BOWLING: Terrific week for Simpson at Galaxy

RICHMOND — Brandon Simpson bowled three 700 series last week (775, 745 and 711). John Hickam (789), Lewis Jones Jr. (768) and Mike E. Bryant (726) also rolled a 700 series.

Hickam and Jones Jr. narrowly missed bowling a 300 game with score of 290 and 289, respectively.

Narita Rose bowled the high women’s game for the week (217) and Regina Barton the best women’s series (583).

Dause Memorial Tournament set for Sunday

The second-annual Lemetta Dause Memorial Tournament will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday. Lemetta, an avid bowler and member of Galaxy’s 600 Club for women, succumbed to cancer in December 2011.

The tourney will use the 3-6-9 format in which bowlers are awarded free strikes in the third, sixth and ninth frames and the no-tap format in which nine pins down with the first ball in a frame counts as a strike.

The entry fee is $20 to bowl four games.

The proceeds will be donated to Hospice Care Plus in Lemetta’s honor.

Prizes will be awarded to the winners and numerous door prizes will be awarded.

Any business or individual who would like to contribute to Hospice Care Plus through this tournament by donating a prize or money may contact Harvey Poynter at 582-4764 or Beverly Shearer at 625-4130.
