Bowling Alleygations | Week 1 ~ September 12, 2022 The 103rd edition of the St. Louis Rotary Bowling League commenced on Monday September 12th at the spotlessly clean Olivette Lanes. Bowling by the 24 Rotarians followed the singing of God Bless America, led by our own Ralph Decker. Please keep to the terry cloth selling Ralph!
One new Rotarian bowler, Dee Baebler and two old veteran bowlers returned to the lanes, David “Cowbell’s” Cowell and Jon Soifer. Welcome!
Now onto the action, or lack thereof, On Lanes 15-16 the Werner Bunch led by Ralph’s 242, 639 scratch series hammered the Weiss Guys 20-2. One can only wonder how the Weiss Guys, with the 2nd High scratch team game and First in team scratch series end up with only 2 points on the night? It is a HANDICAP LEAGUE dumbo!
On 17-18 the “George” Milne Pete team, led by Don Fuller’s 246 hdcp game and 668 hdcp series, (see, the handicap league thingie again), and Rick Tinucci’s 506 scratch series, handled the Conway’s 20-2. That puts the Milne’s and Werner’s in a tie for 1st place after week one.
On Lanes 19-20 the Lorenz’s and Soifer’s battled it out in a very close match with the Lorenz’s prevailing 12-10.
Our resident 86 year old Bob Barnes was in the house bowling in his 59th year of Rotary Bowling. Still doing the “Newsy Shuffle”
Rick Tinucci won the $52 50/50 jack pot.
See you all next time, Strikes & Spares, Matt Weiss
