Spring Fishing Party 2014

The Spring Fishing Party was held on March 30th and it had 91 members in attendance. Between ticket sales for both parties and sponsor donations that Office Manager Esmeralda Tapia has worked diligently to bring in, we have about a $2500.00 bank going into the Fall Party.

We made almost $100.00 on the prize raffle after expenses were removed. With additional ticket sales we should have enough to cover the Fall Party (October 19, 2014)!

We need more members to participate.

Canary Bowl 2014

On March 16, 2014, 70 members, on 14 teams took part in the resumption of the George A. Canary bowling tournament!

It was held at the Brunswick Bowl in Glendale Heights, Illinois. Bowling started at 1:00 pm and the bowlers took to the lanes with energy that has been stored up for 2 years since we didn't have a tournament last  year.

When the last pin fell, the team standing in 1st place was Digital Destruction with a pin count of 3232! 2nd place was the Chicago Misfits with a total of 3007 and 3rd place was Lehigh's Finest with a total of 2989.

Congratulations to the winning team of Ricky Poe, Will Ross, Rob Purol, Tony Gagliano and Frank Martin!

1st place paid $300, 2nd place $200 and 3rd paid $150!

Frank Martin took 1st place in the scratch pot with a 267 with Joe Hathaway placing 2nd with a 266!

In the handicap pot, Frank Martin took 1st place again with a total of 273 and Rob Purol came in 2nd with a total of 250! Congratulations to all!

Thanks are owed to Bill Stevens and Mark Muhr who began the process of putting this event together after the November 2013 membership meeting when they approached the Local about holding a tournament this year. But the biggest thanks goes to Sandy Grisko who took the challenge and arranged everything with the bowling alley and worked out the contract for this successful event.  We also have to thank Esmeralda Tapia and Lisa Cortez in the DC4 office for their assistance in putting this together.

This event was completely self sustaining. In fact, after the entrance fees were collected and the money the local made on the 50/50 collection was added,  the event came out $24.49 in the black.  Expenses included prize money and 2 drinks for each member who stuck around in the lounge after bowling. This extra money will be put back in the events fund.

When speaking with the members in the lounge after everyone was excited for next year. Some changes will be made to attract more teams with the biggest on being we will allow any team to have up to 2 non union bowlers. The intent is to allow members to bowl with family members to make it a day they don't have to spend away from their families. Since we are going to be self supporting and no union money is being used we can allow this.

We are open to looking and hearing any other ideas anyone may have to help us improve and grow this event. So start planning for next year and get your team together! Talk it up in your shops and let's try to get twice as many teams as this year!
