Mangin Photography Golf Tourney Results
The second annual Mangin Photography Open took place on July 1, 2000 at Boundary Oak Golf Course in Walnut Creek, CA. There were 52 participants in this years tourney who played in a blind-bogey format. Ron Riesterer of the Alameda Newspaper Group had the lowest gross score with an 80.
Kevork Dejansezian of AP Los Angeles was the big winner with a net score of 54. Alan Greth of Contra Costa Newspapers turned in the grossest score of the day by shooting a gross 164. That's hard to do. Check out the rest of the results by visiting the official website: http://www.manginphotography.com/manginopen.html

The Seattle Times' super sports shooter Rod Mar has a new addition to his family.
Damon Hoover Mar was born on 6/28/00 and tipped the scales at 7lbs 4oz, 20.5" long.
Rod confides: "Damon, I don't know where that came from (and) Hoover is my dad's name (he passed away last September)."
"Little D-Man is doing great. Evyn (18 mos.) is being a good big sister. She can say "baby" and worries when he cries."
Congrats to Mia and Rod!!!

While admittedly it is NOT Canon's answer to Nikon's D1, a couple of internet reviews of the new D30 indicates that there maybe a silver lining for those shooting DCS520/D2000 digital cameras.
Rob Galbraith's essential digi-news site has a lengthy review of the D30 with the photojournalist and sports shooter perspective.
A more technical look at the D30 can be found on Phil Askey's "Digital Photography Review" site at:
