BOWLING: Seniors state tourney at Galaxy this weekend

RICHMOND — More than 100 bowlers from all sections of Kentucky will be in Richmond this weekend to participate in the 30th annual state seniors tournament. There will be sessions at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.

The keglers will bowl six games each with the actual score plus handicaps determining the winners.

Bowlers will compete in six age groups ranging from 50-54 to 75 and older. The winners in each age group will be eligible to bowl in the national seniors tournament in Reno, Nev., in July 2014.

This tourney is generally referred to as the men’s state tournament, but women are eligible to participate following the merger of the American Bowling Congress and the Women’s International Bowling Congress into the United States Bowling Congress in 2005.

The senior women’s state tournament will be held at Galaxy on Oct. 5-6.
