New…2011 Scratch Classic Tournament
Lynn Matsubara

The California USBC Association has re-vamped an old classic format. We present the 2011 Scratch Classic Tournament.

Does everyone remember the old format for the Youth State Scratch Tournament back in the 80’s? There was one weekend of qualifying in the north and south. Twenty-four (24) bowlers from each location qualified to the finals that were held the following weekend in Fresno. Well, we are bringing that great format back!

The format for this new event will be six (6) games scratch of qualifying at Cal Bowl in Lakewood and Cloverleaf Bowl in Fremont. There will be four (4) squads held (6 games scratch) and you can re-enter at a lower fee as many times needed to make the cut. The qualifying will be September 10-11 and the finals for the top 48 bowlers (24 from each location) will be held September 17-18 at AMF Rodeo Lanes in Fresno. All 48 bowlers will cash in the finals and there will be bonus awards offered at the qualifiers and at the finals.

Entries postmarked by September 1st are $125.00. On-site entries are $150.00. This is brand new and we hope that you will try it out! There will be side pots and brackets held each squad and also a bowling ball raffle held at each site. Bowling balls were graciously donated from Off The Sheet Pro Shop ( Thank you Tony Reyes and Lindsey Wong!

The two past State Queens and Masters Champions: Laurie Soto and Dave Wodka will be earning a free berth into this event since those two events have been put on hiatus.

Since this is a singles event, scratch youth bowlers are eligible to participate. They just need to sign the scholarship waiver prior to the qualifying event.

Please forward this information to those scratch bowlers you think would be interested. Entries can be downloaded from our website

This is another event that just proves that “The Best Bowlers Come From California”.
