Friday, October 10th marked the third and final Historic ‘Hoods Bowling Challenge issued by Paradise Palms. For our final match of the season, the Flamingo Club readily took on our challenge and gathered their finest bowlers to go head-to-head against the Palmers. Both teams well represented their respective organizations in what turned out to be the most well-attended event of the season. Despite some challenging conditions – a malfunctioning yet generous pin-reader for the Flamingos on Lane 19, transitioning from regularly-lit bowling to the dark and blacklight-lit Cosmic Bowling and some questionable music blaring through the basement of Sam’s Town, the Palmers held strong and maintained high scores throughout the night.
Our own Jason Medberry & Steve Fey both scored turkeys – three strikes in a row – Steve on Game 1 and Jason on Game 2, while Dan Stafford was the official high-scorer of the night with 155 on his second game (Cameron, Richard and Jason were all narrowly close with 152, 153 and 154 respectively). High scorer for the Flamingos was William with 147, who along with Shar scored the most strikes in a single game. In what turned out to be one of the most fun events of the season, the Palmers pulled together to score their second victory of the season. Final score: Flamingo Club 101.1, Paradise Palms 116.9. Rumors of a re-match in November began flowing almost immediately – if challenged the Palmers will gladly accept. Thank you Flamingo Club for such a great evening, you gave the Palmers quite a run.
