what it looks like from the driver's seat of a chuckwagen Insert is Tom Dorchester Herald staffers take ride By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer Visions oi the greats of the chuckwagon world were conjured up yesterday Dorchester Vigen, Glass Cosgrave Flett Allison and Groenen Allison and Groenen9 Well for 10 minutes Wednesday Herald photographer Bill Groenen and myself were a lot closer to becoming chuckwagon drivers than we ever were before We were both hanging on precariously and peering over the shoulders of a true wagon immortal Tom Dorchester From the tying on of the canvas through the harness ing of the four spirited Thoroughbreds, Boxer Rebellion and Kattella the leaders, and Prince Bold and Quill's Charm, the wheelers, and on through the run to the leaving of the track, the blood of chuckwagoners over the ages raced through our body Armed with the expert advice imparted by Tom (to ride out a roll-over as long as possible and to jump free only at the last moment making sure our feet weren t tangled up) we headed for the track with a somewhat shaky sense of security To add to our confidence Tom related the tale of an unfortunate TV cameraman he took out once who fell down and completed the ride bouncing around in the back of the wagon It was intriguing to note the reaction of the horses and how their attitudes changed as they were headed for the starting barrels When we left the barns the horses, head down, plodd- ed deliberately on ahead uncaring about their surroun- dings But once on the track their heads came up and their gait quickened When rounding the final turn in front of the grand- stand filled with cheering thousands in our over-active imaginations the four horses started bouncing and straining at the reins gripped tightly in the experienc- ed hands of their driver Though there was only one barrel in the infield we saw two and heard the clatter of the stove the report of the starter s gun and the roar of the crowd Aw, what a wonderful thing imagination is We rounded that barrel as only Tom Dorchester rounds barrels, at full tilt Tom guided the rig around the barrel with ease while I clung tightly to the seat with one hand and held Bill by the belt with the other as he leaned out for a better angle for a picture We roared onto the track and into'the first turn, our hearts pounding, rivaled only by the wagon's creaking, the horses's hooves and the knocking of our knees Too soon Tom braced himself against the pull of the Thoroughbreds feet secured in the two front corners of the driver s box, and brought the willing to run forever horses to a slower pace Our interlopement into the forbidden world of one of the chuckwagon world's greatest driver's was over Tom sensing our apprehension at charging all-out down the back stretch slowed his charges, neatly turned them around at mid-track and guided them out the rear gate Whenever we watch the wagons run, which they will do here Fndav and Saturday, both Bill and I will be one up on the average spectator we experienced the thrill and excitement of one of the world's most dangerous sports chuckwagon racing Same old story for Riders THE CANADIAN PRESS While Saskatchewan Rough- riders were relying on veterans Ron Lancaster and George Reed for a 10-8 victory Wednesday night over Calgary Stampeders, Winnipeg Blue Bombers had something a lit- tle bit special The Bombers got a big break in the final moments of the game and turned it into a touchdown for an 18-13 win over Toronto Argonauts, their first victory of the Canadian Football League season after three losses I didn't even know it was a touchdown until thev put the ball down for the extra said Winnipeg quarterback Don Jonas I thought we'd just got the one point The wild finish capping a generally lacklustre game be fore fans in Winnipeg, began when the Argos had SALESMEN OF THE MONTH BRIAN FRANZ Salesman for June We are pleased to announce that Brian Franz was "Salesman of the Month" for June and Dee
