GAIR Lacrosse

I have read a lot about the GAIR brothers Hall of Fame members... but don't know much about their stick making business other than the stick appears to be made of laminated wood and wrapped in fiberglass.. this is the only stick that I have come across in the 10 years that I have been collecting. I have also learned that Gordon Gair himself made this stick back in the 1970's. "PRO-LAC" was the name of the company that he founded. 

I found the following description of the GAIR family on website for the Mississaugua News... 

Lacrosse was one of the grass-root sports in what was once Toronto Township — now Mississauga — but it lacked organization, leadership and vision.    Then along came Gordon Gair, one of Canada’s best players of his generation, to help pioneer vital changes. He played a leading role in the inception of the Toronto Township Lacrosse Association, which through the 1960s and 1970s produced some of the finest junior teams in the country. One of four Gair brothers to play the sport, he still owns the record for most goals (14) in an Ontario Lacrosse Association Major Series game, set on Aug. 24, 1946 while a member of the Barrie Lakeshores. That season, Gair finished with an incredible 100 goals. His 810 goals puts him 10th all-time in career goals, even though his career ended in 1949, nearly 60 years ago.     Gordon Gair, along with three of his brothers, is a member of both the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame and Ontario Lacrosse Hall of Fame. Last year, he was inducted into the Mississauga Sports Hall of Fame in the builder category.
