On Oct.6. the Schuknechts travelled to Niagara Falls to bowl in an Open Pairs Tournament. Steve skipped Barb to a 3 game win with 42 and overplus 3 to place second out of 14 teams.
In the first game against Gary Pickering and Rosemary Stadnyk of Niagara Falls, the Schuknechts won 13-10 in a very close 12-end game.
The Burlington team of Frank Francella and John Duguay gave Schuknecht the full 18 points with an overplus of 3, while holding onto ten points themselves, having given up two 6-enders and one 5-ender making up the second game.
The third game was a real nail-biter when Schuknecht coming home was down two and scored three, allowing him to “eat his last bowl” to win 12-11 against Niagara’s Jim and Marg Lepere.
