He very capably “filled in” as a fourth, with three bowlers from Regina (Candice Chura, Charlene Curtis, and Quinn Materna).

Congratulations Mike !!


Orest Kryschuk – 100 Pins Over Average

Congratulations to Orest Kryschuk for rolling a new career-high game of 277, and with that, exactly 100 pins over his average!  This earns him a watch from CTF.

On November 30th, in the Red White & Blue League at Chateau Lanes, Kryshcuk started the day with his 277 game and then followed it up with games of 183 and 187, for a series total of 647.

Well Done Orest !!

Jon Snyder is on Fire !

Jon Snyder has just reached another career milestone – his first 800 series !

While bowling in the MCBA 4-game scratch sweeper on December 9, 2018 at Chateau Lanes, Snyder’s first three games were 279, 297, and 226, for a total of 802 !

Just over 4 weeks ago, Snyder rolled his first career perfecto, so he is definitely on a roll!

Oh, by the way, his 4th game of the sweeper was a 230, for a total of 1030, giving him the victory in the tournament too!

Congratulations Jon !!

Jordon Budge – 125 Pins Over Average

Jordon Budge had a good night – in fact, his BEST night, while bowling in the 59’ers League at Chateau Lanes on Wednesday, Dec 5, 2018.  Budge took up the sport this year, for the first time. And is steadily making progress.

On this night, his improvement was clearly visible, as he put together his best series so far, and even had his first “turkey” during the night.

Budge, whose average was 117, rolled scores of 177, 143, and 156 for a series total of 476, which was exactly 125 pins over his average for the night!

That’s one milestone achieved, and more to come, we’re sure.

Congratulations Jordon !!

Lorna Lisowski – First Career 500 Series

Congratulations to Lorna Lisowski, who rolled her first career 500 series on Wednesday, Dec 5, 2018 at Chateau Lanes in the 59’ers League.

Lisowski, a left-hander who started the night  with a 129 average, bowled games of 195, 138, and 179, for a 512 series, which was 125 pins over her average as well!  To make it even more difficult on her, a lane breakdown in the 2nd game caused a 20-minute delay, followed by a move to another pair of lanes.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going !

Jonathan Snyder – 300 Game

Jonathon Snyder – First Career 300

A huge congratulations to Jonathon (Jon) Snyder, who rolled the first perfect game of his career.  It happened on Tuesday, November 6th, in his 3rd game of the night in the Winnipeg Senior Men’s League at Laverendrye Lanes.  What makes it more remarkable is that our league changes lanes every game, so he threw those 12 strikes without having had the benefit of any practice shots on that pair of lanes beforehand.  By the way, that pair of lanes was 13 & 14, which are known to be quite difficult.

Snyder’s games were 238, 259, 300, and 226 for a 4-game series of 1023!  And if you do the arithmetic, he had a 3-game series of 797 – just 3 pins short of an 800 series!

Snyder, is a “no-thumber”, and is a lefty who throws with a lot of revs and speed.  His last three strikes in the 10th were all picture-perfect.

Well done Jon !!!

Rob Dufreane – 299 Game

Dufreane Rolls a 299 !!

Rob Dufreane came out of the gate hot, starting with the first 11 strikes in his first game of the night in the 59’ers League at Chateau Lanes on Wed, Oct 24th.  On his 12th shot, it wasn’t meant to be.  He hit the pocket, but the 10-pin remained standing, leaving him with a 299 game.

Dufreane has had 5 perfect games in his career, so the feeling wasn’t new to him in the 10th. “It felt great off my hand, and I knew it had a chance, but it didn’t seem to face up like the other ones” he said.

Great bowling Rob !!
