Week 35 Bowler Of The Week: Steve Drapala (Port Jervis Chiropractic)

Steve Drapala pulls in the last BOTW of the year. On what may have been a meaningless night Draps put up some big numbers to secure the honor. 223-212-224 (659) +80 was a fine night to wrap it up. Draps will return next season with most of his Port Jervis Chiropractic team with one exception Orv will be starting his own team with his son Cort. This should be an interesting change for PJC and the league. Congrats to Draps for pulling in the last one..Hope we can continue the great tradition of BOTW next season...
Honorable Mention:
Jim Anderson 225-175-277 (677) +75

Dexter The Best Shoes In Bowling

Would you take a knife to a gun fight? Well we know the answer to that? So why step out on the lanes with a crummy pair of shoes you dug out of the closet or even those smelly lane shoes? Take it from the best bowlers in the world your shoes are your most important part of your equipment. You never want to have to think about them. You have to do enough thinking as it is.

See Bill this year and let him recommend a pair of new shoes for you.

This section of the welcome page will bring you a 209 League Bowler who is really on a hot streak. For anyone to be on a hot streak you must be tossing lots of Hambones!

Ray Willis

Ray is the owner and proprietor of Minisink Lanes where we have enjoyed bowling for a number of years. He is a good "OLD" dude that puts up with alot of crap. Even though he's grumpy now and then he still cares about his people. Thanks Ray.....

After you throw your strike ball.....

If you end up with pins that look like "Grandma's Teeth," then you might need to visit Bill's Pro Shop.... Courtesy of Alex Cron

Stay Healthy! Stay Energized!

And grab an apple! It will keep you on the lanes...
