Local Bowling Report: Holden's Hot Wheels tourney a big success


The Holden's Hot Wheels Tournament was a success. On Saturday and Sunday bowlers took to the lanes. Junior bowlers doing their best to strike or leave an easy spare for their partner to pick up, which sometimes was a big challenge for the elder bowler.

Hi Line Lanes would like to thank all who bowled on both days. Also a big thank you to Christie and Shawn Holden for a fine job well done in providing the food and running the tournament. Thanks again.

TOURNEY TRAIL: P.B.A. Masters from Henderson, Nevada. 1st match Brian Smith 251 to Dan McCelland's 212. 2nd match Brian Smith 180 to Mike Fagan's 222. Championship match Chris Barnes 213 to Mike Fagan's 246.

Up-coming tournaments, Men's City Tournament and Dewey No-Tap.

On- going tournament: Snowy Lanes, Lewistown Team and Singles.

Over the week end I told a young bowler he had to bowl with the arm he established his average with, which was his right hand. I noticed he was using a two handed delivery in picking up some spares. I told him that was illegal. I stand corrected as long as your two handed delivery is the dominant hand that you established your average with is legal. (Rule 118 b/3 and 118 b/4). We see more and more of this all the time with the ever popular delivery.

TIP OF THE WEEK: Keep focused at all times, no matter which happens, you must keep your mind in the game. Self hypnosis is a good thing to try. Try relaxing in a chair before you come to bowl and imagine bowling a game. When you get to the lanes it will help you focus. I have used this technique for years.
