Page 15 - Thursday, July 16, 2009 "WHERE THE KID GOT HIS NAME" The Sundance Times Man falls from tower By vonna Schelllng A New York man was life flighted to Rapid City Re- gional Hospital after a fall on Devils Tower last week. The man and a friend, whose names have not been released, were climbing the west face of the monu- ment on Monday, July 6, when the accident occurred. According to Devils Tower personnel, the pair was climbing the E1 Matador route and was about one pitch away from the summit when the lead climber fell approximately 30 feet. It&apos;s thought that the fall might have been caused by a normal rock detachment. Climbing ranger Mike Benning described the climb- ers as "very experienced. They knew what they were doing. Climbing is inherently dangerous and these climbers knew the potential for falling." Benning said the climbers were outfitted with the proper climbing gear and were wearing safety helmets. He addedthat the route they were on is a popular route but is not a normal summit for the average climber. "Only the very experienced usually try to summit there." After the incident, the climbing partner says his friend was unconscious for a brief but unspecified amount of time. After he regained consciousness, the two men rappelled down the Tower and the partner assisted the injured party to the trail. At that point, it's reported that the injured man walked of his own accord to the visitor's center where he intended to get a drink of water and use the restroom. While walking across the parking lot, the injured climber was noticed by Benning and law enforcement officer Joe Stivers, who were working in the office area of the visitor's center. On noticing his climb- ing gear and blood, the first responders brought the man in for an assessment. When his climbing Pine Haven Chamber of, Commerce to host golf tournament fundraiser Golfers from all over the country will meet on the links in Crook County this summer for the 1st Annual Pine Haven Chamber Golf Tournament, scheduled for Saturday, July 25 at the beautiful Keyhole Country Club overlooking Keyhole Reser- voir in Pine Haven, Wyoming. This venue provides the Chamber with the perfect spot for our golf fundraiser event where you ,eaa test your golf skills with the best of the best. This year's tournament is a "Golf Schamble." A Schamble is a type of golf tournament that combines elements of a scramble with elements of stroke plav. Like in a scramble, all members of a team (three in this tournament) tee off and the best ball of the three tee shots is selected. All players move their balls to the spot of the best ball. From this point, the hole is played out at stroke play, with all members of the team playing their own ball into the hole. This Golf Schamble will be played with full handicaps to make sure weaker players contribute to the team score. The team score will be the two low balls of the group. In addition to the prizes for the flights, the tournament will include sponsor awards for Closest to the Pin (men's and women's), Longest Drive (men's and women's) and Longest Putt on the Green (men's and women's). There will also be a pre:tournament Calcutta, starting at 9 a.m., with two places paid per flight. The Chamber Schamble is the second largest Chamber fund- raiser this year. Proceeds go towards the Chamber's operation and event needs. We appreciate your support and are looking forward to a great golf event this year. The cost of the event is only $60 per player or $180 per team (tax-deductible); which includes green fees. Interested players and threesomes of men, women and co-ed teams are invited to join their family, friends and playing partners for a fantastic day of fun, festivities and fundraising for a good cause.

Crook County CattleWomen Recipes I Brought /',.C'<Z.-. to you L;J" partner finally descended with the climbing equip- ment, Benning and Stivers were able to get more of the story. At that time, the Hulett ambulance was summoned to transport the injured man to the Crook County Memorial Hospital where he was further assessed. He was then transported by life flight helicopter to Rapid City, South Dakota, where he remained in ICU for several days. He reportedly sustained a head laceration, elbow contusion and back injuries, among other injuries. "These climbers were using the proper amount of protection," stressed Benning. "This fall was a natural occurrence; a bad experience through no immediate fault of their own. When you do these types of extreme sports, you can do everything right and still get hurt. That's just the way it is."
