Openings for City Senior Tournament still available

DANVILLE — The City Senior Tourney is still scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. There are still openings, and I would love to see this tourney packed out.

If you are 50 years of age or over, you qualify. This is a handicap tourney, and your last year’s average will be used to determine how much handicap you will get.

The first three games will be bowled at Bulans, with the last three being rolled at Lincoln Lanes. The top five bowlers at the end of play at Lincoln’s will compete in a step ladder roll off to determine the champion.

League Reports

The Monday Nite No-Tappers at Lincoln Lanes are submitting their last report. Terry Jones rolled a 730 series including a 265 game. Sharon Craft topped out with a 638 series, while Karen Hoskins bowled a 646 series, which included a 240 game.

Other No Tappers achieving 50 or more pins over average were Mike Jett with a 235 — 51 pins over his 181 norm; Robbie Ketcherside rolled a 264, 50 pins over; Joe Davis was also 50 pins over with a 244; Leean Palmer also rolled a 240, which was 96 pins over; Pam Jones had a 230, 64 pins over her 166 average; Mallory Buss shot a 193, 62 pins over; Essie Syass was 53 over with a 189.

This year’s league Champions were the Pretty Boys, consisting of Miles Clark, Mike Jett, Brock Dieu, Matt Myers and Rick Goben (alternating), and Robbie Ketcherside. Submitting the reports each week was Nancy Goodner.

No report from the Monday Morning Ladies League in Westville, however Laura Baird did the submittals, and we thank her for that.

This year’s championship team was Phylar Collectibles, consisting of Martha Hance, Martha Hargan, Phyllis Rutan, and Alicia Rouse. Also from time to time, we heard from Don Coan and the Tuesday Nite League at Bulans, and Doug Wagner in Hoopeston. Thanks gentlemen for your help.

Speaking of Bulans, the Monday Nite Mixed league rolled their final frames of the season. Rachel Watkins had 62 pins over her average of 129 as she bowled a 191; Bruce Shepherd rolled a 204, 58 pins over, while Connie Williams finished out with a 211, 59 pins over her average.

Cindy’s Big Rascals, consisting of Nick Grubb, Evan Davis, Brent Honn and Kevin Bennett, were declared this year’s league champions. Thanks to Linda Chittick for her reports.

The Tuesday Nite Go Getters are next, with Bill McDaniel reporting.

Charlie Tiffin rolled a 207, 59 pins over average. Houston Key picked up the 4-5 split, Di Summers the 5-6, Dick Lamb the 2-10 and Bub Tiffin with the 5-7.

Now in the hard to believe category, some guy named Tuck Miller also picked up the 5-7, and the 2-5-7, and even rolled a 214 game — 70 pins over average.

It was also roll-off nite for the Go Getters where first half winners Wolf Creek rolled against second half winners Yard Store. Wolf Creek was declared the league winners. Team members include Joe and Martha Elliott, Laure Baird, and brothers Greg and Tuck Miller.

The Senior League champs were Safe Water, with the following team members: Keith Carter, Shirley Lamm, Martha Elliott, Phil Stultz, and Stan Harvey.

Bowlers 50 or more pins over were Bill McDaniel with a 222, 73 pins over, Clara Copsey had a 182, 61 pins over, while Stan Harvey finished up with a 244 game, 63 pins over. Reporters for the Senior League were Joe and Meredith Stokes.

Checking in for one last time, were both Friday Nite Leagues. First Covington is telling us that The Brew Crew was this year’s champions, with a team made up of Jessica Barnes, Kevin Barnes, Beth Barnes and Rose Schaeffhold. Rose was our on the spot gal.

Now, heading back west on 74 to Danville, the Lincoln Lanes group’s year end champions are Pop’s Gang. The gang is made up of Georgia Seward, Butch Sanders, Larry Richards Sr., Teresa Cloyd, and Terrence Cloyd. A shout goes out to Jennifer Kile for all her help this year. I sure hope I have not overlooked anyone.

Well, as you may have already figured out, this season has now come to an end. We should start up again towards the end of August, more likely, the first week in September. I would like to thank you, the bowlers. If it weren’t for you, I would have nothing to write about.

Yes, we will try and submit a short paragraph about the Senior tourney this weekend, so be watching for that, as well as any other short bowling alerts.

We wish each of you and you families a great summer, and maybe, we will see you out and about.

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