Whether you bowled a 286 game (which someone did) or a 29 game (which someone else did), the important thing is that the Lake Villa Township Lions Club was able to raise funds through a bowling tournament to send several children to Camp Lions next summer.
The camp is for children who are visually handicapped, and more than 30 bowlers participated in the fund-raising event at Lakes Bowl in Round Lake.
There were prizes for the top-scoring teams (Three Cats & A Dog won), and fun prizes for things such as the best team name (The Pinheads won).
The tourney used an 8-pin no-tap format so any first shot in a frame that knocked down eight pins was scored as a strike.
