Mike Hefley’s Bowling Tech: First-time youth bowlers to get new bowling ball.
Regency youth bowlers will be starting round number two of the season for league bowling on this coming Saturday, January 17, at 10 a.m.
This new format with three different rounds per year gives Regency youth bowlers the option of bowling one, two or all three rounds with no penalty for not bowling all of them.
This second round starting this Saturday will have a new feature for first-time junior bowlers that have never bowled league before – they will receive a NEW bowling ball for bowling this 13-week session! There are two divisions – we have bumper bowlers for the little kids usually six years and under, and the older junior bowlers are combined on doubles teams.
The cost is $12 per week per bowler which includes a new bowling ball for first-time junior league bowlers. Also included for first-time junior bowlers, the GEUSBC Youth Board will be picking up the $17 cost for your first-time sanction card. We also have coaches on hand every Saturday during bowling to help with instructional and technical questions about bowling. For more information, call Regency Lanes at (661) 325-6428 or be there this Saturday by 9:40 a.m. to join in on the action.

Congratulations to Taft’s Zack Long, on reaching yet another achievement in his career by qualifying for Jr. Gold this past weekend while competing in a JBT event at AMF Inca Lanes in Yuma, AZ. He will be headed to Chicago this summer to compete in the Jr. Gold main tournament. Long bowls both at West Side Lanes in Taft and Regency Lanes. Long also ended up placing 8th in the JBT over the weekend.
Carlie Medina III and Craig Henderson teamed up to compete in the recent San Joaquin Bowling Club tournament held on January 4 at Kings County Bowl in Hanford. Medina contributed games of 255-260-253-212-257 to help them tie for 5th and make the roll-off but they lost and ended up placing 6th overall. Medina’s solid bowling helped him win three side pots and do a clean sweep in brackets plus he won the singles scratch series by 140 pins! He bowled with his Brunswick Radical Guru.

The holidays brought the news of the loss of two long-time bowlers in our community.
Larry Langdon, Sr. passed away on Dec. 24. He was the husband of the late Marge Langdon who was the manager at Regency Bowling Center.
Thelma Oveson passed away on Dec. 28. She bowled for years in the Bakersfield 500 Club and in night leagues on Peggy Alexander’s team.
Our condolences to their families during this time of grief.
