for the silence on the website these past 2 months. Plenty
happening, just no time to address it here. You know how that
Paulie works me like a rented goalie <grin>. We had 4 300s
these past 2 weeks to add to the list. December 1st saw both
Andy Phillips and Kevin Pickering do the deed. The next night,
Stacy Proudfoot checked in with his second career 300 score. The
following week, Bill Botjer shot his 11th career 300 and Bob Mack had
his first. Gheesh, when it rains it pours. Pictures can be
seen by clicking on the pics at right.
ol' buddy, Tony "Bunman" Adams shot his sixth career 300
tonight in the Hoops Accounting Classic with scores of
248-300-181-729. Now, you will notice that the picture at right
is not our hero, but his brother Mike Adams. There is a reason
for this. Tony is a pretty ugly looking fellow so to avoid
getting complaints of ogres on the website, I opted to go this
direction. Not that Michaels any prize, but he is a vast
improvement over poor un-gorgeous Tony.
are coming after the first 4 weeks of the season. The season's
first 2 honor scores were shot with Scotty Helberg's 300 and JJ
Westhoven's 821 on Sept 15th and 22nd respectively. Click on the
picture or "Award Pics" button to see the details.
we go. League meetings will be this week. Where'd the
Summer go? <sigh> Typical. I didn't get half the
stuff done I wanted to do, but the stuff that did get done is pretty
cool. The new scoring is pretty awesome. It's a bit
aggravating at times when something you've been doing for years with
the scorers is different and you have to learn something new.
You know how we "old farts" are. Anyway... here's a
list of the leagues with their meeting times and dates. It's 3
free games after the meeting so bring your equipment.
have the monitors hung and the lanes are ready for oil. Click HERE
to see the new pics that have been added. The bottom 5 are new
as of today.
been a busy buncha days since the last league ball was thrown on June
30. Arnie and Mark Sickmiller and the boys have been busy
cutting the lanes getting prepared for next season. Paulie and
Matt have been hackin' away at the old brackets, preparing for the new
color monitors going up in another week. And of course, we have
pictures galore of all this fun stuff. Click HERE
to see the work in progress.
to our word, we nabbed pics of Randy and the boys at the ABC's. Click
here for some great fun.
well... Felix and Bob..., were able to see a couple of the boys
bowling at the ABC Nationals this past week. Shown at right is
Brad West getting congratulated after his one and only strike during
the tournament.. <grin>. Click on the picture to see
all 8 of the pictures the guys grabbed during their tournament
play. Randy and da' boys head out early
tomorrow for their flight to the "Land of Moneymaker" to
take their crack at an "Eagle". Details to follow.
25th Annual River City Merit Tournament has come and gone. I was
a bit disappointed with the total numbers but all in all not too
bad. We had 68 participants this year and a good time was had by
all. We raised the men's division to 199 and under for the
handicap division, it was 189 last year, in an effort to balance out
the size of the divisions which has traditionally been almost two to
one scratch. It certainly did the job, as more were in the mens
handicap than scratch this year. Not a bad thing, really.
Randy and I are considering dropping the ladies scratch division next
year and making it entirely handicap. There just haven't been
that many lady scratch bowlers the past couple of tournaments.
Anyway, enough prattle. Here's the final
results. Thanks everyone.
know I've been a bit lax on keeping up with the Splitzter archives
these past 5 weeks. I just updated them to current status. Sorry
about the delay.
Henry County Singles/Doubles is finished. I have all the
unofficial results but Clare was in today and said he'd have
everything in by Tuesday night. Therefore, I'm going to wait a
day to show the REAL official standings. Look tomorrow for a new
message here announcing the posting.
just finished the web-pages with the Pepsi results. Here you
Thanks for your patience while we put things together on this.
just finished the Pepsi District this past weekend. Shirley has
told me that she will have results to me shortly. She is having
computer problems so we'll have to see when things come down the
pipe. If you're looking for results, here's what you need to
do. Click on the E-Mail button above and send me (Mark) an email
stating only "add me to the email list for Pepsi."
There's a contact list I'm building so that once I have something,
I'll email the page to those who emailed me. That saves you
checking back a bunch and nothing new to see.
just received the final TEAM EVENT results for the Henry County
Mens' from Clare Valley, tournament guru. The results can be found
by clicking on the "Tournaments" Button above.
got a bowling lesson Wednesday night. This is the only time I can
remember getting beat by 170 pins & loving every minute of it.
JJ Westhoven was plain "ON FIRE" in the Classic league
tonight. Starting with the first 10 strikes for 286, he followed
with a 279 then topped it with a 290 for a new Henry County high
series of 855. It was a sight to behold. I'd have paid $5 to watch
except that I had a front row seat. The pins were dancin' and he
was throwing as well as a body can do it. I just wish he'd have
waited a week <sigh>. Awesome bowling, JJ. That's Bradford
on the left (802 from Saturday), JJ on the right.
couldn't believe my eyes. Brad West as on fire during the
Primerica League. I kid you not, there wasn't a bad ball in
the bunch. Starting with a 279 in game one, Brad followed
with scores of 268-255 for River City's second eight of the year
with 802. Brad needed 253 in game 3 to lock it down, so he
just threw his first 7 strikes to get the job done. VERY nice
bowlin' there, Bradford.
the ladies had a big night tonight. Sherri Beck took over the
lead on ladies hi series in the county with games of 246-190-258 for a
694 series. Karen Zumfelde had a consistent night with
223-215-223 for 661. Even Bob Cannon had 11 in a row his second
game. Like I said, a girls' shot tonight. <grin>
old buddy Tony "Bun-Man" Adams turned in his 5th career 300
tonight in the Primerica Mixed. Shooting 229-223 his first two
games, Tony ran the first 8 strikes in the third game. About
that time I started looking for takers at $5 a pop. Of course, I
was betting FOR my bud. I won't go into detail on who's money I
got, but I'm up $10 and Tony didn't see a dime of it
<grin>. Atta boy, Bun-Man. Nice 752 series.
Tina Bohn shot her first ever 200 game with a 206 score in the Twilight
league last night. We go on and on about the big scores, and that's
important. But it sure is fun when someone who has been bowling
for a few years, enjoying the game just as much as the big boys,
shoots their first honor score. She had a 125 average so she was
81 plus. Atta girl, Tina.
project on the docket for the website will be to activate the "Honor
Scores" button. I'll have a list of ALL the award scores shot
at the center from day one of the season. I'll update it monthly,
I think. You'd be surprised just how long it is. We're talking all
the 700's, 150 plus series, 100 over, etc.. I'm debating on showing
it by league, by date or by name. Maybe I'll do it so you can choose
how you want it shown. I'm still pondering. I think at this point
we have around 130 total. I'll post it here when it's ready to go.
it's fixed. The Ladies' scores come up at right as a default. Click
on the "Mens High Scores" button to show the fellas. Can
you believe it? I said I'd get it done by Dec 31st and ACTUALLY
got it done... on time... a pure fluke. <grin>
you just know it.... I update the NEW databases with the weekly honors
and it blows up in my face. I think I overwrote 3 hours of
coding with what was on the server. I HAVE to quit doing dumb
things. I'm hoping to get some time tomorrow afternoon to find
my boo-boo and fix it. Too bad, too. It sure looked cool
25th & 26th....
"Hi School Traveling" link has the schedules and weekly
results added with a bit o' graphics.
finally got it figured out. How to do the weekly updates on high
scores without forcing you to go to another page. Sure... you get
a day off on Christmas... Paulie shames me into working on the webpage
<grin>. Also, I changed a button above and called it "Scratch
Site Trial". This is the dummy site for the new style of standings
I will be using next season. Individual histories, week-by-week
standings, all sorts of cool stats that YOU can customize to suit
you. Pretty neat stuff. Don't become enamored with all the colors.
They are VERY temporary.
know... I know.... It's been 2 months since I updated this front
page on the site. To say I've been busy with things isn't
a very good excuse but it IS faster than last year where updates
were 9 months apart. Anyway, I've activated the "Award
Pics" on the buttons up top. You can also click on the
pic at right to get there. We have, from left to right, Bruce
Engler-Andy Phillips-Emilio Mora, Sr. The fellas each shot
300's in the Hernandez Insurance Classic exactly one week apart.
Emilio's on the 3rd, Andy's on the 10th and Bruce on the 17th.
That's kinda cool. I'm not sure who the big guy in red is.
Might be the spot where Eggman shoots his on the 24th.
by the way.... I've updated a couple of links above. Hi School Traveling;
Award Pics (obviously) & Company Party. The company party page
has various pics from the most recent Campbell's employee Christmas
Party held here December 7th & 14th. There are some VERY cute
pics of the kids on there.
notice I killed the Top Weekly & Seasonal Scores at the right
of this page. I have to make these a seperate page unto themselves
for various programming reasons. I'll have a button renamed at top
when I get this happening. Hopefully by December 31st. I'll post
a comment here when completed.
