(August 2)   Even with four players and their coach sidelined, and an injury during the game, Nakusp came through with a 15-7 triumph Sunday to capture the championship of the Slocan-Arrow Lakes Baseball League. Timely hitting by Hiro Yanagisawa and Leno Zanier and strong pitching relief by Lloyd Waterer paced Nakusp to the crown. Waterer took over for starter Pat Savage in the second inning and held New Denver to four hits the rest of the way. Nakusp had Jackie James, Ed Smith, Brian Hoshizaki and coach Fred Desrochers down with the mumps and Derek McQuair away. They lost Dave Walker in the third inning when hit in the eye by a pitch and taken to hospital. After five stitches, he was reported to be doing fine. The semi-final playoffs were set to begin August 9th.
