The season is just underway and there is already a fierce competition building up among the Senior Bowlers who took to the lanes at the Uptown Bowl for their fourth week of action.
The fourth team has taken shape with the addition of newcomers John and Lena Maille as well as Bosila Coholic. Only one more player is needed to complete this team.
As always, safety is paramount for this fun activity, with all bowlers and staff observing the social distancing rules and precautions to ensure a covid-safe environment at the enhanced Uptown Bowl.
When talking about fierce competition one only has to look at the Women’s standings. Every week a new face stands up to be counted. Last week Velda Hol took top honours in all categories in the Women’s Competition.
With her absence this week, teammate Susan Kymta stepped up to the plate and took the Women’s High single with an awesome 221 pt game. This score was enough to nudge Velda Hol out of the first place Season High Single position. Susan also took top doubles score with 374 pts which also netted her second place in the Women’s Seasonal High doubles. Velda Hol still holds first place in the seasonal high doubles with 422pts. Susan wasn’t done yet as she also received recognition as the Most Improved Bowler of the week by bowling 40 pts over her season average. Congratulations to her for an excellent outing.
Noella Leblanc continues to show she is the next star in waiting by taking the second place Women’s High Single with 183 pts and the third place High Doubles with a 336 pt tally.
Ellen Watson put in another strong effort and and took third place High Singles with an excellent 180 pts game effort which again combined with a good first game helped her claim second place in the Women’s High Doubles with a 343 pt. total. Dianne Spencer rounds out the top three Women’s Season High Doubles score with 362 pts. Who will shake up the standings next week?
The Senior’ men bowlers are still behind the women when it comes to high scores but there is hope on the horizon as rumours have it that last year’s Men’s top bowler Bob McClinchey is going to return soon. John Carhart took both the Men’s High Single and High Double scores for the third week in a row with respectively 156 pts. and 299 pts scores. Frank Potts had a good game to take Men’s Second High Single with 145 pts. This was also the basis with which he nabbed Second Place High Doubles with a 274 pt total. Newcomer John Maille nestled himself in the three top three bowlers of the week with a third place high single of 144 pt and a third high doubles tally of 267 pts. There were no changes in the Mens Season High Scores. John Carhart retains first place in both the Singles and Doubles competition. Frank Potts has the second place high single with 153 pts and Bill McKelvey is still holding on to third place with a 150 pts. score.
In seasonal Doubles standings Bud Miller is in second place with 277 pts and newcomer Marcel Dorval retains third place with a 276 pts tally. As earlier mentioned, change is on the horizon for these standings with the return of Bob McClinchey. High average bowler Alex
Vanderburg’s return/recovery suffered a setback but he is hoping to return soon. In the Most Improved Bowler competition there were a lot of improved scores but as mentioned, Susan Kmyta was the one standout winner with 40 pts over her seasonal average. Honorable mentions go again to Cathy Carhart who bowled 35 pts. over her seasonal average and to Marilyn Schonfeldt who bowled 27 pts. over her regular average. With the arrival of the fourth team the team competition standings will soon be posted as the team averages are being finalized. The Seniors are looking forward to a tight competition in 2020-2021 with plenty of bowling fun and bragging rights.
