Wrap Up: Lancaster's Inaugural Sweetness Open
MBA CHAPTER - LANCASTER, PA
The Lancaster chapter of the MBA has finally had its inaugural event. The First annual Sweetness Open was held at Rocky Springs Entertainment Center, nestled between the stabby streets of the Red Rose City and the rolling hills of Amish Country.
Chapter Leader, Mike McDonnell, stole the first game with a 141. While Danielle "Baked Beans" Sharp threw an impressive 9 gutter balls. The rest of the bowlers were mediocre and not worth mentioning.
Game 2 was dominated by Jasmine Grimm, who threw an impressive 149 which was the high score for the night!! Neal Bricker had a dreadful 68. In a post game interview, Neal had no comment. He just showed us his ball inscribed with the word "shitty".
Game 3 was equally as lackluster, though it saw high scores from both Eric Forberger and Neal Bricker. We, also, got to see Gina show us what mediocre really is. She bowled a 40, the low score for the night, and 9 gutters to tie Baked Beans for most gutters of the event with 18!!
Upon further review it was actually Gina who won the tie breaker but due to gross negligence Baked Beans was awarded the Gutter Trash Award.* When asked about Ginas dreadful performance her caretaker Eric Forberger replied "Maybe she does need that helmet."
The Dude Award was given to Deb Grove who in spite of bowling most mediocre, entertained us all with her between-frame dance moves.
