DieHard7- Week Five

The Ditchmeister 5000 is being sent back to the shop for a tune-up. This past week's first running got off to a bumpy start with few teams firing on all cylinders — i.e. embracing the veritable jackpot touchers could deliver, particularly those in the ditch. The thrill of that first ditched jack, however, seemed to kick things into high gear for several partnerships. Off to the races, these early ditchers ran up some very big counts against their trailing opponents who found themselves wiping sand (instead of chalk) off their bowls. Not a resounding success coming out of the blocks, this game will get a working over and be back at some point in the near future as the retooled, retorqued Ditcherator Ga-Zillion. Watch out for it.

In the meantime, we are just past the halfway point of the season, and with four more nights to go, everyone is still in it — literally, figuratively and mathematically.

This coming week you will get all of your bowls.  No other hints.  See everyone on Wednesday.

Beer cans make real good ditch markers!

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.
