The women have two sessions left in the season, one of which will be tonight. The standings I have are a week behind and are as follows: 1st: Gallery Lounge, 2nd (Tie): Bud Light and K-Lines, 4th: Box Cars, 5th: Generation 3, 6th: Florens Hill County Printing, 7th: RPM'S, 8th: So-So Close, 9th: Mariani Insurance, 10th: Valley Furniture. If I understood right, first place is now tied as of last week. It would be interesting to know the outcome but this one is out
of gas and news.

As I stated before, this has been one interesting season. I'm plum out of the bowling notion, have been for quite some time now. I hope our summer is long and I can convince myself I want to pick up a bowling ball, throw it, and make a complete fool of myself once again when September comes around. I'm quite sure I'll be there because after all, you will and I want to see you.
Have a great summer. Thanks for joining me for another season, I just hope come fall, it's our season.
