24 on the 4th!

That's right: 24 bowlers for 24 hours on the 4th of July.

At high noon this Saturday, two tenacious teams of 12 (The Red Devils and The Blue Angels) will launch the longest game in JP history. And we (the 24's) urge you all to come out — if only for a moment — to share in the buzz, applaud our pluck, and keep the party going!

Opening hoopla starts at 11am, first bowl rolls at 12-noon. Final bowl, wrap up ceremony, and BBQ at noon on Sunday.

Drink and eat, eat and drink at THE NO END LOUNGE.

Heckles and howls!
Oohs and aahs !!
Arena seating !!!

Hope to see you there.... (we ain't going anywhere!)

On behalf of all of us,

Chris Davis

2015 Social Security Classic

We had a fabulous tournament today.  10 over 62 bowlers fought out a very competitive day to determine our Champion.  After all the dust settled the oldest bowler in the tournament, Bob Young won all his games and is our 2015 Champion.

There was a logjam for second place but after calculating all the plus points,Richard Broad emerged in second place with Doug Bradley in third.

Thank you to everyone who participated and also many thanks to our dedicated markers who made the day so much easier.
