 Provincial Library,  Victoria,/ B. C.  The  Printed and Published at Gibsons, B.C.  10c per copy  Volume 28, Number 35, September 17, 1975.  IMPROVED PRESSURE  Village water program  aims at gradual expansion  Area equipped to handle oil spills  The Gibsons municipal .waterworks program is graduallv  bringing-the water system in  line with the population and  building developments of the  village. The overall philosophy  of council's water committee,  headed by Aid. Kurt Hoehne.  facilitates a gradual increase  of water storage capacity and  a gradual expansion of the distribution system without forcing the village into any further deficit.  Reports indicate the maior  water source on Gower Point  Road contains an adequate supply for present and immediate  future demands arid a new  source located in another part  of the village will ensure a  water supply for some time to  come.  The original water supply  dates back to the one used by  the old cannery which had a  capacity of only 500,000 gallons. YDwo wells located close  to the present resource are considered no longer usable because of shallowness and outdated casings that would cost  more money to bring up to  standards than their water supply would justify.  Space for  Opportunity knocks for iar-  tists.  During the fall and winter  months Whitaker House in Sechelt is offering the use of  two upstairs rooms to artists  wishing to have shows.     '  The only charge will be the  usual 20 percent commission on  any sales. Another small room  is available for lapidary work.  Interested parties' are asked to  phone 885-2080. ~    Y  ' The new water supply was  recently discovered near Kinsmen park and according to experts it will probably supply  the village adequately for the  future. The village already has  plans to situate a well and  pump at that site if further  drilling proves this feasible.  In conjunction with water resource development - attention  has also been given to increasing storage capacities of reservoirs with the aim of provid  ing greater pressure and thus  alleviating one of the village's  major water problems of the  past. The water level in the  larger of the two reservoirs at  the end of Reed Road was raised this summer on the recommendations of an earlier water  study conducted by the engineering firm of Dayton and  Knight. A good example of the  inadequacies of both these reservoirs came to light during  the Elphinstone school fire in  1973 when fire,hydrants contained little pressure while  reservoirs were overflowing  and pouring water into the  ditch. The small reservoir with  a capacity of 500,000 gallons  was eliminated _ from the system this summer and will be  used only for emergency purposes. The water level in tlie  large reservoir has been raised  two feet which increases the  water pressure by 1^p pounds  "per; squaire inch.. This step Has  raised-7thecapacity of the reservoir by 50 percent to 1%  million gallons. The water level  will be raised another two feet  in the future tb house two million gallons providing further  pressure for the top part of the  village. Further.storage tanks  are located on School Road  which supply water for part of  the lower village.  One of the major problems  in the development of a water  system for this village is its  (Continued on Page 5)  The  Sunshine  Coast is now.  prepared for an oil spill ��� at  least a small one.  Officials  from   several  ma- -  jor oil companies were in Gibr  sons last week to demonstrate  an "oil-spill package" to local -'  odl' distributors,  industry   and  fire   departments.    The   antipollution ... equipment   was   de-_  veloped and financed by nine  oil companies under the organization of the B.C. Petroleum .  Commission.    The "equipment  will ultimately  be located  in  28  areas throughout the province.  The package that will be located at the Shell Bulk Plant  in Gibsons is one of three < different types and especially de--  siigned for a sheltered coastal  area. It will handle both water  and land spills.  The package, valued at about  $18,000 includes an assortment-  of tools, 500 feet.of flotation  booms for containing spills on  water, a port-a-tank for land  oil spills, and a combustible gas  detector. T$ie portable package can be transported to var- '  ious locations on the Sfunshine  Coast, and will be at the disposal of local governments and  industry.  Les Kach, representing Shell  Oil, said the package was not  designed for a massive oil spill.  Asked if the equipment could  handle a major spill resulting  from one of the larger bulk oil  ships unloading at Hopkins  landing, for instance, he ans-  {A 24 inch floating boom is laid  out   in   Gibsons harbor.

Sechelt School District may  eQ& ^  have  registered.   Denley   said  an e-jra-teacher-would^Tbe^re-  Last year the students complained about sitting three to  a seat on school buses, this  year it's the drivers' turn.  Seating limitations this year  are apparently forcing some  school .buses to carry three  passengers to a seat but drivers are conlcerned that their  licences could be damaged if  children were hurt in an accident.  Apparently RCMP in another  district have stated that three  secondary' students   could  not  be safely and comfortably seated in one seat. School bus seats  are 36 inches wide and safe  and comfortable space is 12  inches for elementary students  and 1'5 inches for secondary  students, according to the Department of Education.  School board Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills also said there  were some problems with late  buses but he felt those problems would be resolved quickly.  teachers this year because o  unexpected high enrollments in  some schools.  In making a report to the  school board last week, Superintendent John Denley said El-  phintone Secondary, Davis Bay  Elementary, Sechelt Elementary, Gibsons Elementary and  Bowen Island require extra  teachers because actual enrolments have turned out to be  higher Jhan estimated enrolments.  Gibsons Elementary, for instance, had a projected enrolment of 455 students and 491  quired and space at the school,  eveij after summer alterations,  would be "tight."  Denley recommended that a  kindergarten class be established in Davis Bay and that  Davis Bay grade four students  and West Sechelt grade four be  moved to Sechelt Elementary.  $100 WINNER  Last week's winner of $100  in the Gibsons Lions 400 Club 3  draw was F. Cavanagh of Vancouver. Ticket was drawn by  Helen Sallis in Gibsons Bank  of Montreal.  One man against the system  Adam McBride is mad.  Adam McBride is mad.  And when Adam is mad he  doesn't sit around and stew.  He goes out and does something about it. That's one of  the reasons Adam and his  wife joined the local consumers organization. Big  Adam is tired of being the  little guy. Of being steamrollered by big -business. Of  being errored to death by  computers. Of being bent,  stapled and mutilated by the  so-iealled efficiencies of our  modern world.  Adam's biggest beef right  now is that he needs an operation on his leg and forces  seemingly greater than himself have conspired otherwise. The whole thing started with a logging accident  in 1971 and because an operation at that time wasn't successful he still suffers from  the accident.  Phlebitis. Arthritis. Can't  bend the leg properly. He's  been back in the bush as a  heavy equipment operator  since the accident, but recently he's had some close calls.  "If my knee locks I'm done.  It's 800 feet over the cliff."  So he can't work, the compensation board makes sure  he has some food on his table  and   the   specialists   say  he  needs an  operation to  save  his leg.  He's admitted into the hospital for the operation, the  doctors tell him the opera- ���  tion will have to be postponed until the raccoon scratches  on said leg heal  (Adam  raises raccoons) and the compensation board subsequently informs him it won't pay  for the operation. Pay for it  yourself they  say.  Yet the  compensation payments continue.    That    indicates    the  board assumes responsibility  for Adam's leg but it won't  pay for the operation which  may  alleviate the  problem.  And Adam would say OK,  I will pay, but he has simultaneously received word from  MSA (<Medical Services Association) that his coverage has  ' been suspended because he  hasn't paid his dues.  Can't be, said Adam. I have  the records here. Haven't  missed a payment in five  years.  Subsequent investigations  reveal that while on his intermittent stints in the woods  his union forced him to contribute to another medical  plan called CU and C. Sign  up, the union says, or you  don't work. Adam signs.  When Adam finishes the  job and comes home he terminates the $5 a month to  CU and C all the.while maintaining his family coverage  with MSA.  (Continued on Page 5)  Group considers CAC  to fight consumer woes  Local consumers again placedpeople  to  solve  some  of  our  high gas prices in the area under the hatchet last week at a  special consumers' group meeting in Gibsons. Recent investigations into this matter by the  group have brought out no  concrete answers.  Joe Kampman, pro-tern chair  man of the group said his investigations revealed the Sunshine Coast was last unloading  point on a set route for-oil  barges and consequently shipping costs were higher.  Kampman said an oil company official told him: "It's  unfortunate your community  happens to be last on the totem pole."  Other investigations by the  group brought forth, the idea  that this area will not have  cheaper gas prices until a cut-  rate gas station establishes itself here. However, such companies have earlier indicated  they would not establish in  this area until a higher volume  of gas sales could be achieved.  One member of the group,  George Matthews, suggested  local merchants should be call  ed on to find out why prices  are high. He said many gas  station owners are hurting because people go to Vancouver  to buy gasoline.  "I  think  we can  use  these  problems," he said.  Jean Douglas, Development  Chairman for the Consumers  Association of Canada was on  hand at last week's meeting  to suggest how the association  could be of assistance to local  consumers.  She explained the aims of  the CAC were to ensure the  consumer had a right to safety,  the right to be informed, the  right to choose, and the right  to be heard;  She said the overall objective of the 110,000 member national group is to educate the  consumer and one of the first  steps in this direction is to  make consumer education compulsory in high schools.  The CAC works closely with  provincial and federal consumers offices because "they are  the legal entities that can enforce the law of the Trade  Practices  Act.  The CAC h^s also established what it calls computer ombudsmen at Simon Fraser University who try to unscramble  computer print-outs for consumers who find themselves,  for instance, with confusing  computer billing situations.

B.C  False idols  We like to think that we live in the era of the common man, that all persons are worthy of equal respect ���  and equal disrespect. But we also live in a time of excessive adulation of certain types of persons ��� or Personalities, with a capital "P", as it is now fashionable to  call them.  Many of those wh.6 receive this adulation are, of  course, persons of authentic distinction. But some are  of questionable distinction. Not all the stars of entertainment and sport are cast in heroic moulds. We sometimes let ourselves be excessively impressed by celebrities who seem to be well-known mainly for being well-  known. And there are those big-shots among us whose  big-shottery is, by the skills of the communications experts magnified all out of proportion.  Our adulations, quite silly though some of them are,  tend to engender in many of us feelings of inadequacy  and even of failure. Very few of us play starring roles  in life. Eminence and greatness ��� as we generally judge  such tihings ��� evade all but a handful of us. We find that  life's selection processes are often capricious and sometimes cruel:  When Bernard Shaw was a drama critic he was impressed by an actor playing a minor role in one act of  a play. In his review Shaw described this actor as "a  great artist in small things." The best that most of us  can hope for is that we may be great artists in small  things ��� and that can be a very good best.  Let us rejoice in the achievements of those who  "make it big" in the things that make life better for all  of us. But let us remember that personal greatness is not  limited to those -who do the big tihings and get the applause and the admiration of the many. Greatness can  also be a quality of those who do unexciting things, routine things, small things which contribute to the good  life for all.  One of the causes  A man ��� we'll call him Harold although that's not  his real name ��� was called one morning to do some work  at the Canadian Forest Products mill at Port Mellon.  Harold operates heavy duty machinery on a freelance basis and this particular morning he went, rather  reluctantly but no one else was available. Anyway he  thought he could use the money.  ��� Harold ended up working three 8 hour shifts in a  row at Port Mellon although he admits during the first  shift all he did was start up the machine, move a steel  beam a few yards, and shut the machine off pending  further instructions.  A few days after Harold's 24 hour exercise he received a cheque in the mail ��� his pay for the three  shifts of /work. It came to $776 plus $32 travelling expense from Gibsons to Port Mellon.  Now let's sit down with Harold's union and talk  about some causes of inflation.

Tenders are being sought  for constructing driveways into  the  new   Elphinstone     sdhool  area.  The action by the central  bank (the Bank of Canada)  increasing the cost of money  will, we are told, result in  first mortgage money of 12*_  percent, with second mortgages  proportionately higher. This  will have the effect of making  home buying for most Canadi:  ans nothing more than wishful  thinking.  It is quite amazing to listen  to the economists explain why  interest rates are rising, or  falling, or standing still. It really does not matter what the  particular situation is, they  have an answer which no matter how you try to understand  it, is just so much doubletalk  The simple faict of the matter  is we live in a society wihich  cannot provide homes for its  people.  Housing is one of the most  elementary human needs and  one would expect that a society  such as ours would have some  answers to this very basic  problem. Even the most primitive cultures have been able to  provide housing for its people  The Eskimo, living in the most  inhospitable region on earth,  wthout benefit of the army of  planners, architects, developers, financiers and other assorted experts, has long ago learned to house himself at a price  he can afford and under conditions he can live and make a  jiving.  Why does housing in Canada  cost almost double what it  does in the U.S.?" Why do we  have such a multiplicity of  building codes, regulations and  restrictions? Are we trying to  prevent the construction, of  homes rather than building  them?  Would our mortgage rate be  a little lower if we were to  forego the disbursement of the  $900 million that Canada is giving in foreign aid this year?  That sum, distributed to Canadians., would buy a feiw lots  and get a few houses built.  Some bind of a blitz on housing is definitely called for and  it may be time to give money  to individuals wanting to bulla  homes and let them co-operate  with neighbors and friends to  get the houses built in a hurry.  Every house that's built means  another satisfied family; another municipal taxpayer; work  and business for the thousands  of suppliers of building materials: and of course more'money  for Ottawa from income and  sales taxes.      *  The cost or a home to the  individual would be cut in half  if he was to build his own  home. It would be a most profitable investment for the person. When completed he would  realize a lot more in actual assets than if he remained at  work and paid all the taxes,  union dues, unempoyment in*  surance,"ahd all the other little  goodies that present day society has come up with to separate a worker from the rewards  of his labor.  A family could easily realize  a paper profit of $25,000 to  $30,000 in one year if they were  to quit work and build a home  of their own.  Listening to federal, provincial and municipal bodies it is  very obvious that there is just  no way they will ever solve  the current housing problem,  so sorr.e other means must be  found. The most basic and the  easiest way, it seems to us, is  to let everyone who wants to  build a house build one. They  msy not all be castles in appearance, but to the mother  who is desperate to find a place  for her kids to run and lead a  normal life, it will truly loe  her most cherished possession  One of the great side benefits of providing houses for the  people is the effect on the social life of Canada. It is an established fact that home owners are for the most part 'solid  citizens' and are not given to  property destruction or other ���  unsocial habits. Most of them  are so busy keeping their  homes in good repair that they  have little time for getting into  trouble.  It can therefore be argued  that, a well housed nation  makes for a better society, and  this, from what everybody tells  us, is the answer to all our  problems.

COPDAND,  Municipal Clerk SPECIAL TRAVEL FEATURE  Coast News, Sept. 17, 1975.     3.  Backpacking into Cathedral Lakes  Enthusiastic Guides: where are the leaders?  About five miles west of Ker  enieos there is a road branching off provincial Highway 3  that leads you up the Asnola  Valley to the entrance of Cathedral Lake Provincial Park.  The Park, declared a class A  wilderness area in 1968, consists of five major lakes set in  a wild and rugged alpine area.  The area is surrounded on  three sides by massive peaks  towering to 8500 feet.  The peaks provide an excellent view of the surrounding  area and its impressive ridges  and valleys. The alpine meadows supply a compact and excellent example of B.C. Alpine  country. Each lake is slightly  different as is the area around  each lake. The beauty of this  area is that it is so compact.  There are many half-day hikes  and short walks on well made  trails and the longest hike over  Bakeview ,to. Boxcar Mountain  takes only nine hours.  Ef you are a keen hiker you  can walk from the bottom of  the valley to the lodge at the  top but most people pay the  $18 round trip fare for the easier way by jeep. The road,  lodlge, and part of Quiniscoe  Lake are privately owned and  you have to cross this land to  get into the park.  The backpacker who takes  the jeep can afford to .pack extras because it's only another  hour's hike from ihe lodge to a  basecamp area in the park  from where you can strike out  on smaller day hikes. If you're  not the camping type you can  always stay at the lodge. Meals  are included with lodge accommodation. Housekeeping cabins are also available.-  The entire area abounds  with wildlife. Besides the usual squirrels and <��chipmunks  you can expect to see pikas,  gophers, and marmots. In the  higher areas you will see moun  tain sheep and if you're lucky  there will also be some mountain goats around.  Something you ... shouldn't  forget is your fishing rod. Lake  of the Woods, Pyramid, and  Quiniscoe Lakes are excellent  for pan-size trout. Trout up to  seven pounds have been taken  from these lakes.  Another attraction of the  area are the alpine flowers.  Late summer is when many of  these flowers are in bloom.  The brilliant blue of the alpine  lupin is mixed with many other  colors and closely attendant on  the flowers are thousands of  -tiny butterflies also displaying  a spectrum of colors.  No one is too old or too  young or too out of shape to en  joy this area. You have the  choice of backpacking with a  tent and camping supplies or  you can stay at the lodge. You  also have a choice of walking  along the easy trails or you  can be a little more adventurous and do a little mountain  climbing. The area offers some  thing for every type of nature  lover.  For further information  about this area contact Tom  Fleet at 1333 Balfour Street,  Penticton. Between July 1 and  October 15 contact Cathedral  Lakes by radio telephone, Hed-  ley Channel.

KRAFT ENVELOPES  IN VARIOUS  SIZES  AT COAST  NEWS  By GLORIA FYLES  Another school year is upon  us and with it brings the time  for many girls from 7-15 years  of age to be looking forward  to Brownies and Guides. At  school they are asking each  other: "When do we start?  When is the registration?"  Well, the lucky girls are  those age 10 and over, the ones  who want to be Guides. They  will be registered at 7:00 p.m.,  Sept. 22 in the United Church  Hall. Each girl is asked to  bring a parent along with their  fee ($2.00 assessment per family plus $2 per girl registration fee). There will be a talk  and pictures shown on Rosina's  Mexico trip. Brownie mothers  and daughters may attend to  see the pictures also but not to  register. Sorry, Brownies, as  yet there are not enough leaders to get the packs going.  Last  year  I  pleaded   many  times   for  mothers   tb   attend  Brownie meetings to learn.  with the idea of taking over  this year. We had one mother  who came frequently and is  willing to give it a go and two  others who did not attend but  think they may be willing to  help. We expect approximately 35 - 40 girls of Brownie age  and I will not call for. registration until. I am sure I have al  least four sincere leaders who  want to help these girls and  who will be willing to carry  on for two years (the second  year is easy).  At this writing there is a  chance we may be able to start  one pack the last week of September but we still need lead  ers for another pack, also Showy Owls and Fairy Godmothers. There will be a leader  ship training in November tc  help get all of us in the swing  of things so no one is left to  struggle on their own.  When and if these packs get  started I will want interested  mothers to attend one meeting  a month to form a working  ladies auxiliary to the Guides  and Brownies. This is an essential part of the Guiding movement and we have had a very  poor showing of parents over  the last three years. As District  Commissioner I cannot attempt  to keep things running alone  and without a Commissioner,  leaders and mothers, there will  be no Guiding in this District.  Let's hear it for the mothers,  kids! Come on out Mom, Guiding can be fun for you too.

The ice is in at the Sunshine  Coast arena and it will be just  a matter of weeks before 450 of  our local boys and girls suit up  for a second' season of minor  hockey. This year we expect  to have many new faces; and  hopeifully a better all round  year of organized hockey. The  only major change this year  iwill be the mandatory mouth-  guard at all levels iri the association. This is accordance with  B.C.A.H.A. regulations.  For  those  of you who put  money  out towards   our  proposed summer hockey school, I  would first like to apologize tc  you. and your sons and daughters for not being able to carry it through. We only had 75  persons apply to the school at  the deadline, and unfortunately, it just "would not have paid  for the arena to hire three or  four persons for a month and  a half while the ice would be  in use for a few hours. Our association and UBC were willing to go ahead regardless ol  the number of applicants, but  decided that to do so mighi  endanger our winter program  as money is at a premium at  the   moment   with,  the   many  strikes. For those of you who  have not been refunded your  money,   you   may   put   your  hockey school tuition towardi-  your winter session and alsc  towards   the    mini-clinic   we  hope to have before the season  starts. We do have receipts for  all of you so please bear with  us.  It is hoped that a four-day  mini-hockey school, a referees  clinic and a coaching clinic wili  be held from Thursday, Oct. _  to Sunday, Oct. 5 for any interested persons. This is one weel.  end before our regular season  begins, and boys moving to .a  higher league will be draftee  on to their various teams.  CPreregistration will take place  at noon Saturday, Sept. 20 a1  the  Trail Bay   Mall   for   any  new members "or for any persons not able to register Saturday, Sept. 27 on our registration    day.

MeNevin, a Regional Boar  director, was earlier quoted in  a Vancouver newspaper as allegedly saying that some school  trustees had a conflict of interest in the site selection for  the Sechelt Junior Secondary  school. 7  MeNevin subsequently said  .he was misquoted in the paper.  However, the Vancouver Sun  in which the article appeared,  .Would not print a retraction of?  the article claiming their reporter's notes indicate an accurate story.

Under the previous  pressure system the lower part  of the village received adequate pressure while the top  part often experienced dry taps  with the presently increased  capacity and .pressure the upper village should receive good  pressure but the lower village*  may experience a blowout of  valves because of excessive  pressure. That problem is presently being alleviated by the  intallation of pressure reducing valves at certain critical  points.  To further increase the pressure for the upper town site  the village % has also recently  purchased a complete pump  set. The set, purchased from  a B.C. Hydro Peace River operation, consists of two ten  horsepower pumps, one for  standard use and one for standby, and a larger 65 horsepower  gas-propane convertible unit  capable of dispensing 750 gal-  Lons per minute. It is felt this  puanping system will provide  more than adequate water  pressure for the entire village  at all times.  Water rates in Gibsons are  presently $65 per year which is  comparable with other municipalities of this size. Council's  water committee has indicated  those rates will remain constant over the next few years,  which, according to that committee, is somewhat of a feat  since the village was very slow  in initiating a proper water  system in the first place.  Water   committee   chairman  A look at the Gibsons mill rate  prior to 1966 shows no major  municipal projects could have  taken place. The mill rate in  1959 was ten mills and in 1964  went    doiwn    to    seven   mills  evoking the question of whether council at that time was  sacrificing   municipal   services  such as water for the sake of  political   popularity.   In   1965,  after the release of the water  study by Dayton and Knight,  council   quickly   realized  the  water needs of the village and  it  was   decided  that   $113,000  would be spent on the capital  costs for a water system. Thus  the work was begun but with  water rates at $17 to $30 per  year from 1965 until last year,  an    extensive    water    system  would not develop too quickly  Council's hesitation to get.its  feet wet prevented the village  from borrowing money while  it was still relatively cheap to  do so, combined with the failure to raise water rates to a  more realistic rate resulted in  a system today that isn't quite  adequate for a village of this  size.  Presently, water development in the village is going  ahead according to the recommendations of a recent Dayton  and Knight report that is virtually an updated copy of the  original 1965 report. Work has  commenced along Abbs, Wyngaert and Martin roads, and an  eight inch feeder pipe is presently being installed along  Reed Rojyl. Various proposed  subdivisions in the village that  were   waiting   for   water  are  Water   committee   cnami-cu.     ����-_-    ..������=, ��.,__..���  Hoehne  conducted  a. personal    now ben* grjen the go^ad  study of several municipalities  similar in size to Gibsons. He  discovered that most of these  municipalities spent more money on a water system and spent  that money sooner than this  municipality. The present water system was not initiated  until 1966 at a cost of $113,000.  by council. The two million  gallon capacity reservoir near  Reed Road is to be completed  next summer. In the meantime  the water committee plans to  expand and improve water distribution steadily and as rapidly as income from water  rates will allow.  ARE YOU READY?

Try a good breakfast  darkling or grouchey - how  do you feel when you wake up  in __e morning? No matter in  what mood you get out of bed,  plan to take time for a good  -breakfast.  In the morning, the body's  supply of blood sugar, which  is the basic fuel for the brain  and central nervous system, is  at its lowest point. At least  seven hours, and more likely  ten to twelve hours, have gone  tij since your last meal and  the body no longer has any  food to produce blood sugar.  This is why it is so important  to have a good breakfast. Skip  it and you become Sluggilsih*  tdowrthinking and inefficient  by mid-morning. Studies have  shown over and over again  that {people perform poorly and  do less work when break_5ast  is ommitted. Similarly students  lack concentration and learn  more slowly.  Of all meals, breakfast is the  easiest to skip. We are usually  in a rush and too often, .the  menu is the same old thing day  after day. But who said breakfast had to be dull? Try foods  that brighten the table and  contain protein. This will main  tain your energy till luntohtime.  Alccording to experts, the  way it works is that your sugar starved body is craving  quick energy but in order that  the energy stays with you all  morning, you must also eat the  protein content foods.  The protein slows down the  body utilization of sugar and  ���gives you a constant energy  level all morning instead of an  immediate  zap   that lasts   no  PRINTED PATTERN  SIZES  4970   2_8  Hlappjy Sun-Days are here!

Blink your eyes a few times,  watch out for the arrows, and  you may be lucky enough to  focus in on one of the lads,  yes, that's him there, it's Robin  . . . Robin . . . what's-his-name?

In fact it was only a  few months ago that Robin,  who has been involved with  crossbows since way back  when, decided it was time to  bring these primitive but very  sporting weapons to this area.  The initial introduction occurred when the Powell River  Archery Club held a one day  archery school during Sechelt  Timber Days last May. The enthusiasm there was apparently  good enough to warrant an organization here. That brings us  to today and the birth of the  local archery club with HI mem  bers and 44 acres of land on  the Outskirts of Gibsons to  shoot on.  "What we want is a family  club," Robin says. "There's no  age limit, my four year old  daughter shoots."  Robin also stresses that the  group will hot be a hunting  club. It's strictly a target shooting club but it's set up in such  a way so as not to make it boring. In other words, you won't,  foe part of a line-up to shoot the  bulls-eye.  "We want to teach people to  be good hunters with primitive weapons. The idea is to  simulate the target in the most  natural hunting conditions."  The targets are color cardboard replicas of animals divided into several categories.  There are the forest animals,  for instance, like deer, pheasant, and fox and there are the  rhino and the lions. These targets are positioned on various  safari animals such as the  parts of the property, behind  clumps of bushes, hills, and  logs. In a competition the 'hunt  ers in groups of three or four  will follow a course and the  idea is, of course, to see how  many "animals" you can bag  The group plans to affiliate  itself with the American Crossbow Association (there's no  Canadian association) and the  B. C. Archery Association.  These associations provide safety standard and provincial and  CHURCH  SERVICES  ANGLICAN  Rev. David H. P.

Pinal score was 23->19.  The Gibsons club attempted  to keep as much play as possible in the scrum to try and  overpower the opponent while  UBC utilized their wide open  running and passing game.  Gibsons opened the scoring  with steady pressure inside the  UBC 25 yard ine. With good  ball control and strong work in  the rucks they moved close to  the goal line where Alex Skytte  took the ball and powered into  the end zone. Pat Gaines added  the convert and Gibsons led  6-0.  Following the kick-off UBC  went on the attack with some  fine runs and good supporting  movements resulting in two  quick trys and one convert.  Before half time Gibsons  again used their powerful  scrum to get them into the opposition end of the field and  from a set scrum at the five  yard line they pushed into the  end zone where John Upward  touched the ball down for the  try.  Following the Gibsons try  UBC added another to their total and score at the half was  UBC 14, and Gibsons 10.  Early in the second half both  teams traded penalty kicks and  then settled into strong defensive rugby. With . about ten  minutes remaining to be played Gibsons was controlling play  inside the UBC 25. From a set  scrum Gibsons won the hook  and the ball was passed to the  three-line where inside centre  Al Bogetti took control. Bogettf  moved through the UBC line  and into the end zone for the  try.  Pat  Gaines again kicked  the convert and Gibsons took  the lead 19-17.  Gibsons tried to control the  play and run out the, remaining time. The oposition was  bottled up in their own zon<_  and with only a couple of minutes to go a set scrum was  called. UBC won the hook and  the ball was passed to their  stand-off who made an excellent move to the inside and  with his fine speed he was able  to outdistance the pursuing defenders and go in for the score.  The convert was good.  There was not enough time  for Gibsons to mount a strong  attack and the game ended  with UBC ahead 23 to 19.  On Sunday, Sept. 21 Gibsons  will meet last year's champions  the Meralomas. The game will  start at 1 p.m. at Langdale Elementary school field. Evervone  is welcome to attend.  Anyone who is interested in  playing rugby is reminded that  practices are held Tuesday ana  Thursday at 6:30 at Langdale.

Fire Chief Dick Ranniger  said the late afternoon fire  started among cardboard boxes  underneath' the structure. Exact cause of the fire has not  been determined.  The cottage owned by Ted  Wall, was unoccupied at tbe  time of the fire.  School  work  starts  SOCCER  Registration for fall program  .
