I would love to bowl in the youth masters tournament, in dayton ohio, on May 9, 2009. 3 days before my birthday! The problem is, I cant afford it, because I dont have a job. If anyone would like to sponsor me I would be so appriciative! Thanks to anyone and everyone. I have called around and local business' wont sponsor because they have used all "sponsor" money. either that or they have another excuse. frown

Bottom of page is all the tourney info. smile

If you don't mind me asking, what about your parents? Maybe they could help you out? Or some friends you could do some favors for in exchange? Maybe you can cut some lawns?

Well you definitely have Initiative with a capital I, but making a ton of posts in various forums asking for handouts all at once (ball, sponsor, etc) might be a bit overkill.

If you posted a informative thread about yourself, your bowling, how you are progressing, and then added at the end about everything you might receive a more even/informed response.

best of luck

Go to league nights and see who is sponsoring the teams. Restaurants, local businesses, and Insurance cos. may come up with an additional few bucks if they see their name is being recognized at the lanes. You may get $10 from 10 companies rather that 1 business for $100.

You want to bowl in a SCRATCH tourney with a 150 average and you want someone to sponsor you????

That's not called sponsoring, that's called a gift!

Sponsors will want you to be able to show their name around and get something for their money.

Although this tourney might be an interesting experience for you you will disappear too fast to make it worth a sponsors while to invest in you.

Maybe you could do what Erin suggested in the other post, try to find a part time job.

I've upped my average, so up yours!

Well, don't worry too much about it because there are LOTS of bowlers that wish that could bowl tournaments because they lack the funds, for whatever reason. They just don't bowl.

And, don't worry, there will always be another bowling tournament.

I believe you want to bowl a tournament, but I question your choice to post your request for funds on here, because of all the internet scams floating around, because there is no real way to verify the legitimacy of your request, and if you will really bowl the tournament if you get the money.

Sorry, but we all have to treats posts like this with a dose of reality.

Have you checked with your bowling alley? If you have a relationship with them, they may be willing to help you out depending on their situation, and their confidence in you as a bowler.
