Subject: This may sound silly, but.....
don't have the contact info in front of me, so I'll ask
... do we have specifically request a special achievement
award when qualified for?
Our entire team is new to league bowling, and aside from
myself, virtually new to blowing in general... and still not
quite familiar with all the ins & outs of bowling in a
sanctioned league, which has been explained several times.
After receiving our USBC cards/letters in the mail (8 weeks
after my league sec. told us to expect it), and checking out
the website, I've discovered that our new/frustrated bowlers
have each qualified for at least one of the special
achievement awards (160gm w/ <120avg, 140 over series avg,
400 series w/ <115avg, etc, etc).
12 weeks into the league it seems that at least half the
league has already rec'd some award... and with 3 new
bowlers stuggling to be above 100 all 3 games, I ignorantly
assumed that they never qualified for anything.
I could understand pointing something out that wouldn't
appear on the score sheet, such as a 7-10, or Dutch 200, but
for the game/series-based achievement awards, is it typical
to have to request them, or are they usually noticed &
handled for by the secretary automatically?
My teamate's frustrations-levels have been high at times as
they learn... it'd be nice for their achievements, no matter
how small, to be rewarded.
