The art of bowmaking coming to Bridgeport ,.3chool The most important long-range weapon on ancient battlefields was the bow and arrow. The first men and women to cross the Bering Strait and enter North America carried bows and arrows with them; they were the primary weapon in the New World until the Europeans brought guns. The techniques to make bows will be the subject of a series of classes to be taught at Bridgeport High School, beginning Tues- day, February 10. "The art of bowmaking" will show students how to choose materials and turn them into a usable traditional ar- chery bow. The class will meet from 6 to 9 p.m. in the high school shop; a schedule for the remaining classes will be determined during the first class Tuesday night. The instructor will be Jerry Johnson, assisted by shop teacher Jeff DeJarnett. Johnson worked with some Bridgeport High School students to make a bow; it now hangs on the wall of the shop. This class will be open to adults and to students who are accompanied by a parent. Johnson said the bows will be usable, if they are made properly. Students will learn how to pick the proper wood and treat it to avoid splitting and checking. They will learn how to use hand and power tools to shape and construct the bow, and painting and varnishing the finished product. Stu- dents will have to attend the first class to find out what materials they will need, Johnson said. Participants will be required to purchase their own materials. In addition, they are required to have some knowledge of basic woodworking equipment, such as the proper use of planes and saws, The process is long and painstaking; DeJarnett estimated it would take a minimum of 15 to 20 hours to complete if the bowmaker did not encounter any problems. Johnson said registration is limited. People who want to register or who want more infor- mation can contact Johnson in Bridgeport or DeJarnett at Bridgeport High School.

I Brewster Bears' cold shooting en{Js in loss to Chelan Goats The Brewster Bears had trouble hitting their shots and suffered a 57-40 loss to Chelan last Thursday night. Chelan used a very deliberate offense to slow down Brewster, but the Bears were in the game late in the fourth. The Goats rallied over the final four minutes to gain the win. "We stood around on offense," said Tim Taylor, Brewster boys basketball coach. "We did not give them much of a chance to foul us. As bad as we played we still had a chance to win." Johnny Gebbers netted 10 points, nine rebounds and three assists, Cody Gunn hit two treys and finished with eight points, Daniel Gebbers had two treys and seven "We stood around on offense" - Tim Taylor, points, Brice Boesel pitched in six points, Dustin Boesel put in four points, Mark Brown had three points and Jason Knowlton added Jtwo points. Chelan concentrated its zone defense around Johnny Gebbers, Caribou Trail League's leading scorer, and forced him outside. Johnny never got into a rhythm offen- sively and was held to 10 points-- well Brewster boys below his season average. The Goats outscored Brewster by 13 basketball coach points at the foul line. Brewster was just 2-5 on its free throws while Chelan made 15-25"of its free throws. Chelan's Phil Cullen had 16 points and Lutes Dobbs had 14 points.
