"Once upon a time, bowlers bought rare brightly colored bowling balls so they could pick out their own from the rack filled with black balls. Now it's the plain black ball that stands out in the midst of all the others!"
Shawn Mariani and Art Olson left the strike pot at $40, pill $40, and YABA $12, after Shawn got seven in a row for $15 and Art five in a row for $5. Jackpot Gary invites everyone out for his fun night every Saturday at 8 p.m.
YABA begins their season this Saturday, the 30th. Sign-up was held last week, but it's never too late to join. If interested, call Hi-Line Lanes at 265-5885 for more info.
The Bud Light Traveling League starts in October with Havre hosting in November. No further info is available at this time but if needed, call Missouri River Lanes at Fort Benton.
State entry blanks for Bozeman have arrived and may be found at the lanes. Entry fee has risen to $16 per event and divisions have been reduced to three: 1 - 153 and up; 2 - 137-152; 3 - 136 and under. Entries close 2-1-01, please do not wait, the earlier your entry, the better the chance of getting your first choice.
Ladies, the "200 pins in 2000" are still for the taking. Any 200 game bowled during league play from last January to Dec. 31 earns you this pin. If you have bowled one and not received the pin, contact me as soon as possible. Replacement pins may be purchased for $1.
Happy b-day Edna Teske! Inetia Cantin gains one the 29th and Sandy Cartwright Oct. 1st.
