MJMA Membership Opportunity

With the end of the High School bowling season, MJMA will begin its second half beginning March 12th and 13th at Richfield Bowl in Richfield, Michigan. This season we have a unique opportunity for those trying to qualify for the Championship event in June.

We have five events between now and the Championships which means that any new member that starts with MJMA at the event at Richfield Bowl, would have the chance to qualify for the Championships. With our requirements being to bowl five events as a member and make one cut to match play to earn an invitation to the Monroe Championships, if you start this coming weekend, you would still have the chance to do just that.

KALAMAZOO PROVES TO BE TOUGHER THAN EXPECTED

The annual stop in Kalamazoo, Michigan for the Michigan Junior Masters Association was a little tougher than many expected it would be. The scoring pace on the 33 foot pattern was very low and not one bowler averaged 200 for the six-game qualifying block. Alex Ouellette (Linwood, MI) navigated the pattern to take the top qualifier spot for the guys with an 1196 score while Taylor Davis (Burton, MI) led the way for the ladies with a 1033 six-game total.
