Plans laid to form Possibilit> recreational group of chamber in Crowsuest NATAL (HNS) A steering committee, representative of recreation commissions in the East Kootenay. met recently in Cranbrook and decided unani- mously to recommend tire for- mation of an East Kootenay Recreation Association. For several years, recreation supporters in the area have been holding twice-annual con- ferences but have never form- ed a recognized group. At the fall recreation confer- ence in Canal Flats, a steering committee was appointed to bring in a report on the ad- vantages and disadvantages of forming an association for the East Kootenays. On the com- mittee are Mrs. Enid Ander- son, Cranbrook; John Nugent, Canal Flats; Mrs. Esther Rif- fel, Fernie; Struan Robertson, Kimberley; Jack Reid, Kim- berley; Al Collier, Nelson. The committee agreed that the purpose of such an as- sociation is to promote and co- ordinate the interests of rec- reation in the East Kootenay. Among its objectives are en- couraging ar.d promoting high- er standards of competence, conduct and service in the field of recreation; developing and maintaining channels for the exchange and discussion of ideas, methods and techniques in recreation; and to stimulate and foster necessary legisla- tion in support of recreation. The steering committee will present its report and a sug- gested constitution and bylaws at the spring conference in April 3, 1971. Should the conference approve the for- mation of an association, offi- cers will be elected im- mediately.

Kehoe, airways inspector, both of Edmonton. The policy provides that the applicant provide suitable land for the runway and approach- es, and be prepared to assume responsibility for operation and maintenance of the air- port. The ministry will make the necessary survey-, cost: and feasibility studies, and make necessary recommendations to Ottawa. Depending on the results of the studies, approval will be on the basis of a certain alloca- tion of funds for the project which may include the landing strip, taxi and parking strips, and where qualified lighting for night use. MOT officials had earlier in- spected the proposed site ad- jacent to the paved road to Ta- ber Provincial Park and found good possibilities for a landing strip.
