However, saying this, if you want to make sure your results get the publications that it deserves, please send me an e-mail to If you just post it on Facebook, I may, or may not see it.

Speaking of No Tap, we have a double report from the Monday Nite No Tap League. Top honors this week go out to Cal Richards, who rolled not one, but two 300 games. Richards’ normal game average is a 193, so he was 107 pins over for each of those games for a total series of 766.

Also rolling 300 games were Joe Davis and Robbie Ketcherside. Ketcherside had series of 747 and 684 while Davis had a 743 series. Terry Jones was able to sneak in there with a 722.
