LAUGHLIN, NV – CALIFORNIA bowlers love traveling to the “Silver State” and bringing home “MOOLA”. Gambling usually results in negative returns while bowling provides an opportunity to balance the scales.
That is exactly what Judee Wood did. She lost at the machines but bowled well enough to take home more “MOOLA” then she came with.
Judee competed in the summer LAUGHLIN BLAST TOURNAMENT a fortnight ago to balance the “MOOLA” scales in her favor. She rolled two handicap no-tap 800s and a huge 290 in the tournament. The 290 was the highest game bowled by a woman all week until the last squad on Wednesday afternoon.
Judee took home the “MOOLA”. Her scores put her in the money. There was no bonus for rolling her 290 but her scores were instrumental in placing her in the TOP 5 with her doubles partners all three days of competition. A first place finish was worth about $360. Not a bad return on a $30 investment (entrance fee).
Congratulations to Judee and thanks to the BOWLING NEWS for supporting CALIFORNIA BOWLERS.
