The Lethbridge Trap Club will hold their annual meeting at the Trap Club house on Sunday, February 23 at SHARP. All Trap Shooters, or anyone interested in this sport are asked to attend. This is the time to come out and see what has hap- pened In the past, and get your word in as to what you would like to have in 1975. Don't leave it up to the other guy get involved your- self see you at the club Sunday The first shoot of the season at Lethbridge will be the Alberta 5 man Team Shoot. This is a lot of fun, ao try to get 5 guys together and put a team in. This shoot consists of 200 targets per man team total of 1000. A Calgary team has won this event every year since 1968 that it quite a record; some- one down here should try to beat this Calgary team. Thai's what competition is all aboutl Skeet Shooters The Lelhbrldge Fish and Game Range has a very good Skeet Range that was used very little last season. Possibly the Skeet Shooters in Southern Alberta should try to form a club within The Fish and Game, similar to the revolver club. I know that there is a large number of Skeet Shooters in the area that would like to shoot fairly regularly. Anyone who is interested In Skeet Shooters could leave their name at Plainsman and we'll see what we can do.

KINKOTKA1 101 HOlii i DON MARINO ART lOUttHI Sabres still looking for win By THE CANADIAN PRESS Buffalo Sabres outshot Philadelphia Flyers 41-24, scored more goals against Flyers' netminder Bernie Parent than anyone else has in two seasons, and still wound up with a 6-6 tie in a National Hockey League game Thursday. In the only other NHL game Thursday, Guy Lapoinle's two goals and Pete Mahovlich's three assists helped Montreal SHIG NAKAGAWA, ROD ARNDT FRONT RICK HILLMER, KEN HILLMER BACK Shig Nakagawa upsets Lennon Slug Nakagawa of Magrath, built up an .84 lead after six ends Thursday and went on to register an upset win in the first event of the annual Unifarm Bonspiel. Nakagawa faced Jocko Tar- nava of Wrentham in the final and trimmed the Wrentham foursome skipped by Lawrence Lennon. With Nakagawa were third Rod Arndt, and Rick and Ken Hillmer. Heading into the final of the four day event Nakagawa had an unbeaten mark of four wins while Tarnava had also enjoyed four straight wins with Lennon calling the shots. Nakagawa led by two after five ends and then sole twp on the sixth to put the game away from the favored Tarnava quartet. On his way to the primary title in the 23rd annual affair, Nakagawa opened with a first draw win over Miro Tomasta of Readymade and then came right back to upend Ron Neher of Newlands and Tony Post- man, also of Newlands. His win over Postman earn- ed Nakagawa a berth in the semi-final where he sidelined Charlie Brantner of Wrentham. Tarnava, on the other hand, got out of the gate with a vic- tory over Warner's Terry Nelson, added wins against Hal Culler also of Warner and Bruce Eliason of Wrentham before meeting Nick Wolfe of Wilson in the semi-final. Garth Nilsson of Wrentham had an easy time of it in his final for the silverware in the. number two event as he ousted Nelson in five ends. In the semi-finals of number two Nilsson won out over John Panczak of Magrath while Kodiaks win 79-70 CALGARY (Special) The Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks shook off the effects of a two-week layoff Wednesday night as they edg- ed Mount Royal College Cougars 79-70. Greg Hess led the Kodiaks in the regularly-scheduled Alberta College Athletic Conference game with 23 points while Glen Schuler add- ed 15. Stu Bauck was tops for the Cougars with 21 points. In the women's game, the Cougarettes from Mount Royal jumped out to a 28-22 halftime lead and went on to dump the Kodiettes 57-45. Shirley Yuill topped the Kodiette scoring with 10 points: Nelson defeated Ted Rudd of Foremost. Lloyd Brantner of Wrentham won the number three event. After .stopping Culler in the semi-finals he came right back to down Tomasta in the final. Tomasta reached the final with a win over Neher in the semi's. In the fourth and final event Owen Coaker of Wilson cap- tured top honors over Min Yoshida of Iron Springs. In the semi-finals Coaker bested Tom Fukami of Newlands while Yoshida was the victor in a match with Bruce Eliason of Wrentham. MacDonald closes in on crown CALGARY (CP) In an era when championship curl- ing matches take longer and longer to play, Dr. Wendell MacDonald of Charlottetown is a refreshing change. The 1971 Canadian Senior Men's champion, who is one victory away from a second ti- tle today, wastes no time de- ciding upon and executing his shots and his haste hasn't hurt his successs this week. He's made most of the key shots. A brillant example was in the sixth end of round 12 Thursday night as MacDonald labored to maintain his first place edge over Saskatchewan and New Brunswick in the 197512-team championship. Leading 8-3 against Herb Taylor's Territories rink, which was riding a four-game winning streak, MacDonald faced five Taylor counters as he surveyed his last shot. It took him all of 30 seconds to signify a draw between guards, something of a risky shot the way the ice had been running. But he executed the draw perfectly to a bite of the four-foot, scored one and kill- ed the last hope of a Yukon rally. The 15-6 victory, MacDonald's second of the day, gave him an 8-2 record heading into the final round at 11 a.m. EST today against Manitoba's Lyle Henry of Winnipeg. Manitoba is out of contention with a 6-4 record but Henry is a performer capabable of at least delaying MacDonald from winning the championship. A Manitoba victory would likely force a sudden-death playoff involving two or three rinks, depending on the out- come of Saskatchewan's final round match against Nova Scotia and New Brunswick's game with Alberta. Morrie Thompson of Saska- toon and Ken Melvin of Saint John were 7-3 and Thompson, particularly, was gunning for another shot at the Islanders because he was responsible for one of their defeats. Melvin was beaten by P.E.I, in an earlier match. Canadiens beat Kansas City Scouts 6-3. "Everybody has somebody's number once in a said Fred Shero, coach of the Flyers, who have not lost to the Sabres since March games ago. The Flyers have won 12 of those games. "Actually, the Sabres play very well against us, even when we've beaten them by bigger said Shero. "When you play Buffalo, you know you're in a hockey game." Buffalo coach Floyd Smith said: "At least we finally got ahead of them." The Sabres got ahead of the Summaries PHILADELPHIA 6 BUFFALO 6 First Period: 1. Buffalo. Robert 35 (Perreaull.

Flyers four times, at 2-0, 3-2, 5-3 and 6-5, as both Parent and Sabres goalie Gary Bromley had problems. "It wasn't a goaltenders' night on either Smith said. Rene Robert opened the scoring on a first-period power play and Buffalo's Craig Ramsay scored to make it 2-0 after less than four minutes of play. Bill Clement scored on a two-on-one break at and Bobby Clarke scored the first of his two for the night at when two Buffalo defencemen were looking for their sticks. Rick Martin opened the sec- ond period with a shot from beyond the blue line to make it 3-2 for Buffalo, but Gary Dornhoefer got the Flyers even once against at with a shot off the post. Bill Hajt and Danny Gare put the Sabres up by two once again, but Clarke and Ross Lonsberry made it 5-5 within two minutes of Gare's shot. Brian Spencer put the Sabres up for the last time, 6- 5, early in the third period but Reggie Leach got the final ty- ing goal for the Flyers. At times, it looked as if the Sabres were going to turn Smith into a prophet. "It's in the he told Sabres' gen- eral manager Punch Imlach before the game. "Just make sure the bag's Imlach replied. At Kansas City, Lapointe's two goals, his 21st and 22nd of the season, put him four points past his best previous season points total. The Canadiens defenceman now has 58 points. His best until this year was 19 goals, 35 assists and 54 points in 1972-73. Mahovlich, too, carried his personal record season total to 90 points on 28 goals and 62 assists Last season, the Montreal centre had a per- sonal high of 36 goals and 37 assists for 73 points. Mahovlich's assists came on goals by Larry Robinson, Steve Shutt and Lapointe as the Canadiens built a 6-0 lead in the first two periods before the Scouts rallied late in the third period. A BOARD MEETING IN KANSAS CITY Cougars triumph, wins have been few Renner's lead 10 By CHUCK SVOBODA The Canadian Press Chicago Cougars scored the fourth victory in their last 17 games Thursday night and player-coach-owner Pat Stapleton sounded like a man who had just chased a wolf away from his door but ex- pected it to return any minute. "We've been playing a little better lately and tonight was an exceptionally good game for said Stapleton whose Cougars beat the Toros 4-3 in overtime at Toronto. "Our biggest problem of late has been the cutting down of goals against. We seem to have enough offence. That's not a problem. Our game plan is to set out and play a defen- sive style of game but we end up with the puck in our net more often than not." But then Stapleton had to admit that the Cougars' offence had been stumbling, too. "Of course we didn't get the offensive breaks tonight. We hit five posts and if we'd scored on, any of those we wouldn't have needed over- time to win." The Cougars are in third place in the World Hockey As- sociation East Division but In other WHA games Thurs- day, Baltimore Blades beat Vancouver Blazers 4-3, the Blades' first home ice victory since moving from Detroit last month, and San Diego Mariners beat Quebec Nordi- ques 5-2. Chicago took a 2-1 lead in the first period and extended it to 3-1 early in the second period before Toronto's Tony Featherstone reduced the margin with a goal midway in the second period. Toros centre Vaclav Nedomansky's 30th goal of the season late in the third period tied the score and forced the overtime in which Rosaire Paiement scored the winner- Gene Peacosh scored two goals and assisted on another to lead San Diego against Quebec. It was Quebec's third loss in COMEBACK WIN Two goals each by Jess Brooks and Dan Stevens led the way as Oliver came back from an early 1-0 deficit to whip York Hotel 7-1 in Lethbridge Industrial Hockey League action.
