46th Annual Old Timers Bowling Tournament
The Old Timers Tournament changed dates for the first time this year only. It was a last minute decision to move the tournament date to July 18th, 2015, when the news that 20th Century Lanes had changed ownership and would be closed from July 27th, 2015 to January 1, 2016.
And the Old Timers teams responded with a resounding turn-out despite AMF pulling 10 of the 50 lanes after the invitations to captains had been mailed. Down to 40 lanes, it became necessary to cut the tournament off before reaching the customary 50 teams leaving some captains who had bowled for many years without a spot in this year’s tournament.
The good news is, when the lanes open again on January 1, 2016, they will be completely remodeled with all 50 lanes set up with the latest technology in equipment, and The Old Timers will again resume on the third Saturday in October, 2016.
