GV903s News

Winning isn't everything -- bowling is about FUN and CAMARADERIE. And education. The GV903s are winless thus far in the Spring League play. After three close games against the Blind Pig Tavern team Feb. 19, the final game came down to a single point advantage to the other side. it was enlivened by an impressive turkey by Tom Frieling. Tom was decidedly the MVP of the evening, which means you are not allowed to make any Tom Turkey jokes.

Despite a commanding lead in the first game Feb. 26, the GV903s were defeated by the Southern Broadcasting team. BUT, there was an astounding performance by Danny Bridges who scored a tremendous number of strikes throughout the evening. A combination of technical difficulties and Deb Raftus' considerable dexterity at picking up a spare made for several exciting frames. On Monday (3/5) the teams takes on the Loco's team -- head out to Kingpins, have some fun and learn new jargon!
