After 15 years of doing the Spirit, I REALLY need to hang up my computer and let someone else put a new
twist into the Spirit. If you would be willing to take care of putting together the Spirit once a month for the
months of September through June, please let me know. I just have too many other obligations at this time
and it’s also time for some new “blood” to give this newsletter a fresh new look! You can contact me at
email@example.com or call me at 315-575-1677 for any questions you may have.
Due to some scheduling conflicts and in an attempt to get as many participants as possible for this years Masters Bowling Tournament, the schedule has been adjusted as follows:
Everyone will bowl on February 22nd at 11:30 AM or 2:30 PM. As in the past few years, the first round of qualifying will be single elimination. Winners of the first round will bowl again on Sunday 2/23 at 11:30 AM with the losers of those matches bowling a second match on Sunday at 2:30 PM.
Winners and 1 time losers from the Sunday 2/23 rounds will continue on Saturday and Sunday 2/29 and 3/1 with the Final Four being determined on by the end of bowling on Sunday 3/1.
Finals will be Saturday March 7th at 3:00 pm
The Masters Tournament Format will remain unchanged this season. The first matches (Feb. 8th) of the tournament will be SINGLE
ELIMINATION matches, quickly taking 32 bowlers down to 16. These 16 winners will then begin double eliminations. The idea is to
shorten the length of time needed to commit, resulting in a greater number of bowlers participating. As in years past, we’ll hold a
“Bowler Calcutta” auction on Friday night, February 7th in the main bar of the Club beginning at 7:00 PM SHARP.
Championship matches, will be announced shortly. Watch your Turner Blast for the details. The championship match
will be formatted as a 4 BOWLER LADDER ROLL OFF: 2 game matches, beginning with 4th place vs. third. The winner of
that match then takes on the 2" place finalist, and the winner of that match will then try to beat the one undefeated
The final matches should roll along at a fast and furious pace, with the 4 Bowlers competing for the Masters Champion
title. After this has been determined, pictures will be taken, awards will be presented and following that, think CELEBRATION
The journey begins with the 10th annual Arlene Sutor Qualifying Tournament which begins the week of January 13th is open
to all bowlers with an established average whether they can manage the Masters or not. A “secret score” and first place prizes
will be awarded. As before, qualifying takes place during regular league bowling. A “Last Chance” qualifying round will be
held on February 1st at 12:00 Noon for any non-league bowlers or league bowlers who want to give it one last chance to better
their qualifying position. League Qualifying costs are $7.00 for the 1st qualifying attempt and $5.00 for subsequent attempts.
Fee for Non-League bowlers qualifying in the Last Chance round will be $10.00.
