In game one John Krone finished with a 290 and Yolanda Walsh a 276. In the second game Karen Hunter bowled a 261 and Linda roach a 269. The third game Novora Nush recorded a 269, Janie Schropp with a 288, Don Surdich a 290 and Bob Simons first place with a 317.
We have a few of our members who might have cashed in the final payout that will be combined from all three squads and be announced this week and have their checks in a week or two.
Krone was on a roll as he scratched out a 773 and a handicap series of 863. He should be in the running for some cash. Up next for no-tappers will be at Yosemite Lanes this Friday at 1 p.m. It is a 9-pin no-tap and the cost is $13, which includes your high games for men and women. There is no pot-luck lunch at Yosemite. See ya there.
