Bowling – To the matter at hand

Hello, Bowlers!

Hi! We haven’t talked for a while, and I appologize for that. Life’s tough right now but getting better, so I will push right into the matter at hand. We just completed the last week-end of our 10th Annual Port City USBC Championships, and I have the results right here! I was hoping to get pictures, but I can get them in later, I know you just can’t wait another minute for the results, so here goes:

I’ll start with the ladies. First place team event goes to “Just Us Girls,” with a score of 2598. Team members were Barbara Camp, Maxine Johnson, Millie Cross and LaVerne Holman.

Congratulations to all our champions, and my sincere thanks to Valerie Schultz, who was the tournament director this year. Outstanding job! Also, thanks to all who participated in the tournament, you are all winners (but of course you already know that).

We are starting a “Braggin’ Rights Merchant League” March 15 (Tuesday) at 7 pm. All merchants who place a team in the league will have their company logo posted in the center for the duration of the league and will receive a trophy. Lots of fun, trash talkin’, and competition. Get four people together and give me a call at 246-5530 to get your team into the league.

League standings will follow in the next installment, and I will try to be prompt and accurate.

Until then, keep on bowling!
