Leland Wins When Sea Coast Bowls for Charity - November 2009

Each Fall Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty holds a bowling event for charity at Cardinal Lanes in Wilmington on Shipyard Boulevard. Last night I bowled with the team from the Leland office and, while we didn't win the overall competition, we won in other ways, one in specific. But read on.

In the photo are Earl and Linda Cline, brokers at the Leland office. Linda bowled, very well in fact, and Earl cheered us on.

Leland Office Manager Kari Essig was our powerhouse, scoring the highest of our group.

Our Managing Broker Denise Kinney (in the orange shirt) stopped by to give us words of encouragement. Denise was bowling with a team from the Southport office where she used to work. As you likely know, old bowling alliances are hard to totally walk away from. (And for people who know Denise, does she look like her daughter in this picture or what?)

Linda walking back trying not to gloat after a particularly good frame finish.

Here's a shot of some of the other folks from Sea Coast, notably super bowler Mike Rokoski from the Wilmington office and to his right with her hands on her hips looking up at the scoring displays, Sea Coast Academy's Sue Wehner, who each year organizes this event. Thanks again, Sue.

Okay, so here's how the Leland office won in this bowling competition. We shoulda won anyway for the most consistent scoring of any team. In the first game the spread between our lowest (that would be me at 103) and highest scores (Kari's 113) was only 10 points. Pretty cool if you ask me. So congrats, Leland for being consistent performers who show up for charity and for a good time.
