- December 5, 2002
week, River City saw numerous local guys celebrate the holiday with fine
performances on the lanes. The
Hernandez Insurance Classic saw eight 700ís Wednesday night.
Game 2 turned out to be the most eventful one in recent memory. On lane2 1&2 Rick Caudill started the carnage with a
sweet 300 game. Bowling in
the 4 spot, right behind Rick was the Eggman.
Would you believe it? The EggDude tossed 12 (somewhat) solid
strikes and turned in a rare back-to-back treat (and now he takes a week
off from his writing duties? I
smell a rat). Dueling perfectos. Meanwhile,
on lanes 7&8, Mike Schmidlin was putting together his own masterpiece.
Finally, on lanes 5&6, Dan Hall was gunning to join the party.
A solid 10 pin on ball number 12 left Dan one pin short at 299.
In the long run, Dan had the last laugh as he finished off the
night with another in game 3. His 275 along with his 226 first game put him at the top of
the heap with an 800 series. Dan
had a 300 earlier in the season, and now has another ring to go with it.
Even yours truly had a decent night Wednesday.
After taking 10 weeks off for knee surgery, I made my return.
I got off to a slow start (I swear that five pin was off-spot), but
managed to win all 3 of my match points.
My reward? I get to bowl Rick Caudill this week.
Hopefully he and Eggman got this stuff out of their systems.
other news, entries for the Henry County Menís Tournament are available.
With added sponsors this year, prize money should be the best ever.
Hamler Lanes houses the team event in February while River City
will play host to the singles and doubles events in March.
of tournament entries, how many of you guys havenít turned in your state
tournament forms yet? Check
the dates they were due (notice I said were).
If you get shut out, youíll have no one to blame but yourselves.
It will be a great time this year as always.
