.... Entries are now outt for the Sacramento tournament!
For those of you new to
JANBA (Japanese American National Bowling Association) , the tournament
is a week-long tournament, but you can enter events for only 1 day or as many
as 5 days its up to you ... The tournament runs every year in a different city
in the first FULL week of March. Ragtime doubles kicks off the tournament on sunday
Monday :Mixed doubles events are run all day
Women's 4-gamer and Men's 6-gamer all day
Wednesday: women's and men's team
events all day * Main-Event
Thursday: doubles for the men's and women's *
Friday: doubles concludes, women's and men's singles * Main Event
Saturday: singles concludes on saturday morning & Awards Banquet.
The tournament is scratch , but you are scheduled with bowlers
in your same average group. The idea is to win or cash in your division , and
if you win that and you are high overall , you can win the main board which consists
of all divisions, which would be quite an honor!! You don't ask for squad times
you will be assigned a squad time based on your average (or team's average in
non-singles events). You will get a schedule prior to the tournament, just make
sure you save the whole day in case you aren't sure what time you will bowl. Just
be flexible, plan to get there the day before the event. Since the main events
are team , singles and doubles, you can bowl those on wed, thur, and friday. Saturday
night is the Awards banquet, where all awards are presented and unclaimed prize
moneys can be picked up ... it's really a lot of fun at the banquet, so attend
, since this is the last time you see everybody for another year.
