Dan Tereck spared in the Red White & Blue League on Friday, Nov 15, 2019. Who knew that he was going to have his best 3-game series in many years?
Tereck rolled games of 227, 244, and 279, for a series total of 750! He used his Motiv Venom Shock for much of the 1st game, but then switched to his Game Breaker II, and that’s when things really started happening!
The 279 third game was just a 7-pin short of a perfect game. But Tereck has no complaints. He said that “Even a blind squirrel can find the odd acorn!”.
Congrats Dan !
Lauraine Chatelain had a great night on the lanes in the Lav II League at Laverendrye Lanes, November 11, 2019.
She rolled a 535 series (170, 161 & 204) with her 129 average.
Interestingly, she accomplished this using her 30 year old “Twister” ball.!
Congratulations to Shirley Brown and Arnie Huska for bowling an amazing 100 pins over average in the Lav II League at Laverendrye Lanes. This qualifies them to receive a watch from CTF.
Shirley shot a 250 game (145 average) on October 28, 2019.
Arnie shot a 265 game (164 average) on November 4, 2019.
Awesome bowling Shirley & Arnie!
On October 29th, Jon Snyder rolled his 2nd career sanctioned 300 game.
Bowling in the Winnipeg Senior Men’s League (Winnipeg’s last remaining scratch league), at Laverendrye Lanes, Snyder rolled his perfecto in his 4th game of the night.
This is special because in this league the teams move to a new pair of lanes each game. So that means Snyder had no practice shots on this pair of lanes that already had 3 games bowled on it by other teams. Quite a feat!
Congratulations Jon !!
In the Golfer’s League at Chateau Lanes, on October 19th, Austyn Ducharme bowled his highest series ever, and it included a 300 game as well.
On lanes 7 & 8, he rolled games of 257, 267, and 300 for a series total of 824! Ducharme said that he used his DV8 Misfit ball for the entire series.
This was his 3rd career perfect game. We expect there will be more!!
Well done Austyn !
