The Lakers along with a few board of directors are headed for New Bruns- wick to compete in the 1973 Canadian senior baseball cham- pionships which get under way Thursday and conclude Sunday. A Dumber of Laker couldn't make the trip wished the Alberta rep- resentatives luck early this morning as they boarded a a.m. chartered bus to Calgary. From the Lakers wfere scheduled fly directly to Montreal on a a.m. flight they would continue their journey to Edmunston for the championships via bus. Eleven clubs reoresenting 10 provinces will' participats in the four-day event which ras been divided into two divisions of round-robin-play. The province of New Brunswick was award- ed two entries into the cham- pionships due to their hosting of the series. Division A will feature teams from Prince Edward Nova Alberta and the host Edmun- ston while Division B will in- clude clubs from New British Newfoundland and Saskatche- wan. The top two teams in each division after the round-robin series will then advance to a sudden-death semi-final match which would lead the winners to a sudden-dsath championship final. The semi-final encounters have been scheduled so that the winners of the A division will face the runners-up in the B division and the winners of the B division will consequently meet the second place finishers in the A division. The Lakers will open their bid for the national crown Thursday with a match against Manitoba at 9 a.m. and another encounter against Ed- munston at 6 p.m. They'll see action again twice Friday with a match against at 9 a.m. and a 3 p.m. tilt against Nova Scotia.

The annual event will be staged from August 30 to Sep- tember 3 and will feature teams from Washing- Alberta and the host British Columbia. The Lakers chosen Ly Woro- betz include Rod Rob Howie Heggedal and Mar- ty Maxwell. Taylor and Roy had earlier been chosen to try-out for the Canadian national team which will participate in the world championships in September.
