    Sounds like a cool league.

    I joined a parent/child league the first half of last fall and it was sanctioned and they wanted you to do the SafeSport thing. I can't remember if I did it or not. They "asked" us to do it but sort of admitted that it had been a real problem getting people to do it so they were gonna kinda "leave it alone" unless they got a complaint. I think their hope was everyone would do it and if everyone didn't...then they'd just hope that none of the parents complained or requested that they follow through with making them do it.

    I joined a challenge league this summer...not knowing it was going to be essentially youth bowlers. The guy running the center, I guess, was a high school coach so he started a summer challenge league and most of his team worked at the center and joined the league. I was the only person over the age of 25 and one of only two people over the age of 18. Then there were about 5 kids ranging from 15-17. I usually held my own...but could never win a stepladder match.

    I only was in the league a couple weeks before transferring to my Tuesday summer league. Only had a chance to bowl on "Winding Road" and "Route 66" patterns...which are Kegal Navigation Sport Series patterns.

    I think you would remember if you had actually done the safe sport training. Most people who I know that have taken it complained about how long it took to complete.

    Some of our adult bowlers have complained about having the kids in the league. Some of it may be jealousy. These kids have already bowled 3 games in youth league and now they’re throwing 4 more games with more speed and revs than I ever had and and they act like they could roll another 7 games after we’re done. Part of it is that they are teenagers and they’re still trying to figure out how to act like adults.

    Buddies Summer Challenge league
    8/30/21

    Pattern: PWBA Players 49’

    Set 1: 159, 119

    Set 2: 162, 145

    This was the final week and a double position round. I was in 20th place out of 40. The bowler in 19th didn’t show up, and didn’t get a sub so I had to beat a blind score of 172 to take any points. We must have dropped to 21 & 22 because I wound up with the same AWOL opponent the second set but the other bowlers on the pair were the guy subbing for the first place bowler,( who couldn’t be caught after set one and the last place bowler.

    It didn’t feel like my game was off by very much but paid the maximum penalty for small errors.

    Buddies Winter Challenge league.

    Pattern: a 42’ Junior Gold one.

    Scores: 197, 194, 158

    First night of the season and a different format from the summer. Only three games, 4 or 5 bowlers per pair, every one moves one pair right after each game, one point is earned for each player you beat. The league manager is only disclosing the pattern length for the Junior Gold patterns since the name of the pattern is not announced in advance in JG competition. Giving the length just to keep the whining from the adults to a minimum.

    We have 27 bowlers, a few more than in the recent past. It’s a mix of the middle aged guys who have been in the league for at least the last ten years or so, some college age kids who are still in the area, and some of the high school age kids from our junior league. At the league meeting it was mention that those people over 18 would have to complete the Safe Sport training.

    Buddies Winter Challenge week 4

    Pattern: Junior Gold 45’

    133, 174, 194

    The low score in the first game was not due to having to figure out a new pattern. My spare ball kept sticking on my hand. If I get some time this week I need to get my fit checked.

    Buddies winter Challenge league week 5

    Same pattern as last week

    I don't want to divulge my scores other than to say they were embarrassing.

    I thought I had last week’s problems straightened out. Not!
