“You call a bowling ball a bowling ball until you drop one on your foot!”
There comes a time when every bowler must make that hard decision it’s time to quit. In most cases, the decision is not made because of age but because of injury. It’s with great sadness that the time has come for a very dear friend and teammate, Apple Brown. I have bowled with her and against her for nearly forty years and what a pleasure it has been. Apple I will miss you at bowling, we all will, but we will still see you around town. Four-year-olds, Reece Miller and Quinn McDonald had a 47 and an 89, respectively in the PeeWees. Five-yearolds Tyrel Kjersam, Haley Nitz and Ashlynee Brandon shot 57, 66 and 66, respectively. Seven-year-old Brady Ophus hit an 88. The PeeWees will bowl this Sunday at their regular time.

There will be no league bowling on Sunday for the Havre Youth, but as stated before the PeeWees will bowl. Holden’s Scotch Doubles will run two shifts at 1 and 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Bantams will bowl three games at a cost of $8 and all others will pay $10 for four games. A tentative date has been set for “The Dewey No-Tap.” As of now, we are looking at March 3-4, one week after the last scheduled league day. We are also looking at March 18 for the Youth banquet. Women’s State entry blanks are at the lanes. If you bowled at Rudyard or Big Sandy last year and recorded 21 games or more your end of the year average should be on your membership card.
