How the competition table stands after round 25 of Pioneer League: Nutters 277 1/2, The Niners 268 1/2, In It to Win It 266, Thunderbirds 266, Spicks and Specks 263 1/2, MACK 249, Nohopenhells 249, The Deadly Assassins 245, The Screaming Banshees 234, Powerpins 227 1/2, Bitches 211 1/2, The Pin Heads 203.

Well, before I sign off may I remind bowlers and readers the league is still looking for a player for The Pin Heads’ team and you don’t need to be a good bowler to play as it is based on handicap.

The league is also looking for more teams of four players as this competition ends in 11 weeks.

So talk to your friends and organise for the next competition, as it is only $21 for three games plus money to be won on the first game, also five meat raffles to be won and great music to listen to while you are bowling.

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

Les Collins.
