Wacky Bowling


Our Spring Tournament Series continues on Friday, March 14th with the Wacky Bowling Tournament. In this event, teams of three will bowl three games in three unique ways: sitting, lying down, and backwards between the legs! The two high-scoring teams will move on to a championship match incorporating all three wacky bowling styles. The wackiest team with the most pins knocked down will be the winner!

This tournament is open to everyone, but we only have room for six teams of three. The cost is $4 per bowler. Practice will begin at 6:45pm with games starting at 7pm. Sign up today at the counter or send us an e-mail!


Crown Tournament Recap

Our first ever Crown Tournament was held on Friday, February 29th. In this tournament, bowlers tried to get the fewest pins possible, but failing to hit pins (such as rolling a gutterball) counted as a strike or spare. If a bowler managed to pick off the 7 pin and the 10 pin, that is called a crown. Six participants earned Crowns, including Jen Randles who accomplished the feat three times (two of them back-to-back). Avi Miner, OC student and lane attendant, was eventually “crowned” the champion. Thanks to all the bowlers who made this event a success!

February Recap

If you thought January was a big month score-wise, February was even bigger. On the Men’s side, the bowler of the year race became incredibly tight as Dan Getler took the lead earning 15 points: 14 through Oberlin Classic and 1 through Singles Shootout. Junior bowler Griffin Sabelli also moved up in the rankings, earning 5 points for his 278 game and 6 points for his 709 series (his first 700 series at College Lanes), both earned in the Friday Juniors league. Top honors for series went to Russ Thieret, who had a huge night February 25 in the Classic league. His 751 series is the current high series for College Lanes this season. The last time the Men’s Monthly High Series board had all 700+ scores was back in March 2002.

On the Women’s Scoreboard, Katy Reid came close to adding some ink to the Women’s 600 Club when she bowled a 599 in the Kaydettes league. Although she missed out on 5 bonus points, she is maintaining her dominance in the Bowler of the Year points race.

Summer Leagues

Many of our leagues will be running well into April and May, but it is not too early to start making your summer bowling plans. We are starting to formulate our Summer League schedule and would love your input. If you are interested in bowling, we would love to hear your ideas on formats, days and times. Or if you just want to get on our contact list for whatever leagues we come up with, we can let you know what our plans are once we finalize the summer schedule. Ask your friendly lane attendant for more information!
