Lorraine Bowls Away the Competition

 Congratulations go out to Lorraine Chapter, in Butler, PA, for being the winners for DeMolay International, Region II, in the Postal Bowling Competition. That means the guys at Lorraine beat out teams from seven other states with their skills and high scores.

What is the Postal Bowling Tournament, you may ask? Well, according to DeMolay International, here is how it works:

  • Hold a chapter bowling event.
  • Send your results to DeMolay headquarters.
  • Find out how you stack up against other chapters from around the globe.

Pretty simple, huh?

Awards are presented in the following categories:

  • Individual High Game
  • Individual High Series
  • Regional High Team Series
  • International High Team Series

The tournament does have some other rules though...

All teams must bowl between a set time period (the next one is from November 30, 2012, and January 30, 2013.)  Scores submitted that were bowled during another time period will not be accepted.  All entries must be postmarked by February 1, 2013 and received no later than February 15, 2013.

Entry fee is: $10 per five (5) member team.

Ten pin bowling only (no handicaps).  A chapter may enter more than one team; however, each bowler may compete on only one team.  A team may enter only once.  Each team member must bowl three (3) lines with the team, and each team member must be an active DeMolay in good standing.

The members of the team must be decided before competition play begins.  Bowlers are allowed to practice; however, a team must decide that it is beginning a competition game before the first frame is bowled. (You cannot list the best five players out of ten, or the best three games out of five, etc.)

Awards will be sent to each recipient's Executive Officer for presentation.  All teams entered will receive a list of the winners.

So, plan a bowling event for your Chapter next year, and take control of the lanes!
