The Madison County Bowling Association’s annual Christmas tournament will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday.
This will be a no-tap tournament in which nine pins down with the first ball in a frame counts as a strike.
The man and woman with the highest series scores will earn $25 and the man and woman with the second-highest series scores will receive $15.
Bowlers will receive a ticket for each strike bowled. At the conclusion of the tournament, 12 tickets will be drawn and the lucky ticket holders will choose an unmarked envelope containing from $5 to $50.
The entry fee is $15 to bowl three games. The tournament is open to all bowlers.
