Yours truly drew up and proposed the Tahoe Disaster Relief Bowling Tournament, which will be sponsored by the TSBA and Tahoe Bowl. The proposal was submitted at the bowling board meeting on Oct. 8 and passed unanimously. Vic Nagy, proprietor of Tahoe Bowl, has also endorsed and backed the tournament. The tournament is open to all league bowlers, non-league members, open bowlers, adults and children of all ages. There will be five divisions in the tournament:

1. Bumper bowling – 4-7 years old

2. Preps – 8-12 years old

3. Juniors – 13-18 years old

4. Adults – men

5. Adults – women

Bowlers will have their three games posted along with a $5 entry fee. All participants in each division will then roll off in a tournament in each division with the top three bowlers receiving awards. Tournament entries will begin on Oct. 15. Sign-ups are at the Tahoe Bowl. Call (530) 544-3700 to reserve your spot now. Tournament qualifying will be for four consecutive weeks with the grand tournament to follow. Businesses and people who wish to donate to the Disaster Relief Tournament, can contact Nagy at (530) 544-3700, or Shott at (530) 541-5513, to make contributions, donations or prizes. A representative of the TSBA will be contacting everyone for donations, so let’s all help keep America great.
