I don't think the ground hog saw his shadow in the Syracuse area on February 2nd. 2003, so that may be a good sign of an early spring and Corvette weather.
The First Annual Ground Hog Bowling is all history now. Over twenty SCC and future SCC bowlers showed their skills on the lanes at the Lakeview Bowling Center in Liverpool.
The format was a little different this year. We all bowled in a no-tap doubles type format. The men needed to get only nine pin on the first ball to get a strike, the ladies needed to get only eight pins to get a strike. Of course, in some cases a few bowlers could have used a few extra pins. The bowling was fast a furious until the food was served during the 2nd. game. Things came to a halt and Pizza, Wings, Ziti, Salad and soda became a top priority. There was plenty of good food for all to enjoy. Suz Crowell provided the brownies for a special treat. After gorging on food, we all waddled back on the lanes to finish our three games. All the scores were totaled and the top days bowlers emerged.
1st Place: Mike Ocasio and Michael Edmunds with a 1425. (these two hotshots won't be paired together again!!!!)
2nd Place: Nancy & Fred Edmunds with a 1228
3rd Place: Susan & Jim Crowell with a 1008
HIGH THREE GAME SERIES
Men's: Mike Ocasio with a 739
Ladies: Nancy Edmunds with a 613
We all had a great time and everyone was a winner.
Hope to see you all at the 2nd Annual Ground Hog Tournament in 2004
