LETTERS: Pier hosted weighlifting contest in 1959

Editor:

Sorry to hear about the damage to the White Rock Pier.

In the summer of 1959 the Pacific Northwest (B.C., Washington, Oregon)weightlifting championship was held at the far end of the pier. I participated in this event. Boy, was it hot. Does anyone remember this event?
