Feb Fab 5 50_50 WinnersIn the One-Shot-Pot game we had two winners split the $260 pot; Ben Cleveland and Paul Gloede.

Tim Felsinger won a Roto Grip Defiant Soul bowling ball after having his name drawn from the ticket bucket.  We believe this is Tim’s second ball raffle he won along with his three earned as the 2008-09 Bowler of the Year.

Speaking of the Bowler of the Year, Steve DeKerf amassed 283 points throughout the season to win the Roto Grip Bowler of the year over Tim Felsinger (246) and Troy Felsinger (234) and Paul Gloede (228).  Steve selected two Defiant Soul’s and a Defiant Edge bowling ball.

Steve also won the bowling ball raffle at the Holiday Classic choosing the Roto Grip Defiant bowling ball – That’s FOUR bowling balls this year Steve has won on the 5-Star Tour!!
