Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ily IIOXK G1III! l News Spi'vicr TABEll James J. Lynn of Vaushiill, supporter of scouting and a cyclist, headed the pack of IMfi podal-pushcrs in Ihe recent 22-mile cyclalhon spon.sorcd liy tlie l''latlands Dis- trict, Boy Scouts. T h e course was from Vaux- hall to tlie community centre at Taller here refreshments were provided for the partici- pants, most of whom completed tlie run. Starting with the fl a.m. gun, Father Lynn completed the 22- miles in mimiles flat. He said that the stiff westerly breeze slowed the pace during the last half of the course. Ho was clocked at 20 miles per hour early in the event. First Boy Scout in at the fin- ish line, following Father Lynn by 10 minutes, was Calvin Pyrch of the Fifth Taber Troop, followed by Ken Bourassa in two minutes. F a t h e r Lynn said he was challenged at 4 a.m. to make the trip, and after checking in at a.m. lie "went across the street to the rectory to get a free breakfast." Perhaps the honors of the day go to an unnamed tricyclist from Hays who pushed the three-wheeler the full 22 miles. No estimate of the amount of. money raised through individ- ual sponsorship has been made, bill, the approximate total mileage should bring to the dis- trict coffers a few thousand dol- lars. The next cycling event under district sponsorship will be a Cub bicjcie rodeo to be held Friday evening, June 2, at tho Tahcr LDS Stake parking lot. The same evening the Cubs will join Scouts at Scout Island for a council fire hi connection with their two-day camporee.
