Time Flies When Having Fun
Wowsers has it been a long while since I updated this page!
I blame facebook. Maybe the biggest time suck in the history of the internet, tongue
Many pages here need updating including the Menu and its Prices.
Until then the only set of current prices are posted at the Lanes and in the Kitchen.
See you soon, smile

Monte Carlo - we'll try again next month
We have scheduled the first Monte Carlo of the season on October 20th. It will start at 7 pm as usual assuming there are enough sign-ups by Friday night to prevent it from being cancelled.

The suggestion box is open if you have any fun ideas we could try this year.

EDIT: due to insufficient sign-ups we were forced to keep Monte Carlo on hiatus. We will try again next month; stay tuned for details!

Bowler of the Year Tournament
Well it took a while to gather everyones schedules before we could hold the big Finale for this season's Bowlers of the Months. Eventually we found a day that didn't conflict with anything else and the tournament was set for June 28th at 6 pm.

After 3 games bowled across 3 pairs of lanes we were able to cut to the top 4 who were seeded into the Semi's based on these scores:
1. Kathy Fultz, 704
2. Tina Joseph. 687
3. Theresa Wentworth, 616
4. Mickie Springer, 608

#1 seed Kathy defeated #4 seed Mickie by handicap scores of 241 to 203.
#3 seed Theresa defeated #2 seed Tina by handicap scores of 224 to 190.

The closest match in tournament history was a nail-biter for both contestants as well as the spectators.
Both women were slightly below average and the lead literally changed with every ball rolled in the last few frames.
After all of that drama we almost needed to go to a tie breaker!
Finale scores with handicap:
#3 seed, Theresa Wentworth, 190 defeated #1 seed, Kathy Fultz, 189.

Congratulations to Theresa Wentworth for winning Bowler of the Year for 2011-2012! She is the 3rd woman winner in a row and the 4th in the 10 year history of the event.

St Jude Strike-a-thon
Sunset Lanes is hosting a fundraiser Saturday, Oct. 15th, in support of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The event is a Strike-a-thon where each bowler bowls three games of No-Tap and No-Split. That means if they leave one pin or a split on their first ball of a frame they will record a strike instead.
Sponsor forms (pledge sheets) are available at front desk and participants can win up to three prizes for collecting donations.
Sunset Lanes and Wade's Pro Shop are also donating $5 per participant to the charity as well as a couple of special prizes to the participants.
More information about St. Jude Children's Research Hospital can be found at www.stjude.org

Dave Allen met this guy ...
While traveling one time Dave met the North American champion Tea drinker. It was up in Canada that he met Chief Running Water when he watched the North American Tea Drinking Championships. Chief Running Water drank 44 cups to win the title that year. Sadly, the next morning, he was found dead. He had drowned in his tea-pee. He is survived by his darling daughters Hot and Cold, and his son Luke-warm. laughing

New Year's Eve Party
The sign up sheet for this year's party is at the front desk and has openings. As usual, preference is given to party goers who were in attendance last year. There will be 2 major changes to this year's party.
First, the process for entering each game will be tweaked so as to reduce the down time between games. Secondly, smoking breaks will only take place on the sidewalk out front and only if a bowler is sitting out for a game. Other party customs will be the same (doors will be locked, drunks will be sent home, snacks will be potluck.)
