Women’s Doubles Handicap Barbara Johnson and Stacy Calhoun of Hampton took first place with a combined score of 1385 and in second Christine Saunders and Brenda Hubbard (1358) and third  the combo of Zicopula “Noy” Huajeng and Brigitte drake with 1309. Zicopula “Noy” Huajeng also placed first in the Women’s Singles Handicaps 60-69 division.

The Open Single 50-59 Handicap is always an event of interest every year of the tournament, this year Gary Lockhart of  top the list with a score of 865 , second place Open Single 50-59 Handicap division Frank Bodon of Williamsburg  (794). third place Sonchai “Tom” Ballowe of Yorktown (767)and fourth Jody Puhlman of Newport News (744).

The Women’s Open Singles Handicap 70 to age 99 was hotly contested also with Brigitte Darke (691) beating Diane Linger (690) by one pin and Shirley Perdue third (663)

The 79 to 99 age division was the most competitive division with a spare here or there would have changed the results, this shows how strong a field of bowler Seniors Bowlers VPUSBC can field in an event – great bowling!!

ALL EVENTS, this one of my favorite divisions as it shows how well a bowler performed during the events, again hats off to Gary Lockhart of North Va placing first in the Open All EVENTS age 50 -59 Handicap, Gary had a “career” tournament shoot a combined 1648 to place, second James Belfore (1524).
