On March 16, the sixth annual Geoff Gardner Memorial Bowling Tournament was held at Westgate Bowl. Forty-eight doubles teams took part in the event, which is held in honor of Westgate Bowl and Wellington’s manager Geoff Gardner.
The big winners in the event are the youth bowlers in Winona. Each year, the Gardner family has donated money raised from the sponsorship of the tournament to the Winona High School bowling teams and to the Geoff Gardner Memorial Youth Bowling Tournament, which awards $1,000 per year in scholarships.
This event could not be held without the tournament sponsors. The tournament committee and Gardner family would also like to send a special thank you to Al Smith and all the businesses that donated door prizes.
