I must admit, however, that what I saw has left me more than jusl slightly envious. The people of Medicine Hat. while I hey don't ap- pear to have a contender this year, certainly ('o not have to lake a hack seat to anyone in rink accommo- dation. Medicine Hallers must Feel proud every chance Ihey gel to show off their new Arena Convention Centre. It is truly a credit lo those responsible for building il. It is hard In imagine that a city Ihe size of Medicine under 28.000 in sport such a facility and the best Lethbridge can do are three communiiy rinks. A feasibility study is currently under way here to arrive at an answer lo the question do we need an arena complex'.' And if it is decided we do where would be the best site of such a building1 liow many seals would be necessary1' Look no further than Ihe Gas Cily gentlemen, and you'll sec a perfect blueprint for a rink and complex for Lefhhridgc. The Medicine Hal rink seats jusl under standing room for another 1.200 or so. They have one section can he used for future expansion, a situation they must face in the not too distant future if Tuesday evening was any indication. There wasn't an empty scat in the place and there isn't a bad one in the place. There are no pillars blocking thn fans1 view and exits are so plentiful that there is no such thing as a congestion problem. A miniature Maple Leaf Garden is the way one Lcthbridge visitor described il right down lo the or- gan playing "Three Blind Mice'1 on any calls that upset the local supporters. If there is one area where improvements could be made al the 'Mat it would be the concession stands. But. then, only of us who think of our stom- achs would notice that. in Lclhbridge, will have a new rink in the next two years. II has lo come, not just for hockey bul n building wilb seats for 5.500 or li.OOO people where one could go lo watch Ihc Ice Capadcs, see a circus, attend a rock festival or a political rally. knows hou- many uses a rink such as this could have until it is built" I'm tired of hearing, "Let's prove we need one before go ahead and build one." The lime is now and Ihe need is there. Like Medicine Hat, let's build ourselves an arena to be proud of. 1 would bet money we wouldn't be sorry for it. As far as the giime was concerned I thought the Pats were the belter club. The final score read (i-5 .srtllo the .straight knockout playdown.

A busload of locals made the trip to Lelh- bridge's Earl Ingarfield put the Pats through their trio of markers within one min- ute and seconds in the sec- ond period. Talbol chipped him out for the victory. Meanwhile Doug Wyalt's un- paces and were pleased with what they saw. The gnme was fnsl wilh lols of action. The Pats are a little more polished than the Tigers. The (las City club puts a great deal of emphasis on offence with little regard for defence, and it cost them the game. The support of Ihe Tigers by Ihe Medicine Hat, fans reminds one of the old Medicine Hat Lcthbridgc Native .Sons days- It certainly would be nice lo be a part of il here in Lelhbridgc. il?
