Two more leagues have been added to the “Mutterings” – The Wednesday Classic Commercial and The Friday Mixed Nuts – bringing the total number of leagues to seven for the winter season.

The additions are two of the more powerful leagues at the Surf, although scores on Week 1 were somewhat mild. The bowlers promise to improve over the coming weeks.

Here are highlights for Week 1 of the two additions;
