Club Meeting Jan 2019

Posted Feb-06-19 at 6:49 PM By racine

Our club meeting and membership drive was a great success! We managed 5 new members, and had a great time bowling no-tap!We did vote in the new 21 game average system. What this means is that we will use the last 21 games as your average, regardless of what season those last 21 games were played. This will prevent wild changes in your average at the start of each 'season'. This is a perfectly valid way of doing average according the USBC.

Club Pins

Posted Oct-27-16 at 4:52 PM By Dennis

We need to order new 200 pins for the club, so we've been looking into to get our old 'gold pan' pin re-created as the original producers of the pin are no longer in business. As such we've found someone that can re-create our existing 200 pin, but we were also offered a 'new' style pin that we really like, so we're looking for some feedback. The cost seems to be pretty close so that isn't really a factor...

Posted Oct-23-15 at 4:32 PM By Anthony

Hello everyone,

I just have a few things so I will make this short. Thank you to everyone that bowled yesterday 10/12/14 against Sutter Creek. We had a nice time and we won 3 out of the 4 matches. This puts us at 16 and 8 for our new season. Thanks to everyone that brought food and helped with cards, ticket sales, and clean up.

Our next match is this SATURDAY at 1:00 pm in Sutter Creek. They will be serving us lunch at 12:30 pm so please arrive accordingly. I am in need of a couple bowlers for this Saturday. If you can bowl please contact me as soon as possible I have to send them our line up no later than Wednesday night of this week.

Do to unavoidable situations I am in need of 2 bowlers for out match against Winnemucca on Oct. 25th & 26th. Please let me know if you can help the club and bowl.

Lastly, there seems to be a problem with club members not receiving my emails or calls. Can everyone please take a moment and respond to this email so I know who is getting my emails and who I need to get new ones from. Also could you please update your phone number please.

See you this Saturday in Sutter Creek,

Anthony

Sept 2015: Recap

Posted Sep-22-15 at 4:08 PM By Anthony

Thank you everyone for another great weekend of bowling. We had 10 matches this weekend against Winnemucca and we won 7 out of 10. That is absolutely fantastic. Not only did we win 7 of the matches but from what I could tell everyone had a fun time. Thank you everyone who helped set up / put away our stuff. Thank you Bob for getting the coffee all set up Saturday night for our Sunday morning match (I forgot it). Thank you JOY for attending the match even though you could not bowl and for handling the cards, strike pot, and 50/50 pot. Thank you George & Carla for doing the announcing. Thank you Bob for all your extra help trying to fix lanes 21 & 22, it was greatly appreciated. Thank you to Steffi/Frank, Cindi/Dennis, & Janeen for bringing the donuts, cookies, & the HOME made cookies & cupcakes/muffins. Everything tasted great. If I forgot to thank anyone I am sorry and please let me know.

FYI, our club has had 20 matches since the start of the new season and we are 13 & 7!!!!!! That is awesome. Let's keep it going.

Our Match against Winnemucca on Oct. 25-26, 2014 is approaching quickly and I am still in need of at least 6 more bowlers. Please if you could attend the match please let me know A.S.A.P. They brought 5 teams to our house and I need to take at least 4 teams to their house. Everyone that attended last year had a good time and they are a fun team to bowl with.

Finally, but very important I have set a date of December 13th & 14th of this year with Foothill Bowl for Our Match club to host our 1st Annual Christmas NO Tap Bowling Tournament. We will be inviting all the clubs we bowl with and also we will be including anyone that has a current league average from other leagues and houses in the area. The cost for this tournament will be $20.00 per day. The prize fund is being worked out still but $10.00 of each days entry fee will go to the prize fund. We will have a separate prize fund for each day. The tournament will be singles with an option to bowl doubles for an additional $ 10.00 fee per team side pot. The doubles prize money will be 100% of funds raised from doubles entry fee. The handicap will be 100% of 220. This should give everyone a fair chance. We will have a 50 / 50 pot with half the funds going to the club. Bob is creating the flyer so please watch for it for the rest of the details. This tournament IS NOT A REQUIRED MATCH TO ATTEND. But our club is hosting it so I am hoping we have a strong showing from our club. There will be no fines or pay frames in this event. If attending please represent our club by wearing your shirts. There will be more details to come. We are trying to raise a little money for the club through entry fees and the 50 / 50 pot and hopefully generate interest so we can gain new members. Bob and I are in need a volunteers to help. Please if you can help contact Bob or myself. Please put these dates on your calendar. I will be updating everyone as we go along. We have a goal of 60 bowlers with space for 80 bowlers. The more bowlers the higher the prize money. This event should be a lot fun! Please R.S.V.P. and soon as you can. Any questions please email me at anthonyhengel@yahoo.com or call me at 916-470-5011

Thank you,

Anthony Hengel
