Relay for Life tourney a success
The American Cancer Society and Relay for Life scotch doubles tournament attracted a field of 24 bowlers on Sunday.
The participants enjoyed an afternoon of bowling in this fun format while supporting a very worthy cause. Partners alternate rolling a ball in scotch doubles, which meant a bowler had to try to pick up the spare if his/her partner did not bowl a strike. There was a lot of good-natured kidding when the first bowler in a frame left a difficult split for the partner.
The duo of Randy Burgess and Brandon Simpson bowled an outstanding score of 760 for three games to win the competition. Kymmi and Bill Bowles finished second with a score of 594, and Tina Hisle and Luke Sullivan placed third with a 558 total.
The winners selected prizes from a group of items which had been donated by local businesses. Several door prizes were also awarded.
