Denise Miller, $126; Bonnie Carrington, Pancha Melendrez, Ken North and Jay
Samelak with $108 each; and Adm Dilsaver at $90. Thirty-three of the bowlers
earned at least one second place in a bracket.
While those bowlers shared in
more than $2,300, the biggest prize pot for the year-end tournaments will be
presented on Wednesday in the annual Bingo tournament with more than$2,400
being shared by the bowlers eligible to compete

Pam Simon, 27 over for $30; while Pat Ruck was 13 pins over for fourth place

under; Todd Buehrer, Randy Miller League, 27 under; Darryl Ott, American, seven
pins under; and Jay Haas, Eagles, with 10 pins over average. In week 23, those

bolwers, Pam West, -31; Susan Harris, -30; and Lori Hennings, -12; along with
Jeff Ott of the American League at -27. The four bowlers getting their $5 entry
fee back by being eliminated in Week 22 (13-16th place) were Phil Herman in the
Eagles League, -53; Joe Kolczynski, -38; and Ernie Tebeau and Bill Schumacher
each at 12 under.
Susan Harris was the top winner
in the poker year-end event winning two hands in the first set and one in the
second set for $135. Doug Trumbull won two hands in the first set for $90; and
Dave Dohanos won the final hand
in the first set for $45. Brian
Close won one hand and tied with Kurt Wood in another for $67.50. Ed Hoffman
and Kenny Crowe each won a hand for $45 each; while Wood’s share was $22.50. In
the three consolation hands for 11 bowlers, Jim Smith, John Gallagher and Adam
Dilsaver won one hand each worth
$21 per win. Both Harris and Trumbull qualified to participate in all 10
championship hands. The only other bowler to achieve that was Pat Ruck, but the
luck of the cards was not with
her as she did not win a hand.
Bowlers each league session can
enter the optional pot awarded to those who have three clean games (no open
frames) This year entrants did achieve that feat 19 times, which earned $38.30
for each achievement. Both Kirs Kolk and Kyle Waynick each earned that honor
