-Strawberry Festival Qualifier
The second day of bowling competition on Turkey Run features the second qualifying event for the WV Singles State Championship. Like most of the courses throughout the year, Turkey Run offers several different challenges. Sweeping turns, uphill, downhill, long straight stretches, and little of everything, making this course suitable for all skill sets. This is the final opportunity for bowlers to earn a spot in the WV State Championship in all grades, Novice 1-4, and Women’s. Novice 4 is for beginners, and everyone is encouraged to compete. The top bowlers in each grade will advance to the WV Singles State Championships in June. Division winners of the WV State Championship earn a trip to compete in the North American Regional finals in August. Since 2019, women have been able to compete for a Women’s Championship or a Novice 4 Championship, but not both. Registration fee is $10.
Singles Registration begins at 12:00. Bowling begins at 1:00
