Kruzers host jeep rally Rollingson was a name that seemed to keep popping up in the list of first and second place finishers in the Fifth Annual Lethbridge Coulee Kruzers Jeep Rally staged over the weekend. Of course, there were five of them in the competition, but between them they took first in eight events, and finished second in another. Bill Rollingson Jr. downed Fred Stayk of Calgary in the final of the men's polebending event and picked up second place in the four cylinder men's obstacle event. Meanwhile, his wife Kathy won the four cylinder women's obstacle event along with the Class G hillclimb as well as taking the women's polebending event after besting Betty Stayk in the final run. And their son Billy picked up first place in the kid's tire race and the decoration competition. Bill Rollingson Sr. and Flo competed the Rollingson triumphs by taking first in the Class H men's and women's hillclimb events respectively. There were 74 registered competition vehicles at the three day event, and over 500 people were in attendance for the rally, with its attendant Saturday night barbecue and Sunday breakfast. The vast majority camped out for the weekend, with facilities ranging from the most ragged tents to a 25 foot house trailer. Competitors included drivers from Grande Prairie, Lloyd minister. British Columbia. Montana, and from as far away as Seattle. Washington. There were no serious injuries at the rally, although one jeep almost went over backwards in the men's hillclimb.

Norm Gray coasted after first nine By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor "Always a bridesmaid, never a Look out 1975. Gene Outhouse must be wondering what he has to do to win a Country Club In- vitational golf tournament. For the second time in as many years Outhouse, of High River, has had to settle for se- cond best. Last year he had to take se- cond bows to Joe Tombs of Great Falls. This time around it was to Norm Gray of Calgary. .It's one of those things when you play Gray, or any player of his capability, you just don't give him an edge. Gray had things his own way in the championship flight final as he turned the corner after nine holes, four shots up on Outhouse. As Gray put it. "I felt very good, shots were just working for me." They worked just too often for Outhouse who fell 3 and 1 to the new Country Club In- vitational champ. Both Gray and Outhouse had their hands full advancing to the championship flight. Gray bested Randy Andreachuk of Lethbridge in one semi-final while Outhouse had to send veteran Bill Town- send to the sidelines on the last hole of their match. In earlier games Gray downed Don MacKenzie and Durant James while Outhouse chalked up wins over Terry Kimmel and Dave Gowland. Townsend, in reaching the primary final, won out over Bob Myroniuk and Bill Kar- bashewski. Andreachuk, on the other hand, bested Ron MacKenzie and Mike Bower. All was not lost for Bower, who seems to make a habit of taking home silverware from the Country Club. Bower won the cham- pionship consolation title after going an extra hole with Kar- bashewski. Bower was one-up RESULTS Second flight Mark MacKenzie over Tom Boulton. Consolation Tom Hunt. Third flight Doug Brown over Pete Granton. Consolation John Gilfilion.

It took Bower just one extra hole to settle things however. Bob McDonald of the city won the first flight in a chipoff with Otto Riedlhuber of Henderson Lake. McDonald had earlier sidelined Ken MacKenzie of Waterton Lakes while Hiedlhuber ousted Ron MacKenzie. In the consolation final of the first flight Myroniuk was the victor in a nine-hole match with Doug Howes. Myroniuk got past Gowland in one semi-final encounter while Howes upended Durant James in another. One of the more popular vic- tories of the final afternoon of the three-day tourney had to be James' triumph in the horse race. Facing a field of nine of the top golfers entered in the tourney James, of Magrath. survived a struggle with Kitnmell that went two extra holes. James, given very little chance at the start of proceedings, failed to wilt un- der the pressure of Kimmeli's smooth game and downed the Calgary shotmaker with a bir- die on the second extra hole. James said later it was his first look at pressure. "I play in the Magrath tournament." he said. "But it just isn't the same thing." Richard Andreachuk finished third in the horse race. CHIP SHOTS Durant James wasn't kidding when he referred to pressure he hadn't felt before In a chipoff on the second last hole he edged Richard Andreachuk bv a mere three inches Logan Tail, speaking of chip shots, canned his chip shot on the ninth hole to force an extra hole against Bill Broadfoot. Tail's chip-in was for an eight and he went on to win No one can figure out why Bill Henderson was upset at Tail's victory Henderson, who says he's an 11-bandicap. shot a sweel 81 in two matches Monday It will be another year before pro Ed Knglehardt and club manager Don Lymburner gel a chanci- to take a bow lor an excellent tournament, so gentlemen take a big bow now. THE A 0000 TIMES COUNT FOR V SOMETHIN' f AH HEH.' HEH WHAT A TIME THAT WAS...HEH.' HEH.'... AN1 THEN THERE; -WHAT AM I ON I BEFORE I 'IM.y Stamps' rookie quarterback saw a lot of green and gold EDMONTON quarterback Joe Pisarcik of Calgary Stampeders got a rough welcome into the Western Football Conference Monday night as the Stampeders were defeated 20- 6 by Edmonton Eskimos. Pisarcik. a 6-4 import from New Mexico State, not only had to contend with a rugged Edmonton defence, but he also had to put up with a severe lightning and rain storm that drenched the 21.696 spectators at Clarke Stadium and made handling the ball difficult. The rangy rookie was press- ed into service late in the first quarter when starting quarterback Pete Liske suf- fered a hip injury when he was sacked after completing a pass. Pisarcik had trouble getting the Calgary offence moving until the fourth quarter, and when he finally did. he ran into an Edmonton pass rush that wrecked two Calgary offensive drives in. Edmonton territory. "It's tough to keep saying that we are not doing badly when we're not Cal- gary coach Jim Wood said after the game. Calgary's third loss in three outings this season. "But we're not doing that badly, especially with three rookie defensive backs and a rookie quarterback who played nine-tenths of the game." The Eskimos, now 2-0, never trailed as the defensive squad gave the club an early lift. Calgary running barK Rick Galbos fumbled on the first series of plays and Ed- monton defensive back Dick Dupuis scooped up the loose ball and ran 65 yards for a touchdown with less than two minutes gone in the game. Edmonton quarterback Tom Wilkinson ran for an eight- yard touchdown in the second quarter for the other Ed- monton major. Dave Cutler made one of two convert attempts and kicked fourth- quarter field goals from the 49 and 37. while punter Garry Lefebvre added a 51-yard single. Calgary's scoring was pro- vided by Larry Robinson on field goals of 11 and 42 yards. Pisarcik connected on 17 of 35 pass attempts for 217 yards, but most of the yardage was picked up in Calgary territory and in Edmonton territory near the midfield line. The strong-armed rookie was wild when he first replac- ed Liske. but regained his composure by the fourth quarter. But at that point the Edmonton defence toughened UP Pisarcik and Wilkinson each threw one interception and the Edmonton defence sacked Liske and Pisarcik for 35 yards in losses. Wilkinson completed nine of 16 for 107 yards. Edmonton's Roy Bell was the leading rusher in the game with 112 yards in 23 carries. Calgary officials said.they hoped Liske would be ready for the team's next game in nine days. The lightning knocked out the lights at Clarke Stadium for 10 minutes during half- time, causing a slight delay in the beginning of the second half.
