Bowlers roll with the set up
This helps prepare bowlers for other competition plus forces all the bowlers to learn to adjust from month to month with their personal abilities.
During some months, the league bowlers appear to have the shot figured out while others many of the local bowlers will struggle for the entire month. It appears that way for the shot in February – but at least one bowler figured it out early.
On Feb. 6, Drew Johnson rolled a perfect game in the Shelor Toyota Moose League. The NRV SuperBowl congratulates him for his 300 score.
Other bowlers in league action who excelled were Ronnie Horton, Derek Wingfield and Kerry Hamblin with games of 279, 277 and 276 respectively. Wingfield had the high series with a 748 while the supremely talented Horton added a 713 series.
Johnson also had the January shot figured out as the ended the month in the Shelor Toyota Men’s League with a 780 series. Richard Fairley Jr. had the high score in the Jan. 30 session with a 289 game.
Traveling mostly from Pulaski County proved to be little problem for many of the bowlers in the Light and Lively Senior League on Jan. 31.
This league, which is comprised mainly of bowlers from that part of the New River Valley, was led on the men’s side by a trio of solid performances.
Garnett Byrd had the high game with a 202 score while Henry Byrd and Glen Watson added games of 192 and 186 respectively.
May Dishon, Evelyn Wilson and Shelby Wood battled for high game honors among the ladies. Dishon edged Wilson by two pins with her 169 game. Wood added a 162 game to join the trio of top ladies.
In season play, Bruce Webb has the high game with a 246 score. Henry Byrd’s 212 and Garnett Byrd’s 202 round out the top three games of the 2012-13 season.
Among the women, Evelyn Wilson, Shelby Wood and Wilma Dalton have the highest individual games in league play. The SuperBowl is pleased to welcome back these Pulaski County bowlers to the lanes at the Christiansburg center.
There were an assortment of outstanding league high games in the past two weeks. James Smith Jr. paced the Tuesday Coffee League with a score of 253 on Feb. 5. Belinda Horney had the high game among the women with her 203 score.
Jackson Demere and Brad Phillips tied for high game honors in the Dixie League on Feb. 4 with scores of 253. Roger Dice had a 244 game to join in the top echelon of scores.
The SuperBowlin’ Ladies League,w which competes on Monday evenings, was witness to a trio of solid games. Alyson Peoples, Jane Wimmer and Susan Harris were atop the leaderboard. People had the high game with a 187 tally.
The center’s largest senior league is the Up and At ’Em. With 30 teams competing on a weekly basis, the competition is high for top weekly honors.
On Feb. 6, Ren Hollandsworth had high games of 244 and 216 on his way to a series total of 617. Sandwiched between Hollandsworth games was a 219 scored recorded by Rodna Duncan, who is one of the top senior bowlers at the center.
This year’s Muscular Dystrophy Association’s Bowl-A-Thon is set for Feb. 23. If you have ever thought about bowling in a tournament but didn’t feel talented enough (aka Randy Thompson) to compete, this is the event for you to begin.
With February being National Heart Month, this is an excellent opportunity to give back to a worthwhile charity. “You don’t have to be a great bowler, just have a great heart” is the slogan for this event.
There will be two, 51-inch flat screen televisions given away to each squad.
The tournament, which is open to the public, will also include many other prizes including a two night stay in Las Vegas. The tournament will be made up of 4 person teams and have squads at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on the 23rd.
The SuperBowl, Deli Mart and Wade’s Foods are the sponsors for the event and are looking forward to the area supporting this charitable endeavor. I look forward to seeing many of you out there for this special day. If you would like complete details, you can call the SuperBowl for complete details at 382-5525.
Until next time, good bowling to everyone!!!
-Randy Thompson, special to The Burgs
