Most everybody is still learning skills, rules, and etiquette. In fact, that's really the point. What better way to learn than to bowl against bowlers close to your skill level and under the watchful eyes of vet markers (some with no end to their advice).

This is a fun novice introduction to tournament play.

Here's your chance at getting your feet wet with regards to tournament bowling right here at LBLBC. And, vets can't play, so these are free points!

Just the novices from our club will compete against one another for bragging rights, your name on a plaque dating back to who knows when, a mention in our LBLBC eBlast, and a little cash to boot.

Points go towards the yearly Bowler of the Year prize (and free green fees for the next year). 

The Particulars

Arrive at 8:30am (or earlier to practice), bring your own lunch, and pay your 5 bucks. The organizers will fill out scorecards with opponent team numbers and rink numbers for each of your 3 matches. They'll call you up by name to blindly pick a card and you walk to your first rink and meet your 1st opponent.

The first one to reach 15 pts is the winner (you'll bowl as many ends it takes) for the match. Each person keeps the match score on their own scorecard. At the end of the match, you compare the cards, make sure they're the same, sign your opponent's scorecard, and turn them in at the office for the organizer to update the standings sheet. When you get your cards back, it's off to match #2.

After the match around noonish, it's lunch time (and group commiseration) in the clubhouse or on the patio (adult beverage time if you're so inclined) followed by the final match #3.

The more participants, the more places awarded (usually 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places).
