TRENT: Bowling association cancels city mixed tournament

The City of Firsts USBC Asso-ciation regrets to tell the bowling community that the city mixed tourn-ament has been canceled. The reason — there were not enough entries to make it to make it feasible. There needed to be at least 15 teams to cover the cost of lineage, awards and paperwork.

Hopefully in the future this tournament will draw more interest and become an event again.

In other bowling news:

• Entry forms for the senior tournament should be in the centers this week. The entry deadline is Nov. 10. The tournament will be rolled at Don Lowry Lanes, at 3 p.m. on Nov. 23 and at 1 p.m. on Nov. 24. The tournament will consist of singles and doubles. You can bowl doubles more than once, but it must be with a different partner. Remember, you must be at least 50 years old to participate in this tournament. There will be different age brackets for men and for women. If you have any questions about the entry form, there should be a board member available at the start of all leagues who should be able to help. So get your partner, pick your time, get your entry form and get signed up.

• Ladies, the Midwest Tournament is filling fast and if you want a special time, you better get your entry in quick. The entry deadline isn’t until April but at this time there are already more than 300 entries. This has become a very popular tournament and with it being in our state this year, the entries are likely up because Indiana is in the center of the six states that host it on a rotating basis. The organizers are hoping there will be more than 1,000 teams entered this year. So if you and your team plan on going, get your team entered before it’s too late.
