Special Thanks!

Although many folks (and all you bowlers!) helped make the day a success, special thanks to Sam Hull (Oregon) and Karyn Turner (Washington) for their devoted efforts reaching out to bowlers, teams, and houses to raise interest and fill the lanes. We love you!

To Tim Tkacik, Dale Okazaki, Greg Hess, and Jeff Morin for their meticulous efforts to ensure accurate statistics, scoring, and winner payouts (and that monster bowl of chocolates).

To Triangle Bowl for hosting the I-5 Showdown, and we look forward to more events. Extra thanks to Triangle Bowl servers, bartenders, and kitchen staff who kept everyone well supplied with food, drink, and smiles. BTW, we were bowled over by the gold pins you set up for the final game – absolutely fabulous! (Triangle Bowl web site.)
