Currently there are five bowling leagues in full swing enjoying the renovated equipment and alleys. Here are just a few reports from them.

Monday morning Ladies’ League, December 5/ Pat Kuech reported:

The cool damp weather did not keep the ladies from having a fun morning. Our star of the day this week was Linda Wakefield who had her new high single game in the first game and matched it during her third and as result had a new high series too! WTG Linda. Others with new high singles were Jane Cox and Nada Ream. At the end of four weeks of bowling, the ladies have all four teams tied. It looks like these ladies are on the way to a close scoring season.

Monday night Men’s League, December 5/ Peter Benedetto reported: I was told that Tony put down a “new” oil pattern yesterday for the ladies’ morning league and it seems it had some good results for them, and it certainly had some good results for us last night as well.

First place team 4 (Bob Struck/Dale Godby/Ron Martin filling in for Ernie Rothermal/Garry “super-hero” Kline/ PeterBenedetto) definitely had no complaints, winning all 4 points from Team 2 (Sam Krotzer/John Yerdon/Bob Emmons/ Floyd Warner/Bob Browning) who were in second place. On alleys 3 & 4, Team 3 (Kurt Swigart/Mike Thomas/Jerry Berton/Bob Wieboldt/Mark Boerner) took 3 points from Team 1 (Russ Griffeth/Ron Younts/Norm Francavilla/Walt Lowe/ Gordon Watkins filling in for Jim King). Individual accolades go to John Yerdon for his 193 in the second game and 225 in the third game and a season high series for the league of 559.

Also PeterBenedetto had a 201 game and a 546 series, Walt “fearless leader” Lowe had a 183 game and a 499 series, Kurt Swigart had a 486 series, Floyd Warner had a 474 series and Bob Struck had two games of 169 and a 473 series.

Tuesday night Mixed League, December 6/ Cheryl Olson reported:

It was another challenging night at the lanes. Team #4 (Olson, Browning, and the Kaczmareks) is still on top in league standings with a total of 16 wins but split the night at 4 games apiece with Team #1 (Hoyt, Mahoney, and the Thomases). Team #3 (Robbins, Layton, Watkins, and Smith) took 6 points out of 8 from Team #2 (Schroder, Klosterman, and the Martins) and moved into 2nd place with a total of 12 wins. This caused Team #2 to slip into a tie for 3rd place with Team #1 at 10 wins apiece. There were no scores at 200 or above, but Gary Smith had a 187 and Dave Kaczmarek had a 182. Turkeys (three strikes in a row) were scored by Bob Browning and Dave Kaczmarek while Gordon Watkins picked up a difficult 6/4 split. Weekly High Game with Handicap went to Dave Kaczmarek with 227 for the guys and a tie with 213 to Pat Schroder and Chris Robbins for the gals. Weekly High Series with Handicap again went to Dave Kaczmarek with a 630 for the men and to Pat Schroder with a 611 for the women. Pat and Dave were on fire with Pat increasing her average by

12 points and Dave increasing his average by 10 points. Kudos to both! We continue to enjoy the new alleys and especially the electronic scoring. Come on over sometime and check them out!

Wednesday night Mixed League, December 7/ Delores Smallwood reported: With it being the holiday season, the Ballbusters did their rendition of “Silent Night,” because all was quiet this past Wednesday at the bowling alley. We could not find a single ‘turkey’ among us all. The ‘Odd Balls’ (Dolores & Don Smallwood) welcome Roseann and Mike Verkeyn to our team. We managed to take one game from the winners so far, ‘Split Happins’ (Ann & Greg Martin, Diana & Bob Bricely). The ‘Bowling Stones’ (Karen & Bob Divita, Kim & Kurt Swigart are catching up to ‘Split Happins.’ They took all eight points from ‘MarkEm’ (Mary & Dave Markle, Beth & Bob Emmons). Maybe next week we can find a peppier tune to associate with, like Holly, Jolly Christmas or Rocking Around the Bowling Alley or Grandma Got Run Over By a Bowling Ball (something like that). Until next week.

Thursday night League, December 8/ Howie Therreault reported:

The Thursday Night BowlingLeague enjoyed their second week of fun-filled competition. The teams 1 & 4 match-up resulted in team 1 scoring 2 points and team 4 with 6 points. In the other pairing of teams 2 & 3, team 2 managed to score all 8 points from team 3. A few of the highlights were Bob Browning with a turkey in the third game, Gaye Berry converting the 2-9-10 split, Gary Shafer the 5-7, and Nancy Swanson the 4-5 splits respectively. Everyone is looking forward to next week’s challenges.

According to Director of Recreation, Pam Royal, for the most part, things are running fairly well from a participant’s perspective. There are still a few issues with pinsetter performance, but those will be resolved when the contractor returns to install the bumper motors. In January we will be purchasing a bowling league operational software program to supplement the current lane operational program. This will allow League directors to electronically manage their leagues if they wish. Training will be provided for both staff and league directors. Watch for the announcement of the open house and official

ribbon cutting ceremony in the next issue. In the meantime, dust off your bowling ball and come out and try the new lanes! Bowling will always be a great way to provide some fun entertainment to visiting family members and friends.•
