18th Annual Nikkei Games Bowling Event

August 19th , 2017
– 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. Continue reading 18th Annual Nikkei Games Bowling Event
