Senior Match Play bowling event set
The York County Senior Match Play Bowling Tournament will be held Saturday, Jan. 30, and Sunday, Jan. 31.
Four-game qualifying sessions will be held Saturday 10 a.m. at Hanover Bowling Centre and 2 p.m. at Suburban Bowlerama. One in three bowlers from each age group (50-59, 60-66 and 67 and older) advance to match play.
Six-game modified match play begins 10 a.m., Sunday, at Lion Bowl. Bowlers carry over the number of pins more than 1,600 from qualifying to match play.
In modified match play, bowlers receive plus or minus the number of pins over or under 200 each game, and the top half of the field, based on individual game results, also receives bonus pins. The bowler with the highest score receives the most bonus pins, and the amount of bonus pins decreases with each subsequent position. Bonus pins are awarded after each game.
Cost is $90 per bowler if paid before Tuesday, Jan. 26, and $100 after that date. The fee includes a hot buffet at Suburban Bowlerama prior to the 2 p.m. qualifying session. To register, call Lion Bowl at (717) 244-6215 or send payment to Lion Bowl, 90 Martin St., Red Lion, Pa., 17356.
