Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta October 31. 1974 THE LETHP.RIDOE HERALD 25 Sportsplex ranks with the best in country .By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Ed Chynoweth, president of the Western Canada Hockey League, best described the Canada Winter Games Sportsplex by saying it was one of the finest facilities In Western Canada. For that matter, he added, it just has to rate with the best in Canada. Chynoweth didn't have to sell Lethbridge and Southern Alberta on the new building, it sells itself. Chynoweth simply was congratulating us and why not. The Sportsplex, whose major tenant is the Lethbridge Broncos of the NEW LIGHTS WILL SOLVE SOME PARKING LOT PROBLEMS same WCHL, is indee'd an excellent facility. There's only one better in the west and that's the Coliseum in Vancouver. But the only real difference between it and the Sportsplex is seating capacity. Both arenas were built and designed by the same architects. The Coliseum will hold people while the Sportsplex has seating for just over But other than that, they are quite similar. Lethbridge's Sportsplex is a multi purpose building. Aside from hockey and ice shows, it can play host to a variety of other things. Musical productions are being booked at the Sportsplex simply because it has one of the most up to date acoustical system in Canada. In its first year the Sportsplex will have accomodated the Harlem Globetrotters, the Ice Capades, Disney on Parade, an Arabian horse show and many other attractions. The Sportsplex itself con- tains eight dressing rooms, a self contained kitchen, facilities for a rifle range and four handball courts. Located on the east side of the Sportsplex is an out- door speedskating oval. There are only two in North America, the one here and another in Aspen, Colorado. In time, the Sportsplex will have seats with standing room available for another It was a long time com- ing, but Southern Alberta can be very justly proud of one of the best ice facilities in Canada.
