Our second week of team bowling…

Strike Ball
Julien Rivera – open
Wilson Taveras – open

The Bowlers’ Club Fund collected $36.

Reminder:
If you know you are going to miss a week of bowling, you can always pre-bowl for that week. Just arrange a time with the center to come in and bowl (Saturday after bowling is usually a good time). Be sure to write down your scores as a back up. Or if you would rather stay digital, take a pic of your scores and email them scores@cbjb.org or upload them in a message (not a post) to the Facebook page.

More safety tips. Here are things you can do while you’re bowling to minimize the risk of accidents:

  • Keep hands and fingers away from the ball return.
  • When your ball returns, wait for it to come to a complete stop before grabing it.
  • As you grab your ball, watch for other balls that may follow.
  • Keep alert, watch for other bowlers.
  • After releasing your ball, return to the settee area on your lane. Do not return on a different lane.
  • Make sure your bowling shoes are tied and your shoe laces do not drag on the floor.
  • If your pants legs drag on the floor, either pull them up or cuff them.
  • Do not use any electronic devices (cell phones, iPods, etc) while bowling.
  • Only bowlers and coaches are allowed in the settee area. Your friends, siblings and parents are required to remain behind the settee area.

If you do not understand any of these rules, ask a coach to explain it. If you have any additional safety concerns, stop bowling and ask a coach for advice.

Safety Bowling Tips #1

Safety should be your first consideration when bowling. Although bowling is normally a very safe sport, accidents can happen. There are several things the bowler can do to minimize the risk of accidents:

  • No running.
  • No horse play.
  • No food or drinks in the settee area. Keep them behind the settee area on the tables provided.
  • Make sure you double check the bottom of your bowling shoes for moisture or power. Moisture can cause your bowling shoes to stick and powder can cause your bowling shoes to slip.
  • If you use any type of powder, do not use it while on the approach and make sure you do not get any on the floor.
  • When leaving the settee area, either change to your street shoes or place a shoe cover on your sliding shoe.
  • On rainy or snowy days, remove your street shoes before entering the settee area.

If you do not understand any of these rules, ask a coach to explain it. If you have any additional safety concerns, stop bowling and ask a coach for advice.
