Doniphan Area Bowling Group is Lottery Team of the Month
Congratulations to the "Ripley County Bowling Center Wednesday Night Cartel" of Doniphan! The group was recognized as the Lottery Team of the Month for April as part of the Missouri Lottery’s 2007 Lottery Captains promotion. The promotion awards a Lottery players group with prizes and a feature at Molottery.com each month during the calendar year.
The "Ripley County Bowling Center Wednesday Night Cartel" is a group of 40 members of the Wednesday night bowling league at The Bowling Center, Highway 160 in Doniphan. The members are: Missy Sisco (team captain), Joyce Beal, Jennifer Burke, Toni Charles, Caryn Duska, Tanya Freeman, Lindsey Gambling, Dana Griffin, Jackie Harder, Amy Holland, Cindy Hutchins, Vivian Inman, Leann Kelly, Trish Klepzig, Debbie Lathum, Dwan Lathum, Siegrid Maness, Betty Nowak, Mary Pennington , Mary Ponder, Bertha Portwood, Alta Richmond, Melissa Richmond, Sylvia Richmond, Dawn and John Ross, Dema Scott, Talena Short, Chris Sipes, Samantha Sisco, Sheri Stewart, Roxie West, Ruthie Wiggins and Doug and Karen Williamson, all of Doniphan; and George Curry, Shirley Curry, Gail Hurt, Ed Milburn and Kathy Wyatt, all of Fairdealing.
The members of the "Ripley County Bowling Center Wednesday Night Cartel" started playing together about two years ago when their bowling league started. They play Powerball at The Bowling Center each Wednesday night when they bowl. Each team member puts in $1. They let the computer use Quick Pick to choose their numbers, and they keep their tickets in the bowling alley’s office each week.
"So far we’ve only won a few dollars here and there, and we have reinvested it in the next drawing," Sisco said.
Sisco said dreams of winning keep the team playing each week. Team members dream of retiring and taking cruises if they win a jackpot someday.
