Sutton named president of IBA

(Continued)

We are running three summer leagues this season on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Sundays we have a youth league playing to 35 bowlers with a great reward. At the end of the eight week program everyone gets a brand new bowling ball. Tuesday we are running the first-ever Singles league. This league is unique as you are your own team and you bowl against everyone every game. We have 16 bowlers in this handicapped league with averages ranging from 105 to 212. The point system is set up so if you finish first in a game you just beat 15 people so you get 15 points, if you finish 8th then you get 7 points. We have seen bowlers move from 14th place to second place in one week with this system. It is going well for its first run and we hiope to expand upon it next summer. On Thursday we have basically the biggest summer league I remember in recent history. The bowling center is full on Thursday nights with 12 teams competing in the Mixed No Tap league. Always a popular format as bowlers get strikes for getting 9 or 10 on the first ball. Brett Bennett is doing great as he is averaging 275 for 24 games so far. In one four week stretch Brett put together the following games: 278-287-300-246-300-300-300-298-277-300-246-300. Todd Howard and James Isaac have both had perfect nights shooting a 900 series. Top average for ladies is 197 for Jenny Kuhn. Jenny and Natasha Hunter have high ladies game at 278.

Hope your summer is going well, but isn`t it going fast! Team captains should be expecting that organizational call during this month. See you soon!
