Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta g - THE lE'THBRIDGE HERAIO - Friday, August 7, WO Some 2$00 Participants Expected For Four-Day Competition outhern berta Games Open Monday Morning At Pincher Creek Hy PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer ''Little Olympics come to Southern Alberta." It reads like fain' tale come true and that, to a certain extent, is just what has happened. Monday morning the town of Pincher Creek. 90 miles west of Lethbriclge, will come to life in such a manner it has never before experienced. Monday the Southern Alberta Summer Games get under way and some 2,000 prospective athletes will converge on the town for four days of competition. Much like an Olympic games the Southern Alberta Summer Games came into being, from an idea conceived by the Department of Youth, in early February. From a small committee's dreams it has grown into realization and will be the first of its kind in Canada. As well as being the first of its kind it will also be the largest ever held by a community in the nation. Excitement and enthusiasm is steadily mounting in Pincher Creek and from Monday to Thursday history will be made. The four-day competition will get under way with a wake-up breakfast and the day's activities will commence. Wl'LL BE FLAME The Games Flame, which will be taken to Pincher by horseback from Lethbridge by members of the 4H light horse club, will leave Sunday morning at 10 and is expected for the opening ceremonies Monday morning at 9:45. A mimber of dignitaries will be on hand for the torch lighting including the Federal Minister of Youth, the Hon. Gordon E. Taylor, his special assistant Mr. John. Hoyce, Earl Dawson, special consultant for Physical Fitness and Amateur Sports in Canada, Deputy Minister of Youth. Les Usher, Mr. Ludwig from the Dept. of Public Works and Dr. Elsie McFarland, Director of the Alberta Youth Council. It is extremely fitting that Dr. McFarlane is a native of Pincher Creek. A parade of athletes, complete, it is expected, with banners designating their respective districts, is scheduled for nine Monday morning. All events will get under way at 10 a.m. sharp. 10 REGIONS A total of 10 regions, making up the nearly 2,000 entrants, will be represented including Crowsnest Pass, Blood and Pie-gan Reserves, the City of Leth-bridge, the counties of Leth-bridge, Warner, and Forty Mile and the Municipal Districts of Pincher Creek, Cardston, Willow Creek and Taber. The competitions include track and field, swimming, slow pitch, equestrian, archery, diving, horseshoes, trap shoot and Email bore. It is the purpose of the Games to provide a vehicle by which all communities have the opportunity to become involved in a meaningful athletic program. The Games has enabled the 10 regions, regardless of size, the opportunity to operate a competition and participation program at the local level for any interested person. Major emphasis has been put on the idea of mass participation, social and physical involvement for everyone, regardless of age, sex or ability. An incentive to win has been instilled at the local level and those winners have advanced from regional finals to the Games in Pincher Creek. As Max Gibb, Lethbridge director for the Alberta Depart- ment of Youth, pointed out, the objectives of the Games are to encourage a grass roots sports program involving the greatest number of people possible, participating in their own community. He said "we want to provide ;> basic and intermediate level of competition for those sports which are deemed beneficial but not presently established in southern Alberta. "T hose competitors who emerge victorious In these the first ever Summer Games will be provided with an opportunity for a higher level of parti- cipation and competitions, with established area and provincial organizations and teams. "We are looking for the undiscovered athlete. One who hasn't had a chance to compete on a higher level," said Gibb. The Summer Games will bring these athletes out. Monday's opening program includes track and field at West End Park, swimming in the Municipal Pool, trap and small bore at Willow Creek and the girls slow pitch tournament. All these activities commence at 10 a.m. After a quick break for lunch the athletes are back at it for the rest of the afternoon. It is hoped all competitions, for the Monday, will be done by five o'clock. Evening festivities, which include a barbecue, get under way at 3:30. Tuesday will see the finals of ANDY CAPP B.C.

"It was just one of those things," the 35-year-cJd veteran said Thursday after he bad lost four shots on two hales and plummeted bade into a tie for second place behind leader George Archer. Jocobs, a slim, soft-spoken veteran in a lengthy slump who last won in' 1965, finished with a two-under par 68 on the tough 7,180-yard Firestone Country Club course. He trailed Archer by one stroke and was tied for second with 41-year-old Paul Harney, now a club pro at Sutton, Mass., and only a part-time tourist. A big group headed by host pro Bobby Nichols followed at 69. Others included Australian Bruce Craimpton, Bob Goalby, John Miller, Steve Reid, Phil R o d g e r s, Lou Graham and Tommy Aaron. Defending champion Ray Floyd bad a 70. Gary Player bad a 72, Jack Nicklaus a 73. U.S. Open champ Tony Jacklin ond Toronto's George Knudson had 74. Arnold Palmer and Billy Gasper, the Master Champion, were not competing. When Jacobs stood on the 16th tee, he was six under par, had not gone over par and needed only a par in to match the record 64 on one of the most demanding courses in the United States and led the field by four strokes. The 16th is a 625-yard par 5 with a pond guarding the green. According to Jacobs, he hit two great shots and laid up just in front of the pond, "Just where I wanted to be." Then with a wedge shot to the green, he shunted dead right onto a gravel approach to a bridge. From there, he chipped over the green into deep rough, failed to get it out, finally reached the green in six and two-putted. and Country Club with a 79, five over par, and posted an 83 Thursday for a second - round lead of 162.

PIERSON, General Farm Supplies gOME STIFF regulations will be enforced this fall on hunters who use snow vehicles in pursuit of game. Last year it became illegal to run over or injure any fur bearing animal with a snow vehicle. This year the regulations have been broadened to read: "no person shall chase, molest, injure or kill any wildlife with a snow vehicle." That means no more chasing rabbits, fox and coyotes with snow vehicles, a favorite pastime for many ever since the snow machines became popular a few years back. In the subalpine game management units, S400 to S446, it will be illegal to use a snow vehicle for hunting between midnight and noon. It's also unlawful to discharge a firearm at any wildlife from a point within 50 yards of a snow vehicle; The fish and wildlife branch feels that these changes should bring some quality back into hunting during the early hours and will considerably reduce the harrassment of wildlife. The use of snow vehicles after noon of each hunting day will allow hunters enough time to move game out or to change camp sites. In other changes in the hunting regulations, cougars are now defined as big game animals, and may be hunted only by those persons holding valid elk licences and tags. One cougar per hunter allowed. The time for the hunting of cougar with dogs has been reduced. The season will be open Jan. 1 to Jan. 31, 1971. Compulsory checking of grizzly bear taken under licences will be introduced for the spring bear season. Hunters will be required to report the taking of any grizzly bear to the fish and wildlife division and submit the skull for examination. A new hunting zone has been created around the more heavily pqpulated areas surrounding Edmonton city. To be known as Zone 16, the new zone will be restricted to the use of shotguns and bow and arrows. And for the first time this year, archers will be required to purchase an archery licence to hunt with bow and arrows. Cost is $S. Complete hunting regulation summaries are now available from fish and wildlife offices throughout the province. THE COLORADO department of natural resources says it is safer to go hunting in that state than it is to take a bath. The department reports that six persons died from accidents last year, while seven died from bath tub falls. Haven't any statistics for Alberta. The Southern Alberta Fish and Game Council (Zone 1, Alberta Fish and Game Association) will hold its mid-summer meeting in the Lethbridge Fish and Game clubrooms on Sunday starting at 1:30 p.m. ? ? ? TYRELL'S LAKE was lest netted about two weeks by regional fisheries biologist Gordon Haugen. Only 50 yards of net was used. Some 129 trout were pulled out in one haul. They measured in size from one to nine inches, with the average being seven inches. Most encouraging, according to Gordon. By late September or early October many of the rainbows should be nudging the 10 to 12-inch mark and weigh nearly a pound. Tyrrell's was a project of the Tyrrell's Lake Fishermen's Association this spring. One million two hundred and fifty thousand rainbow fingerlings were purchased from the Jumping Rainbow Ranch in Montana and stocked in the lake. Through the efforts of Taber-Warner MLA Doug Miller, a dollar for dollar matching grant was worked out with Land and Forest Minister Dr. J. Donovan Ross and Provincial Treasurer A. O. Aal-borg. The association raised $14,000 and last week the government came through with its $14,000. A special thank you to Messers Miller, Ross and Aalborg. Tyrrell's should be one of the hottest fishing spots in the province next year. Taylor Tore Knee Cartilage the first four events, which again begin at 10. All events will be concluded, with champions decided, by six. Wednesday sees the beginning of the equestrian, diving, horseshoes and ladies slow pitch. The hor'seshoes and ladies slow pitch will end up Wednesday making way for th� men's slow pitch Thursday and the diving and equestrian finals the same day. According to Gibb, some 100 officials will be on hand to judge and officiate at the games. It will indeed be a history-making event. ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES AMERICAN LEAGUE East Baltimore ...
