FFA Holds Annual Turkey Bowling Event
Posted on 11/17/2017

Hello sports fans and all you fall enthusiast. The drop of temperatures and the flurries in the air have all  good sportsman thinking of two things, Deer and Turkey’s.

Yes it is that time of year again when the feathers must be plucked off and the bird becomes frozen for the annual PBT ( Pro Bowlers Turkey ) championship. Four lanes with 24 participants flooded the parking lot last night as the lines were drawn and the pins set for night of turkey hurling. Favored this year was last year’s rookie sensation Nolan Lecloux  who was already thinking Dynasty with four more years of eligibility. However veteran senior chuckers were not about to roll over without a fight.  Each lane would crown it’s own champion but the true prize was the wait for the overall champion to be plucked from the rest of the flock. Black Mikkel Phillips set the tone early with a first frame powerful spare and a 15 pins to lead the group into the second  with Nolan struggling to throw just a mere four pins. However failing to convert on his second throw in the second Mikkel slipped into second after Senior Lexie LeClair  made her move with the first strike of the night. The blacktop prove to be the one in charge tonight with just one other strike to be thrown by Hannah Walsh, and only three spares on this mild fowl night. Remaining solid for the next three frames with  scores in the six and seven range, Lexie proved to be the most consistent and steady turkey thrower for the night taking the championship with a score of 44 pins. Lane winners included in Lane 1 Cynthia Collins, Lane 2 BrooklynBrauner, Lane Three Champion Lexie LeClair, and Lane four Austin Ploor. When asked afterwards Nolan made no excuses but did say the warm mild, dry,  no wind night could have influenced the roll of the bird and allowed more true sliding on the blacktop.Nolan finished with a respectable 25 pins  As we throw away those fowl battered road rash birds this group wants to remind all spectator that no LIVE birds were harmed in tonights activities. Thank you to all participants and we look forward to next years championship.
