Pictures on Wednesday

We will be taking team pictures on Wednesday in New Hampton. The order form is here. Printed versions will be available at practice.

Bowlers should wear jerseys and jeans. Those who do not have jerseys yet will be receiving them at Monday’s practice. It is very important that bowlers have their jerseys and jeans on Wednesday. Those not in proper uniform will not be in the picture. Since we are in New Hampton, there will not be time for anyone to run proper attire to the bowling alley. Please unsure you have this taken care of.

The team photo will be taken with masks. Individuals will have the option of taking a picture with or without a mask.

Varsity teams will now head back home on Friday to host Oelwein. Home meets are currently varsity only with 2 spectators per participant allowed.  Live stream for the meet.


First meet

Our first meet is coming this Tuesday against Columbus at Cadillac XBC, starting at 3:45. Each bowling participant will be given 2 passes to allow spectators into the event. No other spectators are allowed. We are hoping to stream the event online, but we are still working through a few details for this away event. We are confident that we will be able to stream home events in the future, but away events impose an additional level of difficulty.

Masks will be required! Details on face covering enforcement:
– Applies to all fans of indoor contests in conference and non-conference match-ups
– Applies for all high school and middle school contests
– Must wear a face covering to enter the event
– Face coverings must cover your nose and mouth
– Face coverings should be worn the entire time a fan is in the building
– Fans who do not wear a face covering may be asked to leave

Additionally, last week, bowlers competing were given Jerseys and uniform instructions. Bowlers are required to wear their jersey and black pants while bowling. Bowlers may wear additional layers if needed under their jersey, but the jersey must be worn on top and fully visible. Many bowlers may have grown since last year and need to validate their pants from last season still fit.


Bowling Ball Maintenance

In upcoming practices we will be discussing bowling ball maintenance. To facilitate this Coaches will be making home-made ball cleaner which can be produced much more cost effectively than store bought cleaner. If your bowler would like a bottle of ball cleaner, they should bring a bottle of rubbing alcohol (90%+) to practice on Monday. Coaches will use the rubbing alcohol in conjunction with other products to make the cleaner. Bowlers will get a proportionate amount of cleaner to what they bring in rubbing alcohol. One bottle will get them through the year.

Additionally, we have once again bought microfiber bowling towels in bulk. Bowlers may get a towel from us on Monday for $1 if they so desire (completely optional). This year the towels are grey.
