BOWLING: Summer leagues roll into action at Galaxy

RICHMOND — The transition from winter leagues to summer leagues is nearly complete at Galaxy.

The non-sanctioned Cash Money League is the only winter league still active.

The first league to start its summer season was the free lineage Tuesday No-tap League, which opened play last week.

Two free lineage leagues will start this week. A non-sanctioned doubles league will open play Wednesday and a sanctioned league with four-person teams will roll into action on Friday.

Another sanctioned league with four-person teams will open Monday, May 6. All these leagues use a 6:30 p.m. starting time.

A fifth free lineage league has been added to the options available at Galaxy this summer. The non-sanctioned Cash Money League with four-person teams will open play at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 3. The first place team in this league is guaranteed a prize of $1,000.

The weekly fee for each of the free lineage leagues is $10 per bowler each week. All of the fees go toward the prize fund which will result in large pay outs at the end of the season.

Bowlers should call Galaxy at 624-4444 or come early to the first session to join one or more of these leagues.
