Lucas Lanes – Newsletter – July 2014
“Like” Lucas Lanes on Facebook
It’s going to be another fun season at Lucas Lanes. We will have a lot of new exciting bowlers this year and we welcome back some bowlers who didn’t bowl with us this past season. We have started another major renovation but at this time we don’t know how long it will take to complete. Improvements that you won’t see are the $7,000.00 in machine parts that we just ordered. A lot of things are being added to our Wall Of Fame area. We will continue to host fun tournaments. Our Eliminator and our Middle Of The Road will be held at least monthly. Chris is now officially a USBC Silver Level Coach. We plan to have more coaching sessions for those of you who want to improve your game. We are working on a completely new Pro Shop so we can provide the best possible service. We will have a couple of new fun things next season. We will have Lucas Lanes Fantasy League and a Lucas Lanes Bowling Family Vacation, more information below. Blackwell will host the 2015 Oklahoma State USBC Jamboree and Banquet. We would like to have 16 or more teams again for the State Tournament next April. We need more teams for the State Mixed Tournament in June. This year’s Ladies All-Events winner was Blackwell bowler Kaytlyn Goodwin.
Lucas Lanes “Bowling Family” Vacation
El Paso, Texas – June 2015
USBC National Open Championship
Thanks to Facebook, we have almost six teams signed up to go. At this point we have two full left handed teams to bowl on the same pair of lanes and two right handed teams that would also bowl together. One of our bowlers, USBC Silver Level Coach Brian Adelgren, will give us tips on how to break a lane down for better scoring. Chances are we can have eight teams fully signed up by September. The cost is $180.00 per bowler and you can pay it in three payments of $60.00 each if you want. Bowlers can be men or women, older or younger and higher or lower averages. The tournament has two divisions. As always, we will have optional activities. Contact Ron or Chris for more information.
Lucas Lanes “Fantasy” League
This will be a lot of fun. We want to get 10 teams of five bowlers with at least one bowler on each team being out of town Facebook Friends. The 10 out of town bowlers will all be on different teams. The names of the 40 local bowlers will be drawn. Thus 10 teams of five bowling 10 weeks. Each bowler will choose a league that they want their scores to be taken from each week. The week runs from Monday to Sunday. Our out of town bowlers will need to send us their scores if they are not already on the internet. We will finalize a standing sheet not later than Wednesday following the Monday-Sunday week. The cost per bowler is $10.00 for $500.00 total plus Lucas Lanes will add $50.00 for $550.00 total. There will be many ways to get your $10.00 back. The prize list: Team: $125.00 – 1st place, $100.00 – 2nd place, $75.00 – 3rd place, $50.00 – 4th place. $50.00 - High team series scratch, $50.00 – High team series handicap, $50.00 – High team game scratch, $50.00 – High team game handicap. If you or your league doesn’t bowl one week, your full average will be used as a blind score. The league will start in September. You can sign up for it now.
