off to Bologna - 'Italy senior open' bowling tournament 2011
Its a new challenge... the senior open bowling tournaments. I am celebrating my 50th birthday in Bologna this week by taking part in my first senior challenge. About 180 bowlers are expected to compete for the top 34 slots. I will give them a hard time. They will surely give me a hard time because I will be playing scratch whilst all older bowlers will get 1 point bonus for each year over 50. Judging by the tempo of the first squads, i will need to play over 220 average scratch to make the finals. UPDATE - XIH U SOD! - my two entries (valid for qualification): 204-205-254-233-242-204 = 1341 245-197-225-226-233-227 = 1353Winners: DidoneFrancesco & Hildegard
