Gentlemen of the BTC February 18, 2021



Bowling highlights: High scratch game of the day goes to Vince Oliva at 297 with a 691 series scratch. Tom Kelly shoots a 794 with handicap.. Val Sarli 268, 237, 235 Scratch with 740 and 767 hdcp series. Bluebird Lanes shoots high hdcp series with a 2844. Other mentions Tom Kelly 266, Bruce Zich 265, Gary Foster 243 and Pete Lambros 236,223.


For those of you getting your Covid shots its probably a good idea to check in by phone before heading out as weather seems to hamper the hours of some facilities just as Larry Garetto found out Tuesday all due to a little snow. Another reason is there have been rolling shortages for the 2nd shot at some locations.


Other discussions Tuesday were how winter in Texas, Keystone pipeline closure and  pen and phone just stopped drilling and pumping from federal lands, which accounts for 22% of the countries supply. I wouldn’t be surprised if gas doesn't hit 4 bucks a gallon by labor day.


Also please thank Gary Foster for buying a round of drinks last Tuesday. All be well and stay safe.

TENNIS REPORT - Al Baldermann


8 players showed up in the snow and cold.  A special thanks to Mike Ganz for coming out to give us 8 players.


Cesak and Darabaris were smoked by Rollins and Baldermann in a very interesting match.  It was a thing of beauty.


After tennis 4 of us went to Balagio for dinner and conversation.

Tuesday was the start of the second half. Vince Oliva started the half with a 297 game (691 series). Val Sarli had the best series with a 740 (268 game). And Tom Kelly continued his good bowling with 671 series (266 game). There quite a few missing bowlers because of vacations. I don't think the weather stopped anyone.
