It was given to him by noted sportsman Alva Bair of Milk River. Made by Mr. Bair, it is 4Vi feet long. - Geoff Tagg Photo By GEOFF TAGG Special Correspondent FOREMOST - The Foremost Fish and Game Association's 14th annual banquet and dance held at Foremost Community Hall honored the overall grand champion, Edward Walsh, whose antelope scored 07.5. Almost 250 people were on hand. A special presentation was made to fish and wildlife officer Tom Bateman by well-known hunter Alva Bair. He was presented with a knife made by Mr. Bair. While the two were on a fishing and hunting expedition in the Hudson Bay area, Alva agreed to catch the fish while Tom did the cooking. The arrangement went fine until they caught a whale, whereupon Tom's enthusiasm for cutting and cleaning rapidly waned. Association president Ralph Shaffer paid tribute to the service of the retiring executive. Mr. Shaffer reported the major item had been the development of land purchased for a rifle range northwest of Foremost and the planting of 8,000 trees there. Also reported was progress regarding the stocking of a part of the Milk River area bordering on Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park with wild turkeys. The 1970 grand champion is Ralph Cervo whose cougar scored 97.08 per cent. His championship trophy was donated by Cole Farm Equipment. Master of ceremonies Ken Kultgen introduced the head table guests. Among those present were past-president and banquet chairman Roy Ondrik and his wife Grace; Mayor of Foremost Reinhold Karl with wife Isabel; and Bill Biesterfeldt, chairman of the upland and migratory birds committee, with his wife Violet. , President Ralph Shaffer was accompanied by wife Carol; Madeline Kultgen, wife of the master of ceremonies was a head table guest, as were Floyd Simpson, Russel and Emma Dixson, Larry and Shirley Wolfe, Tom and Bonnie Bateman, Bill and Evelyn McDonald and Dave Simpson and Audrey Simpson. A service award was presented by Ralph Shaffer to Roy Ondrik for his "outstanding service" to the Foremost Club. Tom Bateman said he was satisfied that despite various disagreements they were all working towards common goals, particularly that of perpetuating all species of wild- life in their natural state. "In this day of technological progress," said Mr. Bateman, "the full co-operation of all of us will be required if we are going to realize our objectives for file wildlife and fisheries." Mr. Bateman paid tribute to the late George Ross, "a very dedicated conservationist. His trade was cattle, but his main interest was human nature." The annual liars' competi-ion was won this year by Gerald Edlund. Roy Hadlington and Mayor Karl were judges. Trophies and awards: GRAND CHALLENGE Typical white tail deer-Bill King, 153.1.
