The first half of competition in three leagues concluded at Hood River’s Orchard Lanes last week. In the “what else is new” department, Nobi’s prevailed in the ladies Tuesday Morning Workshirkers league.
Bowling for Nobi’s are local legends Shirley Thornhill, Nina Kruckenberg, Charlotte Severns and Nancy Asai. It seems like Nobi’s has ruled the Workshirkers for decades! More “R” Better took the first half in the Wednesday afternoon senior Colts & Fillies league. Kegling for More “R” Better are Garna Arnell, Sue Spellman, Doug Arnell and the ferocious John Lyon. And Queen n’ Two Jacks squeaked a first half win in the Thursday afternoon senior Lads & Lassies league. Bowling for Queen n’ Two Jacks are Jolene Randall, Phil Wilson and Len Allen.
Andrew Hoffman and Bob Mason starred in the most pins over average department last week. We may have a great new talent in the Thursday County league where Andrew has been showing steady improvement this season. Last week, Andrew definitely had the pins on the run as he fired beautiful scratch 236,219 and 210 games for a cool 665 series which was a whopping 152 pins over his average, tops in town last week. Keep that up Andrew, and you will soon join the elite in Hood River! Bob also put together a nice run in the very popular Tuesday Nite Mixed league. Bob notched scratch 223,217 and 208 games for a nifty 648 series which was 114 pins over his average.
In the top scores department last week, two of our best led the parade of big shooters. Our local pro, Jeff Miller, put the pins to sleep with a spiffy scratch 279 game and 737 series in the Wednesday evening Fraternal league.
Our favorite umpire, Ken Kramer, called 11 out of 12 strikes in the Industrial to finish just one stick back in the high game department with a major league 278 game.
And our newest star in town, young Chad Mason, also cracked the 700 mark for the umpteenth time this season with a scratch 706 series in the mixed league.
Has Chad been giving his dad Bob some lessons or vice-a-versa?
Great bowling and Happy Holidays to everyone!
