    Never heard of a temp. certification card. Sounds like a scam to me. Probably send in for anyone that gets a honor score. Others they just keep the $5.
    Around here in the Detroit area it is harder to find a non certified league than a certified one. Most that aren't certified are women's and mixed leagues. Or senior leagues.

    Definitely agree that the temporary sanction seems sketchy (granted I have not researched it). Sanction is somewhere around $20 a year so I bet they are just taking the bet that they don't have a honor score rate of 25% and would just pay the entire amount if you did get an honor score, pocketing the rest of the money.

    I'm with everyone else here. I got the itch to bowl league again, and our center does them late summer to spring. I'd advise just waiting on a short summer league to get back into it.

    Hey Matt. Were you able to get into a league? Guys were talking last night about a tournament March 10th in Crafton at Noble lanes. I told them I'll go so this will be my first tournament since at least about 1986 when I was in 11th grade. Should be fun! lol

    Boatman - I believe that is the No-Tap tournament that is held monthly. I have missed the last two but I will be there this time. They are blast and they oil the lanes nice and good. i will check with the gal that runs it. my best finish so far is second so hoping to finally take 1st for once this go round!


    I am in two leagues but neither is sanctioned. I really just want my average logged so I am probably just going to start my own summer league over in west mifflin at playmor (its a brunswick center)

    Well that was fun...lol. Should have went. It was a 47' Scorpion pattern. Extremely difficult. 615ish handicap was making the field. I made the field with a 619 handicap series (520 scratch). Balls would not hook at all
