Players came from as far away as Alaska, Maine and Idaho. The tournament, held March 18 and 19, included six teams, three of which played on Saturday and the other three playing on Sunday. Scores are combio.ed to deter- mine the winners. Brian Delemarter and the greens keepers had the course in great condition. The pin place- merits were tough which made for an interesting tournament. The awards banquet was held at the Sandtrap, where Roberto Teje- da and crew l rovided a sumptuous steak dinner. Don Diggins said that if it were not for Mike Reyes taking Swede Foote up to the golf course 30 years ago and teaching him the game and introducing him to members of the Men Club, this tournament would never have been started. He also said that although it has always been a men's tournament, that over the years there have been many women who have helped make the event a success. First Place Winners Mike Alegria.

The team traveled to main- land for a one day trip and pla3/ed against a relatively inexperienced team from Yorba Linda. The game was completely dominated by Catalina and, while we scored some aice goals and had some bright moments, we could have played much better. Juan Gonzalez played very well at midfield delivering four assists and scoring one goal. Kellen Zeller teamed up with Her- man Soto to score two goals and another one unassisted as Kellen finished the game with threegoals. Also scoring for Catalina was Hernan with two goals, James Vickers, Mitch Cleveland and Trevor Zcller. A1 Bombard played very well in his first game at attack and is expected to get more playing time during the remainder of the season. Our next game is at home, Sat- urday, at 1 p.m. at The Field of Dreams. The team plays against: Woodbridge High School in what should be a very good game. Woodbridge's Lacrosse pro- gram is 6 years old and they have a very good Varsity team as well as a strong middle school feeder program. We now have Catalina Lacrosse T-Shirts available for sale 'every day for $15.00 at Courtyard Cof- fee in The E1 Encanto Marketplace and this weekend at The Field of Dreams during the game. Come on out and support the team. Twenty-five Avalon High School students plan to travel to Europe this summer for an educational and life-changing experience. History teacher Bill Moran will lead the students in exploring Lon- don, Paris, Florence and Rome. They will be taken on tours by the fully accredited educational organ- ization, EF Tours. The mission of the company is to break down bar- tiers of language, culture and geog- raphy, and to expand the awareness of the participating youths. All 25 Avalon students are rais- ing the money necessary to cover their expenses. They are currently selling tickets to a community dance on April 29. It will be held from 8-11 p.m. at the in the high school gym. The popular local band "Some- thing" will be playing a variety of oldies and rock. European refresh- ments will be available, although alcohol will not be permitted. Every dance ticket is also an opportunity to win prizes, includ- ing a 21 speed mountain bike, a gourmet candlelight dinner for six served at a luxurious Hamilton Cove Villa and many other items. Tickets for the dance are $10 and available from the students. For more information please contact Bill Moran at 510-0790. I have asked for a capacity report that will tell us once and for all what this town can or cannot absorb with regards to infrastructure, water and vehicle congestion. We have not yet received this report, yet Mayor Morrow is already exalting the proposed $300 million dollar Koll/Lambert project, praising it, and telling everyone that it's the best thing since peanut butter. He acts like it's a done deal. There is also a proposed 88 unit Hamilton Cove project. What about this project Mr. Mayor? I THINK WE SHOULD EXAMINE ALL OF THE FACTS. THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE Please Vote WINSLOW For Mayor
