That gave her a lead she would not relinquish. Fennell and her foursome of Elaine Delannoy, Brenda Garnett and Pearl Kalechyn twice had the chance to go ahead. It seemed luck had run out, though, as the skip came up light on a draw for two in the third and missed a hit for another deuce in the eighth. "I think that made the difference in the game. We would have been two up coming home if we would have made those two. We just weren't getting quite the rolls we wanted. It was the not-quites today," said Fennell.

Seles, who has made the finals in each of her 14 tournaments this year, earned $35,000. shouts instructions to her sweepers in the final blanked the ninth before hitting for three with her final stone in the 10th. "That was our strategy going in was if we got up a point, we would play it clean and if we got a chance for the deuce, go for it. We wanted to keep it fairly simple and it worked. This is the second consecutive championship for the Schneider foursome which won the Tartan IGA Classic in Regina. The skip hopes the success will continue through playdowns in January where, for the first time in three years, she will not be the defending champion. "That doesn't bother us . . It seems the defending champion always gets a little more coverage but I would like to stay in the background and sort of sneak up."

Costs mount for Big 'O' MONTREAL (CP) Add another $25 million or so to the cost of the Olympic Stadium. "This (stadium) is a piece of equipment that has already drained sufficient public funds, more than $2 bil lion," said Andre Vallerand, - minister responsible for the Olympic Installations Board. -"Debt is still about half a billion. Now there is a $25 million bill emerging for assorted t costs following the rips in the stadium's Kevlar roof last June and the collapse of a 50-tonne beam in September. .' But "before saying we should scrap this, we should - think twice," the minister. ; said. , "We are near a solution that will allow us to use the - building in complete safety. " It is safe for the public." Both Vallerand and board president Pierre Bibeau confirmed Monday that the Quebec Treasury Board has been asked to approve additional credit of $20 million for unexpected stadium costs. This breaks down to about $10 million to repair and strengthen beams and about $5 million for consultants and roof repairs. The total includes a fund of about $5 million for possible compensation to organizers of an agriculture show that had to be cancelled and to the Montreal Expos for 13 games that couldn't be played.
