Our opponents didn’t have a legal lineup, so we were bowling for forfeit points, all four of which we won. Steve had one of his better games, a 135, in the second game to help us.
Something happened last night on one of the adjoining pairs that I’ll mention here: Jim Blyth, our league president, converted the 7-10 split for his first time. Nice going!
