BOWLING: Bulans Bowl to host a couple’s no-tap tournament

DANVILLE — We have yet another tournament coming up this weekend. A couple’s no-tap tourney is being held at Bulans Bowl on Saturday night at 7:30. The cost is $30 a couple.

Just a reminder, at Fast Lanes, on Nov 21, there will be a 7-8-9 No tap tourney, and you will be able to throw out one game. It is singles, and there will be both men and ladies divisions.

Hey, got a question to ask you. Are you a bowler who likes to clean your bowling ball down at the center during competition?

Did you know the cleaner’s odor is not only offensive to some, but harmful? Maybe we can be courteous to our fellow bowlers, and clean the ball away from the bowling area. That way, we can help someone breathe a bit easier.

All right, I know you want this week’s results, so let’s get to them. The Monday Nite Church No-Tappers had this report — Jimmy Scruggs not only had a 739 series, but a 300 game as well. Terry Jones rolled a 279 game, on his way to a 699 series. Other bowlers with games 50 or more pins over their averages included Scott Cunningham 244 (57); Albert Syass 233 (76); U Pete Williams 240 (71); Karen Hoskins 231 (52); Karen Lane 176 (64) and Lynnse Gondzur 186 (51).

The Monday Nite League at Bulans had the following split conversions this week: Sandi Burke picked up the 4-10, Cindy Davenport, the 6-7-10, and Kevin Bennett got the 3-7-10.

Can you believe I actually forgot the Tuesday Nite Go-Getters last week. Yep, so we have a double report this week. On Oct 30th, Greg Miller rolled a 244, 78 pins over his average. Joe Blagg shot a 218, 53 pins over his, and Maggie Birge shot 50 pins over to garner a 191. Looking at split conversions, looks as if the 5-10 was rather easy for the Always Late team, as Bub, Charlie, and Dot Tiffin, Maggie Birge and Houston Key all converted it, as well as Sherry Castongue. Jon Castle had picked up the 3-10, 5-7, as well as the 2-7-8. Birge also picked up the 4-9. Also picking up the 3-10 were Sue Strong, and Dot McDaniel, not once, but twice. Harl Miller lassoed the 5-8-10, while Greg Miller picked up the 5-6.

In the TLC League at Bulans on Tuesday evenings, Jerry Sims shot a 278, with a 712 series, while Kristen Duke rolled 56 pins over her average for a 210 game.

Looked as if some of the senior bowlers were warming up for last weekend’s tourney. Jim Thomas was 53 pins over average with a 213, John Ramsey threw a 236, 53 pins over, Phil Stultz, 57 pins over for a 199, Houston Key tapped out a 225, 67 pins over, while a newcomer this year to the league, Michelle Williams threw 67 pins over her game average for a 177 game.

Speaking of the Senior Tourney, we should have the results soon, and we will let you know if any of our local group placed. Judy Gebhart did knock out the 4-5-7.

Covington’s Early Friday evening league had some great results from four bowlers.

Art Wagoner shot a 257, 60 pins over his average, which helped to achieve a 646 series. Paul Priebe rolled 50 pins over his average for a 187. Mike Dunavan rolled 52 pins over his average for a 235, and a 672 series, while Beth Barnes shot 51 pins over her average for a 190 game.

The Friday Nite Mixed League once again had some great scores. Jerrad Reed rolled an exciting 290 game, 11 strikes in a row, and also rolled a 255, for a 756 series. Rich McFarland had a 259 game, and Terrence Cloyd had a 256 game included in his 686 series. Scott Reinken had a 725 series including a 254 game, while Danny Lazzell rolled a 260 game. Nicole Brown and Brandi Welsch both had a 236 game. Brown had a 641 series. The following bowlers rolled 50 or more pins over their averages: Mike Camarata 202 (59); Joe Rich 227 (58); Jon Cox 205 (55); Eric Crockett 232 (59); Wayne Brown Sr. 245 (59); Ryan Smith 213 (54); Shawn Tietz 236 (62); and Teddy Cater 244 (59).

Please submit all reports before midnight on Mondays.
