Christmas tournament set for Sunday
The Madison County Bowling Association’s annual Christmas no-tap tournament will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday. Nine pins down with the first ball in a frame counts as a strike in no-tap competition.
Bowlers will be given a ticket for each strike bowled. Bowlers whose tickets are drawn at the conclusion of the tournament will select one of 12 unmarked envelopes containing an amount ranging from $5 to $50.
The entry fee is $15 to bowl three games. All bowlers are eligible to participate.
Lunch and bowl with Santa
Bowlers are invited to enjoy two hours of bowling, a large pizza, a pitcher of soft drink and a photo with Santa from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday at Galaxy. The cost is $30 per lane for up to 6 bowlers.
A Santa photo only is available for $9.99, or free with the purchase of a $25 Galaxy gift card.
Four men rolled a 700 series in this league last Monday. Randy Burgess led the members of the league with a 715 series and 279 game. John Hickam was second in both measures with a 714 series and 269 game, while Glenn Masters was next with a 701 series and 265 game.
Substitute Brandon Simpson topped all the league members with a 751 series and 290 game. Simpson fell just short of a perfect score as he followed an opening frame spare in his third game with 11 consecutive strikes.
Simpson’s game score ties him with Mike E. Bryant for third on the season leaderboard behind only the 300 games rolled by Hickam and Ron Gugel.
A 600 series was bowled at this session by Todd Young (682), Cody Dapkus (655), Bruce Watson (652), Aaron Rose (650), Mike E. Bryant (642), Ron Gugel (633), Mark Rogers (632), Barry Miller (616) and Cody Daly (609).
Regina Barton led the ladies in the league with a 628 series, which included a 259 game. Her 259 score is the second-highest women’s game bowled at Galaxy this season.
This league will complete the fall season tonight. X-Factor (Todd Young, Gary Cromer and Jack and Anthony Taulbee) has a 2 1/2 game lead over Ridge Runners (Eric Huff, Scott Kaylor and Regina and Shawn Barton) entering the final night of action.
The top two teams will meet in a head-to-head match to determine the league champion.
Two other teams — Big Ass Fans (Keith Nash, Dallas Thomas, Mike E. Bryant and Brandon Lutes) and Lucky #13 (Matt Ciolek, Ray White and Cody and Paul Dapkus) — can finish as high as second depending upon the outcome of the match between the top two teams, but they cannot collect enough wins to finish first.
