Getting right to the meat and
‘taters of the issue, the top five finishers in the ladies tourney are
as follows: Pin Pirates-2955;
Pete’s Fountain-2938; Hoops Accounting-2929; Henry County Bank-2896;
Ward’s Snow Removal-2889. Actual
Team High Series and Game went to Henry County Bank with a 2680 and 940
respectively. High Team
Handicap Game went to Pete’s Fountain with their 1043 score.
The guys paid the top 10 spots
as follows: Geritol Bills Boys-3504 ($750); Junge Roofing-3421 ($500);
Hoops Trucking-3409 ($358); Harry Von Deylan John Deere-3397 ($269);
Imbrock Pheasant Farms-3396 ($213); Hoops Accounting-3377 ($175);
Kline’s-3355 ($136); Egg’s Heroes-3355 ($136); Hamler Air Tech-3322
($109); Classic Products-3295 ($93).
There are listings showing how each team fared posted at the
bowling centers. Also, Eggman
promises to have the listings on the River City website by Thursday. They can be found at www.bowlaway.com.
I want to call your attention to
something new the men did this year that I think was a superb idea.
Last year’s cost per event was $16 with an optional $2 handicap
all-events fee. The guys
raised this to $18 per event but this cost includes the all-events fee
automatically. For those who participated multiple times in the team event,
the extra $2 goes directly into the team prize fund. Not only did this generate more bucks so an extra team place
could be paid, it also gets everyone into the all-events category.
Great idea, guys. It had to be Clare’s.
No way an idea this good came from the Hoopster.
With the team event wrapping up,
it’s the time to look to those Singles/Doubles Event entries.
The ladies swing a bit west of Deshler as Hamler Lanes host the
S/D. River City Bowl-A-Way
hosts the men’s event with “The Boxer Squad” kicking off the action
March 1. Boxer’s squad is
full but there are still openings on all remaining squads throughout the
event in men’s and ladies.
On a personal note: Ye Ol’
Splitzter bowled last Friday for the second time and, as usual, had a
grand time. I even managed to
eek out a 297 game sandwiched between a couple of below average efforts.
Don’t even ask about the 7 pin count on the last ball.
I think Junior Mohler put the whammy on my shot.
I’m not sure but I think I heard the words “sissy” and
“choke” bandied about. <sigh> Oh, well.
I guess Henry County’s not ready for it’s first 300 with a
backup ball. I don’t feel too bad.
At least I didn’t run the first 8 strikes, leave a ringing
Brooklyn 5-pin, then miss it. I
won’t mention any names (Randy Elling) but I’ve never seen that one in
my many moons of keglin’.
