An impressive honor score was missed with the absence of last week’s column in the paper.
During Thursday’s Outcasts league on the day after Christmas, Travis Burkhart had games of 255, 290 and 267 to end the night with an 812 series. This milestone score took over top spot on the season-long series leaderboard for that league.
