The Prairieland Region Jaycees in conjunction
with the Lincoln Jaycees will be hosting a nine-pin, no-tap bowling
tournament on March 4, starting at noon, at Landmark Lanes on Dries
Lane in Peoria to raise funds for their charitable work throughout
Five-person male, female or mixed teams will be able to bowl three
games with a complimentary free shoe rental, while enjoying a
limited amount of free beer and soda, for $80 per team. Teams can
begin bowling at either noon or 4 p.m. and will compete for a number
of "fun" prizes. Registration begins at 11 a.m. for the noon shift
and at 3 p.m. for the 4 p.m. shift.
Entry forms can be obtained by
calling (309) 635-4280 or by writing to Prairieland Jaycees, 3904 N.
Vincent Ave. A, Peoria Heights, IL 61616. Completed forms and checks
made payable to Prairieland Region Jaycees must be received by March
1. Entries postmarked prior to Feb. 18 will receive a $10 discount
on the entry fee.
"This tournament is more social than series bowling," said
Gretchen Cookson, project chair for Prairieland Jaycees. "The
nine-pin, no-tap format can make even an average bowler into a 300
bowler. There will be team as well as individual awards, but the
emphasis is on socializing and just having fun bowling."

The Jaycees provide individuals between the age of 18 and 40 the
opportunity to develop personal and leadership skills while serving
their community. The Lincoln chapter of the Jaycees conducts
approximately 30 projects per year, including the 50-50 at Lincoln
Speedway and the annual Haunted House out at the fairgrounds, as
well as projects that the group helps support, such as Angel Tree,
Relay For Life and various other community projects. At the end of
the fiscal year, all of the profit generated from chapter projects
less chapter expenses is funneled back into the community.
The Lincoln chapter has its monthly general meeting on the first
Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. at the Moose Lodge, located at the
Budget Inn on North Kickapoo in Lincoln.
