For the Havre Daily News
I have been in contact with Nora Grubb of Big Sandy. There are some Havre keglers traveling there, and they are interested in their scores being here. As of right now, I do not know when this will happen but I hope it will be soon.
The pro tour is again being shown on ESPN on Sunday mornings at 11. It can be quite interesting to watch, as the pros seem to have trouble with the oil pattern at times. We pick our balls up once a week for a three-game series and complain that we cannot score big. They bowl more games in a week than some of us do in an entire season and they have problems with adjusting. Just shows that bowling is no easy sport.
I was sent a list of tournament dates for YABA. I will be putting them in as the dates near. The YBC In-House Qualifying will take place Jan. 3-16. The Traveling League will be at Anaconda's Copper City Bowl the weekend of Jan. 8.
I am sorry to say that I did not receive any women's state tourney blanks, or any other information on it. I am trying to find a blank, and if I do, I will run off copies of it for those who need one. If someone out there has one and is not using it, please let me know.
