In Memory: Our bowling community lost another of its favorite members with the passing of Scott Irvine. For those that knew Scott he was a fireball of competitiveness but was always a gracious and fun guy to bowl with and against. Scott was also well known for his favorite saying “Yeah Baby” when he strung together consecutive strikes. He was a long time bowler at Port Huron Lanes, and the Tuesday and Friday leagues that he bowled in will certainly never be the same without his smile or his friendliness, and of course the sound of his “Yeah Baby” catch phrase. Please keep Sue and all of Scott’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
The Senior Singles tournament will be October 17 at Strikers Entertainment Center. All bowlers 50 and over in Port Huron bowling associations are eligible.
