Bowling Trip to Columbia, MO April 16, 2022
Week 31 Alleygations: April 22, 2024

Columbia Bowling Trip 4-16-24 and Week 31 Alleygations | Captain Matt Weiss - Buddha!!


Columbia Bowling trip vs. KC
The satisfaction of kicking KC’s butt gets better every year. Never gets old.
They are like the little sister or brother that feels they are constantly picked on,
running to Mommy or Daddy begging for redemption. Only in this case, there
wasn’t any Mommy or Daddy! Big brother/Sister just kicked your ass! The whiners
claim cheating from their elder siblings. We Rotarians do not cheat.
St. Louis had 20 bowlers. KC arrived with 19. Maybe they had five Rotarians?
Five teams from each bowling three games to vie for the coveted trophy.
After the first round of bowling St. Louis led three games to two in very tight
St. Louis was leading 3 games to 1 in the second round with the last game
coming down to the last frame. Katie LaMarsh rolls a strike to win the game
by two pins giving St. Louis a 7-3 lead moving to the 3rd round. That was huge.
St. Louis proceed to go 4-1 in the third round, shellacking KC for a total of 11-4.
Wade Westreitch bowled a 213 game in the second round, (having a 113 average)
for the only 200 plus game rolled for St. Louis. KC had a 203 game from their non
Rotarian leader and cry babying accuser of falsified St. Louis averages. Really
makes this victory that much sweeter. AND, hopefully not for the last time, the
Lanes were entertained by the NEWSEY shuffle, rolling his only strike of the day
in his final toss! Hooray yelled the St. Louis faithful!!! From the bus ride up, until
into the bowling and celebration home St. Louis Bowlers were fired up. A GREAT
GREAT TIME was had once again! We missed you Rosie!
