LETTER TO THE EDITOR: High school bowlers grateful for support

The Bemidji High School varsity and junior varsity bowlers would like to thank AmeriPride, Tom Burlingame, Jim Wynne Sr., J.T. Wynne, Steve Vosika of Bemidji Bowl, and the Bemidji Pioneer.

Thank you to Ameripride for sponsoring our teams and providing us with team jerseys. We would also like to thank Tom Burlingame for volunteering his time to coach and provide his expertise to us. Jim Wynne Sr. and J.T. Wynne have been extremely gracious in assisting us with necessary bowling equipment needs and providing advice. Thank you to Steve Vosika of Bemidji Bowl for providing a nice facility for us to practice at and for hosting one of the conference tournaments. We would also like to thank the Bemidji Pioneer for printing our tournament summaries each week.

We sincerely appreciate Craig Forte and Scott Hinners for donating their time to coach us also. Last but not least, a sincere thank you to all our parents, grandparents and family members for attending our tournaments each weekend and cheering us on.

Words do not sufficiently describe our sincere appreciation for your support of Minnesota high school bowling. The varsity bowlers will be advancing to the Minnesota Qualifying Tournament to be held Saturday, Nov. 18 at Super Bowl in Ramsey, and we could not have done it without our supporters.

Rebecca Theis, Bemidji, on behalf of the Minnesota high school bowlers from Bemidji.
