SBC_CCBA  Open Bowling Tournament 2017

This  year’s “Open Tourney ‘s Singles Event” winner was not earned until the last ball was bowled. On the last squad of the tourney, at 7:30 pm, the scores were just about  done and we had a all but  given the title to Donna Knauss for her very impressive 673 score which was 6 pins more than Loy Hutchens 667.  When the final score was delivered to the score-keeper, on the last ball that was rolled,  Mac McGarr had bowled a strike  that gave him a series of 676 to win the Singles Event!

The other events were less dramatic to get a winner.
