S. LETHBRIDGE, AlBERTA Summer is coming. Be ready o pair of Prescription Sunylasscs. Second of three articles By UIC'IIAUn S1URKK ilcrald Staff Writer If the arena -fire March 10, did one good thing, it was to illus- t r a I c the lack of ice facilities in t h e city which exist- ed even hc- fore flames I levelled the old structure. One month after the fire, the Instant Ice Council consisting of citizens vitally concerned with the problem, n.ot logelhcir to provide a unifying force (or all inter- ested people and service groups in the the common cause." The group initiated a ma- jor houso-lo-housc drive cov- ering homes with a two- fold purpose: to determine if the people of I.cthbi idge would support construction of a major arena; and to gather proof of that support in the form of dollars. The support was there and so were (he dollars nf them. The "gimmick" used by the Instant Ice Council was to sell a brick, which would be part of a feature wall with the name of each contributor inscribed, to be put up in a new arena. The bricks sold for dollars each. About 81) people bought bricks. The local service elubs have pledged support. A contribution will come from the Kinsmen Club. The Lions Club has said it will provide an organ and sound system for the arena. The Green Acres K i w a n i s Club has pledged for a clock. The council's sole interest is in promoting a large, new arena for the city. Several other dubs have said they will contribute to projects related to the arena, but so far have been unspc- cific. The support has been sub- stantial, but not overwhelm- ing, says Jim Bole, chairman of the instant Ice Council. Most of the people contact- ed during the house-to-house drive, for example, agree there should be an arena. However, there are mixed emotions as to where it might best be located and to what uses it might be put Mr. Hole said. A canvass of local busi- nesses was unsuccessful be- i-ause the businessmen "wont- :xl to know, what the money :.s going for, be ;aid. When the decision is made lo go ahead with an arena, the business canvass will re- sume Tiie ice council's view is Lliat an arena should be big enough, a minimum of scats, to attract major junior hockey. Tlicre is an emphasis, how- ever, on the arena being a multi purpose facility, one which can be used the year around. Some of the suggest- ed uses, other than for hoc- key, include indoor rodeos, circuses, car and boat shows, basketball, national figure skating competition and the Macdonald's li r i e r curling championships. On that last event, John Forresl, secretary treasur- er of the Lelhbridge Curling Club disagrees, "The brier usually only goes to major centres. It should come to Al- berta every 10 years and when it does, Calgary and Edmonton fight for it." The brier is the only curl- ing event which would require a major arena to handle the number of fans attending. Other championships, nation- al or local, don't attract that many fans, Mr. Forrest said. As for local curling, "the fa- cilities here are quite ade- he said. Tlicre are about 550 mem- bers in the club and 300 non- members who also use the Civic Ice Centre in various leagues. Enthusiasm for curl ing has dropped off in rece-nl years, however. The Civic Ice Centre should last at least another years. Mr. Forrest said, although the pipes for ice making may need replacing before much longer. we (the cily) defin- itely have to have a new are- with a minimum sratim; capacity of he said. "Medicine Hat has proven the atlrac.ion of an arena and junior hockey." The Lcthbi idge Figure Skat- ing Club, on the other hand, could use ati arena for figure skaters and to attract higher calibre skaters from across the country. Sonja Ja- cobson, former professional at ihe club, an arena is more important for hockey, bov.evrr.
