The “Average Jim Award” goes to the bowler that finishes in the middle of the standings. The award is named after Jim O’Reilly from Wabasha for everything he does for bowling over the years. It is a spin off from the “Average Joe” saying. We all think that Jim is definitely not “average”, but that’s how he likes to think of himself! In fact, he is so selfless, he funds this award himself! Thank you Jim O’Reilly for all the “not so average things” you do for bowling!
