DieHards' MadSkillz Slapdown 2014

Picking up where we left off last year, our fall Wednesday night league — the Die Hards — will be devoted to hardcore skill development through crazeball twists on our quirky little game.  We'll start normal enough on Week One with a straight draw, all four bowls, nice and easy like, but pretty quickly veer off into Tasmanian Rules, the DitchMeister 500 and even a spot of Going all Krueger on Your Ass.  This will be the wildest Die Hards League ever!  Drop-ins welcome (at $5/week), or you can commit to full-throttle 100% DH status ($15 for the entire nine week run).  There will be glory, there will be prizes, there will be a banquet permit!!  Just Bring It, Bowlers!!!
Coming October 1 - November 26, 2014 to JPLBC

Northwest Division Novice Singles Results

The Novice Singles was held at Jefferson Park on Saturday September 20th in glorious late summer weather. Ten bowlers from Seattle and Portland had a great time playing four games before Jeff Downey emerged as the 2014 Novice Singles Champion.  Jeff won all four of his games while four bowlers lost one game.  After all the plus point calculations were completed, Peter Mauro took second place and Greg Sheehan was third.  Thanks to all the Novice Bowlers and all the markers who made this a great day of bowling.

NW Division Singles Play Downs

Our Singles Play Downs are now complete and we have worthy Mens and Womens Champions.

In the Ladies Competition Alex Vanden Bos rapped it up with 3 wins while Nancy Nishikawa  was the alternate.  It was a hard fought series of games over Saturday and Sunday before Alex emerged as the winner.  This will be her first time to go to the US Championships.  We in the NW Division wish her all the best in Florida.

In the Mens Competition it was a Double Elimination and after everything was settled Andy Klubberud was the winner over Richard Broad.  The Competiition in this tournament was fierce and the standard of bowling by all competitors was very high.  I think Andy will do the NW proud,  after all he and John johnson are the current US Champion Pairs.

This year we enjoyed a great weekend weatherwise, not too hot but nice and sunny.

Thank you to all the markers, scorers, rink rollers and set up persons.
