The Strike Zone


Kings and Queens

Cindy Werth

Kings & Queens Senior Mixed Bowling League is gearing up for another exciting season at Brunswick Kyrene Lanes. The 2017/2018 season was, indeed, one to remember in several ways. One of our lady bowlers, Doreen Crickon, bowled a 300 game to the cheers of the entire league. That was a day we will never forget. A couple weeks later, Doreen bowled a 299 game. Doreen and her husband Bill, who is also an excellent bowler, were new members of the league last season. Can’t wait to see what that duo has in store for us in the 2018/2019 season!

Our preseason league meeting will be held at Kyrene Lanes on Wednesday, September 26, 2018, at 12:30 p.m. in the café. If you are 50 or over, you should come see what this league is all about. Kings & Queens is a USBC-sanctioned league consisting of four-person teams. Members are not required to be residents of Sun Lakes. The first week of competition begins Wednesday, October 3, 2018, for 27 weeks. All skill levels are encouraged to join this popular, fun league. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to call or text Cindy Werth, secretary/treasurer, at 480-510-7200. More information will be posted in the September issue.

Plan to attend the Bowling League meeting on September 24 at 10:30 a.m. at Brunswick Lanes. President Hal Newton will present the league rules and regulations, answer questions and discuss items concerning bowling fees, annual year-end banquet, etc. You will also find out who your new teammates will be for the next season. New teams are formed each year determined by members’ bowling averages in order to give each team an equal start. The meeting is usually followed by free practice bowling.

Regulation bowling, “the new season,” begins on Monday, October 1, and runs through mid-April with a break at the Christmas holiday.
