FMA ,'C2 EDMONTON JOURNAL, Thursday. December 30, 1982 V A-A -ft v . Jarl Omholt-Jensen " Labrador City stop fornordic World Cup '' What does the average Canadian know about Labrador City, Nfld? r Not much, right? Lab City would still be an obscure place to most of us were it not for the 1983 World Cup crosscountry finals scheduled for March 26-27, followed by the North American Championships and 8th Annual Great Labrador Loppet March 29 to April '' Labrador City's chief claim to fame lies in its iron ore deposits. There's enough iron there, and in sister-town Wabush six km away, to make Toyotas for the next five hundred years. Much of their ppen-pit product is exported overseas in the form of iron ore pellets loaded on ocean-going freighters at the St. Lawrence River port of Sept-Iles, Que. ; 300 km south. The area of Labrador City and Wabush, known as Labrador West, is looking with optimism and enthusiasm towards the World Cup in spite of concerns surrounding its drop in ore sales due to the world recession. A group of 12, mainly local, sponsors pooled resources to raise more than $200,000 to promote and run the events. Bill Koch of the U.S., the 1982 World Cup champion, was hired to design the trail system. The trails are seeded for off-season hiking through picturesque areas surrounding the community of Labrador City. . After skiing them two weeks ago, I concur with visiting athletes that the trails are challenging, safe, ever-changing and pure enjoyment to ski on as they .offer unique scenery everywhere. At virtually the same latitude as Edmonton, Lab City boasts a snowfall total of which Edmontonians jean only dream. Approximately 25 metres of snow ifalls on Labrador West during most years although ..ihis one has been as strange as everywhere else, resulting in slightly less than normal amounts so "Hfar. ; "We have yet to receive any negative comments bout the area," said Karl Krats, World Cup chief of race. "We were able to handle over 140 Canadian and American skiers during the November to December snow camps." ' Krats hopes to see the skiers back in the late season as well. "The trend is for skiers to stay on snow more and more each year. With snow on the ground until June, we can make that possible," he 'said. Access to Labrador City is limited to air or rail, following the World Cup races in Anchorage, a special charter will fly the top skiers, their coaches 2nd the media to Labrador City, March 22. I "What we're hoping for is a highly competitive yircuit. We'd like to see the outcome settled at our finals in Lab City and not in Europe or Anchorage," said World Cup champion, Colin -Jardine. Those sentiments are shared by the host ski club, the sponsors and committee members who have done a massive amount of work to give Canada another site on the international skiing map. Win relieves Eaglecoach By ALLEN PANZERI Journal Staff Writer Tom Deaton is not altogether unfamiliar with university basketball in Canada. He's helped out at the last two summer basketball camps put on by the University of Alberta and he's a good friend of Golden Bear coach Brian Heaney. Still, the Tennessee Tech head coach was more than a little surprised that it took his Golden Eagles an NCAA Division I squad so long to register a victory in the 1982 Klondike International Basketball Classic. "There's no question about it," said Deaton of the shock he experienced Tuesday, when his team lost two games in a row, to the University of Calgary Dinosaurs and to Athletes in Action. "We came into town and saw the article saying our team and AIA should have no trouble in the tournament. But we were a little fatigued and I think we went out there a little overconfident." But after those two losses, the Golden Eagles came out Wednesday and finally displayed the talent that apparently was just temporarily displaced, the talent everyone knew was there. Before about 250 fans at Varsity Gym, the Golden Eagles took out all their frustrations and thrashed Ottawa's Carleton University Ravens 117-65, for the fourth-highest point total in 59 seasons of basketball at Tennessee Tech. "It was disappointing when we were 0-2," said Deaton, who shared coach-of-the-year honors in the Ohio Valley Conference last year. "And now we just hope we can come out with a 2-2 record. "But overall it has been a good experience for us. It was good for us to lose to Calgary, because it gave me a chance to rant and rave. That doesn't mean anything now, because these games don't count in our conference but the experience factor will matter later in the year when we do have games that count. "But I've really been impressed with the calibre of teams here, especially the collegiate teams." Jimmy Elliott and Lonnie Boone each had 20 points for the Golden Eagles, while Keith Kelso had 23 for Carleton. In Wednesday's second game, AIA ensured itself of a berth in tonight's championship final (9 p.m.) with an oh-so close 66-60 victory over UBC Thunderbirds. IAS atf ri I rXf r ' ' - 8-w .Tin : . & , fc'- rjr F V 5,-y I I Tennessee Tech (in dark jerseys) . . . found the competition tough The other berth in the final will be occupied by the Dinosaurs, who hammered the Golden Bears 89-65 Wednesday night. Before about 500 fans, the Dinos roared to a 45-31 half time lead and continued to add to it in the second half, as the Golden Bears had the touch of ice around the basket. As usual, Calgary's ace was guard Karl Tilleman, who had 20 points in the first half and accumulated 39 overall before leaving with 7:14 left in the game. In the consolation games tonight, Carleton will play UBC at 5 p.m.; the Golden Bears face Tennessee Tech at 7 p.m. -Scorebo Hockey 2 - ?iL J?

Anderson Tot 1417 Daousl Tot, Tremblay Mtl IB 46 Goalie takes touring over junior By RON LAJOIE Journal Staff Writer The way Jim Bailey has it figured,, a trip to Sweden sure beats a seven-hour bus ride to Medicine Hat. That's the main reason the Whitehorse Hougen's Hawks Midgets' goalie decided not to accept offers to play junior hockey and stay Big Zee finds work in USFL TORONTO (CP) Zenon Andrusyshyn, the leading punter in Canadian Football League history who established 16 punting, kicking and scoring records with Toronto Argonauts, will play next season with Tampa Bay Bandits of the United States Football League. The Globe and Mail reported Wednesday that Andrusyshyn, 35, who played part of this year for the Edmonton Eskimos, accepted an offer last week over the telephone. "I'm very happy with the offer," said Andrusyshyn. ' The two-year offer from the Bandits, the entry of Toronto entrepreneur John F. Bassett, is believed to be worth close to the $50,000 the Argonauts were to pay him under his last contract. in the land of the midnight sun a little longer. "I knew the trip was coming up," said Bailey of the Hawks' recent excursion to Sweden to take part in two international hockey tournaments. "I didn't want to miss it so I decided to stay." The team here for the Christmas Midget B hockey tournament has just returned after a 10-day trip to the Scandinavian county. They won't be sleeping in their own beds again until New Year's Eve. So it has been a long two weeks. But the team showed little effect from their 20-hour flight to Edmonton, hammering Blue Quill 10-5. "I'm a little tired," said Bailey, who is also suffering from a touch of the flu. "I didn't play that well today." But Bailey and Andrew Emson, who shares goaltending duties, played well enough in Sweden to lead the Klondikers to the Pitea Tournament title, the first time a team from outside Sweden won the award. The Whitehorse team was the first from the Yukon Territory ever to tour outside Canada. As far as Bailey is concerned the decision not to turn junior right away was worth it. He's only 16 and in Grade 11, so he has plenty of junior eligibility left. In fact he heard Wednesday the Sherwood Park Crusaders might be interested in his services. He also has an eye on university hockey. For now he can hardly wait to get back home for a little rest. 4 Tot. Varve 14 (Daousl Korn) 5 38 (pp) 5 Tor Melrose 1 (Temon.
