– Saturday only –
AMF Carter Lanes – Fullerton (Lemon / 91 Freeway)
Features a simple all scratch format by age divisions. Juniors (kids ages 2 – 18) and Adults (19 – ?? “so far 87 is the oldest participant we have had) are all bowling in their own age divisions – also separated by Men & Women. For team events we have Senior Team divisions and regular women and men divisions (see entry).
For the UNDER 10 kids we have many divisions in each age group , so say the 5 year olds will probably have 4 groups of 3 bowlers, so each bowler will receive a medal (AGES 9 & UNDER ONLY ARE GUARANTEED MEDALS) …… For kids 10 & over , they will be grouped in groups of about 6 or 7 in each age (Top 3 will receive medals) … but, if there are only 4 13 year-olds, then there will only be 4 in that division. Kids ( 8 & Under only) will get the bumpers …….
Every kid ( 9 & UNDER ONLY) is guaranteed a 1st, 2nd or 3rd in their division and a medal. There are many divisions in each age group so all those kids will get a medal ….. kids 10 & OVER have to earn their medals in groups no larger than 7 kids. All Adults will earn medals in groups of no larger than 7 also.
This is a FUN tournament and you can get as competitive as you like … kids have a blast every year!!!!
Medals are presented to the winners after each of the squads for each of the divisions and the winners take medalist pictures ….
Bowling towels will be given to the adult singles and team medalists stitched in gold, silver or bronze instead of medals- or if you like medals you can have them also !
5 years ago , we had the largest turnout ever for the kids @ 135!! it was an amazing sight to see on that 10am squad!
Last year we still had a nice 110 kids!
Adult Team Event has been a solid 30 team participation … for the past 3 years ….
Adult singles has been about a solid 75-100 bowlers every year.
Adults squads will have OPTIONAL side pots, brackets and raffles too!!!
If you would like to FORM YOUR OWN DIVISIONS (minimum 6 in your group) for Adult or Kids divisions singles or divisions of minimum of 3 for adult team events, feel free to ….with your friends, church group, work, organization, etc ….. and the top 3 in your division will get medals ( or towels for adult divisions)

If you want to bowl with certain other people, just make a note on the entry and i will see what i can do. Just remember though bumpers are reserved for the kids ( 8 & under only) … so we don’t usually pair older kids with the younger kids.
Let’s Promote the Kids to bowl and participate in other Nikkei Games Sports as well at http://www.nikkeigames.org.
Please pass this to anybody interested in bowling this fun event ….. both kids & adults!
Thanks very much to the OC Sansei & Tozai committees for their hard work in putting this tournament on. Many of these bowlers are the ones donating to the kid’s goodie bags also a big thank you … If you are or know anybody interested in putting something in the kid’s goody bag, just let me know.
Do you or your kids want to learn how to bowl? We have some advanced bowlers and coaches willing to have a helpful clinic for bowlers interested in learning how to bowl (Please email me back if you are interested in this). We are targeting kids over 8 years old ( and adults since they would be more serious to learn (younger than 8 will be accepted as long as they are willing to learn to bowl ) – we have had 5 clinics and they have been quite enjoyable and successful – 2 hours of lessons and bowling for less than $10.00 (prices will vary depending on how much the bowling alley charges us)! Cost would be just for the bowling, no other charges are applied, coaches are doing this free. Contact me for information on this!Thanks to Anthony Santos and Romeo Natividad for all their help in putting the clinic together!
Thanks very much,
