Full house at bowling tournament

Local resident wins handicap side

The Big Country Lanes Bowling Alley’s Second Annual Grey Cup Tournament went off without a hitch.

“It went very well. It was a full tournament. We were hoping for 32 and there were 32 people here,” said owner and organizer Sherree Richet.

She said it was a very good turnout compared to last year, where they had 29 people come out.

Darren Rich from Trail won the scratch side (higher-end bowlers) of the tournament. Debbie Palchuk, a resident of 100 Mile, won the handicap side.

As for next year, Richet said Big Country Lanes weren’t thinking of changing anything.

“It went extremely way, we don’t have any complaints about anything. It really went off like clockwork.”

Her husband and co-owner of the bowling alley, Larry, said the fact they had a full house was a memorable moment.

Another one was the scores.

“There were multiple 300 games by a whole pile of different people,” he said.

He also mentioned the fact that all the handicap section of the tournament was exclusively made up of people from 100 Mile House.

“We are really excited about that fact. It goes to show you that people in 100 Mile are getting excited about bowling and coming out and trying tournaments and being successful.”
