Wii Bowling Winners

Congratulations to Lauren Burton, Marcus Thompson, and Evan Fullerton--they were the top three bowlers in our first Wii Bowling Tournament. Each received a GameStop giftcard. All of the players were awesome, I sure can't bowl on the Wii as well as you all did. Check out the photos in our teen Flickr sets. Everyone had a great time and can't wait for the next tournament! You'll be happy to hear that we're going to have many more Wii and Playstation2 gaming days here soon, especially in the summer. Keep your eye on the Events page or our newsletter for the next dates.

Our very first Wii Bowling Tournament for teens was a lot of fun last night, and it was awesome to see how well everyone did.  Congratulations to the following 14 top bowlers, who will be competing in tomorrow's Finals: Jacob B, Zack C, Andrew S, Lauren B, Ian F, Tommy M, Marcus T, Evan F, Ethan H, Mark M, Ronald H, Sam H, Nick B, and Phebe S. Come out and cheer them on! If we finish early there will be some free play on the Wii for whoever is interested. Thanks again to Gamestop for providing help and a second Wii for us to use.
