D Brackenrich, Chair- man of the Senate Natural Re- sources Committee, has appointed a subcommittee of the Natural Re- sources Committee to work with the Division of Natural Resources' Li- cense Task Force to improve the current format of the State's Hunting & Fishing Licenses. Many sportsmen have com- plained that the license is on too fragile paper and that its size makes it cumbersome to carry. Senator Brackenrich stated, '1 understand the need for a license system that gives all types of sportsmen an op- portunity to select the type of hunt- ing or fishing they are interested in, and that the system provide easy accountability. However, I do not understand why our license pur- chases cannot have a more durable license and one which is of a more manageable size. tt is my intention to work with the sportsmen, license agents and the Division of Natural Resources to solve this problem." Mr Brackenrich said "the license task force has met twice since the legislature has adjourned and some very good suggestions have been made. I believe real progress is being made. The license committee is composed of sportsmen, License Agents and staff of the Division of Natural Resources. They are work- ing very closely with me to solve this problem." Small Fry Concord Basketball Camp Concord College Basketball Coach Steve Cox announced there will be a Small Fry Basketball Camp for boys ages 8 to 13 July 12 through 16. "One of the features of the camp is that each team consists of only five players. A team will have no substitutes. This assures every camper of equal playing time during the team competition, Basketball in- struction and team play wilt be geared according to the age and experience of the individual," Mr Cox said. Concord College players will serve as camp counselors. Coaches and counselors will live in the dormi- tories with the campers.
