The problem with ladies scratch events is that you are catering to such a small market. In our house I think there are only 2 ladies over 200, three if you count ladies over 190. And we have about 550 bowlers in our house.

I'm quite dissapointed in women in general when it comes to bowling. There just isn't much interest there in getting better or elevating their game to its maximum.

But good luck with the tournament and I hope you do pull some great bowlers to participate.

Thanks Erin. Luckily I have met some fellow regional/national players over the years that will provide a solid base for the event, but we are not seeing any new faces and that is where my concern is. The biggest problem is always the "there is not enough prize money for me to attend" line. That drives me crazy as it creates a nasty circle whereby you cannot get a center interested if you cannot get participation, with low participation the prize fund has to be low, and on and on.

I must admit to disappointment with women in this sport as well, and agree that it is a small market, but we cannot expect it to expand if we are unwilling to get involved. Geez, I sure hope this all gets sorted out before I end up in the senior bracket of the up and coming PWBA (or whatever we will call ourselves).

Hey makinshots I just checked my schedule and my state tournament events are on the first weekend of June. I thought it at the time of the event that you're pulling together. I would love to attend but how much is everything from the entry fees to how long would my stay be? If you want to you can e-mail me with the details. [email protected] From there I can determine if my budget can afford all of the expenses. I wish that I had a sponsor.

You won't need a sponsor for this, believe me, the entry fee is only $80 (one day event) but I would like to see you come out for the "bowl with the ladies" event the night before which lowers your entry fee to $60. I am emailing you with the entry form.

I talked to Liz in Taylor, Michigan this last week. She is very nice and I wish her much success. And she was throwing Storm laugh
