River Center Charity Golf Tournament set
SEQUIM — The second annual River Center Charity Golf Tournament will be held July 31 through Aug. 2 at the Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course. The tournament, a two-person scramble, is a fundraising event for the Dungeness River Audubon Center, and is sponsored by the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and 7 Cedars Resort.
The cost includes green fees, golf cart, range balls, a boxed lunch of prizes. The tournament entry fee is $80 per person. Teams play once during the tournament.
To register, call the Cedars at Dungeness Pro Shop at 360-683-6344.
The two-person scramble tournament format is designed for players to compete equally, at any level of golf proficiency: Two people comprise a team, each person tees off and subsequent shots are hit from the position of either of the team’s “best shot” (farthest, best fairway position, closest to the hole, including putts). The score per hole is the total of the team’s best shots played.

Coast Guard: Stay safe in the open ocean
SEATTLE — The U.S. Coast Guard advises boaters planning to fish the waters of Marine Area 4 in Neah Bay extra safety considerations.
Fishing in the area reopened Saturday.
The Makah Reservation, including marinas and all services, remains closed to visitors.
The town of Neah Bay on the Makah Reservation represents the primary direct boat access to Marine Area 4, and as a result, those fishing in this area will have to launch from and land in other areas.
La Push, located on the Quileute Reservation to the south of Neah Bay, also remains closed to the public.
The Coast Guard reminds anglers to ensure they have the proper safety gear, as well as plenty of fuel, water, and food on board if they intend to fish in Marine Area 4 for long periods, since nearby marinas will not be open to assist. It is also prudent to check forecasted weather and file a float plan with someone staying back on shore.
The waters from Cape Alava on the Olympic Peninsula north to the mouth of the Sekiu River along the Strait of Juan de Fuca, will reopen to bottomfish and shellfish, including mussels, clams and oysters. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife announced June 12 the reopening of Marine Area 4.
