Who is Baltimore's best? Bowling

June 13, 1993|By Glenn Small | Glenn Small,Staff Writer

Bill Mend wants to know who the best bowler in Baltimore is.

To find out, Mend is organizing a six-week tournament that begins July 15 at Country Club Lanes.

This scratch tournament will travel to five other bowling centers, and at each center, bowlers will roll five games over five pairs of lanes.

Whoever has knocked down the most pins at the end will be

named Baltimore's best bowler.

By having the tournament at six different houses, Mend is creating a fair test. The winner will be someone who can adjust to different lane conditions.

And bowling 30 games is equal to about half of a winter league.
