The youth league is still looking for more individuals to join the 6-to-12-year old league. Youth scholarships are available through some tournaments, which are based on performance-based bowling achievements in tournaments.

Some of the adult leagues would also like to have a few more bowlers - participants do not have to have a "great" average since all leagues are currently handicapped leagues. If you haven't bowled in a year or two, don't let that stop you from coming out to join a league.

Black Oak will hold its monthly Senior No-Tap on Oct. 4.
