The Marlinton Rotary Club sponsored a benefit golf tournament at Pocahontas Country Club on August 21 that raised $2,300 for the Beulah Moore and Marlinton Rotary college scholarships. Ten teams waited out rainy weather and enjoyed an excellent afternoon of golf. Two teams tied for the best score and a handicap hole was used to determine the winner.

Mitchell Chevrolet provided a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze as a prize for a hole-in-one on the tenth hole, but there was no winner.
