The Senior Mixed Tournament was great this year. Reedsport Lanes did an awesome job. All squads ran smoothly. Their staff was friendly and helpful, always smiling and attending to any bowlers needs that may have been required.
The weather was spectacular. Every day in the 70’s. Beautiful sunshine and fans to keep the bowlers cool. Reedsport was the place to be that weekend.
The Reedsport USBC WBA is an amazing group of women. 11 members were there each day for all 7 squads. They put together a great raffle table (raising $301 for BVL), kept scores and cheered on every bowler along with assisting this novice tournament director.
There were 157 participants that bowled in one or more of the 8 events.
The 3 special events were: The Merry Mixer Doubles, which was won by Grace Murphy and Gary Liedtke with a score of 1380; the Scotch Doubles won by Mable Peterson and Pete Frelich scoring 702; and the Swinging Singles (game 1 was a 9 pin no tap, game 2 had automatic strikes in the 3rd, 6th and 9th frames, and game 3 was an 8 pin no tap), which was won by David Batchelor with a 910. There were several 300 games bowled during these special games. That last strike was just as stressful and exciting as an authentic 300.
The Mens Singles was won by Vince Fiattarone bowling 708. Womens Singles won by Jan Chambers who bowled 738. Mens Doubles was won by Larry Gunn/Bob Del Re who bowled 1398. Womens Doubles was won by Janet Batchelor/Frances Rothauge bowling 1319. The Mixed Doubles winners were Frances Rothauge/Francis Rothauge bowling 1395.
Check the OSUSBC website for the dates and location (TBA )for 2014. This is a very fun tournament.
Thank you to everyone who bowled, volunteered and worked hard to make this a successful tournament. OSUSBC looks forward to seeing everyone next year.
