Adrian Bondett, a first-year badminton player with the local club, won the consolation side in the under-14 division at the Manitoba Junior Open in Winnipeg last weekend.

Bondett, 13, was swept 15-6 and 15-14 in his first best-of-three match before winning his next three by scores of 15-6/15-9, 15-9/17-14, and 15-9/15-11.

All four matches were against Winnipeg opponents.

Rink decision to be finalized Monday

Although a final decision won’t be made until Monday, Mayor Glenn Witherspoon has hinted the town most likely will look at building a second indoor ice surface adjacent to Memorial Arena.

Information received back from an engineering firm stated Memorial Arena has a life span of 15-20 years with minor upkeep, the mayor said yesterday morning.
