The 2012-2013 bowling season is now upon us. It seems like the summer was way too short (and very hot) as always. This writer received very good news after a trip to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. It seems like I don’t have pulmonary fibrosis after all. It is a lung infection which will cure itself over a period of time. Very happy over that.
Scores have been very good for the first week of bowling. Brian Moore started it off on Sunday Nite Keglers with a 279, 268, and 189 for a 736 series. The following Sunday night Nick Turner had a 279, 299, and 195 for a 773 series. What is in store for this week: Brian Moore had 14 strikes in a row over 2 games (a Andy Varipappa 300 Game). Way to go Brian.
Want to make a difference in the life of a youth bowler? Become a volunteer coach. There is a free coaching seminar in Butte Oct. 13 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Call Ken at the lanes for more details.
Watch for posters for some exciting promotions coming up at Hi Line Lanes in the next few weeks.
TOURNEY TRAIL: Montana Senior Tournament: Dates are Oct. 5, 6, 7 and 12, 13, 14 and 19, 20, 21, at Pick’s Bowling Center in Big Fork. Entry forms are available at the lanes. The John Willey Tournament is questionable as Littles Lanes had a water break and are closed right now. Let’s hope they get everything dried out.
Annual Jamboree is in Missoula this year, Sept. 28-30. Registration forms are available at the desk. Just ask, must be in by Sept. 21. Havre has been asked to host this in a year or so. If anyone is interested in working to get this annual event here, please contact Ken.
