3rd DDB Cup Is A Duckpin Bowling Tourney

The start of the 3rd DDB Cup opened at Tokyok's Bowling Lanes, National Highway, General Santos City on September 19, 2009.

At the initiative of BND Alumni Council under Mairelle Paje, RN, a group of BNDees and guests bowled through the night hopeful to get awards.

All the hopefuls who played in the qualifying round were noticeably rusty due to a long layoff from the game. This prompted FJ Babate to comment, "Pag magaling ka talaga, hindi mo na kailangan ng praktis."

Jovelyn Alaba, RN--the Florence Nightingale Institute's director-- went to the lanes that night decided not to bowl, but after a round of chikahan and a few "kantiyaw" from the other hopefuls, agreed to show her much talked about skill.

True to his word the director on her first game, bowled a good round of pinfalls. Which prompted the young lass to conclude, "duckpin is a game of skill, you either have it or you really have to practice hard."

Kim was the "relatively" top notcher for this event.

In another development, the post-Cup event was held at the Music Box. This most sought after videoke-bar in the city was the site of another talent-laden showcase: singing.
