Yesterday my husband and I bowled in a city tournament at the house we bowl league at which happened to also be our first tournament. We decided we could do it for fun and learn what it was like to be in a tournament. We bowled division II doubles and open singles

Well guess what! We won doubles, I won open singles and my husband was second in open singles! I would have never thought going into this that we had any shot of placing much less doing as well as we did.

Just wanted to share this with people that would understand why I was so freaking excited!

Thanks for listening (reading)!

In doubles I shot a 428 and David (my husband) shot a 468 for a 896. In singles I shot a 535 and David shot a 525. I still can't believe we won. It was in a field of 10. Not a big entry but I'm happy with it.
