Hey all! Sanity needs your help! We are having a fundraiser so we can start building our deck that you and we LOVED! It will be at Lucky 10 Lanes on April 29th, starting at 7:00 pm. It's $30 per team.   **Please message us or text me if you'd like to sign up! (max=30 teams, contact 319-464-2177)** Here is how this crazy game will be played: Player 1 will bowl the first ball of each odd numbered frames. Player 2 will bowl the first ball of the even numbered frames. If you get a strike, your partner does not bowl on that frame. However, If any pins remain standing, the player's partner takes a turn and attempts to knock the pins down to score a spare.For the 2nd and 3rd game; partner 1 moves to the pair of lanes to the right, partner 2 moves to the pair of lanes to the left. You will be responsible for keeping track of your scores. The scores will then be totaled and the top 3 scores will be awarded. Hope to see you all! CHEERS!
