Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 1945 ON A wtth LOBIMEK FENWICK FORMER WORLD CHAMP DEAD We didn't do much over the! weekend except, toddle to Waterton where we basked like a playf ui nsn for three very delightful days. The only exercise we got. except for the Mart Kennev oance on sjatur- day night, was "in the match we played with "Byron" Holt in the Eaton-Herald tournament which was played over the sporty course Sundav afternoon. We are not going to "give Byron any satis- faction so we won't again mention _, At any rate the Herald managed to sneak out a win over the Eaton mob and were awarded the trophy alter all the bickering was over Upstanding for the paper- boys was Editor Long, who fought, a gallant but losing fight against, Manager Davis. Both, however, re- covered in time to give vent to a couple of very snappy speeches. In case vou intend visiting Water- ton this summer we might tell you ihat the golf course is in excellent shape. Although only nine holes are now being used we were given to understand that the new outside nine will be ready for use by July 1 and that all the holes will have grass greens. Next year they, hope to put grass greens on the inside nine. f f We also noticed that the tennis courts are ia excellent shape and that there are more riding horses tnan ever padding through the towusite. The lake fishermen re- port that the big ones are biting ES keenly as ever; in face two nine- teen pounders were hauled in the other day by a party headed by A. G Baalim! So vou can see that no matter what your interests in sports you can find something to co in Wattrton.
