Bowling tournament fundraiser
The Stanstead Entertainment Centre held its 14th annual bowling tournament to raise money for the youth of the area, last Saturday. “We were able to raise $1,125 and will be giving $225 each to the Stanstead soccer club, Raymond Parent’s softball league, Sunnyside Elementary, Jardin-des-Frontieres and the CAB RH Rediker,” commented the bowling alley’s manager, Angela Leith.
Twenty-two teams of five players each competed this year, two more than last year and eight more than the year before. “We’ve been growing steadily in the last few years. Everyone has a good time at the tournament, everyone playing three ‘9 pin strike’ games. The highest score wins and that team gets to keep the trophy for the year,” added Ms. Leith.
Companies pay $100 each to enter a team in the tournament. Although this year ABCO put in three teams and GranQuartz put in two, Ogden Granite walked away with the trophy for the third year in a row! “Those Bronson boys are really strong bowlers,” admitted the manager.
