On March 7, the seventh annual Geoff Gardner Memorial Bowling Tournament was held at Westgate Bowl. A field of 45 doubles teams took part in the event, which is held in honor of Westgate Bowl and Wellington’s manager Geoff Gardner.
The big winner in the event is the youth bowlers in Winona. Each year the Gardner family has donated money raised from the sponsorship of the tournament to the high school bowling team in Winona and to the Geoff Gardner Memorial Youth Bowling Tournament, which awards $1,000 per year in scholarship money. This year’s youth tournament was held on Feb. 8.
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 sponsors and contributors to the event.
