Senior Open Fours Winners

Congratulations to Tuxedo bowlers Sandra Mulholland, Shirley Stone, and Gerry Donnelly. This past Wednesday they teamed up with Phil Clark of Norwood to win this annual seniors fun event. There were no pictures taken of the winning squad, however we did manage to get a shot of one of the well dressed competing teams. See if you can guess who they are.snropen.png

The cost once more is $5 and you can choose between chicken, hot dogs and hamburgers. As always, volunteers will be required to help with the barbecue.

Tuxedo Tournament Success

Congratulations to Tuxedo club members Brenda Frank, Ellen Diehl, Brian Kullman, and Jerome Kirby. Top honours in the Tom Moore Memorial went to Brian and Ellen, while Jerome and Norwood teammate Rick Knockaert prevailed in the Manitoba Open Pairs event. Brenda’s claim to fame this weekend was her TWO tournament “eight-enders”. How cool is that!? Brenda shared this exceptional achievement with her Norwood up-and-comer teammate Barb Heinrichs. Great job Ladies!! N.B. Brenda also had an eight ender this past week with club mate Joanne Kullman bringing Brenda’s weekly tally of eight-enders to 3. Wow!! Many thanks to the dedicated members of Tuxedo for hosting this event, and for their warm hospitality.
