Congratulations to Jennifer Slagter on bowling her 1st

800 series


Jennifer and her sisters were bowling in the Brunswick & Mike Marks Pro Shop Doubles Championship at Park Centebowlingwithpinsr Lanes on Saturday Jan. 28th.  Jennifer got off to a great start with games of 258, 279 & 277 for an 814 series.  She finished off the 4 game qualifier with a 212.  This was also while she was changing lanes after each game.  Not an easy feat to do.  Congratulations on a great series.  Not too long ago we printed the 1st 800 series for Jennifer's sister Kim Becker.  That's two out of the four girls now that have bowled an 800 series.  I am sure the other two are right behind her.  They are all great bowlers. 



State Tournament Workers

State Tournament officials and workers met a couple of weeks ago to discuss the need for scorekeepers and other workers for the Michigan State Women's Tournament.  The State Association made a presentation to our people about dress code, work rules, etc..  We have lot's of people willing to help and we really appreciation that.


Also there is still a need for women willing to sub.  If you are interested please contact the office @ 530-8195.
