A Spectacular Year Thanks for coming out to play!

2013 brought  19 new Busters into our hood and to help with that, nine of the original Busters offered tips on etiquette and strategy to help share the love and share the knowledge in a weekly episode we called, Hints from Heloise.

By popular request, this year we stopped the stats-watch and played each game to our best ability without fear of seeing our names lurking in the lowlands of the standings. Rather than honoring only the top tier bowlers at the end of the season, we honored other vital contributions to our league.
