made by contestants who
have shot at not less than six hundred
targets, t In equipment and location the
trap shooting grounds are generally
acknowledged to be the finest in this
country, and a week at winter's beginning
in this sunny land is an experience for
both old friends and new.
Open Real Estate Office
The opening of a real estate office in
the General Office building by Messrs.
Ralph W. and Frank C. Page, under
the firm name of Page Brothers, is in
line with the present agricultural develop
ment. Among their numerous valuable
holdings in the vicinity is 2400 acres
purchased by their father, Ambassador
Page, last winter. Formerly known as
"Green Hill" this property extends from
a point Southwest of The Carolina to the
rear of the Dairy. They believe it to be
ideal for gentlemen's farms of from one
to two hundred acres and in line with
this contemplate establishing a model
place there by way of exemplification.
In this connection it is interesting to note
that Messrs. Gates, Pumpelly and others
were first interested in the section by
these two "live wires."
