Gelling, Shaffer win city titles at Star Lanes

The 10th annual USBC and third annual women’s USBC City Championships were held over the last two weekends of January at the Star Lanes.

Nathan Gelling was the champion of the Open Championship tournament with a nine-game scratch all events score of 2219 and two perfect 300 games. Also in that tournament, Brian Robbins bowled an 801 three game series. The Women’s Singles tournament had a high three game scratch score of 743 rolled by Brenda Shaffer.

Every year the Butte Bowling Association sponsors honor teams made up of some of our oldest active bowlers. This year’s men’s honor team was made up of Bud Meier, Dave Andrews, Dennis Nelson, and Bob Barger. Dorothy Combo, Eva Johnson, June Kiss, and Lorraine Arvila made up the women’s honor team.

This year’s championship tournament was made up of 30 bowlers in division 1(average 199 and up), 56 bowlers in division 2 (average 172 – 198), and 69 bowlers in division 3 (average 171 and under) for a total of 155 bowlers that made up 48 teams, 70 doubles, 140 singles, and 120 all events entries.

This is the third year that the women’s tournament has been a singles event only. The tournament had 4 bowlers in division 1 (average 160 and up), and 20 bowlers in division 2 (average 159 and under).
