Description: Sharpen your pencils and pick an apple for the teacher. After a short Christmas break itís time to head back to school.

It begins at 9:00 a.m and runs until 11:00 a.m. Numbers are handed out before registration begins and people are called back according to when they arrived, so itís first come, first served.

Wii Bowling League
Time: Wednesdays 10:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Cost: $10.00 per season members
$10.00 per season non-members
Description: Instead of wooden lanes and pins, Wii Bowlers hit the virtual lanes using Nintendoís Wii game system. Wii bowling tends to start out easy, building confidence, while you get use to bowling with a hand held remote. However, the better you bowl, the harder it can become. You can put too much spin and throw a gutterball. You can even release it behind your and watch the audience scatter. Those who have trouble picking up a bowling ball will have no trouble lifting the remote control, which is a small plastic rectangular stick weighing only a few ounces. Play is done on our three big screen TVs. They are brand new 55\" HD TVs donated by our Wii Bowlers. If you want you can sign up to be a substitute to get your feet wet, or bring in a team. If you don\'t have other players we will try our best to put you onto an existing team. No matter which way you go, youíll still have lots of fun in our Wii Bowling League. Sessions are only six weeks long. Next league registration takes place at 1:30pm on September 14th, with bowling starting on September 21st.

2014 Golf Tournament
By: Mike Sylva
The Highland Senior Centerís held itís biggest event of the year on April 17th. Our annual Golf Tournament is our largest fundraiser and, as always, was a grand success. There were a few worried minds as temperatures soared into summerlike numbers the days before. However, come golf day, clouds moved in to take the heat out of the picture. This provided for great golf weather. Once all the golfers finished their rounds everyone retreated to the nineteenth hole for some food, prizes, and awards.
Leading the pact in the regular division (and overall) was the team of the Unforgettables (Tim Evans, Bob Sturner, Mike Horton, and Ben Hartnell). Their score of 57 put them into a card-off with San Manuel and S.G. Contruction, but their back 9 score gave them the edge. Taking the top honors in the Senior Division were Jim Kline, Dale Telizyn, Joe Guerra, and Ron Pickinpaugh. Next year we will be naming the Law Enforcement Perpetual Trophy as the Public Safety Perpetual Trophy, as for the first time ever, a Fire team took top honors. Congratulations to the San Bernardino County Professional Firefighters, Local 935, who beat a record number 6 other teams in their division.
Our many thanks to our major sponsors - San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, Pat Fischer & Family, Cal Fire (aka:CDF), San Bernardino County Professional Firefighters, Local 935, Toyota of San Bernardino, and Jim Brulte and California Strategies. Also, thanks to all of our other various money and product sponsors, our golf committee volunteers. Finally, weíd like to thank all of the other volunteers, golfers, and everyone else who helped support the center contribute to a wonderful day and a successful fundraiser.
