Otto Hess / Sydney Steller 2-Bowl Triples — Sat, Aug 31

Plan on a fun day of bowls in Milwaukee on Sat, Aug 31 at the 2-bowl triples event. This is a fast-paced game with only 12 bowls on each end–six by each team. We’ll play three games starting at 9:00 a.m. Bring your own lunch. Cost is only $5.00 per person.
Here’s what you need to do: members form their own teams, so find two other people to bowl with, but remember the vice or skip must be a woman. Teams can be all women if you choose, but a maximum of two men. If you want to bowl but don’t have a team, put your name on the board in the Milwaukee clubhouse, or send your name to the email address below, and you’ll be matched with others for a team.  We hope to have a good mix of social and competitive bowlers having a good time on Labor Day weekend. We warmly welcome Chicago and other bowlers to join the fun!
Send your entry/interest to golawnbowls@yahoo.com (that’s Steve Nelson).

No-Bocce Bowls Pairs Tournament

On Sunday afternoon, July 21, 16 club members comprising 8 teams competed in the club’s first “No-Bocce” Bowl Tournament.  Playing three close and competitive games of 8 ends each, the teams bowled for 1st and 2nd place. The winners are: 1st place:  John Adamski and Sue Dropp, 2nd place:  Norma Harrington and Jack Abrams.  Check out the unique trophy in the clubhouse created for this event.  Everyone had a great time – especially since the first raindrops splattered just as the last bowls were rolled. As the group enjoyed a pizza dinner under the awning, it was agreed a new club tradition had been born. Thank you to everyone who made the day a success!
