How the competition table stands after round 30 of Pioneer League: In It to Win It 329, Nutters 328, The Niners 318, Spicks and Specks 312 1/2, Nohopenhells 308, Thunderbirds 308, MACK 296, The Deadly Assassins 294 1/2, The Screaming Banshees 277, Powerpins 276 1/2, Bitches 261 1/2, The Pin Heads 251 1/2.

Now, just a note to say Ashleigh Miller of the MACK team don’t leave just yet as you are holding down a trophy for the high series with handicap and you have for a while now so I hope you reconsider.

Well, now back to readers and bowlers, as we now only have six rounds to go I am hoping for two more teams or more to join the league for the next competition.

You don’t need to be a good bowler to play in it, so if you are bored and want something to do on Monday night, why not take up tenpin bowling?

The cost is $21 for three games and pick the score on the first game to win big money plus five meat raffles every week and music of the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s to listen to while you are bowling is great.

Well, that’s all for now bowlers and readers, so until next week good luck and high scoring.

Les Collins.
