Opening Day at Gateway Indoor was a huge success. We had all lanes filled for both morning and afternoon bowling, with about eight new participants in the afternoon jitney. Thanks for coming out to everyone and we look forward to seeing you again in the coming weeks.
Regular Triples League will start next Wednesday morning with ten teams playing a round robin draw. Afternoon jitney will continue as usual.
Only ten days until we kick off our Indoor Season at Gateway Recreation Center, 1717 Gateway Road, at the corner of Gateway and Bonner. Bowling entrance is off the parking lot on the west side.
We will have ten teams in our morning league again this year, with several newcommers. This satisfies our main objective of getting more participants into our competitive leagues, and hopefully help them get ready for provincial and national competition. WELCOME TO ALL!
Everyone should arrive by 9:45 at the latest in order to get underway at 10:00. Cost is $3.00 per game and will be collected prior to game time.
In the afternoon we will run a recreational jitney draw. We are anxious to have new participants this winter as our numbers were down last season. New members are welcome and instruction and equipment will be provided.
Come and bring some friends!
