A big ‘welcome back’ to all bowlers returning from the holiday break. We trust everyone had a safe and happy holiday.
This is a great time of year in the 5-pin bowling world, as some of the major events and tournaments come full circle.
The Manitoba Masters held their third Senior’s Event on Jan. 5 at Windsor Lanes in Winnipeg, where Brandon’s Gus Scaletta put up a sixth place performance with a +117 after eight games. On the ladies side, Gisele Sayer placed fourth with a +158.
The Masters then held their Teaching Division event on Jan. 6 at Roxy Lanes in Winnipeg, where Jerry Sayer shot a +53 to keep him in second overall through four events.

And don’t look now, but the Westman Open Zone Championship is just a month away!
