BOWLING: Dause Memorial Tourney set for March 23

RICHMOND — The third-annual Lemetta Dause Memorial Tournament is scheduled for Sunday, March 23, at 2 p.m.

Lemetta, an avid bowler and a member of Galaxy’s 600 club for women, succumbed to cancer in December 2011. Proceeds from this  tourney will be donated to Hospice Care Plus in Lemetta’s honor.

The tournament will use the 3-6-9 and no-tap formats. Bowlers are awarded free strikes in the third, sixth and ninth frames, and nine pins down with the first ball in a frame counts as a strike. The entry fee is $20 to bowl four games. All bowlers are welcome.

Prizes will be awarded to the winners, and numerous door prizes will be awarded. There will also be a silent auction.

Any business or individual who would like to contribute to Hospice by donating door prizes, or items for the silent auction, may contact Harvey Poynter at 582-4764 or Beverly Shearer at 625-4130.

Cash donations are also welcome.
