With six weeks into the 2021-22 season, bowlers at the former Kiamesha Lanes received the sudden announcement that the bowling center had been sold and the site would become the location of a grocery store.
This sudden announcement directly impacted three leagues with a total of 36 teams, but a welcome surprise came forth when Brigette Willis, the owner of Port Jervis Bowl, met with the teams from the Kiamesha Lanes Monday Men's league and offered them 12 lanes on Monday with the league starting on October 25.
Almost half of the Monday Men's league agreed to switch their league to Port Jervis Bowl, and teams from the Tuesday Night Mixed Firefighter league and the Friday Mixed league joined as well, to fill the 12-lane house with the newly created Monday Night Mixed League.
Several bowlers from Kiamesha also switched their bowling to Colonial Lanes in Chester.
Sullivan County bowling teams making up the new 12-team Monday Mixed league at Port Jervis bowl include Dominicks, L&B Tack, 3S & 1P, Parker Racing, Boys Night Out, The Fugawees, Bob The Builder, We God Balls, Catskill Cookies, and there are three teams that have yet to name their sponsor.
Good luck to the new league and best wishes to Brigette Willis, owner and manager of Port Jervis Bowl.
USBC Approves Pre-Pandemic Counts
The United States Bowling Congress Board of Directors has approved two resolutions that allow delegate representation for annual association meetings to be based on membership from the 2018-2019 season.
Due to the pandemic, significantly varying standards of federal, state and local orders impacted bowling center operations. As a result, USBC membership in the 2019-2020 seasons does not accurately reflect the historical membership for some USBC associations.
The 2022 USBC annual meeting will be held at the The Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas April 25-28.
