All bowling results have been posted, so you can read to see if you qualified for the newspaper. At the end of the month our first tournament, the Halloween Scotch Doubles, will take place. Entry fee will be $20 per team, which will consist of any two bowlers.

Our featured guest columnist this week is Chuck Crites, and his tip of the week is on consistency.

Crites’ Tip of the Week: Consistency

Bowling is a sport that can and has humbled every one of us, yet it is a sport anyone can participate and improve. There are no secrets to better bowling, but there are better ways. Here are some tips for you to try and remember.

First, get your delivery down as pat as you can. Then find the most comfortable spot on the lane for you as your target. It can be the dots, some 8 feet down the lane, but better yet, the arrows at about 15 feet, and the most common target area for righties, between the second and third arrows.

Once in your stance, create your line to the target. Keep your eye on the target all the way through and watch the ball until you see it go over the target mark or miss it. Then look up to see the results. Be loose, let the bowling ball do the work. Do not let people and events sway you and don’t try to be like someone else. In general, if you’re loose, the general reaction of the ball is much more effective. Most of all, have fun.
