The Annual meeting at Tower Lanes was a Huge success with a great turnout of South Sound members!

There was not a ⅔ vote to approve it so the amendment was not adopted.
Thank you to our host MC and intermission entertainer Bob Hanson (Proprietor of Tower Lanes) for everything that he does for the sport we love!

The Extravaganza was an incredible test of stamina, skill and just plain will. Once again the Boys and Girls started strong by taking almost ALL of the points for the head to head matches. The Girls were in first place at the start of the baker games, but lost the lead they had to Snohomish to finish a respectable 2nd place. The Boy’s fell pray to the dreaded baker games as well and ended up in 4th place.
The Women’s team was very consistent all weekend and finished in 4th place. The Men’s team that was missing half of the regular men’s All-Star roster just could not break into the top 4 all tournament long and finished 7th.
Results will be posted as soon as we receive them from the WSUSBC.

Day one of competition in the All-Star Extravaganza at Majestic Lanes has concluded with the Women’s team in 4th place at 9 under the leader, Kitsap. The Boy’s team is in 4th place at 17.5 under the leader,Cowlitz. The Girl’s team is in 2nd place only 5 points behind Snohomish who is in the lead with 52 total points.
It was a battle royal in the youth divisions with both South Sound teams in the lead several times during the day. They both started strong and dominated the single game match ups, but.once the baker matches started the youth teams struggled to string wins together to get all the total pin match points.
Day two of the competition begins at 8:30AM on Sunday, so come out and support our All-Stars!
