Therefore, PLAN ON BOWLING THIS WEEK (Dec. 20th)!!

KEEP WATCHING HERE FOR LATEST INFO... - Don

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 12, UPDATE:

It seems, what we've been keeping our fingers crossed against (i.e. Bowling Alley catastrophy), is still blocking our efforts to bowl.

Therefore, NO BOWLING AGAIN THIS WEEK (Dec. 13th)!! In spite of all of Hannes Arth's extraordinary efforts trying to find solutions - THANK YOU HANNES! - we find ourselves evermore waiting...

WATCH HERE FOR FURTHER INFO... - Don

Cooler weather is now upon us and we're all FALLing into place!...

With Thanksgiving coming up on the 23rd (4th Thursday in November) we're looking to give you a chance to get your turkey in advance with our Prize Night on the 15th...

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, UPDATE:

We had our Team Captains Meeting this evening, and I've at least gotten the League Schedule set up and available to at least see who you play against on our 1st night.

And by the way, our Player Fee for the evening will start out at 12,50 (50.- per team)...

The rest I'll get to tomorrow...

MONDAY, AUGUST 28, UPDATE:

I have decided to MOVE our Team Captains Meeting to next TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5th, one night before bowling commences on Sept. 6th... (both 7:30PM in the bowling alley..)

This is due mainly to the fact that now my sister, and my brother and his wife, are arriving from the States on Wednesday to be with me to help with arrangements for the Sally's funeral on Friday morning, and staying on then thru to Tuesday. - Don

HOWEVER, with great sadness, I have to relate that my wonderful wife of the past 50 years, Sally, unfortunately passed away just yesterday afternoon, and I am NUMB and just at the beginning of adjusting to it, so please bear with me for a bit longer until I can report back in here... Don

Summer break... ('til late August)...
