Olivette Lanes “Ashley” Dinner Special – Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwich with a side of Pasta Salad- always a good way to get the night off to a good start. Advertisement courtesy of Olivette Lanes. Thank you to Ashley and the entire crew for making our Monday nights Special!
Tim Lorenz won the 50/50 winner – $57 – and also had a big night on the lanes with a 217 scratch/284 handicap game (good enough for 2nd on the year) and a 709 handicap series. The Captain was a little too heavy (losing to a virtual Pete Milne – on the beach in Riviera Maya) even with above average nights from Z and Schu. Team Cowell went down 12-10 to Team Soifer. Team Soifer had a solid night with Mike Regan, Vic Difate and Curt Linton rolling 643/645/647 handicap series, respectively.
Team Weiss had a blind as well with Don Lorenz wintering in Hawaii with brother Doug, also a no show on 17 & 18. Don was on the board matching up against Don Klackner in a battle of the Dons. Klackner easily took care of the absent one with a nice 602 scratch/ 644 handicap series. This helped Team Kocher beat the Weiss guys 18-4. Team Kocher had quite a night – leading the way was Phil Hesley with a 761 handicap series. He only beat Jack Windish by 162 pins. Ouch! Captain Bob chipped in with a 619. Team Weiss was led by Captain Matt with a 223 scratch game and 674 handicap series.
Team Harris with the Captain and wife, Taylor, edged out league leaders, Team Decker, 12-10. Bob “Newsie” Barnes led the way with a 202 scratch game and 645 handicap series. He got plenty of help from Carl Lane, 635 handicap series, and Captain Price with a 631 handicap series. Blake is back and he got a lot of help from Tom Keeline (683,682 handicap series, respectively) but it was not enough. Mike Borough was the blind on these lanes. No reports on his whereabouts. Maybe ice fishing in northern Minnesota? Not cold enough for him here.
Last but not least, Team Cooper, with Superstar Rotarian, Rose, leading the way, won in yet another 12-10 decision, beating Team Lorenz. Rose took a large amount of pleasure in beating another blind, Rick Tinucci, who is down south in the Sunshine State. Rose had a 627 handicap series. Rich Losciale and David Wicks played supporting roles in the win (628/615). Adam McNutt had a BIG night for Team Lorenz with a 714 handicap series but it was not enough to overcome TWO blinds. Derrick Wendling was also on the board but not in attendance. Rich reported he has a hand injury after a slip and fall on some ice while walking the dog. We hope he is back at Olivette soon.
Decker continues to lead the way in this the 3rd Quarter but there are 5 teams within a good night of the leaders.
Should make for an interesting end to the quarter.
See you ALL again next week at Olivette Lanes. I don’t want to see any blinds on the board. Let’s make it happen!
