BOWLING: Dues increase vote is put on hold

DANVILLE — We have an update on the Danville Bowling Association dues increase. After talking with Association President Darren Van Duyn, we have found out that the dues increase vote has been put on hold until another association meeting is held near the end of the bowling season.

Keep your eyes and ears open for the date of that meeting, where once again, you will be given an opportunity to have your voice heard.

There will be an association meeting for board members only at 4:30 p.m. today at Lincoln Lanes.

Want to enter some local tournaments?

Check out the local bowling centers. I believe there are double tourneys every other week at Lincoln, King of the Hill tourneys at some of the centers as well.

Maybe one of the centers can put on a no-tap tourney — might be some fun.

The Monday Nite No-Tappers are still knocking out the high scores. Sharon Craft rolled a 262, which is 62 pins over her average, which helped out her 640 series. Joe Davis had a 707 series including a 255 game, which happens to be 64 pins over his average. Scott Cunningham rolled 79 pins over his normal for a 254. John Nixon was able to top his average by 79 pins for a 208 game. Albert Syass rolled 61 pins above his average to garner a 220. While Louise Cunningham was rolling 74 pins over her average to bowl a 178 game, James Fair was topping his average by 74 pins to get a 160 game.

Had not realized the Tuesday Morning Ladies league had change to Monday mornings, so guess we should start calling them the Monday Morning Ladies league. One of their young ladies picked up the 5-10 split.

The Tuesday Nite Go Getters are picking up some steam as the season progresses. Lacee Bays rolled a 175, 66 pins over her current average. This allowed her to obtain a 430 series which is 103 pins over her current series average. Jon Castle rolled 55 pins over his average for a 205, while Houston Keys was 56 over his normal to garner a 211. Irv Summers picked up the 5-7-9 split.

Senior League bowler Greg Miller was hot again this week, when he rolled a 242. However, Linda Engle topped out for a 495 series, 114 pins over her series average. Marla Troyer rolled a 197, which is 60 pins over her game average. Fred Fultz was 57 pins over his game average. Joe Blagg had the high series for the week with a 629, including games of 234, 215, and a 180. Charlie Graul picked up the 4-7-9 split.

Need to practice up for league or even casual play? Check your local bowling centers to see when they offer open bowling.

Please submit all reports before midnight on Mondays. If you need any more information, drop me a note at illianabowling@gmail.com.

Until next week, let’s have fun and knock ‘em down.
