OLD DUCKS PLAY ALCHESAY BAND TURKEY DAY GAME AT ARTS FETE by Irma Kitcheyan WHITE RIVER - While everybody else was getting ready in preparing food for the Thanksgiving Day dinner, the ex-high school boys or men v ere getting ready to play in the Tliariksgiving Day Turkey Bowl Game. With borrowed uniforms and 30 men who had signed up to play showed up at Alchesay High School football field to start the game tHat afternoon. The men were divided into two groups to make the team. The game was schedided by Ivan Kitcheyan and Gordon Wood. These men hadn't played football since they graduated from high school nor had they practiced, for some it was just a year or two, while for others, it was 5 years or more. It was a surprise to see some interested people showing up for the game and staying to watch it. During the game, it was interest ing to see some fat ones and slim ones playing; some who couldn't run any more or some who couldn't catch the ball. But all in all, every one ol those m en did a good job of playing football. It really was a good game. Gordon Wood passed to Ray Hume for the first touchdown for Wood's team. Gordon then passed another to Curtis Albert for the s< cond touchdown to make the sc re 12 points for Wood's team. Ivan Kitcheyan threw a pass to Archie Cosen for the first touch down and another pass by Kit cheyan to Randall DeClay made the second touchdown. After the second touchdown Kitcheyan passed to Ramon Riley for the tie breaking point to win the game 13 to 12. I am pretty sure that all those men that played on the team had fun playing and it was fun watching them play.
