2013 Blind Pairs

The 2013 Blind Pairs tournament was held on Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. Though the 20-bowler field had to endure cool temperatures this year, the sun did come out at times during this all-day tournament, and no rain delayed any of the games.  The format this year was condensed to one day, and included four games for all bowlers, concluding with a final game played by the top two ranked skips and leads, while the rest of the field played their games to try to finish in the top 10 spots for prize money.  Two husband wife teams finished in the top ten, Dave and Viki Olsen, and Steve and Alice Sedgwick. Well done!!
