Time to hit the road for 44 youth bowlers from Buffaloe Lanes Family Bowling Centers in North Carolina. This group of kids ranging in age from 11 to 20 years old will make the 600 plus mile trip north to Buffalo, New York, where they will compete in the 2014 Junior Gold Championships.
A record field of 2,770 youth bowlers are registered to compete in this national tournament with the hopes of making Junior Team USA and also walking away with a piece of the more than $200,000 scholarship prize fund.
Registration and practice sessions begin on Saturday and the qualifying rounds begin Monday. The Buffaloe Lanes Jr. Gold Team qualifiers had some last minute practice and coaching this past Saturday.
Safe travels and good luck to all of these boys and girls at the 2014 Junior Gold Championships. Look for updates during the tournament on the Buffaloe Lanes website, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and right here on our blog.
