Bowling Fun Day

    An amazing group of hearty souls braved snow and rain on April 7th to meet in Ellensburg at the Rodeo Bowl for the 5th annual Bowling Fundraiser. There were five teams registered this year, but only four were able to come. (Vern, Judy, and Mary Ann Herrst had out of state company and had to miss this year.) All together 19 bowlers competed as we played one game of regular bowling and one game of nine pin no tap. Scores were determined while we took a break for lunch and then played a game of Scotch Doubles. The high scoring team (without handicap) was the Spokane Guys and a Gal. Team members are Phil Green, Dick Weigel, John Chamberlain, Bill Weigel, and Bonnie Rail. High scorer (without handicap) was John Chamberlain, and Rebecca Fleishman was the high scorer (with handicap). The Lewis Ladies of Faith team took top place (with handicap). Members on this team are Karen Karnes, Rebecca Fleishman, and Lynn Tebbutt. This year they brought a friend, Lindsey. Other teams competing were: WGM’s Gals with team members Gerry Mosler, Jill Okicich, Janna Hagerty, and Jamie Mosler, and Alley Oops with team members Sharon Singleton, Ray Berrian, and Marjorie Bamford. Last minute entries were Billie Abers, JoDee DeRosier (Grand Marshal), Scott, and Lindsey. They were each assigned to one of the other teams.
        Several Grand Officers stopped by during the day to add encouragement and share lots of laughter. WGP Bob and escort Nancy; AGP Rodger and escort Helen; GC Mary Ann; and Grand Martha, Jean Ballard. Thanks to everyone who came to bowl and to those who came to support us. Not only was money added to the Grand Chapter funds, but those who attended had a fun time. Plans for next year are underway for a bigger and better tournament!
     Thanks to PGP Dennis Okicich for taking pictures of this event. Watch for them soon on the blog.
