The three got together Friday night for a quiet trip back before tonight's gala affair. Bruchet night is all set By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Nostalgia? A trip down memory lane? Call it what you may, tonight's "Ed Bruchet Appreciation Night" will be all of that and more. As Bruchet himself said Friday night "I hope I can stand up to all of this." All of this is shaping up to be a gathering in the neighborhood of 700 former players, opponents and friends. Some of the players who never even made an Ed Bruchet Native Son hockey team will be on hand to honor the man who gave 40 years of his life to hockey and some say part-time to the CPR. Bruchet retired from the railroad and is currently the general manager of the Albu- querque Convention Centre, home of the Albuquerque Six Shooters of the Central Hockey League. Among the cards, letters and telegrams of congratulation the dinner committee has received, is one from the governor of the state of New Mexico. Bruchet has been in New Mexico but a year. He has, however, already left his mark. Sharing the head table with Pats, Centennials roll right along Southern Alberta Juvenile League PLAYOFF HOCKEY (2nd Game of Beat of 3 Seriea) Leth.

A good many names have been left out of this story simply because there are far too many to mention. And besides, the night belongs to Ed Bruchet. Proceedings will conclude Sunday afternoon as Bruchet and a number of the guests will take in the final game of the year for the Lethbridge Longhorns of the Alberta Ju- nior Hockey League. Longhorns meet Calgary Canucks and it is expected Bruchet will drop the first puck. LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. Lomr 7th SlrMl Shopping Mall Lethbridge, Alberta Phont (403) 326-7411 S.C.M.
