I took a photo of this 1966 St.Lawrence team on my digital camera when I was home during Christmas. Never had I seen this team picture before. Wils Molloy had the picture and Wils informed me that the picture was taken in St.John's at Fort Pepperell ( Pleasantville, then known as Fort PEPPERRELL, was an American military base) Actually, you can see some of the old Buildings that are still standing in the background.

I can remember this team fairly well and most of the guys that were on it also played on the St.Lawrence 1967 team that were the first team to represent Newfoundland in Challenge Cup Competition.
