TABER (HNS) - A bid to have the 1973 Southern Alberta Summer Games held at Taber was approved Tuesday by the Taber Recreation Board, and will be referred to the Taber Regional Recreation Council for implementation. The decision to request the 1973 games came following a discussion on the possibility of holding the games here next year. The recreation board felt that, though the recreation complex is ideally suited for the program, the present lack of tennis courts and track facilities demanded a year de-ferrment. The board was advised by program director Miss Yvonne Mclvor that the Taber District stood only sixth out of eight districts at the Games at Claresholm this year, though the 35 medals showed proficiency in female swimming, slow pitch and archery. The local board also authorized Miss Mclvor to attend a field 'hockey clinic at Calgary later this month, held under the sponsorship of the department of youth. A report covering swimming pool revenue showed total receipts at $7,063.79 for the year as compared with $6,512.74 for last year, the increase due, at least in part, to the favorable weather conditions. Swimming lessons accounted for $1,690, season tickets $2,022 single admissions $3,232.29 and pool rental $119.50.

TABER (HNS) - Ice in the arena by the Oct. 1, weekend is scheduled by the recreation board, conditional on completion of minor repairs to a refrigerator pumping unit assured by the equipment suppliers. The community centre will become a hive of activity after that date, with minor hockey recently organized for the winter months and curling the chief interest of other enthusiasts. A report tabled at the recreation board meeting Tuesday covered a donation of $500 from the minor hockey association, of which $250 went toward the installation of a trophy case and the balance toward purchase of cutlery and dishes for the centre kitchen, most of which has been received. The board authorized a cost estimation for installing flood lighting for the lobby trophy case. Minor hockey has made an appeal to the public for hockey equipment not being used, including uniforms and playing equipment, which might be made available for youngsters who cannot afford to purchase same. The board took under consideration a request from the Greg Pilling Hockey School for ice time for two weeks the latter half of July, 1972. The board felt that the short mid-summer time ice would be required would make the project uneco- nomical for either the school or the recreation board, and possibly both. However, no decision was reached. Three applications for the vacant seat on the recreation board, occasioned by the departure from Taber of Mrs. Elaine Karras, were reviewed by the board and a recommendation is being made to the town council for appointment. Finally, approval was given to setting up a program for senior citizens in one of the auditorium balcony rooms, to which an open invitation to the older people of town and district will be extended.
