Winter Leagues

Branch 19 SIR League – Branch 19 (Concord) sponsors a SIR league at Clayton Valley Bowl.  There are ten four-person teams.  Ladies are welcome.  We bowl every Wednesday morning starting at 10 AM.  The league is over for the 2016-2017 season.  The 2017-2018 will start on September 6, 2017.  

14 Stink’n Pins.  The great playoff between the first half winners (300WannaBees) played the second half winners (The Silver Foxes).  The WannaBees (with Branch 8 members Tom Barnidge and Dan Weller) easily won the first game mostly due to Dan Weller’s 258 game. The Silver Foxes won the second game by 40 pins. 

The winner-take-all third game went to the 10th frame with the Silver Foxes leading by 14 pins.  Then a very odd series of events happened: each bowler scored the same as his counterpart on the other team.  It got down to the last bowlers in the anchor position and the score difference was still 14 pins.  Dan bowled a strike, then a ringing 10-pin which he picked up.  His opponent also shot a strike and a spare, so the final score had the Silver Foxes winning the league.
