–Central Valley Masters’ 4th “Christmas for Kids” Delivers!

The Central Valley Masters crew did their Christmas distribution the weekend of December 14-15 with the $4,700 that was raised at their “Christmas for Kids” Tournament/Fundraiser at AMF Southwest Lanes on Sun., December 8th.

Thanks to Craig Ingalls, a car friend of mine who also was a bowler, who posted he had a couple pre-lit Christmas trees to give away on Facebook and we got him hooked up with John Curtis/CVM and those donated three trees were added to the distribution. (Craig bowled at AMF Westchester on Tuesday nights every year with the Bagels & Blenders group which was just a fun league that he put together every winter.)

CVM President John Curtis reported, “It’s been a busy few weeks. I again want to thank everyone that participated in the Christmas for Kids fundraiser. We shopped for over (40) children. Christmas for these families will be a happy time thanks to all of you. To be a parent and not have anything for your children on Christmas has to be the worst feeling. The gratitude that the parents showed made it all worth it. Thanks again and we hope to see you next year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.”

(Results for this Coffee Club not yet posted and will be in next column.)

Coffee Club is on Sunday mornings at 12 noon at AMF Southwest Lanes (or sometimes at Mt. Mesa Lanes in Lake Isabella with starting time at 10am). Cost to enter is $20 for 4 games, blind doubles draw. Optional high pots, singles, and 3-6-9. Handicapped and fun bowling with some great local bowlers! And, once a month, a No-Tap Tournament will be scheduled!!

**Strike Pot is a new game we started. It’s about purchasing raffle tickets for $5 each. During the second game we draw one ticket and that person must bowl a strike for the cash in the pot. If a strike isn’t bowled, then that person gets $10 and the amount is rolled over. If a person misses a week or more and chooses to participate for the total, they must pay $5 per week missed; if not, they only get amount raised that day if their ticket is drawn and they bowl a strike.

GET THEM WHILE THEY LAST!! Danielle Looney has created Coffee Club Tee’s!! She is selling them for $20 each and they are available in a variety of colors. You can also have your name put on them (it can be placed on the front below the logo or on the back across the shoulders) for a total cost of $25. If you would like to sport one of these, send Danielle Looney a message on Facebook and you are set!
