2nd Annual Bob Weidt No-Tap bowling tournament

Welcome Friends and Family of Bob Weidt,

Todd Scott here from Good Times of Olean. I first want to thank everyone that came out to show support for our beloved Bob last year for our first annual Bob Weidt Memorial No-Tap bowling tournament. We had greater support than we expected and had to put a 2nd shift together.

The event proceeds and donations amounted to a total of $1,146.00 raised for the cause and K9’s for Warriors were very pleased with the event, as was Bob’s family. I have been in touch with the family and they would very much like to re-create last year’s event with the same or better success this year.

A sign up sheet is placed at the front desk for this year’s touranment which will be held on the 17th of April (a Tuesday) with the first shift going off at 6pm.

Donations are graciously accepted whether you bowl or not.

Thanks for any help you can give….Bob would be proud!  We miss you buddy.

–Todd
