Our beloved friend and bowling partner, Josh Dew, has had a brain injury. This is the post from his GoFundMe page:

On Thursday morning Josh experienced a major brain bleed and was life flighted to Boise. Doctors told family that he was not expected to make it and if he did he could be paralyzed and blind. However, the Josh we all know and love proved his stubbornness and is already improving. He is showing signs of not being blind and moving his hands and feet. Having just bought a house and having extensive medical costs, we are setting this up as a way to take some pressure off the family so they can focus on positive thinking and recovery. Everyone’s prayers and kindness are appreciated during this difficult time. 

Josh and Lindy are family to us, so we are doing everything possible to help them. Lindy won’t be working for a while and Josh will be in recovery for some time. Things are looking better by the day, but there’s still quite a road ahead.

Josh at our most recent Monte Carlo night

Freedom Lanes and Sidewinder Strikes Pro Shop are holding a Monte Carlo fundraiser for Josh and Lindy on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at Freedom Lanes in Mountain Home. The cost is $20 per person, most of which will go directly to the Dew family to help with expenses. Check-in starts at 6PM and bowling will start at 7PM. Bowling is cash only, please, and there’s no ATM on site. We will be holding a silent auction as well (credit cards are fine to pay for auction items) and will be selling raffle tickets for strike pots and other various items. Cash donations and gift cards are welcomed and encouraged. As with other Monte Carlo nights, bowling is 18 and over only, but all are welcome to come and watch. There will be music, laughter and fun for everyone!

With COVID still looming, we have a limited number of bowling spaces, so please call 208-587-4448 to reserve your space. Masks are encouraged but not required – and we will maintain social distancing as well.

If you have any questions, or if you wish to donate a silent auction item, please send us an email! We look forward to hearing from you, and we look forward to seeing you on the 24th!
