Pine Bowl hosted the Annual Team Challenge for the 24th consecutive year. Participants came from all over the quad-state area. Bowlers from Greeley, Windsor, Fort Collins, Colorado, Alliance, Kimball Scottsbluff, Nebraska, Sturgis South Dakota, New England, North Dakota as well as from Cheyenne and Pine Bluffs, Wyoming.
This is a double elimination tournament that spanned two days worth of bowling.
There were 24 registered 4 man teams in the competition and Saturday, teams who had been eliminated twice, were out of the running for matches on Sunday.
Sunday would start out with the top 16 teams. Teams were assigned a lane and would bowl one game per lane. Games won, plus total pins (for tie-breaker) would then move the winner to the upper 8 teams and losers would have another chance to stay in with the double elimination.
Saturday's winner of the losers bracket - Fear Not - would come back on Sunday to finish in second place!
Teams from Pine Bluffs placed third. First place team was from Cheyenne, Wyoming. Bobby Boyd new to the team and to Pine Bowl gave praises for the staff at being so personable and welcoming.
The tournament is a major success for Pine Bluffs, especially with their teams placing third. Next year's will be bigger and better as it is the 25th!!
