The final standings are now official in the Mixed Team No-Tap tournament held over the Thanksgiving holidays. Stan Bottorff would like to thank all who took part and made the event a success. A total of 43 teams competed over the four-day weekend with the first place team of Sue Kirkpatrick, Martha Bates, Barry Woods, Carolyn Townsend and M.A. Copeland pocketing a cool $1290 for their efforts. Lisa Rickles and Regina Anderson paired up to take the top spot in Doubles and Lisa also claimed the title in Singles. A total of 10 No-Tap 300s were recorded including a couple by the mother-daughter pair of Kim Shirley and Andrea Clearman.

The next event coming our way is the Stan's Classic Tournaments 4 and 8-game sweeper on December 17. Complete information and entry forms are available at Dixie Bowl or you may contact Stan Bottorff.

There is also a possibility that Stan will host another tournament during the Christmas break when the leagues are off. I will have more information on that as soon as possible.

Congratulations go out to thirteen-year-old youth bowler Danny Shannon who traveled to Dallas, Texas to compete in the Christ Barnes Thanksgiving Youth Classic. Danny missed out on the top spot by a mere 8 pins and placed 2nd in a field of 40 bowlers in his division. For his efforts Danny was awarded a $500 scholarship. We are all proud of Danny for his accomplishment and wish him the best of luck in future endeavors.

League action started back last Monday after the Thanksgiving break. With several leagues no bowling the week of Thanksgiving, only a few leagues had taken to the lanes before this was written. But that didn't stop bowlers from making a lot of noise the first three days of the week. Mike Cothern and Alan Hand got things started off with a bang in the first game of the Hucklebuck league. Mike banged home a big 289 while Alan chimed in with a 267. However, neither man could sustain the charge. Mike finished the night with a nice 680, while Alan struggled a bit in the last two games and ended with a 628. In the meantime, in the Monday Nighters league Robert Ross recorded his career high game of 268. In the Wednesday Night Mixed league, new bowler Tim Poppen "popped" his way to a nice 254.

Eunice Dillard claimed the high game of the limited week with a 214 with Tonya Killingsworth right behind her with a 213 and senior bowler Ina Fairley breathing down her neck with a 212. Sharon Wade had a pair of deuces while taking the high series with a 579. Other ladies stepping gout included Mary Copeland, Taneezia Cook, Lisa Covington, Linda Genin and Martha Bates.

And youth bowler Colton Dooley proved he is no slouch by blasting his way to a 265 game and 630 series.

That's all for this week. Until next week, good luck and good bowling.
