Rhoads, Poland win titles at PV 500 Club tournaments

Peggy Rhoads went into the Pahrump Valley 500 Club’s 8-pin no-tap tournament Saturday with a 152 average and came out with two wins and $96.

Rhoads rolled games of 253, 300 and 300, which, with her 21 handicap, gave her a 1,063 series and first place in the event, 23 pins better than Billie Biddle, who also rolled two 300 games under the 8-pin no-tap format, in which anything more than 8 pins is counted as a strike.

Rhoads pocketed $64 for winning the tournament and another $32 for winning the handicap side pot. Biddle was right behind her in both, earning $52 for finishing second in the tournament and $29 for finishing second in the handicap side pot.

Over in the Groupies division for men, Ed Poland had the day’s only 1,000 series, shooting 285, 265 and 300 with a 156 handicap to finish at 1,006, good enough to win $64. Three bowlers were in a tight race behind Poland, with Ralph Johnson (986, $54), Larry Attebery (983, $44) and Bob Riley (973, $35) running second through fourth.

On the women’s side, Judie Johnson (1,013, $42) and June Williams (1,012, $34) also cracked 1,000 for the day, with Williams matching Rhoads and Biddle by rolling 300 in the second and third games. Johnson also earned $26 for finishing third in the handicap side pot. Poland was right behind her in the side pot race, adding $24 to his winnings.

Renee Green and Fran Gobbi each rolled a 300 game, while in the Groupies division, Zid Cabuena and Frank Medina each rolled two while Roy Green rolled one. Renee Green’s 300 was the middle game of an 873 series that included games of 296 and 277 and was good enough to win the scratch side pot and $27. Attebery (862, $21) and Medina (861, $12) also competed for the scratch side pot.

Attebery was one of the day’s big winners, netting $83 through his bowling and winning the 50/50.
