  •     East Hampton High’s boys soccer team got its season off on the right foot, besting Mattituck, the defending Long Island Class B champion, 4-0 in a nonleaguer played at the North Fork school’s field Saturday.
        The game was East Hampton’s first in the Bridgehampton National Bank East End Cup tournament, a tourney contested by 10 teams that Mattituck won last year (as it had the previous two years as well).

  •     “It was Tuesday late,” Irene Silverman began in recounting her hole in one, the sole one of the summer at the South Fork Country Club in Amagansett.
        The scene: the par 3, 143-yard ninth hole on Sept. 6.
        The pairing: Irene and her husband, Sidney.
        The gallery: no one.

  •     It wasn’t just the boys soccer team that began its season on the right foot: East Hampton High’s girls team on Friday, behind the scoring of Raffi Franey (two goals) and Amanda Seekamp, and the goaltending of Kathryn Hess, shut out McGann-Mercy 3-0 in a nonleague game played at the Riverhead school.

  •     McLain Ward, who had to be feeling a bit effervescent after sweeping with characteristic aplomb through the Hampton Classic’s major prize money classes last week, a streak capped Sunday afternoon by a record sixth Hampton Classic Grand Prix win (and third in a row), cradled in his lap the magnum of Louis Roederer Champagne he’d been given, popped the sizable cork, and invited those who’d attended the show-ending press conference to share in a round.

  • When questioned on Aug. 31 about the coming fall sports season at East Hampton High School, Joe Vas, athletic director, was sanguine.
  •     Tim Ensign, a 48-year-old visitor from Chattanooga, Tenn., and Justin Kulchinsky, 38, the owner of Mayfair Rocks, a jewelry store in East Hampton Village, were the winners of the Great Bonac 10 and 5K races in Springs Monday.

  •     The Mighty Hamptons Triathlon will celebrate its 30th anniversary when 1,000-plus competitors in the swim-bike-run event plunge into Noyac Bay at Sag Harbor’s Long Beach at 6:40 a.m. Sunday.
        John Howard, the 1981 Ironman champion and a renowned ultra cycler who holds the 24-hour drafting record of 539 miles and cycling’s world absolute speed record of 152.2 miles per hour, as well as the American Canoe Association’s world 24-hour record, is expected to be there as a member of a relay team.

  •     There were four teenaged riders in Sunday’s Grand Prix, three of them from California, though the one from the East, Katie Dinan, 18, has this country’s — and some would say the world’s — best rider, McLain Ward, as her mentor.

  •     I have in hand the LIPA newsletter that accompanied this month’s bill, and I want to share some of it with you (especially you who have been without power these last six days, as has been the case with me and, from what I can gather, numerous other working stiffs in Springs).
        Interestingly, the newsletter has as its heading, “LIPA Is Prepared for Hurricane Season, Are You?”

  •     “The end is near, the end is near!” I said, running through the village last Thursday afternoon on the way to East Hampton Wines to buy a three-day supply of Mudhouse’s sauvignon blanc.
        What else? A whistle. Newsday said in its preparedness list that I should have one. It’s more impressive if you have a whistle when you run through the village shouting “The end is near (Tweet)! The end is near (Tweet)!”
