Kendrick does it again, for real

Hello, bowlers! Long time, no see!

We’ve been busy around here, getting the second half of the season under way. Speaking of that, if I haven’t hit your company up to place a team in the upcoming Thursday Merchants Short Season Bowling League, please be advised that we need only eight teams (or businesses) to make this thing work.

A team can be made up of employees, customers or family. As a bonus, each member of the team gets a custom drilled bowling ball at the completion of the league.

Good start

Joey Kendrick started the new year off right. He rolled his second 300 game.

If you remember, he rolled one last year, but it was in a pre-bowl situation, so the score counts as an achievement, but no ring came with it. Well, this time he gets the ring. Congratulations, Joey!

The scores

Now on to the scores!

The Monday Night Mixed League winners of the first half are the. “Under Dogs.”

Early in the second we have a three-way tie for first, “Scarbrough State Farm,” “YMCA” and “Fourplay.” The best scores this time were shot by Keith Sellars, with 227; Justin Amaro, rolling a 224, and Alan Giles shooting a 214.

Alex Brinson bowled a 164, and Michael Evans rolled a 162. Heather Watts had the best game for the girls, 139, and Lane Jackson (welcome back) had a 121.

If I missed your “big game,” tell me about it so I can make you famous in the paper.

So much to say, so little time!

Until, next time, Keep On Bowling!
