Coveted Toilet Bowl Seat Trophy is back thanks to Krone, Jodie, Lou and Reinhardt!!
The last Sunday in July is the date for the coveted Toilet Bowl tournament at River Rand Bowl. The Annual event features friendly competition from Area Bowling Centers. Teams are comprised of employees, owners and good customers. It is a handicap tournament and each team must have 1 women teammate.
Sunday's competitors included teams from River Rand Bowl, Habbetler Bowl, the old Des Plaines Bowl, Classic Bowl and from Brunswick Zone Mount Prospect. The format was three games of qualifying, cut the field in half to six teams and then 2 more games and cut to the top 2.
The River Rand 3 team consisted of John Krone, Jodie the bartender, Lou V (a last minute replacement) and House star Reinhardt. After game 1 it looked bad as RR3 struggled with a million 10 pins and no carry. The lanes loosed up and we had a very strong game 2 with Lou Shooting 269 and Krone, Jodie and Kevin getting on track.
By game 3 we were in the thick of it, Krone shot 256 and we qualified 4th. 2 More games of qualifying and after game 1, we were over 150 out of first…but RR3 powered by Jodies 214 and great games by Krone and Kevin propelled us into the final match.
Lots of spectators and a very, very motivated and fired up team of very good bowlers from Brunswick Zone Mount Prospect stood in our way of the championship; but the experienced RR3 team remained cool under the leadership of Reinfart and won by 40 pins. This was a great win and a true team effort…everyone earned this title.
One question…do we get to "USE" the trophy?
