Holiday Doubles By Don Surdich Reprinted Sun Star The first year bowler was John Sagin, and the veteran was his wife Gayle who took home first place in the recent Annual Crazy Holiday Doubles no-tap tour- nament at Bellevue Bowl. John has less than one year of bowling in league play and his wife Gayle has been rolling for years. Tournament director LaDonna Stone of the Merced/ Atwater Women‟s 500 Club said they had a good crowd this year with 30 dou- bles teams at Bellevue. The Sagin‟s rolled a handicap score of 1,759 and will receive $92 each for their win. Coming in second was Kelly Lewis and Bob Neurburg of Modesto with their score of 1,730 good for $76 each. In third was the husband and wife duo of Dennis and Kim Barcellos of Atwater with a 1,716 for $65 each. Fourth place had Debbie Taliaferro and Norm Wiggins with a 1,715 for $57 each, fifth was director Rikki Cascia and John Ward with a 1,799 for for $50 each, and the final position had another director in Marie Herrera and George Souza with 1,686 for $42 each for sixth. A total of eight no-tap 300 games were rolled during the afternoon by Neuer- burg, Dennis Barcellos, Taliaferro, Wiggins, Mark Thompson, Mickey Wall- baum, Jerry McMillian, and Rae Coonce. So, this should tell you that it does matter what your average is. All bowlers can win when its their time. SPECIAL FANS FROM MEXICO TRAVEL TO WSOB IX TO WATCH EJ TACKETT Reigning PBA Player of the Year EJ Tackett was surprised to learn he had a special group of fans in the audience at Reno‟s National Bowling Stadium when he won the Pepsi PBA Scorpion Championship presented by, the final animal pattern event in the GEICO PBA World Series of Bowling IX presented by Eldorado Resorts Reno Prop- erties, a part of the 2017-18 Go Bowling! PBA Tour series. “There was a family from Mexico that came here just to watch me bowl,” Tackett said. “They have an 11-year-old son who has a medical condition that‟s very bad. It‟s very cool to be able to put on a performance after they came all this distance just to watch me bowl.”
