“Playing through a bowling slump is like going through a maze. It may not seem like it, but there really is a way out!”
The pots for Jackpot bowling continue to grow. The fun night of bowling is held every Saturday at 8 p.m. Call 265-5885 for reservations. Did you ever notice the board that listed the 300-games bowled at Hi-Line Lanes? Have you noticed it is gone? Ken and Faye Brubaker felt those honored bowlers needed a lot more than what they were listed on. So they have donated an elegant plaque listing each bowler and the date, if known that they bowled their 300- game. You may find the plaque by the door leading to the pro shop. Thanks Ken and Faye. Speaking of the pro shop Ken has a machine that will refinish your ball and make it last longer. The balls today are much softer and the finish tends to wear much faster. This process gives you back a new ball that will help with consistent scoring. Ken also drills new balls and plugs and redrills old ones. Daniel Almas and Megan Erickson had the Bantam highs. Daniel shot a 66, 62 and 128 series and Megan rolled a 72, 46 and 118 series. Cold Schlotfeldt had a 59-game and 100-series, Tracer Nitz a 104- series; Jacey McDonald a 31-game and 55- series and Kiara Christianson a 53-series.
