Sixteen teams from around the Bay Area signed up to bowl in the Glenn Steward (formerly called the Ed Arnold) tournament in Palo Alto today, and our club was well represented by 18 full and dual members. This tournament is unique because all bowlers play each position (lead, second and skip) for four ends.
Huge congratulations to Rob Hoey, with the help from Bob Schwartz (Palo Alto) and Leslie Engler for winning 1st Place! This year there’s a trophy, so their names will be the first to be on it! As often happens, other competitive BLBC bowlers were in the mix. A very cheery round of applause to the following:
Team Shawn Roney, Ann Brillhart and Cris Benton for winning 3rd Place.
Team Jim Corr and Giulia Gallo with help from Tim Christie (Palo Alto) for winning 4th Place.
Team Ethan Bortman and Laile Giansetto with help from Bud Birkenseer (Palo Alto), for winning 6th Place.
And an extra round of applause for the rest of the BLBC bowlers who competed today: Sarah Allday, Cathy Dinnean, John Hooper, Jerry Knott, Dave McMullen, Frankie Napoli (dual member from Rossmoor), Mo Shooer (dual member from San Francisco) and Erwin Vista.
