Transcript 20 Montrose voice / June 18,1982 homerun ofthe season. Poor old Briar Patch had a rough day last Sunday when they faced a determined Jim's Gym team. The Gym wrecked the Patch to the tune of 16-5. David Brown of Jim's Gym went home smiling with a 5 for 5 day and Mike Scog- gins walked off with happy feet after being 4 for 5. Jim's Gym is only one game out of first place with a team that is improving. The first place Galleon might be in for some stormy weather. The Galleon did not exactly sail over the Montrose Voice last week, although they did win, 13-11. If Barry Pirkey or Bill Fike had not shown up to play last week, things may have been different. But they did, and history is history. Barry and Bill each had two homeruns. And that kind of thing is hard to beat. According to Jerry DeSale, the Voice players said after the game that if they could have kept the ball in the park, they might have won the game. ■ Monday bowlers to play for position Soon the incredibly tight stadings ofthe MSA Monday Night Bowling League may loosen up a bit. They will be playing for position, with the top teams pitted against one another in order to get a better spread. In the meantime, the top teams continue to be efficiency-apartment-complex close. In Division A, the Barnyard Hoers got a bit of breathing room when they were the winningest team in the top four. Daddy's lost four, Eurotan International lost four, and the 69ers lost three. So, now those three teams are still close to one another. Breathing up their necks are three teams who are tied as far as games won for the fifth place in Division A: Gutter Trash, Lowest Lane and Tammany Haul. In Division B, only 71 pins separate the number one Bushwackers and the number two E/J's Protein Suppliments. Division C continues to be a free-for-all with the top four teams within two and a half games of each other. Division D saw some shifting as Next-T- Last dropped out of the top four by losing all four to Boozers Too. Gator-Aid slipped down after losing one to Busy Bees, and Happy Trails maintained top spot. The team that had the most excitment in Division D was Galleon One, however. They not only won all four to move up to the number two spot, but they set a couple of Division D summer records. They had a record high team series with 3141 and a record high game with 1094. Rich Corder of Galleon One had a high series of 577 and a high game of 220. Teammate Rich Ryan (a top-ranked tennis player) bowled a respectable 211. ■ High Rollers continue on Thursday June 3 saw seven bowlers on Thursday with 200 games. On June 10, there were six, including three ofthe top pin-poppers of the previous week. Ray Hubbard not only had the high game, but he managed to come up with two 200 games all on his own (224, 201). Also rolling along with two 200 games was Bob Akins (204, 200) who had two 200 games plus the high game last week (235). Bob's Tropical Fruit teammate, Steve McConaughy, who had three 200's last week, popped 205 pins in one game this week. The efforts of the whole team were enough to move JuBt Marion & Lynn's Tropical Fruit to the number three spot in the standings. Kindred Spirits' Aces High (not Leather & Lace, as reported last week) have moved to the number one spot again over For a Few Daddies More, who have again moved to number two. Chases slipped down to number five from number three, but the top teams are still so close that anything can happen. Besides the standings battles, there were two new records set for the MSA Eddie Chavez Mixed Bowling League summer session. Salt & Pepper II had a high series record 3098, while For a Few Daddies More had a super high team game of 1112! Roll, roll, pop, pop—there they go! ■ Last week of WSL Regular season play Although the Renegades go unbeaten into the last week of regular season play of the MSA Women's Softball League, they still have not clinched first place. Either the Hell Raisers or the Ducks could take it away. The second game next Sunday between the Hell Raisers and the Renegades should determine if the Renegades remian on top. The last game between the Ducks and the Hell Raisers will either determine the top or the next two places in the standings. Every game should be rip-roaring and healthy. The WSL post-season tournament will be held on July 31 and August 1 and they hope to be able to play at Fonde Park where the season games take place. "If not," said Claire Vasilioy, "we will take anything with a concession stand." Women's Softball League first of its kind in America Montrose Sports Association's Women's Softball League is the first gay women's softball league in America. Martha Richie, Sudie Raif and Eddie Chavez are given credit with invisioning the league when they met on New Years Day 1982. The first step was to proceed with a formal publicized meeting to initiate community interest. The first organizational meeting was held at Marion Coleman's Kindred Spirits. Publicity was provided by Martha Richie and Sudie Raif, who made posters and flyers that were distributed in the community. At this first meeting, the league was firmly established and elected a board which placed Martha Richie as president, Kelly Caswell as vice-president, Claire Vasilioy as secretary, Mona Lopez as treasurer and "Murt" Babint as Chimps 'talk' their way out of medical experiment Two chimpanzees who've learned to communicate via sign language have put their skills to good use, reports the New York Times. According to a Humane Society spokesman, the chimps used sign language to tell coordinator. Later the league proceeded to adopt the rules of the Montrose Sports Association and also the same "purpose" which states that "the specific and primary purpose is to foster sports competition among the membership for the pleasure and recreation of its members, with special interest to the gay community." Along with the specification of the league's purpose, a statement of nondiscrimination was approved in which all ofthe community is encouraged to participate in the Women's Softball League. After these important points were adopted the league was able to organize into nine teams. Much has been accomplished in the league's first year, most notably the unification of women working for the common goal of excitement, fun and competition in the sport of softball. Participants also were active in fund raising events such as the Basket of Cheer, the garage sale and an unannounced event to coincide with Juneteenth. The league is also supporting the Montorse Sports Association float for Gay Pride Week. Next year the Women's Softball League has its aim set even higher. Additional sponsors would provide an opportunity for every woman who wants to play on a team. Another hope is for more organizational togetherness and last but not least, less rain. The league encourages anyone who wishes to participate in this organization to join and become part ofthe league. The Women's Softball League has started a new tradition of competition as well as fun, in Houston and in America. keepers they "wanted out" of a New York University experiment ofthe effectiveness of hepatitis vaccines. After some prodding from animal rights groups, university officials finally decided to honor the chimps' requests not to be used as guinea pigs. Instead, officials will either donate the chimps to a primate refuge or to Florida's Lion Country Safari amusement park. The animal rights groups are lobbying for the primate refuge, since another chimp was bitten in half by a hippopotamus at the Florida park, in what officials there call a "fluke" accident.
