2The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 12, 2012 THE KWAJALEIN HOURGLASS The Kwajalein Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb. 4, 1944. The Kwajalein Hourglass is an authorized publication for military personnel, federal employees, contractor workers and their families assigned to U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll. Contents of the Hourglass are not necessarily of cial views of, or endorsed by, the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Department of the Army or USAKA. It is published Saturdays in accordance with Army Regulation 360-1 and using a network printer by Kwajalein Range Services editorial staff.

No. Due to Department of State regulations, passport renewals still have to be done online or in person at the U.S. Embassy in Majuro or Pohnpei (Federated States of Micronesia), or at a Department of State facility in the U.S. “Junmeto” is a title bestowed upon the most experienced of Marshallese traditional navigators. When large numbers of people migrated, the Iroij or Chief would select the navigator to command the lead canoe of the fleet. Such a navigator would be versed in all aspects of traditional navigation. From beginning to end of the voyage, the “Junmeto’s” word was law on his canoe and the fleet. ... to the wonderful piano recital!

3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 12, 2012 JapanThe best time of year to visit is Spring or Summer. Sites that shouldn’t be missed: Get up early and go to the Tsukiji sh market, but don’t get in the shermen’s way! Be sure to eat some sashimi there; it doesn’t get any fresher. Don’t miss the very interesting Edo Museum. Go to the Harajuku district or the Origami museum; for a few dollars you can take a lesson and make some origami cranes and kimono. Try to see one of the many cherry blossom festivals all around Japan. For a brief time in April, the cherry blossom trees have an explosion of colors that is quite a sight to behold. Temples, pagodas and parks are all more colorful than usual as white, pink and red cherry blossom trees bloom with the rst signs of Spring. Everyone goes out and celebrates by having a picnic under the cherry blossom trees. Travel tips? Don’t let the subway scare you from seeing and doing things. It is complicated, but with a map of the lines, you can nd your way around cheaply, and the Japanese who speak English are more than willing to help. Make sure to use only a blue or black pen when lling out immigration forms at the airport, and stand in a very neat line; the Japanese attendant kept moving us inch by inch until we were orderly. Don’t be afraid to approach people; we saw two sumo wrestlers on the train platform and asked to take a picture with them and they were very nice.

The 3rd annual 100 mile bike-a-thon was conducted in coordination with the main event held Stateside. The Kwajalein event was organized by Jon Jahnke. Seven of the 17 cyclists nished all 100 miles: Alex and Chad McGlinn, Rich Erekson, Alan Calvert, Randy Sliva, Josh Grif n and Jahnke.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 12, 2012 Two-weekend tournament brings out more than 60 golfers from Kwaj, RoiMary Cisler-Long chips onto the hole 9 green during the Coral Open golf tournament. She placed first in Flight E with a net of 129.Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing Editor The 44th annual Coral Open golf tournament hosted the largest number of golfers in recent years. More than 60 golfers participated, 10 of them from Roi-Namur, which is also a record. The tournament was held April 29 and May 6 at Holmberg Fairways. The event was co-sponsored by the Kwajalein Golf Association and Kwajalein Range Services Community Activities. The weather was brutally hot the rst weekend, with virtually no wind. Some relief came the second weekend with some morning rain showers, but again the day turned hot and muggy. While the weather may have affected a few golfers’ games, others brushed it off and were still able to shoot “Lights Out” (exceptionally well). Part of the fun during the Coral Open is the special events during the week between tournament days, and prizes at various holes during play. On May 1 and 3, the Mixed and Men’s Horse Race was held at the golf course. Golfers with a high handicap were paired with a low handicap and they played 5-6 holes in an alternate shot style. Pairs with the highest score at each hole were dropped until it came down to the three winning teams. During the tournament, certain holes hosted various prizes: longest drive, straightest drive and closest to the pin. There was even a chance to win a new Sun bicycle if you were lucky (or skilled) enough to shoot a hole in one at hole 4. Hole 6 was “target golf,” where you attempted to tee off and land within marked circles on the green. At the end of a two-weekend tournament, golfers and guests gathered together at Emon Beach for a banquet to recognize the winners and hand out highly anticipated door prizes. Chugach donated ve $50 gift certi cates to Golfsmith, the Exchange donated two $100 and two $50 gift cards, Matson donated four $75 gift certi cates to the Hawaii Prince Hotel and ve executive pen and pencil sets. The KGA bought two stained glass giveaways made by Jane Cavender, and four T-shirts from the Haole Open were raf ed off. Anthony’s Pizza gave out free pizza vouchers to tournament volunteers. There were three “grand prize” giveaways everyone was looking forward to having a chance to win. San Juan Construction donated the Sun bicycle that sat at hole 4 waiting to be won; since no one got a hole in one, it was raf ed off at the banquet, won by Johnny Jennop. Community Activities donated 6-month greens and locker fees, won by Adam Vail. Finally, United Airlines donated a round trip ticket to anywhere United Micronesia ies, won by Rich Cunrod. KGA will be sponsoring a Fun Tournament in July. Also look forward to the other big tournament of the year, the Kwajalein Open, which will be held in October. Robin Badayos concentrates on his putt. Rihna Hampson tees off at hole 10. She scored the women’s lowest gross with 161. Mark Kaneko shot even par, 144, for the two-weekend Coral Open tournament. He won men’s lowest gross.
