New season, changes to awards for local bowlers

Special to the Herald-LeaderAugust 9, 2014 

The new bowling season began last week, and the local association took over the non-award score achievement awards. The Greater Lexington USBC has a new program in place and is ready for the start of the fall season.

The Greater Lexington USBC will recognize the following achievements. There will be awards based on average for a 200, 225 or 275 game, as well as series awards based on average for a 500, 600 or 700 series.

Achievement awards will also be presented for a Triplicate Series, that is three games of the same score; the 4-6-7-10 split, more commonly known as the Big Four; the 7-10 split and for an all-spare game.

There will also be an award for a Dutch 200 game, in which a bowler alternates strikes and spares, starting with a strike in Frame 1.

■ League secretaries will receive award applications in their league supplies and should submit these to the Greater Lexington USBC so that bowlers can receive recognition. League officers with questions should direct them to any Greater Lexington USBC board member.

■ The Greater Lexington USBC Hall of Fame Induction and Luncheon will be Saturday, Aug. 16 at noon at the Ramada Inn on North Broadway.

The tickets are $20 and are available from any Greater Lexington USBC Officer or Director. This year's inductees are Melinda Craig, Dixie Mattingly and Joe Wilson.
