Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 TH8 ItTHBRIDG! HMALO JO, 1972 _ SULLY SAYS 1 -By Pat Sullivanm Ell rPHE THIRD ANNUAL Southern Alberta Summer Games a r e set for Bow Island August 2 5 and already the excitement pot is boiling. Del Cleland, the regional director of recreation for Bow Island and on who's shoulders the show will rest, indicates the people of Bow Island are champing at the bit to gel tilings started. From the enthusiasm a recent letter from Cleland, his biggest problem may be in keeping the people in line until Games time. For those you not familiar with the they started two years ago in Pincher Creek. A brain- child of Max Gibb and the Alberta Department of Youth, the Games, to date, have catered to over southern Alberta athletes. The Games are for those people who otherwise would not get a chance to compete on a large scale. No provincial or dominion champions are allowed to take part in the Games. They are opened strictly for the amateur in the line sense of the word. In its initial year the Games were made up of eight sports. There was track and field, swimming, diving, equestrian, small bore, trapshooting, horse- shoes and slow pitch. Last year, with Claresholm as the hosts, archery and tennis were added and found instant popularity. Bow Island, in this their Diamond Jubilee Year, have added special golf. There is no limit on age or number of competi- tors. The Games are the end result of competition on a regional level with eliminations deciding who takes part in the Games. A total of 10 regions will be represented at the Games this year. Heading the list will be the Muni- cipal District of Taber, the actual host region, the districts of Cardston, Willow Creek and Pincher Creek, Crowsnest Pass, Blood and Peigan Reserves, the counties of Lethbridge, Warner and Forty-Mile and the City of Lethbridge. Local residents of Bow Island are making a solid effort to entertain southern Albertans in a bigger and better way than ever. All facilities are being expanded and improved upon in preparation for the upcoming events. It is expected a number of federal, provincial and municipal government dignitaries will be on hand. A special invitation has gone out to several sports and recreation celebrities. The Town of Bow Island is going all out in an effort to put on the biggest show of all. They have their work cut out for them. I'm looking forward to the Games and I'm just one of Some others who are also looking forward to the event.

Eagleson eekiiig guarantee MONTREAL (CP) Alan iagleson, a Toronto lawyer, said today he will seek guaran- tees from National Hockey League clubs that several lop choices in Thursday's amateur draft be given the opportunity to play in the NHL this season. Eagleson was referring to the fact that two of Montreal Cana- diens' first-round picks, left winger Steve Shull from the On- tario Hockey Association To- ronto Marlboros and linemate Dave Gardner, could wind up with Nova Scotia Voyageurs of the American Hockey League, the top farm club of the Cana- diens. Eagleson said that the first three picks in the draft, Billy Harris from the Marlboros, Jacques Richard from Quebec Remparts and Don Lever from Niagara Falls Flyers, were as- sured major league positions he- cause they were drafted by tal- ent-hungry NHL learns. Harris, Richard and Lever were chosen by New York Is- landers, Atlanta Flames and Vancouver Canucks. "Jim Schoemfeld will play in the NHL this season because he was picked by Buffalo Sabres and so ,vill Billy Barber with Eagleson said. "But George Ferguson who was picked from the Marlboros by Toronto in the first round could end up in Tulsa."
