omg 2020 wtf

After ending our Spring season early, we’re not sure when we will start back up again.

Bowling centers will not be open until NC is in Phase 3, so Phase 3 is a minimum. To be safe with a 15-week season commitment we should probably wait until there has been sustained Phase 3 or higher, for multiple months.

Check our facebook page for further updates.

Spring 2017 and.. done!

Bowljobs for the win! Jeff Strikers comes in 2nd. Git ‘er Done took a strong 3rd place after missing the first half win by maybe 1 pin on a roll-off and tying for overall season high points. The rest of the league rounded out like this:
4th – Christi Creams
5th – Unleashed!
6th – Pinhole Surfers
7th – Team 7
8th – Gutters R Us

Christopher Smith sportsmanship award – Christi Broadway and Steve Cooper
High average male – Christopher Moss
High average female – Buck Hilburn

If you know any awards we missed, pipe up in the comments. With the shorter season and no banquet it was all pretty much over before we knew we should keep track!

If you’re one of those bowling-in-summer types, check out the Greater Raleigh Rainbow League (GRRL) [May 24 7pm, bowl Wednesdays 7:30pm for 10 weeks, 4-person teams, mixed league, etc.] If not, you have all summer to think up the perfect bowling innuendo for your team name in the fall!
