While we are talking about tournaments, the Men's Association Championship got under way Saturday and will run through Sunday the 29th with the last squad starting at 4:30 pm. If you have not entered you can still do so up to 30 minutes ahead of each squad during the tournament. Both Monday and Thursday night's men's league has paid entry so if you have not entered your team please do so. Tournament bowling is more exciting than league so let's go fellows. We want a big turn out.
