Another fun night at bowling. If you have not bowled with us, come on out to join us. Pick a team to cheer on. Getting involved with our bowling league is one of the best ways to really get to know most of our really active members.
This is our 99th year. Be a part of history, join us next year for 100th!!! We ought to have 100 bowlers for year 100. Wouldn’t that be cool???
Although our hard core members are there rain, shine, snow, and injured, we did have several out on the disabled list (DL). The Linton-Finch Team could not field a player and Team Decker gained all 22 points. But, Ralph was the only member of his team for the first game. He didn’t slack off though rolling a 222 in the first game. He received reinforcement in game 2 and 3 from his lovely wife, Linda, so it wasn’t just a one man show. This moved Team Decker into 2nd place only 1 point out of 1st.
Speaking of DL, Terry Werner of the Wicks Team has been DL for several weeks. Ever since coming back from his “Down Under” trip he has been suffering back problems. We have been missing him, but also want him completely healed. Maybe he was jumping with the kangaroos too much??
Jon Soifer was the big winner for the 50/50 drawing netting $45. I think he got the tickets that were supposed to have been mine. Oh, well next week.
Lots of people were well above their averages for the night. Six bowlers were more than 37 pins over average for the 3 game series. Notably, Vic DeFate, Doug Lorenz, and Carl Lane were 77, 69, and 67 pins over series average for the night.
Really big games were fewer, Ralph Decker, Steve LaFara, and Black Critzas had the top games at 222, 211, and 199 respectively.
With only 4 weeks left in the 4th Quarter the top 4 teams are separated by only 6 points. The next 4 weeks should be really competitive.
Tuesday, 4/17 is our annual St. Louis / KC Tournament in Columbia. Our team is a little smaller this year, but we plan to beat the socks off of KC. The we’ll have a good meal in fellowship.
FYI – the trip is included in our annual bowling fees. This is great fun and a real highlight for the year. Just another reason to join our bowling league.
