PLBC hosts NWD Cascadia Challenge
PLBC returned to hosting NW Division tournaments for the 2021 Cascadia Challenge.
A spectacular day of bowling entertained 28 bowlers from Spokane, Seattle, Tacoma and Portland. The green was true and fast, the food generous, the beverages cold, and the bowling competitive.
While Seattle's Bowling Stones finished 1st, Portland's Lawn Rangers took 2nd, and Portland's Jack Attackers picked up 3rd. A more than respectable showing for the home teams.
Tacoma Triples taken by Portland's Jack Attackers
Saturday, August 7th saw the return of division-wide bowling at the Tacoma Triples Invitational.
10 teams from Portland, Seattle, and Tacoma vied for the title through four 8-end games, semi-finals, and finals matches. When the dust settled Portland's own Jack Attackers carried the trophy.
The Jack Attackers were skipped by Philip Cookson, with Jimi Joe playing lead and novice Sarah Maywalt at second. In their finals match, the team came back form a loss in qualifying game play to slaughter Jefferson Park's Bowling Stones.
The Stones finished 2nd, Tacoma teams The Dudes and 1 of 10 Bowls Teams rounded out 3rd and 4th place.

The scoring is based on the Australian UBC events with typical game scores in the 45-60 point range
