Super Bowling Game Results
48 members played in our Super Bowling event. For bowling we played as two teams of Patriots vs. Falcons. Players randomly drew a chip to determine whether they played for the Falcons or the Patriots. After drawing, each team then organized themselves into 8 triples sub-teams bowling. In our Super Bowling system, each sub-team games compete for points to their respective Super Bowling Team. At the half time, a ‘field goal’, or 3 points, is scored. At the final of the bowling, the winning sub-teams received a ‘touchdown, or 7 points, for winning their game. In event of ties in the sub-games, each team received points. The Patriots won the ‘game’ by a composite core of 57 to 30.
Don Stewart, with the lottery square of 3-7, won the Super Bowling pot.
