Entry blanks are now circulating for the 20th annual Sarasota-Manatee County USBC Bowling Association’s senior championship tournament, to be conducted at Englewood Bowl on the weekend of Nov. 12-13.
The tournament is open to all USBC-certified Florida bowlers who will be at least 50 years of age as of the time of participation. Entry fee is $18 per bowler per event, plus an optional $2 all-events fee.
All prizes will be on a handicap (90 percent of 220) basis, and squad times will be at 1 and 4 p.m. on both tournament days.
Four-player team and all-events will be contested in one division, but singles and doubles will be in two age classifications: Division A (50-64) and Division B (65-up). Teams and doubles pairings may consist of men and women in any combination.
Re-entries will be permitted. However, no player may cash in doubles more than once with the same partner, and no one can cash more than once in singles. There is no closing date, and re-entries will be accepted up to one hour prior to the last scheduled squad.
Complete rules and information can be found on the entry blanks, which are available at most area bowling centers.
