SASSY BUT CLASSY WINNERS!
to Serena Goodwin and Dena Spain, 2015 TNBA National Tournament Senior

tournament. Dena bowled with a 161 average (career high game and set of 276
and 688). She is the founder of Sassy But Classy Ladies Bowling Club
of Temple Hills, MD. Serena bowled with a 162 average (career high game and
set of 279 and 654). She is the current president of the Sassy But Classy
Ladies Bowling Club. Both ladies are blissfully retired.
Founded in 2009, the Sassy But Classy Ladies Bowling Club was established to
promote participation in local, regional and national bowling tournaments,
and fun and fellowship with women of all ages. The club currently has nearly
100 members. The club’s charitable endeavors include adopting a local school
where they donate supplies, uniforms and volunteer services.
THE KING SAYS THANKS!
past year has been very trying, yet very fulfilling. There were times that I
wanted to quit, but encouragement and support from so many who said, “We Got
You”, soften the pressures of the journey.
I find a more difficult task now in trying to say thanks to so many.
First, my wife, Helen, and family for your support during my absences from
home. To TNBA’s Executive Committee for their continued support of the King
and Queen contest; the King and Queen Contest coordinator (Queen Boss), Ms.
Pauline Davis; all the TNBA kings and queens. GWBS Mixed Bowling
League, my rock of support, I can’t name names for fear of leaving someone
out. Ms. Patsy Staten, my right hand, Metro Gents, my new brothers; Trudy
Peoples, Victor Pringle who were steadfast in their support and would not
concede or let me. The wisdom and contributions from Carolyn Guest, Johnnie
Jones, Suzette Dent, Mike Whitted, Yvette Gilbert, Lawrence Lanier, can’t be
listed. Thanks to AMF Capital Plaza management, leagues, and any others not
mentioned, for your support.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
